I've been messing around with a program called Infranview lately. It enables you to make boot ani's from video as well as break gif's down frame by frame. Batch processing makes it a win for me. Everybody should check it out.

I'm not sure about this but I believe those "colors" are actually defined elsewhere. Try looking under Colors in the same directory or something in there. I was looking at them no less than an hour ago haha.

Ugh I hate framework files so much. I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. Quick question that doesn't need a lengthy explanation but where exactly are the values for status bar text and transparency as well as navbar transparency. I've got everything else right but am just doing guess work at this point for those.

The text is called ticker, and its in the res/values/styles.xml

Transparency requires smali changes. I posted a link to a how to one page back.
Thank you sir! You are quite helpful haha. And thank you for posting that link for me but I looked at it and I am trying to go about it a different way. I'm working on my windows box for theming and am not sync'd to aosp

If you scroll down a few posts in that link, there are also directions on how to do it thru smali, which can be done using apktool to decompile in windows.
Wow, my bad man haha. Another sincere thanks for your help as well as your speediness. Going to try this as soon as I'm home.

Alright I got it figured out. Thanks again for your help.

I'm fairly certain I know the answer to this but what is the easiest way to port a theme from rom to rom? We just had Codename update and ICSourcery is dropping in a day or 2. So many roms, so little time...

Alright guys I'm beat. Decompiling/Editing/Compiling has been the most frustrating thing ever. I managed to decompile and theme mms.apk perfectly, compiled perfectly, and now have it running. Looks good. When I follow the same process for contacts I cannot get it to compile for the life of me. Anybody have any pointers?

Even if you did get it to compile without errors (launching dialer will just lead to fc on device). Only way is to theme it from source.

good day.
Yeah I've been doing some more reading and you just confirmed that for me. Thanks Chopper, you are always so helpful. Much appreciated.

I'm throwing one last request for help out there right now as its the only thing keeping me from releasing v3 of my theme. Not sure how I managed to do this but how do I make the usually gray menu backgrounds, that are now transparent, black? I've been trying and failing for over an hour at this point...

Actually, it looks like the .9 was not compiled, so it did not stretch. You can see a little black box in the middle of the menu.
That was the issue. Thanks to both of you!

Wonderful. Any idea why emailgoogle.apk won't compile and gives me a resource error?

W/ResourceType( 3580): Bad XML block: header size 372 or total size 0 is larger than data size 0

These other issues I have been pulling my hair out for a few weeks trying to figure out.

1.Does anyone know which xml in the systemui to edit to enlarge the status update icons and the signal battery icons? I tried fill_parent and @drawable/status_bar_icon_size for sizing. I probably am putting it in the wrong spot.

2.Lockscreen and menu backgrounds... I cant find them.

3.Statsbar expanded... Notification_tracking_bg, where the hell is the size?
I'm investigating those right now. Porting my stuff to AOKP 29 so I'll make some notes while I'm running through this.

I'm going to start porting forward tonight as well. Is there a lot to change from 28 to 29?
Not really as far as I can tell. Png's and .9's can be dragged and dropped over but you will have to go decompile and do all your XML edits again. As far as I can tell so far at least haha.

I actually stopped porting to b29 for the moment as it is terribly buggy from when I used it and most people in their thread are reporting the same. I may just have to wait this one out and see what happens before I invest much more time in it...
