I have been working on a boot logo for the Veer. Ok several of them. I get them all setup and good to go. place them in a zip folder.
add them to Theme Manager, but Theme Manager does not recognize the "components", however, on the Pre3 it will list the components with no problem in Theme Manager and let me apply them.

Any ideas?

I figured it out.

In the "theme.json"where you label what type of device it is. it needs to be typed "veer" not "Veer" ahhh it is the simple things that get us.

I'd like to see your Veer's booty.

I will see what I can do about uploading the several I have made. For now I can give a description.

3 different frog versions for the Pre- and Pre3. Below is one of the versions.

Red Eye Frog looking around a Pre3 or a white Veer only the eyes and hands glow for veer.
On the Pre3 version eyes, hand, and keyboard glow(in picture not actual keyboard)

Toad and Toadette (Mario characters) they glow on Pre3
Have not remade for the Veer yet

Wolves with a moon. The moon glows (veer only for now)

Black stallion type of horse midnight sky with moon and reflection of moon glowing that lights up the shading of the horse that makes it slightly illuminate.

All of course works with
Theme Manager
I do have a few icons made for the frog versions (browser, email)

What is a good site to upload these things to so people can easily download use/see them live on the phone as I update?

I have long used MediFire to host files of all kinds... It's got a free level that works pretty well.

If you just attach the boot logos from your desktop to the post, chances are that they will be more easily "grabbed" by someone browsing the thread on their device.

I have a qualm about MediaFire as they've became more restrictive (unlimited storage -> 50GB or something) and randomly deletes my stuff without telling me.

Anyway, anyone tried replacing the boot logo from bootie? I'd like to try a classic Palm logo all the way. I'd skip Doctor/tar based flasher and directly hex edit the tokens partition.

I have some pretty old/unused files on MF and have never noticed any deletions... The part that gets me occasionally is the data cap per file upload. But heck, it's free and unlike a lot of hosts it stores more than pictures. I've got .zip, .rar, .txt, .doc(x), .xls(x), .apk, .cab, .nbf, .bz2, .exe, .pdf, .wma, etc. on there.

I'd like to replace that hp logo from bootie myself. I've already got a custom Luna boot logo installed on each device. (A different one in each case...)

Well, I tried making new boot graphics for bootie stage, and that didn't work out too well. All I managed to produce was a odd looking colorful moire pattern. Either bootie couldn't read it and that's its "throw in the towel" image, or GIMP isn't compressing the thing right. Oddly, IrfanView takes the new image like a champ.
