Root I gotta give credit to anyone who themes


Android Enthusiast
I've been modifying a theme from an existing ROM (yes the original developer knows and I don't plan on releasing it. If I finish it, I will give it to him as an alternate theme for people to try if he thinks it's worth it) and I gotta say to anyone who takes the time to create a theme from scratch, you must be nuts. :) Just kidding.

Honestly, you theme guys must have the patience of Job. There are so many files to edit or create to make a new theme. By my count, there's over 700 files that can or need to be edited to make a theme match correctly and I don't know how you know what files go with what processes because the naming scheme is whack. I've made changes to things that I still have no idea how to test how they look.

So to the theme guys, bravo for the time and effort it takes to make one. I never realized what went into it until I started messing around with one. You guys deserve the thanks, donations, etc. you get because it's not easy work. So give yourselves a pat on the back. And to everyone else, the next time you flash a new theme, don't take it for granted. Make sure you come back here and give a thanks to the creator because it takes a lot more time\work to do one than I think many of us realize.


Joe I could not argee more. The average user has not idea how much work themers or the Rom Gods, or kernal cookers put in. Your post was right on the point. Props to you for trying your hand at it too man.
