Hello, I am a little new here. I am kind of a newb with a lot of things. I did root my device and replaced the boot images.. but i do not know how to make themes. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to help by making a theme for me?

I added some images as to what i am looking to have done, that is of course anyone is willing to help. it is fairly simple i am looking to get the color scheme and kids icons if possible... maybe have a little fun with the clock or not if its too much work.

If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it... i am a graphic designer more than a programmer.. a lot of this is confusing to me.

I really like this site and hopefully i can be of some help at some point. This is my first post but i plan on posting a lot more.

hello good afternoon, I'm also new here, a nwb, also wanted to make a theme if you want we can join the two to make one .

Do you realise that you just replied to a post made over eleven years ago?

I suspect @RandumAccess has worked out how to theme his device by now ?

Icon pack: how to target app drawer in xml files?

Hello everyone,
sorry for the (maybe) stupid question but I was unable to figure it out by myself and couldn't find a solution by searching here across the forums.

I'm creating my first icon pack. While I know how to target the apps for auto-apply (activity name, basically) I was wondering if there was a way to target the app drawer icon in the appfilter, appmap and theme_resources xml files.

Thank you!
-M.

Canvas AOD from OnePlus, but for Samsung.

I am interested in the Canvas AOD feature that OnePlus has now. I am using a Samsung Galaxy s20. Is there a mod for the Canvas AOD or magisk module that would let me use it on my s20?

Steps to create a theme-
  1. Open the theme in the editor that you want to implement or import the Base theme.
  2. Use CSS and start editing and adding styles that will lead to some changes that you will see while developing the theme.
  3. Create the HTML template.
  4. Create partials.
  5. Add colour variations and user options for the theme.
  6. Zip up the theme and import it, and test it.
  7. Make the theme's screenshot.

1. The post you just answered was written 12 years ago 😂

2. You don't use CSS and HTML to create Android themes.

Hey, I'm running on xiaomi redmi note 9 pro using AOSP custom rom of Android 11, I'm coming from android nougat and would really love to get the quick settings look and feel of the nougat as I find it much better.

Here is what I refer to:
Quick-Settings-in-Android-Nougat-1.jpeg


Can someone tell me if it's possible to modify my current quick settings to look and behave like that? If so, could you please tell me what I need to learn/read in order to do that?

Thanks! :)

How can I have the fully black WhatsApp theme, without Root?
And I don't mean the standard dark-mode on WhatsApp. In the past I did this with root.

Can I disable root without losing dark/black settings?

    I would like to change the text color of the popup panel or menu to white.

    paneltext.jpg


    I have a nexus one, using CM6, and decompiled my framework-res.apk. I found in the Value folder that the styles.xml has the following that is relevant to changing the panel text color. The code:

    <item name="panelBackground">@drawable/menu_background</item>
    <item name="panelFullBackground">@drawable/menu_background_fill_parent_width</item>
    <item name="panelColorForeground">?textColorPrimaryInverse</item>
    <item name="panelColorBackground">#ffffffff</item>
    <item name="panelTextAppearance">?textAppearanceInverse</item>

    I did several things but the text is still black.

    1)I removed "Inverse",
    2)changed the "panelColorBackground" to #ff000000 and, left "panelColorForeground" "panelTextAppearance" alone.
    3)removed "Inverse"

    Nothing helps. Do you have any idea?

    After I changed the styles.xml, I recompiled, copied original AndroidManifest.xml and META-INF folder to the modded framework-res.apk, then pushed. Is any of the following incorrect?

    please help

    In the styles.xml change:

    <style name="TextAppearance.Widget.IconMenu.Item" parent="@style/TextAppearance.Small">
    <item name="textColor">?textColorPrimaryInverse</item>

    to

    <style name="TextAppearance.Widget.IconMenu.Item" parent="@style/TextAppearance.Small">
    <item name="textColor">@color/bright_foreground_dark</item>

    why do we need to zip the files in linux? By the way thanks for the theming for dummies guide. ;)

    I don't know why, something about how linux packages zip files opposed to windows, and yes once I figure it out and find all the problems people can have I am going to make up a nice walkthrough on making themes. But I wouldn't be surprised if there were already some theme manager apps in the works to make this whole process easier.

    Nice concept...but I`m not sure if you have looked at this topic http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=467639 It describe how to make a theme and stuff, good starting point anyways. Hope it helps!

    Im teaching myself how to make themes as well. I have found it best to read through that walkthrough a million times and then PM a couple of the dev guys to answer specific questions.

    Basically this is the process:

    - Take a theme that you like for RC30 or ADP1 or whatever you wanna make it in

    - Extract 2 folders inside, app, and framework into a new folder on your computer

    - Rename add a .zip to the end of the apk files and extract them all so you have a bunch of folders with your app names

    - Go into res and find any folder that says drawable and inside of there are the files to edit for your theme. Make sure not to edit the .9.png files.

    - Once all your editing is done get into linux and turn all the folders back into zip files, then turn them back into apk files.

    - Then take your app folder and framework folder that contain the new files and in linux create it into one zip file.

    - Then you send the file back to windows, get the SignAPK files, put your zip in the folder with the SignAPK files and run some commands in the CMD to resign the file.

    - Then rename that file update.zip and put it on the SDcard and give it a whirl.



    This is how I understand the process after talking to a couple people for the last few days. I am hoping to release my own theme soon and if it works you will know that these steps are right. LOL And dont follow those directions, they are just to give you an idea of the steps involved.
