If you are trying to get around redoing all the apps, you need to ensure that the apps haven't been updated since the last copy. There is a utility that will do a compare, something that I need to bookmark so I can add it to be able to use as a reference.
Examples are like going from the 5.0.5's to the 5.0.6, when the ability to move apps back and forth between internal and sd-ext, this option was not in Settings, it's in MediaProvider, so if you had themed it before, you need to replace it with the new copy and put the images back in again.
ROM to ROM these things are different also (for services, framework-res; most apps are the same minus the ones carrying options like Settings, MediaProvider and SpareParts). So you want to redo them for that.
Edit: This may be a good question to add to an appendix of the doc as a reference only thing, I'll give that some thought.
Looks great and thanx i hate having to dig thru 7 million bookmarks for different theming posts. Thought i'd throw this out there you might know this already and it may be too detailed but google changed the color code line in the blue_button.xml in Calculator.apk/res/drawable to 08 00 00 1D instead of ending with a C. I haven't seen any other xmls with that change but it's something to keep an eye out for in the future if a search for 08 00 00 1C doesn't get any results and dunno if this will help but here http://markcarson.com/markcarson/ColorCalc.html is a color calculator that i use to get my xml hex colors. It has some presets and you can adjust the lightness and sat to your liking, so all you have to do is reverse it and add the aa after you find the color your looking for.
Nope, nothing is too detailed I figure anything that dives into a lot of detail, like when I add in the meanings in the xml that Stericson wrote, I'm going to add it as an appendix to the document.
Thats good to know and I'll make sure to put that in. I have seen 08 00 00 1D in a few places, but I never messed with it to see what it changed, I guess with that tip, it's time to start playing more.
I would like to slowly come up with a list of xml's we know to edit and where they are.
I've thought about adding links in for hex sites, and since you are the 2nd person to mention it, I will add it in.
Thanks amac for the inputs
