    Okay everyone I've been talking to wolfbitten83 tonight and I'm going to redo the arq theme and make everyone a flashable .zip. It will be to WolfBitten83's red and WolfBitten83 deserves a lot of credit because I wasn't motivated to do the theme again until speaking with him. And he helped a lot... I'll start tomorrow and hopefully we can have you all a Red themed ARQ v1.4 by tomorrow afternoon... hopefully.

    Well... I have to start over from scratch with the red theme. The .9 images are all messed up. The borders are gone. I'll work on it but it'll take me awhile to redo everything. Here's a little preview though:



    Your computer may not be able to properly pick up that red. If it looks dull or pink it's not the actual color as it appears on the phone.

    In order to edit a .9 image you have to decompile the .apk that contains the image first. Once decompiled you can see the borders... a .9 image has a single pixel wide black border around it that is invisible once compiled. When you edit a .9 without decompiling you mess up that border. That border tells the rom how far its allowed to stretch the image within the border. Thats how say the cyan border thats around text input places can stretch. Rather than having multiple .png's for all different sizes the .9.png has a border that the rom can recognize and allow the image to stretch. This saves valuable storage space but can become an issue when creating a theme. You have to have either APK MultiTool or APK Manager on your computer. You then use it to decompile the .apk. Its a very simple process. Once decompiled you're able to see the border and you can edit the image accordingly (making sure not to touch the border at all). Once you're done you can easily recompile the apk and copy your edits from the recompiled apk to the original apk it came from. This bypasses the Signing process and also allows you to edit .9 images. At the moment the borders are pretty screwed up in the images. I'll retheme it but its going to take me awhile to do so. I'll try to have it done in the next couple of days. It's a pretty long process.

    Update v1.5 is on the way. Red theme, jit enabled, benchmarks now over 1800. To compare... stock is around 1600. A2SD enabled... all apps updated. Graphics rendering a la cyanogenmod7, beats audio enabled, dsp manager, v6 supercharger, flash... basically nothing for the q or slider can touch it. Ill be finishing it up tomorrow or the next day. . . Sound engine is crazy, better battery life, notification toggles, new updated sound libs, graphic libs, performance is amazing.

    Another note... while jit is enabled on arq v1.5 thanks to rgh. I've put instructions in the build.prop located in /system for disabling it. Es file explorer is included so its straight forward for the most part. Jit pushes the performance to the 1800-1900 range via antutu benchmark. (Again previously my highest score was 1702). This may negatively effect battery life (having jit enabled). Batt life iis still better than v1.3 though. Ill go ahead and push an unthemed v1.5 to beta because I am releasing both a cyan and red themed v1.5. The red theme is just taking awhile because some of the .9's are being a pain. But we are getting there. . . Its on the way.

    Soon... I finished the v1.5 red theme yesterday, but I'm having some issues with the notification bar icons. They look horrible and I'm not sure why. I'm gonna have to redo those today. When I finish those I'll push it to beta and it will hit VIPs about 3 days after that. I'd expect it to VIPs by Monday or Tuesday of next week... with Sunday being the earliest you can expect it. I have the cyan themed one done and ready to go, but the red theme is giving me some trouble lol.

    No hurries boss. 1.4 is running pretty nicely. Looking forward to 1.5, but with such a nice rom already, waiting is no biggie.

    Thanks again for all this great work.

Okay... so v1.5 is done, I'm about to push it to beta. It will be red or cyan... your choice. Never ask me to retheme again lol. ENJOY!!!

    I was ready to cry with you!

    You are wrong however. I - and I am sure I am not alone - do realize the amount of work it must involve. And we greatly appreciate all your work. I even worry it is not jeopardizing your real job and /or relationships.
    One thing is for sure : we really appreciate all your good work. Couldn't do any of it without you. Thank you.

    All is well... I've slowed down a bit on the dev. Kinda had to with work and all. v1.5 is a good point to start focusing on getting cm7 ported and working right or an aosp 2.3.7 upgrade. We'll see. But in the meantime... you all will have an option of cyan or red in the final. Your choice. Two zips will be available. I'm using the red at the moment. I'm also going to make a beats audio zip available once I get the kinks worked out in it. Enjoy... its coming soon.
