I was over complicating it, your guide works great. Thank you very much.
The only thing not working is 3rd party apps, but at least it works.

I just read that some people aren't getting the accent to display correctly in 3rd party apps and that it was becuase there are no xamlbins for the accents. Has anyone using this noticed that? On my device everything works fine just as it is.

I had to edit the xamlbin files to get accent colors to show up on my phone for 3rd party apps (did not use the app from this thread but used some of the knowledge here). I had edited just the xaml file and it did not work.

Any chance on building a color changer App like the pre-mango one from advanced config based on heathcliffs SDK?

If I had a better understanding of how to code stuff I would but I'm a novice.

You wrote these custom accent XAP's and you don't have a good understanding of how to code stuff? You're a novice?!! :)

I wish I was HALF as smart about these things as YOU are, sir!

Thank you for your work - it's MUCH appreciated!

I'm more of a script kiddie. I can normally figure out what some basic stuff does and I can manipulate it most times to do my bidding but unless it's something very very basic I have a hard time coding stuff from scratch. I'm sure I could figure it out eventually if I worked at it long enough but I'm very lazy. That said, glad you like my work and thanks for the thanks
