I wounder if it is possible to change the color n the menus, sms and notification menus in Miui?
You can download the color theme after it asks apply choose yes under the tabs see 1) lock screen 2) home screen etc. uncheck and leave only system after click apply three items appear Restart, not now, Cancel, do not now and then the bar that loaded this appears go to The ma menu and click customize the Thema go to messages click the current tab appears on side is yours that you have chosen click see apply click and then Restart the others leave them alone example icons is the current one if you choose another icon it does not apply because you have checked only system.
Good luck

Does the "Themes" app of Xiaomi Chinese version has the same features of the Global version one? And are all these features paid on the Chinese one?

Any way to use Android Kitkat 4.4 icons?

I have a Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro running android 12 and MIUI 13. I used to love how the Android 4.4 Kitkat icons looked like and I am wondering is there any way, app or anything WITHOUT ROOT that I could use to make all my icons looks like the Android Kitkat 4.4 icons?

Hello friends, I want to design a theme that can be installed on different launchers and I can publish it on Google Play. Is there a special program for this? Or is there a tutorial to learn how to make Android themes?

(Samsung) APK from manually installed theme not showing in app list

I tried installing a theme yesterday from the touchwiz for one ui themes thread, and It wasnt showing up in the themes, or in the app list. I was able to remove it when it popped up in the themes list.
I tried extracting the individual apks from the theme file, and installed the apk for the icons, but its not showing up in the themes page, or in the app list, even after a reboot.
What do I do now as I dont want random apks to live in my phone.

I am on One UI 5 btw.

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


    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>


    <style name="TextAppearance.Widget.IconMenu.Item" parent="@style/TextAppearance.Small">
    <item name="textColor">@color/bright_foreground_dark</item>
    Nice concept...but I`m not sure if you have looked at this topic It describe how to make a theme and stuff, good starting point anyways. Hope it helps!

    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.
    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 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.
