Often when we install a new theme, we love some aspects of it and some we hate. In this blog, we are going to cover how you can make your own theme for RealMe phones by combining different design aspects of multiple themes.
Read on to find out how.
Put themes in a folder
Download the themes you like into a folder. As you can see here, we have 3 themes that we like in our folder.
Extract the theme files
Rename each of the them by adding a suffix “.zip” to each theme file. This will make the file extractable.
You may have to click Save twice to save the file.
Now click on the Zip file and choose Extract.
After extracting you will find a folder created with same name.
Now, delete the zip file.
Do this process for all the theme files you want to mix. The end result would look something like this.
Customize the theme
Go to the theme folder you want to customize. You will notice a lot of files like this in the folder.
Let’s go through the list and understand what these files are.
As the name suggests,
- com.android.contacts will have the Dialer pad.
- com.android.settings will have the settings UI
- com.android.systemui has navigation bar, status bar icon and notification panel
- com.oppo.launcher & icons is the place where the icons of the theme are kept.
themeinfo.xml is a file that needs to be edited for customization. You can edit this file with an XML file editor. Search for that on Play Store.
How to make a Realme Theme
Change the notification panel
Let’s now see an example of how to modify the notification panel of a theme with another one. Say you want to change the notification panel of OxygenOS theme with Blue UI’s notification panel. Here’s how to do it:
The notification panel is part of the com.android.systemui file. Copy the file from Blue UI theme folder and paste in Oxygen OS theme folder.
Click on Replace file.
Change the icon pack
Let’s change the icon pack now. In this example we will use the icons of the iOS 13 theme in Oxygen OS theme.
The icon pack is provided by two files : com.oppo.launcher and icons
Copy the two files (com.oppo.launcher and icons) from iOS 13 theme folder to Oxygen OS theme folder.
Click on Replace file when the prompt comes.
Creating the final theme
Select all the files from the edited theme folder. In our case, we are using the Oxygen OS theme folder.
Click More and choose Compress File.
Choose Compress to current folder and write your custom theme name.
You’ll see a zip file getting created.
Rename the .zip extension to .theme to make your own RealMe Theme.
Apply your custom RealMe theme
Click on the file and apply your theme.
You’ll notice that the your custom theme has icons from the iOS 13 theme and notification panel from Blue UI theme. While the rest of theme is the Oxygen OS theme.
And this is how to mix different themes and make your own RealMe theme.
