    One of the roms I was using "Kings alliance, the breed" had a bunch of cool skins... I would like to take the skins from that rom, and use them on the rom I'm currently using, but cant find them anywhere... The only thing I have found is in /system/app/ and there I found SkinPicker.apk, and SkinPicker.odex... Do I just move those over or are the skins somewhere else?

    Thanks :)

    if they are htc skins, you can download them right off htc...there should be an option in there that says download more skins...its usually right at the top...

    ya, tried that with all the roms I've tried, and none of these show up, so I'm guessing they are not htc skins...

    well most of the skins and pictures n what not are usually in this folder...

    system/customize/resources...

    i've never tried to transfer skins but i guess if i was gonna try, i would use root explorer to go to that folder, copy the skin and paste it on the sd card...then hook up my usb and transfer the skin to my computer....do everything you gotta do to flash a new rom...then put the skin back on the sd card...move the skin to the folder above on the new rom and go into personalize in your menu and see if it works.....but if you only see those skins on that rom and havent on any others then i would assume they were made for that rom....so i wouldnt be suprised if they didnt work or you run into problems...

    This was the 1st place I looked... All I see in that folder are the wallpapers and scenes... no skins tho :thinking:

    does the skin have a name?? you could try doing a search with root explorer and see if it finds it...

    ok... found it... Its a .apk file correct? Anyway... I had the rom .zip on my pc, so I just unzipped it, and searched that way, found it in /data, transferred over to my phone, installed with es file manager, but I dont see it when I go into the skins menu....

    i guess i would just try putting the apk file on the root of your sd card and use like astro or root explorer to install it....sometimes you have to make sure you HTC sense and Skin are on the defaults

    if that doesnt work, then i would assume its not gonna...most mods are made specifically for that rom unless they state otherwise being universal but even then, it would probly only be universal with king roms...
