    if you want you can modify theme builder to export to lower OS's

    if you go to:
    "C:\Program Files\Plazmic CDK 4.5\resources\theme\dimension320x240"
    you will see a file called, "8300custom.properties"
    open that file in notepad and edit these lines:

    theme.supportedHandheldOs = 4.5
    theme.preferredHandheldOs = 4.5
    theme.importOs = 4.3.1

    with these lines so you can export to other OS's

    theme.supportedHandheldOs = 4.2,4.3,4.5
    theme.preferredHandheldOs = 4.5
    theme.importOs = 4.2.2,4.3.1

    just remember you can't have the builder open when you do this.

    and you can add in any OS you want should still work.
    that will work for you

    C:\Program Files\Plazmic CDK 4.5\resources\theme\dimension320x240"
    you will see a file called, "8300custom.properties


    when looking for the right file to edit just think about if you are trying to make a zen, icon, or today, or custom, type theme. and of course make sure you alter the appropriate file for your phone.
    let me know if you need any help doing this

    Hope that works out for you

    Remember you have to edit all of the individual .properties files for every type of theme you want to be able to export to a lower OS.
    Icon
    Zen
    Today
    And custom
    Sorry if that is kind of confusing. It will make more sense when your actually looking at all the files in the folder.

    if you right click on the icons that you can set for all of your phone's apps you will see the option image information.

    it will show you the sizes for the icons.

    the default size is 48x36

    Ok wait.. Are you trying to edit a theme that you downloaded?

    The theme you are trying to edit, is it a .thm file or a .alx, .cod, or a .jad file?

    Theme builder will only open .thm files.
