Sigh...it's coming...I just can't get the fix to work! I know exactly what to change, but whenever I rebuild any apk all my changes revert ;) beginning to make me very angry now, I will do my best!

About the contacts bug, it's unlikely to be my fault since this theme doesn't change anything to do with contacts, except some PNGs.

Is this OK? ;)

It's late now so I'll polish it up tomorrow and upload a complete gingerbread transformation pack.

Thanks flibblesan, that's great. I was working on V2 anyway which adds a bit more "Gingerbreadness" ;) so that will fix the bug for me, great!

I'm having real problems with APKTool which is why I couldn't change it. I know that when you decompile the apk, the values folder(s) appears, and change the appropriate value in styles.xml. I know that when recompiled, this folder is part of resources.arsc...but when I extract resources.arsc and place it in my original apk, the phone never boots. I know I'm doing something wrong, but what!? It's driving me up the wall!

I had a few problems doing this. First problem was that apktool just flatly refused to recompile the theme that TheManicGibbon made so I ended up completely re-doing this on a stock B136 framework.

apktool d --keep-broken-res

Very important this. Seems that the framework has some errors which apktool doesn't like. Also should mention that using that switch didn't help with recompiling the already edited theme which sucked.

So now that apktool has decompiled the framework, it also listed some errors. I deleted the folders listed (the ones with ERR in the name) which then allowed apktool to compile the framework without any errors.

Then I edited the XML files to change colours. This guide came in useful. Make a note of the files you have edited!

Once you've finished editing your xml files and you are happy, build!

apktool b framework-res

Once built enter the 'framework-res' folder and you'll see a folder called 'build'. Enter this, then enter 'apk' folder. This is the build components of the framework.

Now the hard bits!

rename your original framework-res.apk to framework-res.zip and open with WinRAR.

Drag and drop the NEW resources.arsc file from the folder into the WinRAR window. Use compression method 'store' then press ok. That's step 1 done.

Next in the WinRAR window open the res folder. Now you need to drag and drop the edited XML files from the build/apk folder on your computer into the winrar replacing the original files. Make sure the location is correct. Use the default compression method.

Final step you need to replace images. drag and drop the new images and save using the STORE method again.

When finished close winrar and rename the framework-res.zip to framework-res.apk

And for people to play with (and ManicGibbon to look at) I've uploaded a quick pack that will flash the new theme along with edited system apps. When I release my rom I'll have a facility to theme system apps on the fly.

So this one will not work with B160?
TheManicGibbon's version worked quite well with B160, only bug was the menu text were black.

You can try it, it might work. But it's built from the B136 framework so I don't know.
