Here is my take on ChanceM's RedRom for Serendipity VII.

This is my first attempt, so I appreciate input and suggestions if you have any.

HUGE Thank you's go out to:
MikeyMike01 & ChanceM: for making a Rom as great as Serendipity VII
ChanceM: For the original RedRom theme, and for convincing me to do this.
xtremekilla09: For his incredible red dialer.apk that goes perfectly with this.
XDA Forums: For having thousands of answers for me when I needed them.
bryman27: For basically holding my hand through this whole process, putting up with my questions, and for his sound advice and support. Thank you Texas brother.

Boot Animation

GoogleQuickSearchBox
Launcher

Looks good man. I know it was designed using a Captivate ROM as the base. But would I be able to throw it on my Evo to test it out?

Thanks for the theme, I was wondering if you purposely left out a red theme wallpaper?

If that was not intentional (and I don't see why it would be) then I'd be happy to tell you how to fix it.

Looks good. I'm glad you got this out there for other people to enjoy, and now comes the fun part, support and improving upon it.

I don't think they would place nice together, but maybe there are some elements of it you could use.

I included red versions of the wallpapers that came with Serendipity VII.

Much like silly putty it was not intentional, but I thought the result was interesting enough to bounce off other people.

Ok, so the red wallpaper is set to default, however I forgot to include it in the wallpaper folder. In the meantime, use this one:

Well either way here's the deal:

That image is a NinePatch image. You can tell because it ends in .9.png.

What this means is that the system will stretch the image to fill a given space according to a special one pixel border.

In order to see the border you must decompile the image with APK Manager or a similar tool.

When you edit the image without decompiling, you effectively destroy the NinePatch data and it stretches the entire image to fill the space rather than the areas indicated as stretchable.

P.S. The point of this is to use one image for multiple things, like different sized buttons
