    [HOW TO] mod a cm7 theme chooser theme only using root explorer and 7zip

    first you need a cm7 theme apk
    choices are
    1. download from internet
    2. use root explorer to copy existing theme from data/app to root of sd card

    second place the apk on your pc
    1. use 7zip to extract files
    2. go into extracted files this is where you will swap all your pngs but be carefull they are named slightly different. they all start with com_android_ or com_android_systemui_ you get the idea (make sure you rename your images accordingly)
    swap all png you want check all folders in the res folder images are spread out a bit
    3.when done use 7zip to open archive on the original apk then navagate to the res folder right click and delete it.
    4. now go to the extracted files and drag and drop the res folder from there into the 7zip window that you deleted the original res folder from.
    5.do not exit the 7zip window back out of it once backed out of the apk then close it
    6. you are now done modifying the theme apk

    this modded apk will not install by itself as it is not sighned
    but follow next set of instructions for it to install with no issues
    1. take the cm7 nightly zip you are currently running and open archive with 7zip navagate to system/app drag and drop your new apk here
    2. back out of 7zip

    now uninstall theme from phone if you allready have it installed
    place the modded nightly zip on sd card and flash without a any wipes this will install the theme as a system app
    then use theme chooser to apply theme

    i have used this method 21 times now with no issues on 8 different themes
