Root [Avail] [MOD] Purple Theme

Hey everyone, I made a purple theme for my cousin who happens to like purple and I figured that I would share it with you in case any of you like purple.
Here are screenshots. THEY ARE NOT COMPLETELY ACCURATE because this is what the theme looks like on my Optimus V and its framework isn't exactly the same as the Avail. But don't worry, your theme will be even cooler.

NOTE: This is for odexed stock ROM only (anthony, feel free to take this and make a deodexed version)Only the apks are included because no changes to the odex files were needed.

What's included:
Themed launcher2.apk - cooler wallpapers, red dock icons, no orange highlight when you press an app
Themed framework-res.apk - purple app title bars, purple, purple, (basically anything that was orange is now purple)
Themed status bar - SystemUI.apk - Blue signal bars, purple battery, red wifi, awesome gray drop down


Download found here: PurpleMod.zip

Directions to Use (Very important)
1. Download the zip (duhh :p)
2. Remove the files from the zip and place them on your sdcard
3. Download terminal emulator (this is so you can feel like a real hacker)
4. Make sure you have a backup in case this borks stuff.
5. Open terminal emulator and type:
mount -o remount,rw /system /system
cp /sdcard/Launcher2.apk /system/app
cp /sdcard/framework-res.apk /system/framework
cp /sdcard/SystemUI.apk /system/app
mount -o remount,ro /system /system   (it will say failed)
6. After typing this there will be tons of force closes because you just replaced the three most used apks in the phone LOL (don't panic:p)
7. Exit terminal by pressing home
8. Reboot the phone to enjoy the them :)
