    Hi, i'm trying to build a custom theme on galaxy....but i've got a problem

    I just made the framework-res.apk and launcher.apk, pushed it to phone and all is ok...

    now i want to customize also the other .apk like phone.apk, contacts.apk etc.....

    the problem is that, when i update the image inside the phone.apk or contacts.apk - like i just do with other .apk - the galaxy don't accept it and crash.....

    Have you got any idea?

    Suggest are welcome.....

    P.S.: sorry my bad english.....

    If u can send me the files ill make u an update.zip. I had the problem you describe and got it fixed by updating the apps with this way.

    just drakaz :)

    With adb, when you'll try to install you're new apk, exec : adb logcat. This will give you the log of the device, the few last line provide you the answer of your problem

    Yes i made a theme but it has some problems for now and i cant post it. You can find tutorials on how to do it in xda. Also adb method doesnt work for galaxo. I dont know why.

    Im getting this.


    But the apps are signed and i tried them by replacing the apps in galaxo rom applied the update.zip and worked.

    Edit: adb method is working if i run it as root

    Now i have a problem with framework-res.apk

    #failed to copy 'framework-res.apk' to 'system/framework//framework-res.apk': No space left on device

    any ideas on how to place it under /system/framework?
