Since the carriers were split up and the most posts in the original thread came from the AT&T themers, I think we should make that the main thread.
[All Carriers]Touch Wiz Themeing Questions
Please post in the thread linked above so we can keep all the info in one thread.

Thanks,
Shane


Since themeing Samsung's TouchWiz UI is not quite as simple as AOSP, and sometimes even device specific, I thought it would be nice to have thread for the themers here to help each other, post tips and things like that so we can all learn and get some killer themes going on this thing.

Also, (if this gets becomes a sticky) we can keep the themeing question threads to a minimum.

For those of you that don't know me, I've been themeing Android for about a year and a half now. I started on the Epic 4G then moved over to the Nexus S 4G. I'm always willing to help others at time permits.

Happy Themeing!

Since the US carriers were combined into one forum, please note the carrier for you device when posting.

When people are helping you make sure you use the "Thanks" button to show your appreciation!

Here are some goodies that have been posted so far.

Looking forward to your work again Shane.
Loved your 'Dark Horse' port on the Epic.
Hopefully our GS3's get some Shane 'Dark Horse' themed love of some kind too

Well, with all the US variants merged to together this could get sticky in here. Hopefully we don't have any issues with soft bricks, data mishaps or anything like that like we did in the Galaxy S days from using themes for different carriers.

i have a version of systemui i modified for att
I have custom battery icons (not 1% as i used 7zip instead of a full rebuild)

i was able to change the battery icons,
loudness/slilent icon, airplane icon, wifi icons, alarm icon etc.

but for some reason the signal icon changes are not being applied.. i tried clearing cache, and dalvek cache.. still no go..

CAnnot figure out where it is getting the old icons from.. looked in framework-res as well but as far as i can tell they are not in there..

I have changed these sucessfully before in ics on my sgs ii..

anyone have any ideas?

thanks
