    Just image changes, but I think they are a good start. First, my dialer background, I started with a windows 7 background and made it black and white and a little darker

    Next, the mod to the glowing Palm logo on shutdown and boot. I kept the non glowing one stock(white text), but this makes it go between white to black, and have a red halo instead of white, I think it looks pretty awesome.

    Next, I replaced the stock "explosion" icons when you click apps in the launcher and in the apps pages, I replaced them with actual explosions.

    First, the Launcher one

    This is the one for the apps pages

    Now, I didn't like the stock pictures when you plug in and go to USB Drive mode and Media Sync mode, They didn't look anything like the Pre, and just seemed out of place. I went with something a little more traditional.

    Sorry, I can't post links or images yet, so you're going to have to remove the spaces, unless someone else wants to post the images for me. There are some other buttons I changed a little bit, but I've got a ways to go still, so this is just a start... Everything I got was through google image search and freely available.

    Pretty awsome work. My Pre is going through the WebOS Doctor right now since I messed up some stuff in root but it was all in the name of good fun.

    I just took the extracted webos, searched for *.png, started changing the things I wanted to change, then I email them to my phone(so I don't have to constantly go to USB mode and back to "Just Charge"), log in through SSH, and copy the images to their respective locations on the phone... the images I posted in this thread are the actual images, all you gotta do is save them, and figure out where in the applications directory they go.

    I meant listing the locations to possibly help anyone on the forums who is less tecnologically inclined Thanks for your posts though!

    I'm thinking it might be possible to pack a theme up in a tarball, that you'd extract from / and itd put all the files where they need to go for you... I haven't tried it yet, but I'm going to very shortly. Could have it also place the backup images in the folders as well, would make for a very neat install, if it works the way I think it would... Someone correct me if I'm wrong though.

    I just got done updating the charging/battery icon to be sideways instead of straight up and down... I'm used to it coming from all my older Sprint phones, I just like this layout a little better, and its always the little things I notice first.

    Sorry. I grew up with the original Battlestar Galactica and Knight Rider, and really like the reboot version. What I meant is that the pulsating red glow makes it look aliiiiiiive. Artificial intelligent constructs on the screen seem to often have a red glow: Cylons, KITT, HAL...

    What kind of graphics files are involved? Is it a fade in/fade out of two static graphics files, or something animated? Could you make a red "LED" moving back and forth?

    The Pre just uses 2 images for the boot/shutdown logo, the white one, and the glow one. It does the animating on its own. I'm going to do up a green one, a blue one, and a yellow one as well, see which one I like best.

    So how does a non-programmer make these mods. I know a bit about html, ftp, and files. Do I need to signup for their developer program?

    Basically what are the step by step instructions on how to get going on these?
