notepad ++ > [url="http://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v6.3.html"]http://notepad-plus-...nload/v6.3.html[/url][/size]


[b]FIRST[/b]

[size=4]adding the CoverFlow code

decompile framework.jar with "jar decompiler / compiler"

navigate to
android\widget\

download this .rar, > [attachment=87665:ADD-TO-WIDGET.rar]
extract it and add all the files into the above directory (just the files not folder)

now we are done with the framework, compile it and add the new classes.dex inside the framework.jar (use 7zip)

now add the new framework.jar back into your ROM .zip (drag & drop into the framework directory)[/size]


[b]SECOND [/b]

[size=4]download and extract the tools we will be using to your desktop[/size]
[b]Link: [url="http://www.solidfiles.com/d/0ccb7fea7f/"]Here[/url][/b]

[size=4][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]you should now have a [b]"ResignUpdateV2.1.3"[/b] folder, add your ROM to the folder, and the two .apk from this .rar > [/font][attachment=87666:ADD-APK.rar]
[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]copy the whole name of your ROM including the .zip part
right click on "ResignUpdate.bat" and select open with [b][url="http://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v6.3.html"]notepad++[/url][/b]
replace "system.zip" with the name of your ROM by highlighting it then pressing paste
[b]save and exit.[/b]

open your ROMs .zip and navigate to [b]system\app[/b] find Phone.apk, drag and drop it into [b]"ResignUpdateV2.1.3"[/b], then close.[/font]
[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]now right click on Phone.apk and select open, drag and drop the " META-INF" folder into [/font][b]"ResignUpdateV2.1.3"[/b]
[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]now you can close and delete the Phone.apk as we just wanted the folder we took.[/font]

[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]right click on the two .apk you extracted and select open, delete the " META-INF" folder from both .apk[/font]
[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]now drag and drop the " META-INF" folder we took from phone in to both .apk, once its updated close.[/font]

[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]open your ROMs .zip and drag and drop both .apk into the [b]system\app[/b] folder, then close.

now double click [b]"ResignUpdate.bat"[/b] and your new ROM zip will be created

Toggle2G will also be added to the ROM, so if you don't want it just delete it from the app folder of your new ROM .zip[/font][/size]

[size=4][b][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]​flash with a full wipe... including format system [/font][/b][/size]

[center][b]GUIDE TO ADD FROM SOURCE[/b][/center]


[b]FIRST[/b]

Extract the .zip to your desktop,

[attachment=87692:source.zip]

now i will assume you are in the root of your source folder

copy the CoverFlow.java file into

frameworks_base / core / java / android / widget


[b]SECOND[/b]

where ever you have your "ThemeChooser" source,[b] delete[/b] it and replace it with the one from the zip
([b]example: [/b]vender / tmobile / apps)

do the same for ThemeManager
([b]example: [/b]vender / tmobile / providers)

and then the same for the libs
([b]example: [/b]vender / tmobile / libs)

to avoid compile errors don't build dirty, (delete the [b]"out"[/b] folder)

[/quote]

yeah, was looking at it the other day,
only problem is, my themes heavily use the styles.xml which can't be changed and may never be possible apparently :(

i might actually make a theme from scratch for it though
