    I was wondering if someone could post the links to some thread/s on how to set up custom themes and how to screen shot on and admire. :)

    That and I have been wondering if it is possible to make calls from the phone without the use of wifi. :D lol

    Never know when roaming might come in handy. ;)

    You can use uot kitchen on your pc to make a theme. You just need your framework-res.apk and systemui.apk. You can screenshot by downloading an app from the play store but most of them are paid. A more annoying way to screenshot is to plug your phone into your computer and download sdk manager to view it

    what do mean calling without wifi? you can either use wifi or your actual data, i dont think there is any other way, at least none that i know off o_O

    ypu it can be annoying lmao but i for one prefer it that way,
    heres a link telling you how to do it with sdk tools
    How to take screenshots of your Android based phone from Windows

    and just for kicks if you want to control your phone with your computer with sdk tools
    How to Remote View and Control Your Android Phone - How-To Geek

    when you are making the connection with between computer and android after you do the devices check
    you type in:
    adb shell
    chmod 777 /data/dalvik-cache
    cd /data/dalvik-cache

    this is the way i found out you have to do if you want to write text messages with your keyboard.
    if you dont drag the androidscreencast.jnlp then you wont be able to type with the keyboard. technically you could skip the draggin of that into the command prompt and still run the android from the pc but the one thing you cant do will be type. thats what i found out when i didnt drag it

    obviously to have to enable debug mode within the setting to do both

    if you really want to get hands on with the theme building you can download apk multi-tool from the internet. it decompiles apks and recompiles them. this is takes a bit of work though so you might want to read up, it it the easiest way to decomp and recomp though . i myself am trying to get the program to work right because something im doing somewhere in the the whole process doesnt allow me to flash the modded theme zip so instead i just manually push it to apply it... ijs

    You cannot make calls on radio without a plan. The alternative to calling without a plan IS wifi via Google Voice
