    We pretty much can't for now cause we don't have the source code, and much less, who knows if we'll ever get it.

    Yeah. Sorry lol I should've been more clear. But Salas is right, more themes. I've seen two by this guy on here but the file sizes were way too big. Plus, one was an iPhone rom ( :thumbs down: ). So I'm not sure what to do.

    Nubcakes had a ROM (iCe ROM) with some theme patches but I'm not sure if they'll work with the stock ROM. Work on revokster though if you like that ROM. Only other option i know of is using an app like ROM toolbox and do some custom theme work yourself.

    Yeah I'm currently using revokster. But will the Themes on ROM ToolBox work for my merc? Or will they brick it?

    You stand a chance of boot loops but that's worst i ever experienced. Just be sure to have a current cwm backup that you can reflash the system file from. most of the fully compiled themes have components that won't stick on the revokster ROM so i found it easiest to change out individual icons and such. And you can't use the themes for cyanogen mod either.

    What exactly are boot loops and what effects do they have?

    Boot loops are when you have a conflict loading the system processes or apps, in this case the framework-res.apk that is edited by changing the icons and such. Your phone will boot up completely (or mostly in some cases) and then immediately reboot and repeat this process indefinitely. The quickest fix is having a current backup of your working ROM through cwm recovery and through that recovery using the advanced restore option and selecting the restore system option should you encounter a boot loop.

    Here is a screenshot of ROM toolbox, options circled in green work most of the time for the Merc, the red ones do not. Best method is to reboot after each change to see if it'll give you problems or even stick at all

    Oh well yeah I suppose. It be easier if people suggested themes tho, so we could know what to make. By the way Salas, you think you could PM me the website of the apk I had asked you about?

    I had already made an ICS themed one. It's in the forum. I'll be updating it later on tho, changing somethings in the framework and it'll have the newest updates.
