Red face package it for me?
Hey I was wondering if anyone could package my files for me?
I don't know linux commands at all and am lost... I did manage to edit the files but I can't put them back together.

If anyone could help with my New problem I would be very grateful!

randumaccess.com/r.a%20rc30.zip
That is the zip with the folders I edited.

Thanks

Yes, you can make the update.zip in Windows as long as you have the update script I wrote in linux and you do not edit, or open it in Windows. If you do it will get corrupted.

Stericson

So as long as we take that empty update.zip and just throw the apk's in their respective folders and resign the zip when we are done it should be good to go?

how do you do the themes in windows?
heres what i did:
1. I unzipped a theme
2. renamed apk's to zip's
3. unzipped each folder
4. edited the drawable files
5. zipped the folders with winrar
6. renamed them back to apk's
7. then i took the update script from Stericson and opened it with winrar and threw them in the app/framework folders

it didnt work for me.
I dont know linux and use windows, i am a newb with a lot of this stuff. I would like to know so i can create themes to my liking.

any help you could give me would be great!
i have all the files edited i just need to package them now.

thanks,

make sure you zip the folders inside the main folder. If you're working on launch folder, zip the folder inside the folder named launch not the launch folder itself.

Request for themes
I'm really liking the fact that there are so many themes coming out for Android. I would like to ask a favor of the theme builders though. Would it be possible to build in the browser apk with auto rotate in it?
