[10.30.12][TOOLS][TUTS]Let My People THEME!!![WIP]
I would like to see everyone getting evolved with personalizing there phone to their liking. Minor theming is not hard at all (i can do it lol). But its opens a door to what can be done with alot of effort from you. We wont have this phone forever, and it is a difficult one to mod, so by starting on this one it should only get easier... right?
Im gonna be stepping back on theming and mod investigations for a few weeks, im still in process of moving and everything is getting packed soon, un packed when house is ready in couple weeks.
These are necessities for tools to start customizing your rom.
