A few months back in 2014 a team of crazy devs on xda decided to find a way to make their life easier with patching, that was when they found out about the Sony RRO commits that are part of the lollipop aosp and was also a big part of their stock kik kat rom, as you have noticed on lollipop we lost the ability to theme the system and we can now only do the launcher. Their research give them the ability to patch translation and push patches to hot fix various bugs on the roms but there was a small side effect, they now had the ability to theme any app and element on asop with the introduction of rro type 2(they developed). it's sad that Sony didn't backport those commits and i want to let the rom devs know about it, in the links bellow you can learn more about how to make roms compatible, create roms and discover themes. The credit doesn't go to me since i only share about it here, you can find the names of the brilliant devs than made this possible in the links i will share. Most notable names are of : Aldrin Holmes(CallMeAldy) Mike Finnegan(Sykopompos) Brian Gill (Bgill55) IMPORTAND LAYERS ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH CM THEME ENGINE AND CAF FOR MORE READ MAKING THE ROM COMPATIBLE There g+ community and center of operations: http://bit.ly/bitsyko Getting Started https://github.com/deadman96385/RRO-WIKI/wiki/Getting-Started Installing Overlays https://github.com/deadman96385/RRO-WIKI/wiki/Installing-Community-Overlays Making Overlays https://github.com/deadman96385/RRO-WIKI/wiki/Making-Overlays Making a Rom Compatible https://github.com/deadman96385/RRO-WIKI/wiki/Making-a-Rom-compatible Time Line https://github.com/deadman96385/RRO-WIKI/wiki/Time-Line Layer Types https://github.com/deadman96385/RRO-WIKI/wiki/Layer-Types Manifest-tags-and-Priorities https://github.com/deadman96385/RRO-WIKI/wiki/Manifest-tags-and-Priorities enjoy and hope to see it in the aosp roms.
