  • Posting a new theme?
So you just made your theme and are ready to share your greatest work with everyone?

Just keep in mind a few things:

When you post your theme please start the title of the thread with [ *device* Theme], where Device is the device it was built for. This we know what it is and what is was made for.

Also please include in the title what version it is for, such as RC33, ADP1.1, adp1.5, etc.
Lastly, please use the same thread for multiple versions of your theme. For instance, use the same thread for an adp1.1 version and for an RC33 version.

That's all we ask, thanks for working so hard on your theme and allowing us to use it!

Sorry I thought this would be the best place to put this...

I learned the hard way that JF1.51ADP themes do not work on JF1.51US builds and will put the phone into a loop (i did this twice to verify)... I have not found another sticky that specifies this, so I thought perhaps this one should include that.

Sorry if I'm in the wrong place, just delete this post then.
