    Thank you it was my fault I was putting it in a prod.keys folder not on the route of the sd it’s working now.

    Another problem I wanted to ask the new installer v1.2 does it only cover the common.szs file for different icons does it not cover the residentmenu.szs file I cannot get it too work it keeps erroring out on the change over with the residentmenu.szs file.

    The installer will fail if you place an szs file already patched with the pc injector, if you want a custom icon you should just patch just that and not use the pc injector on it. Still i don't recommend using custom icons cause they may be less stable and in case of issues i can't really help troubleshooting.

    Ok thanks I thought that might be the case with injecting the custom residentmenu I just wasn’t sure.

    How do I use different Backgrounds on Home/Lockscreen etc.?
    I created a theme but I only got a different Background on the User Menu.

    Did you make an nxtheme or an szs ? For nxthemes you just select the target in the list, for szs you need the szs file of the part of the menu you want to edit, they're all in the systemData folder if you extracted the home menu with nxthemes installer

    I posted a while ago to say I got a crash when I tried launching the app. After troubleshooting, I've realised I only get this crash if there are .nxtheme files in the 'themes' folder. If I remove the files, the app launches normally (but of course I can't install a theme as none are found). As soon as I put .nxtheme files in that folder then the app crashes as soon as the app is booted. This happens regardless of whether I use Mac OSX or Windows. I have also downloaded somebody else's .nxtheme files to make sure I am using working files. This is really odd

    EDIT: deleting the 'themes' folder and making it again on Windows solved the issue (I forgot about this part when trying to do everything on Windows :shy:). The app was able to extract system data and save it in the 'SystemData' folder in themes folder, but could not read any file in it. Apologies for my mistake. Hope someone else can benefit from this.

    The support page has custom text from a theme I added ages ago, what file would I have to delete to remove it?

    Guess the localization data, to be sure just delete the whole qlaunch layeredfs dir
