Thank you, one and all for visiting my guide to prettifying your Transform Ultra. Before we get started, this guide assumes that your phone is rooted, and running the latest version of ClockWorkMod (v126.96.36.199 as of this writing; "ClockWorkMod" will be referred to from here on as "CWM"). If any of the words I used in the previous sentence (or in the guide as a whole) sound like a foreign language to you, please visit this sticky
before proceeding any further. If you're not sure what version of CWM you're running, you can reboot into recovery, and it will tell you at the top of the screen, or you can visit the thread here
and flash it just to be safe.
As with anything that tinkers with the phone's internals, there is a risk with theming your TU. You may experience anything ranging from an almost unnoticeable glitch, up to and including turning your precious device into a designer-label toddler toy. Because of that, I've included the mandatory disclaimer. But because disclaimers are ugly, and most of us know the jist of what the disclaimer says, I've chosen to stuff it in a hidey box this time.
As of right now, this guide is written with my particular setup in mind, following the exact steps I take when making any theme. Where and when I can, I will try to make notes, additions or corrections where what you experience and what I've written may be different, but please understand that I am human, and do make mistakes.
This also doesn't mean that you have to change your computer or phone to match my specifications in order to successfully create a theme. I'm just letting you know ahead of time to minimize the number of surprises.
My setup is as follows:
-Computer: Ubuntu Linux version 10.10 (Mavrikmeercat), GIMP photo editor, Chromium (Chrome-like) and Firefox browsers
-Phone: Sprint Samsung Transform Ultra, Megatron ROM version 6.0.4, Halloween theme
One last note:
Please bear with me as I put this guide together. Given that the weekends are the only days I will have to be able to work on this, it may take me several weeks to get it all ready. I'll be doing my best to share every scrap of knowledge I have in regards to theming, and presenting it in a clear, concise, and orderly matter, and that level of detail is going to require an equal measure of time. Please forgive me in advance if I omit anything, or if a step is unclear; it probably means I was up late finishing that particular section.
Thanks again for...well, everything!
