Hey everyone! Long time listener, first time caller. I've been working on some theme projects (new and old) for the themechooser.apk. I have bugged everyone on twitter to get what I needed to build via Linux. Now that I feel I am a little closer with the progress, I figured I would join an awesome forum, ask questions, and post goodies with the outcome. I switched everything to an external hard drive so I basically had to start over. I had it (somewhat) working before but this time around I haven't been as lucky. Here is what I am doing. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 x64 bit.

This Happens


Then This


Still Working


After I 'make' I seem to have an issue. No such file or directory makes me scared for some reason.


After about a minute of silence and nail biting, it continues to work.


Then I get this. Is system fs image BEING installed, or is this something I need to install? WTF??


According to @Haxzamatics guide, I am supposed to navigate to the 'out' folder and find the compiled .apk there


With the issues mentioned above, I'm not sure if I'm holding it wrong, because I navigate to the out folder and I don't see an .apk of any kind.


I did however see that something was being placed in this location, while the 'make' was taking place.


So....
Am I screwing everything up with that framework error?
Install system fs image? Huh?
and...
Where is the compiled .apk (out) after the 'make'?

Thank you everyone who responds to this post.

instead of using the command make, try using make -j2 [yourthemename] without those parentheses. It should make the way you are doing it but this will only build your theme apk, and if something is erroring you will be able to better see it. And it may be easier to help you out then

Thanks man, I'll try tomorrow after work.

EDIT: Tried the make -j2 [themename] command and I'm still getting the error.


After 30 seconds or so, it stops :(

It's something I find rewarding. To build something from source is nothing short of amazing.

there are 2 make files one is in your theme Forever/Android.mk inside this file make sure youve changed the name template to your theme name, then the other make file is vendor/tmobile/products/themes/theme-base.mk and in that one you need to add your theme name. Im guessing its one of those two things, le tme know if it works if not ill keep thinking

you are looking in the wrong spot. Themes/Out/target/product/generic/system/apps you will find your apk there if it compiled correctly

Ok SWEET! Both of these posts helped. I wasn't aware of the TWO make files.

I love you! You had to expect something like this from me though right?

How are you guys making edits to styles.xml without getting errors thrown at you when compiling?

Also, my icon.png isn't showing, but preview.png works ok, any ideas?
