Android Themes Basics 3:
Back after a long break. Easy one to get going again: Changing system font.

  • Backing up original fonts from your phone

Android Themes Basics 2:
Second Part of the video series is now finished =o). The topic this time is changing the status bar:

  • Pulling necessary files from phone
  • Extracting files required
  • Editing the status_bar.xml file and classes.dex file to change status bar colours

You can find more information in the video tutorial thread.
