You can mod your phone in no time with less hassle and you can start making great themes for everyone. And you don't need to wait for anyone to do the job for you.

Let's bring competition to table. There are many brilliant Roms out there (Cyanogen,Miui,...) but not all devices can have the same theme or mod since their device is not supported. I'm sure many of you guys have different taste, ideas, and can improve the look of your Rom. Let's theme our Android Roms ourselves and give our Developers a break

It is not easy to find all the tutorials in one place and not spending hours in XDA website to learn something. I myself have learned a lot from XDA, other Devs and using try and error method.

These tutorials would be super easy even for someone who had never done theming before. If I find time I will include images too.
Tutorials will teach u how to theme almost every App you have (ADW, LauncherPro, Go Launcher,...). There are other guides out there and u r welcome to use them but what makes mine different is that details and tricks will be covered. Tutorials should be fast and easy. I myself got tired of reading long confusing tutorials and still came up with questions.

So bring your skills on the table and post your themes in XDA website.

I will update tutorials and add new ones every week. I won't post them in the thread to avoid long pages and keep the thread clean. I will always include sample files with tutorials so you can learn theming with an example. How cool is that!


You can apply these techniques in any rom. My sample files are for CM7 just to give you an idea where the files are located and how to apply them.

I won't provide direct downloading cause I run out of bandwidth quickly and you can save tutorials on your phone and read them wherever you want


Help me to find mistakes and improve tutorials and I will include video tutorials for the revised, improved written tutorials later.

Theming part I is a quick tutorial to apply changes to "framework" and some "system apk" (Phone.apk, SystemUI.apk, ...).

Support the thread and I will add more tutorials. Please don't forget the "Thanks Button"


Check out the images for one of my works for Nexus one on XDA site-->Link

DONATE TO ME
coolness will take a look on part I. I myself am starting on an android theme for cm7. I really can't wait and I have a concept lined up for it. So it would be nice for a tutorial since I am just starting and I know there are a lot out there but it sounds like you know the android modding "game" and your theme is awesome :3

So pretty please finish this thanks =)

My pleasure! I also learned things the hard way First part might look like a draft ( took me 2.5 hours) but it will be improved gradually. I just started this tutorials so I won't claim the best tutorials yet lol but I'm going to make it happen

People might get bored reading my long OP so I changed colors to make it easier to read. Trust me it was extra work for me but I thought it might help lol
