This will cause problems.
    This may be simply a dumb question, but do you also have to keep the hex codes that start with 80? I'm trying to do the progress_horizontal.xml, and both the secondaryProgress and Progress items have the same hex values, except the secondaryP goes #8085d20f and the progress goes #ff85d20f. I ask because this is the only xml I'm changing and it still boot loops, just trying to narrow down where I'm going wrong. Thanks!

    The color codes are 8 digit because the first two characters after the # are for the transparency, for example #FF0000FF would be opaque blue; #800000FF would drop the opacity down to 80%. Need to leave them there, but can change the transparency or color to whatever. Make sure you delete your resources.arsc after making changes in the layout folder. Just good practice.

    Another thing to note is your apk_manager files. If you are getting constant FCs after editing just the layout folder, check the date on your apktool.jar. If it is the one from September, replace it with the June version, which can be found in APK_Manager 4.8.

    Dang, awesome man, thanks! I had no clue that's what they meant, I just kept the first two thinking they just had to be there.

    I found where I was going wrong tho, Dorian helped me out. Turns out I was editing a themed version of the ROM. Dl'd the Vanilla version and compiled correctly. But knowing that little bit helps with the understanding lol, thanks.

    According to a survey conducted by Droid-Life, Liberty is used by 65% or so of rooters. I'm working on theming it right now :D
