I decided to write a Manila Customizer that will work Similar to HHC for Kaiser.
The app can be unzipped anywhere but i suggest \Internal Storage\Program Files\ManilaCustomizer

The Clocks are stored in Whatever path\ManilaCustomiser\Clocks
The Icons are stored in Whatever path\ManilaCustomiser\Icons
The Sliders are stores in Whatever path\ManilaCustomizer\Sliders
The TopCurtains are stores in Whatever path\ManilaCustomizer\TopCurtains
The BottomCurtains are stores in Whatever Path\ManilaCustomizer\BottomCurtains

The app will look for a .jpg file in order to be able to display and add a Clock theme and same goes for icons etc
So if you want to add a clock Called FireLighter then simply Create a Folder :

\Whateverpath\ManilaCustomizer\Clocks\Firelighter <-The Folder where the Manila Files are
\Whateverpath\ManilaCustomizer\Clocks\Firelighter.jpg <- The image that will be displayed

Note the Jpeg and the folder has to be the exact same spelling.
If the system finds a .jpg it will look for a folder by the same name and move all those files into \Windows upon selecting the Clock Set.

Same goes for the Icons and all others

There are a few special files in \ManilaCustomizer\*.txt. When an Item is applied the files for the Item (eg Clock) is stored in these files and when a new Item is applied it will first delete the files from the previous Item and then Apply the new Item (was changed to work this way in ver 0.6)

Please give feedback. Thanx

Ok i decided to split it into three parts for now. Application , Clocks, Icons.

So unzip Clocks into WhateverPAth\ManilaCustomizer\Clocks and same with icons

IVe only tested this on original installed black Manila on WWE Rom

Credit goes to the Following People so far who Supplied Clocks and Icons

NisseDILLIGAF
Panosha
lexxirae
ProphecyXR
doc31 - Sticker Icons
skilty - Added a zip file with three new sets of everyting. Very nice

If there are some clocks here that belong to anyone please pm me and ill add your name to the credits :)

Done :
Clocks \ManilaCustomizer\Clocks
Icons \ManilaCustomizer\Icons
Sliders \ManliaCustomizer\Sliders
TopCurtains \ManilaCustomizer\TopCurtains
BottomCurtains \ManilaCustomizer\BottomCurtains


Please Check Post two. Delete the whole app before reinstalling. Fixed all Clocks etc
Wanna Say Special thanx to NisseDILLIGAF for his help. I dont know much about Manila files but he has helped me a lot

The ManilaCustomizer.Zip file includes 2 samples of every item cause some people dont understand the directory structure to well. Hope this helps

Garp69 Took it upon himself to maintain all graphics for this app And Im Very Thankfull for him for that please have a look here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=2891202#post2891202

ChangeLog

Ver 0.1 - Initial Test Version, Only First Tab Worked for Clocks

Ver 0.2 - Added Icons Tab and Made it functional

Ver 0.3 - Rewrote Whole app and made it finger friendly.
- All Tabs Working Now, Clocks,Icons,Sliders,Top Curtain,Bottom Curtain

Ver 0.4 - Manilla Automatically Disabled at Start of Program and Started on Program Exit by using this app : http://www.ictinus.com/NoPluginsToday/

Ver 0.5 Fixed Finger sliding (was working wrong way around)
- Added Option to remove all manila files in windows

Version 0.5 Included Top/Bottom Curtains and Sliders in Manilacustomizer05.zip Please delete all old clocks and icons and curtains and sliders. I fixed all problems i think and old files might cause complications

Ver 0.6 Changed the way the thesmes are handled. It seems like to many different clocks, Icons and sliders use too many different files. The system will now store the files to be deleted for every item. SO when a new Item is applied it will delete all the files from the previous Item before applying new files, then store the new files and delete them again next time a new item is applied. No new files required it will use ResetClock.txt etc


Ver 0.7 Alot was changed. So please delete all files and folders and unpack the main zip files
System will now backup any item before it will apply a new one
Option to Restore from last backup
All manila files can be backed up (Not really recommended because it can be over 1000 files and take 8meg - im looking for a better colution)
Confirmation added before Resetting all manila files
Slide option is changed so when last item is reached it will got to first one and when first is reached it will jump to last

Version 0.8 Item Backup and Restore working 100%
Complete Manila backup will look at rom date and backup all manila files thats different so backup can be as little as 2 files if onl a clock was changed instead of backing up all manila files.
Manila Restore working perfectly as well

Version 0.9 Added Backgrounds and Touch Focus. Still busy with better backup solution. Look for Panorama Backgrounds on http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=3412257&postcount=748

Uninstall old version and reinstall new one, you wont loose any of ur custom items

Another one

Busy with at the moment :

Added Touch Focus Colours - Done
Added WallPaper Change option - Done


Adding Custom Option so people can have own special settings etc. Will be added Under Clocks/Sliders/Etc will also have an undo option for that

Adding functionality so one can enter a name when backing up full manila so custom themes can be backed up and restored....would be nice for saving multiple favourite looks.

all my themes have the slider ( you can see it in pictures)

the slider : 1e29e8e7_manila

i've got an idea :

make the choice to have the background behind the icons and the background of provider and date (black, colored, semi transparent or not)

background icons : 1864da05_manila

background provider and date : 18c460d8_manila

Ok im confused i dont know much about the inner workings of Manila.

If you say background icons, background provider and date can you be more specific to what it is exactly then i can do that.

Im going to ad invisible top/bottom bar next and different sliders

Awesome..

Well done Grumps.
Was waiting for a programmer to tackle the whole customisation of the TouchFLO 3D interface.
I have a rapidshare premium account at your disposal when your project is completed.
Is there any chance of changing the weather graphics in this as well?, extra tab would be good to i.e calander tab, missed call, comm-manager etc.

Once again a big thank you from all at XDA-Developers..:)
