    What are you trying to "make"? Or "Mod"?

    /data/app is where apps from the market get installed. /system/app is where apps get installed via rom flashing etc. you should be able to find teh app with the theme name

    i think hes confused.... like fuzzy asked what about systemui do u want to do with it or use it for? if u want to mod it thats going to take alot of patience because u have to decompile it to do anything to it but if ur looking to mod such icons such as battery 4g wifi bluetooth etc.. thats in netframework apk file not systemui and also has to be decompiled. trust me fuzzy is an expert at such mods he can tell you it takes alot of patience. i believe he told me it took him a month or so to create a theme for the esteem and he did a superb job on the esteem.

    Really the point of all this was to center my clock. But I found topic on xda that had a flashable zip for it....but yu needed a modded system ui. So really I dont know how to mod the system ui. I guess its the system uiapk but idk. I thought yall would. Lol but yuhh im not a themer or rom maker. But im not an amateur either. I think fuzzy should remember me we had convos in the esteem forums.

    AOKP has the option to center the clock. Among tons of other things.

    You need to edit the xml files or a xml file inside systemui.apk. I dont know which and dont know how. Can anyone recomend an xml editor for win 7 64?

    He needs to decompile the systemui.apk with ApkTool and have Java JDK/JRE 32 bit or 64 bit depending on his system. Next you will need notepad+ to edit the xml after you decompile the apk. Dont forget to download and install 7zip and or winrar. ;)
