    its...coming along, trying to find a way to remove the clock, lol! Other than that, it's just moving pngs and modifying a couple xmls. Hit up the thread link in my sig for Project Elite if you want a preview. Also hit me up if you need a hand, via PM and i'll get you my Google Talk.

    Hey y'all, I'm trying to theme ProjectElite's new Rom v5, which is Gingerbread. But, the updater-srcipt isn't taking. Every time I try to flash, it gives me this error:
    mount () expects 4 args, got 3
    E:Error in [file path]
    (status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    I haven't found a vanilla version of the ROM yet, but that doesn't seem to be the case (that I know of, unless some tells em otherwise). Is there anything in particular I need to change for Gingerbread or this rom in particular?

    Thanks

    The updater-script I have below in the PE 4.2 theme works, or you can grab the one out of my theme over on DF for PE5. You will just need to open it in notepad++ or Textpad to take my title and name out of it. Just make sure you grab the entire META-INF folder.

    Thanks for the response Cush. I thought I originally included it, but yes, I am using RZRecovery.

    Stetsonaw, thanks a ton, that worked!! I don't understand the Meta-Inf folder tho, so I'm not even going to ask why it didn't originally work. But again, thanks!!!

    Awesome! Again, just make sure to change the updatet-script. You did the SystemUI.apk in /system/app as well, right?

    yea I was able to get the script modified (I have no plans on releasing anything to the public tho lol, I'm not that good yet).. and yea I saw that's where most of the status bar icons are as well.. apkmanager gets an error when decompiling, but I get everything fine, able to do the .9ms perfectly and put them back in the archive without having to compile. Thanks for the help dude!
