    IIRC there was a gingerbread for froyo theme here somewere on the forum.

    Or throw your own together.

    Pull framework-res.apk. Use 7zip to extract the contents of the .apk. Make the edits to the png's in photoshop/gimp. Drop them back in the .apk through 7zip. Push framework-res.apk to /system/framework while in recovery.

    I know this info is out there, but since you seem to know and I'm being lazy... do I boot to recovery, and then push through adb? I've done theme stuff through MM, but never the "real" (above) way...

    Ya, if you've not done much thats gonna be really hard. thats why i havent tried things like that yet. Wouldnt it just be ok to flash a custom ROM? Better than froyo, and then putting a theme over its not hard at all

    Yup, boot into recovery, from cmd line you would type:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. adb shell mount /system
    3.  
    4. adb push C:\[I]Path where your file is saved[/I]\framework-res.apk /system/framework
    5.  
    adb mount mounts the system partition on the phone so files can be pulled/pushed.

    First half of the second command tells adb where the file to be pushed is located on your computer. The second half of the command, separated by a space, tells adb where the file needs to be placed on the phone.

    Full example, on my computer I place apk's to be pushed in the tools folder of the android sdk:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. adb push C:\AndroidSDK\tools\Framework-Res.apk /system/framework
    3.

    Umm actually you might have a problem theming stock froyo because most of the time in order to theme you must be using a DEODEXED rom.

    Yes, as the 2.2.1 stock update is odexed you cannot use ANY THEMES that have previously been made.


    You could either hope a themer makes a METAMORPH theme to apply to stock. Or wait for custom/deodexed roms

    SO would the roms for froyo be any better than they were for 2.1? i mean the roms made for 2.1 pretty much made the phone run amazing, faster than froyo i'd think. Froyo came with apps2sd tho right? so with the new 2.2 roms we wouldnt have to create a partition

    2.2.1 Gave us a better radio, better JIT compiler, better Native task manager, and native a2sd.

    With custom roms we will be pursuing similar speed enhancements as with 2.1 we will just have a much faster and feature filled base to work with.
