    So I'd like to do a Superman Theme (Dock and icons) - I have wallpaper. But I am a total noob, I am running Launcher Pro (free version) so I know how I could add said dock and icons, just no idea where I'd get them or how I could create them. Anyone seen an existing Superman Theme or any pointers on how I'd do this?

    Any help and or direction greatly appreciated.

    First, thanks for the reply, I was wondering if anyone was ever gonna reply. Second, I have seen this and a couple other Superman "themes" but really they are just cool wallpapers. I have those. What I am wanting is Superman style icon borders (in the shape of the "s" symbol) and a more all over feel than like I said just wall papers.

    Again Thanks for the reply but I think I am gonna try to make one (my first dabble into anything of this nature in Android.)

    Dude you are a rockstar, and I appreciate your post! I did know I could do that but I am hoping for continuity and all my apps matching all my launchers matching and my dock being themed as well.

    Maybe I can pull it off maybe not. Maybe people will like and want one too, who knows.
    Thanks though

    its going to be for GO Launcher I assume? Good idea so far, the stencil on wood logo looks pretty cool.

    Yes it's for the Go Launcher. I can't for the life of me get the icons to show up in the app folder as custom icons though :/ I might have to release it and have someone fix it if they can.

    What are you having problems with exactly?
    Custom icons that are not standard to the app drawer (dialer, etc. are native - superuser is not) have to be "coded in."
    My guess would be in the drawable.xml file. I c ouldn't find anything that uses file names with extensions, just whether or not "icon 'x' for app 'x' is drawable, and what a corresponding file name is, without an extension though.
    I use Go Launcher Theme studio to make some of the ones that I have done thus far, but working with other launchers when I begin porting I will have to learn the basics of hand coding them, just don't have time at the moment.
