Hello renegade,

you want to change the emulator skin :?: like these:

It just a background image with some layout-data.
Search your local android-folder for a "skin"-directory.

Well...I didn't mean how to change emulator skin...

It's quite simple, I just prepared few own skins for devices developed in company I work.
The problem is howto change the system theme. I mean android desktop, user interface globally, on working device.
I wonder is it possible to do this on all system, cause It's quite simple to apply theme to your application, but how to make it on android.

Some issue(not the best i guess) is to replace android images in system image (system.img).

\framework\framework-res.apk/res\drawable\ directory contains *.png images used by system.

I don't really know will this work with replaced images (if all the system images will be displayed correctly).
The goal is how to replace original images, since there is a problem with YAFFS2 filesystem tools accesibility.
:?

Perhaps someone know howto build system.img ??

Thanks,
Best regards for anddev.org forum readers...
