    I am having the hardest time figuring this out. I have been trying with Kuro's theme to get rid of the cursive Kuro in the lock screen and when i rezip the framework it shows up under themes but no preview and restores back to default theme. Any ideas!! sorry for the noob question.

    Not great on themes, but you MAY need to sign the. Zip file as you do. Apk's. There are a few signing tools floating about on the internet for download. Might help, might not but its an avenue to explore if you are stuck

    I just open them with betterzip ( mac ) or winrar ( windows ). edit what i need to in the zip and save and close. goo for adding extra icons and changing the theme element colors.

    if you using mac or linux, try this command

    1. cd /path/to/root/of/them/folder
    2. zip -r /path/to/new/zip/file.zip *

    A new "file.zip" will be produce and it there you should see folders like "framework, preview, icon..." etc. All those folders MUST be top of the zip file and NOT under any folder.

    Try adding in -0 to remove all the extra .files that OS X tends to add to folders and zip files.

    So:
    1. cd /path/to/root/of/theme/folder
    2. zip -r -0 yourtheme.zip *

    Also, I've had better luck using adb push to move the theme to my Inc, don't know if that has anything to do with it, but try it out
     
  10. I was having the same problem DONT UNZIP! Use wateva program u can (idk dont have mac) and replace wateva u want just dont extract it AT ALL i use 7zip i think its called i just open an archive and do my business it works flawlessly
