    Working on my first Theme - Blue Steel

    Question to themer....I have a deodexed froyo X and I want to get into theming but I'm having a hell of a time figuring out why I can't edit the XML files. I was trying to look at status_bar_background_animation.xml and I just get garbage, no matter what editor I'm looking at it in (Notepad, Word, VS2010, Eclipse,etc.)

    Was able to edit colors and such by finding the proper graphics in framework-res. Changing the text colors was a pain but got that working too! Now, on the XML's. Found an article explaining how to Hex edit the files, no prob. However, the Hex Value 08 00 00 1C doesn't even seem to exist so my app text title and descriptions are still black...can you point me in the right direction?

    Edit: Still have lots of work to do obviously, but making steps in the right direction. Hope to have a full blue/steel looking theme at the end of this project.

    Progress So Far:

    Hmm, tried it with Status_Bar.xml and it keeps saying it's empty...hrm. Thanks for the link.

    EDIT: I'll try and use the jar you pointed me to with another file, and let you know.

    EDIT2: No dice with the AXMLPrinter2.

    EDIT3: Finally got this figured out.

    Decoding and re encoding the xmls is my work around for this. This thread can actually probably be closed deleted. I'm working in a massive guide for theming too

    You should think of changing the font to white or a light light blue almost white.
