Hello, I just installed themer yesterday. It is now one of my fav apps of all time xD .
However, today I been trying to side load themes into themer without success, as i gathered from some websites and from a video by the one of the peeps at mycolorscreen: you just copy the zipped theme folder onto the folder called " Exported" and then to "Zips "(found in mycolorscreen->themer, on the phone), with that done the new themes should be visible in the themer app in My themes>Exported>zip option .
My problem is that I can't find any folder called exported or export inside my themer file directory in the phone, I checked everywhere , there is nothing like that. So I ended up creating a folder called export and then a folder called zip inside it , but still I cannot access this from the themer app ( Mythemes-> exported->zip->choose the new app ) .
Please help !

Hi,

Try this:
1. Long press on the homescreen - Advanced - More - Export Theme (give it any name).
2. Once saved, it will create a .zip file in the /sdcard/MyColorScreen/Themer/Exported/zip folder.
3. Place your .zip files into the same folder.
4. To find the themes - look in the My Themes - Exported section in the Theme Browser.

Good luck!

Thanks a lot for the help bro, much appreciated.
I loaded the app, but some of the app button shortcuts look weird, all of them has an icon of a folder, but when i press on them they seem to be shortcuts to google play, or youtube or stuff like that.

Once again, thanks for the super fast reply.

When sideloading themes, you can often get one that doesn't follow Themer's guidelines, meaning that the user will set shortcuts to his/her personal preferences.
