One of the greatest strength of Android is user customization. This is what makes our favorite OS unique. No two homescreen are alike. Widgets, wallpapers, and icons, almost everything you see can be replaced, themed and modified.

So without further ado, this thread will help you maximize your ability to theme and create your very own take on the Android experience. Enjoy!
