I want to create another theme for mobile devices, in addition to YAFMobile. So, in theme drop down for mobile two themes would display and I could select one of the two available mobile themes.

I can copy the YAFMobile folder to the new theme folder and change theme.css for my new theme. That part I understand.

Question

How do I make my new theme appear in mobile themes drop down?

You need to create a new XML file for your theme. Look at the yafmobile.xml file.

Ok. Thanks.

How will the drop down for mobile themes know that the new theme is a mobile theme? I mean the drop down at Admin > Settings > Board Settings > Mobile Theme.

Restart the application and your new theme should show up in the list.
