    Just checked Google play stats... apparently there are people using this theme on ICS. I guess there aren't any themes for cm9 yet

    You have to apply for a devoper account, and you can register to submit apps to the play store. It's 25 dollars to register.

    Thank you, I had no idea
    it was that simple




    It was a pain in the butt to get the theme signed right, because I had been signing with an outdated test key and I had to make my own, that was the biggest hassle of putting it on the store. Now that I got it signed though, making other themes and putting them out shouldn't be too much work. Its pretty much a one-time big hassle.
    What do you use to compile your themes with? My laptop runs on Windows 7, tools and tutorials would be greatly appreciated.

    I compile them with apktool, although the official way is to use the eclipse sdk. Basically I just took the base theme released by cyanogen, decompiled it and changed what I needed too (saved myself some coding time). I've posted an extensive tutorial over on vmroms.com in the tutorials section. You should check it out if you want to theme

    Anthony, I just made my first cm7 theme and I was wondering, how do you fix the white text on the notifications that have a black background? It won't show up... Its just black text on black background (except for the text under the title) and it's annoying.... oh and I made a custom lock screen and it doesn't work... Only when you do the setup. (pattern lock)

    First off, for the notification text, you have to redirect the colors of the systemui apk by adding a line in the com_android_systemui.xml I can't remember which color it is called, but if you've decompiled the system UI apk you can look at the XML files in systemui/layout most likely the status_bar.xml and it should call in the color in the XML. *breathes* now, did that make any sense?

    As for the lock screen, you're doing everything right but the theme Chooser refuses to theme the lock screen, probably something about security being compromised or something.

    Updated both of these. Fixed a battery flicker issue (I hope).
