not sure why i am making this thread but nvm..just want to help some people ^_^
as most people know Gareana LoL has opened not very long ago and our client is quite....different.
so here is my way of adding the skin.

1. get a custom skin and make sure the name is right
u can check the names here: http://forum.leaguec...e-names-thread/
(credits to Excise)

2. go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Garena Messenger\Apps\LoL\Game (this might be different for other users)

3. look for the ZIP file named "HeroPak_client.zip" and open it with winzip or winrar.
(remember to make a back up of the original)

4. now, open "DATA" -> "Characters", look for your character's name and click on it.

5. just drag in your custom skin into the folder and close it!

6. done!!!!! restart the game and have fun!

IF an error pops out then a few extra steps is needed.

1. copy the file "DATA" from "HeroPak_client.zip" to your desktop.
(remember to make a back up of the original)

2. open "DATA" -> "Characters", look for your character and drag in your custom skin. this time it will work.

3. create a ZIP file in your desktop and rename it HeroPak_client.

4. drag the edited "DATA" file into the ZIP file you just renamed.

5. remove the old "HeroPak_client.zip" from your file and replace it with the one you made.

6. and!!!!! done!!!!!!!!!

note: sorry my english fails!
note note: ah crap....i turned my annie's bear onto akali and deleted the bear's skin =.=

Why risk to screw up your heropak_client?

Just put them into C:\Games\Garena Messenger\Apps\LoL\Game\DATA\Characters\*Championname*

They still use the old folderstructure so easy skin installing is still possible.

You would need to alter your Air files to have it show in skin selection. It should show up in-game though
