Hello. I'd like to introduce myself. I am Bubba from the AT&T Note 3, Note, and Infuse forums. I have had several people PM me asking for help or information on starting to theme. So I decided to start a learning thread.
WHAT THIS THREAD IS: A place to gather the basics to get you started if you want to learn. A place to ask questions about theming and theming issues. A place to interact with Recognized and Unrecognized themers as well as people who are at your level or maybe the next level you will reach. A place you can learn from advanced, intermediate, and beginners, and maybe even yourself. A place where any theming question can be asked and hopefully answered. Keep in mind I am no expert. I will do the best I can, and I have enlisted the help of a few of my Teammates to help us out. We are all from Team Alliance.
WHAT THIS THREAD IS NOT: This is not a place to request themes or apps to be themed. This is not a place for flaming or negative opinions of others works.
WHO WILL HELP OUT: Myself,lacoursiere18, daveyannihilation, Tired Storeman, Mikeymopar, Nunhugger, sparky b, and hopefully a few others will be stopping in to help.
WHAT CAN I LEARN TO THEME? We expect to cover TW apps as well as other apps. 4.4 as well as 4.3
WHO THE HECK ARE YOU? A little background on me. I started learning to theme just over 2 years ago. I released my first theme (A theme chooser theme) as a gift for myself and anyone else on my 50th birthday .. (so you are NOT too old to learn) with the help and guidance of a great friend and fellow "The Family" member ppalbicke who is truly the most patient man ever created lol. I am now on the forever locked AT&T Note 3, so no more Theme Chooser. So I am continually learning to theme TW apks and I keep intergrating other apps into the theme I want to keep building.
IS THIS A STRICK ON TOPIC STUFFY THREAD? Hell no.I want this thread to run a like every "favorite" thread I have been involved in. Light humor is not only permitted.. but encouraged. Trust me ... you will need humor as a stress relief for this stress relieving hobby.
So ... if your in ... tell your wives/husbands, boyfriend/girlfriend goodbye .. this will soon become an obsession. You will want to do nothing but make every app you see "purty". Trust me .. my wife hates my phone. "Why can't you just leave it alone dammit".
OKAY BUBBA.. SHADDUP AND GET THIS STARTED: Okay then .. here we go. I have packaged up some basic tools and links you will need to get started. You will find the link in post #2
