It was nice and easy changing the graphics. Was wondering if anyone's tried this with their Slide so far? I know sometimes (only if done wrong) it could cos infinite boot = nandroid. Not sure I want to try it just yet, anyone out there doing any themeing so far? If so, how'd you do it?
Im working on one right now...i got the red slide but it has no red themes to speak of...the Fuzzy_Kittens one has a kindof a red theme to it, but all the selectors and highlights and button_press's are all still blue, and its UGLY. so im working on eradicating all the blue, in favor of red.
For the most part its the same as themeing for the G1. There's a LOT more apks in /system to make changes to, and ive found that theres TWO frameworks to take care of, the normal android framework-res.apk, and the also in /system/framework there is com.htc.resources.apk, which is apparently htc's version of framework-res. it contains all kinds of images called common_<whatever>.png and this is where i found the files that make up the default "Nest" theme. all the other themes that you can choose for the Slide are in .apk form and up until we had root i was modifying and installing the apk's to theme this puppy, but i could never find the .apk for the default theme...well thats why, the default theme is in com.htc.resources.apk, and its the default espresso theme, not a tmobile theme.
Im still working on my theme, its not ready yet, i just had yesterday to work on it, and ive made some progress, but i still have to get a generic 2.1 ROM to build so i can extract the xmls from it to inject into the ROM to change colors that are coded like progressbars, white backgrounds, etc. so whenever i get time for that ill be rollin...then i wanna try to get colorchange.jar to work on SlideMEROOT2 so i can change the clock and notif. text and stuff...alll in due time!
