You have to disable signature check in services.jar (SUPERUSER MOD) because system is always checking your themes(apps) keys.

We don't have those keys to sign our apps, only Sony has them, so we must disable/delete that part of code in services.jar. / Patching services.jar

To do that you have to be able to change your system files - you need administrative rights or in one work root.

He had some problems with it - color code was added in a wrong way.

3rd party themes?
I really doubt that but if you need those files I'll upload them.

As long as you only replace png files it'll work.
You can't add png because you have to add few things more besides png (line in public.xml, line in string, style or color...)

So, if you have home_background.png and you want to change it.
Extract it with winzip, edit and put it back.

That will work on any apk file.

DON'T DO THAT ON 9.PNG FILES
