Hi.

This is tutorial "how to make themes to QQLauncher". It's pretty easy

What you need:
- Android 1.5+ phone
- QQLauncher
- 7-Zip
- Notepad++
- Photoshop, GIMP or whatever you like for resizing pngs

-----------------------------------

1. First you need to install QQLauncher (like a normal app).

2. Then download theme from online gallery (follow menu button -> Theme -> Theme gallery -> choose one of themes, i.e. "复古印象"), but don't apply it!

3. Now connect your phone to computer and navigate to "sdcard/QQLauncher". You need to copy "log.log" file and theme (with strange chinesse name) from "theme" folder to your desktop.

4. Open your "log.log" file with Notepad++ and you'll see lines like these:



- in blue square there is app name
- in yellow app package name (like in "data/app")
- in red app activity name - we need this to name icon

5. Find icon which you want to add (if you need to resize it, there are recommended sizes <because QQLauncher doesn't support icon scalling>: for HDPI 86x86 to 90x90 and MDPI 53x53 to 65x65) and rename it to this "com.cih.gamecih2.gamecih" (you need to write all name in lowercase, otherwise it won't work!)



6. Open your theme file with 7-Zip and copy icon to "icons" folder.

7. If you want to have other dockbar background, you need to replace "dock_bg.png" file in "icons" folder.

8. If you want to have other app background for apps without definied icons, you need to replace "appbackground.png" file in "icons" folder.

9. Copy your theme file to "sdcard/QQLauncher/theme" and apply it in Theme gallery

----------------------------

Hmmm, I don't see it in your log file. Try to find apk file in "data/app" and then search for it in log

Cheers!
