whats the difference between the themes for fission and apex, or is there no difference?
Most themes for apex don't play nicely with fission and vice-versa (or any other rom). You risk a boot loop if you don't stick with a theme designed for your rom.
ah well than that sucks
The good news is that any theme can be ported from one rom or another, what theme are you wanting to use?
i really like the nex theme but not the one fab made or the dude that made the one with the 10% batt, but the other one, and i would like to have it display the remaining batt in a circle that changes color, yes io know im, a pain in the ass but thats my dream theme
"batt in a circle that changes color"... not sure what that means.
I have the nex theme with the multi-color gradient battery mod. I've recolored many of the images and replaced all the battery icons. (Each 10% image is a different color in a complete transition from red to blue):
you got it right btw about the battery the color and the 10% increments now what i want is that battery in this theme but i also have the newist version of apex so will a port be possible? http://androidforums.com/droid-x-all-things-root/207986-theme-nex-theme-flavor-blue.html thats the theme
Thanks. It's easy enough to do.
Download and install 10% Nextheme battery mod closest to what you want.
Go to UOT Kitchen and create and download the battery icons in whatever style or color you want.
Using WinRar or other zip program, open the battery theme zip file and extract framework-res.apk to your computer.
Rename framework-res.apk to framework-res.apk.zip and open it with WinRar.
Copy new battery icons to res\drawable-hdpi in your zip file
Rename framework-res.apk.zip back to framework-res.apk
Copy updated framework to your theme zip and install it again thru CW Recovery.
but what about the 10 % increments? dont i need an an xml and how do i edit those and how do i fix the .9.pngs and the .png.pngs i tryed this once before and got totaly confused
the 10% xml is in the 10% battery theme.
... or you could just PM me your email address and I can send you mine.
ill pm you but honestly i want the theme that linked and it doent have 10 % or any % and its for 2.2 i have 2.2.1 and i have apex
This theme is for 2.2 so hope it doesn't mess anything up for you.
You will need a nextheme installed first tho so you need the same requirements as here: http://androidforums.com/droid-x-all-things-root/210016-nextheme-10-circle-battery-mod.html
yeah fab said something about them not working together well so i guess ill wait till he releases something that will work with it and ill edit it from there...hopefully
What's the worst that can happen?
i would do it if i had a full sbf or do themes only go in the system if so ill do it cuz i have the system sbf
AFAIK, the 10% battery mod just has images and xml files so should be safe (unlike other themes with styled/patched apk's).
Still it's a good idea to wait for an updated SBF.
how would i go about just changing the status bar to black and replaceing the battery icons and the xmls
Why don't you ask Fab if it's safe to install the multicolor battery mod from here with 2.2.1?
My mod is the same as that one, except the images have been swapped.
