Does this sound reasonable?

Nick

WARNING!!!! If anyone uses my themes as a template.. either delete the .css and .js file files... or learn how to edit/update them... Once 1.2 comes out you will have to update all of the .css and .js file... If you remove them the theme you make will be compatible with all future versions of webos, with no modification needed. Webos QUick install will skip over any missing files so dont worry about removing them from the .xml file.

If you have any question, contact me via my website (in the signature)

Great work gentlemen!!! Once again, another great reason to own a Pre. Today felt like Christmas to me. First I find out about Quick Install 2.5 then I find out about theming and now this packager. Can't wait to get started with my own theme.

That's more along the lines of what I was talking about. A how-to document of some type. I'll look forward to seeing it on your site. It's been years since I've done all this. Even then I was a newbie. Just gotta get reacquainted with it...Thanks...

I'm confused.

I DL's the app. Created a theme in it that I manual installed on my Pre using all the correct names and locations, I even doubled checked them while creating.

When I try to install I get an "ERROR 5" for each and every file.

I DL's the Lost theme, since that's the theme shown in most theme articles, and all the images are in the proper "folder tree".
All my images ended in one base folder with the .xml.

What did I do wrong?

-edit: I opened the .xml and the background file names have been changed along with the fade images since I replaced the most used app backgrounds.

I am sorry, can you be more clear on exactly what is going on? Just tryin to figure out how to help.. I created the LOST theme, and I wrote the .xml file (did not use the builder).. all of my files are in the base directory in the .zip file except for the wallpaper which is in the "wallpaper" folder.. Did you take a look at my .xml file?

One question:
I see how to revert a theme.. But how do you revert (or uninstall, if you may) a boot logo?
Have I missed those instructions, for I have looked.

What I mean is how do I go back to the original boot logo once I am done with the custom ones, please?

(i.e. If it necessary come Pre update time.)

Reading your .xml I think I may understand.
I organized my folder with folders, i.e. photos, phone, etc, with multiple backgrounds all named background.png.
It looks like I should've created a folder with unique names THEN, on the destination line had the path AND the filename.
i.e. background.photo.png but on the destination line end with background.png

Gonna try it now.

-edit: That was it. Double Thanks (:

I'm going to download notepad ++ when I get up. I looked at the file in regular notepad and it was all jacked up. I changed my carrier string and time color in putty with vi and I forgot how I did it but how would I do that through .js and .css And which files would need to be changed.
