Theming is an art. As such, making a beautiful theme is an extremely time consuming and challenging task. Preparing resources requires countless hours spent in a graphics editor app. Putting everything together into an application isn’t easy, but within XDA you’ll find a long list of guides and tutorials that help you understand the Android ecosystem better.
If you have some ideas regarding theming and don’t know where to start, you should read a guide written by XDA Senior Member SArnab©®. This guide explains how to create a theme in Eclipse for Xperia devices in step-by-step detail. The guide should work with Xperia phones running Android 4.3.
Every step is explained with screens. . . READ ON »

In addition to rooting, modifying, and otherwise hacking our mobile devices, many take to modifying the visuals as well. This can range from installing various themes to playing around with various launchers and more.
There is an almost endless supply of available themes in our Android Themes forum, and then there’s the whole awesomeness of Themer. But not every theme that you could possibly want has been neatly packaged for ease of installation. And if you’ve ever manually installed an icon pack, you know how much of a pain this can be.

We’ve all added superfluous swag items to our home screens from time to time just because they look cool. Be it a clock widget when you have a perfectly functional clock indicator in your status bar or a battery widget, these bits of flair are the digital equivalents of large and unnecessary car spoilers. Looking at the large clock widget on my main home screen, I can admit that I’m certainly guilty of this, as I’m sure you have been at some point as well. So why not embrace it?
XDA Senior Member OlliG recently released a beta version of his upcoming Battery Wallpaper live wallpaper app. As its title states, Battery Wallpaper displays your current battery level front and center as your live wall. . . READ ON »

Theming can involve a number of long and tedious activities. Applying the same theme to dozens, even hundreds of icons. even more tedious is taking those icons and putting them back into the apk files they came from.
For users of the HTC Rezound, there’s one less step from concept to completion. XDA Senior Member MrSmith317 has created a .bat script that automatically switches out the icons in the com.htc.resources.apk, framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk for your themed ones. As with any new software, there are a few peculiarities that people who want to try it and some potential improvements that could be added in future releases. As MrSmith317 explains:

Are you a WidgetLocker fan? If so, you may have noticed several themes for the popular lock screen replacement floating around XDA. However with so many themes to choose from, finding and getting a quick look at all of the available options has become quite difficult.
Luckily XDA forum member zHk3R has stepped in to create a screenshot-laden theme index! With over 100 indexed themes to choose from we recommend all WidgetLocker users head over to the original thread ASAP!. . . READ ON »

It goes without saying that Samsung’s Galaxy S II is a very handsome device. However, sometimes the aesthetics of available custom ROMs aren’t to everyone’s taste. To remedy this, XDA member doctorcete has released regularly updated ports of the Lucid Hyperdroid theme for the newest versions of VillainROM and Cognition for the Galaxy S II, a theme which has already become a popular alternative look amongst owners of other devices.
Using these all-in-one flashable zips means you don’t have to worry about applying any smaller aspects of the theme yourself, and gives you confidence that everything that could be themed has been – the most staple, go-to apps have been them. . . READ ON »

I don´t know about you, but I don´t quite like the new market even if the change was necessary. As soon as the new Android market arrived to our devices, an inverted black theme appeared on our forums. This was the work done by XDA member ecsnead69, which is beautiful and offers full UI views, just as the white original one. The member mentions that his inverted theme is NOT the pirate app and be sure you don´t have a vending app in \data\app. If you do, the theme will not work.
Let the member know about your experience with the theme by leaving your feedback.

Ever yearned for the day that you could install a battery meter with the same feeling of speed as a Formula 1 race car? OK; maybe that’s just me. How about a more precise meter that displayed the remaining battery in 1% increments? Whichever the case, XDA-Developers community member and XDA member CondemnedSoul has you covered. He has created a new battery gauge mod that can be installed through the T-Mobile / CyanogenMod Theme Chooser theming engine.

One special feature of the Droid X’s software keyboard is the multi touch function. This really helps a lot when it comes to fast typing. However, you might be bored with the standard white ”old-fashioned” keyboard. Personally, I like white very much – as most of you probably know – but you might just prefer a black keyboard. XDA member yourfriendwayned created a skin for the keyboard of your Droid X to fit other dark themes. One nice addition is the red Droid eye functioning as the voice level meter.
