    Is there an app to customize the call screen?

    Just wondering if there's an app that lets you customize the call screen, either outgoing or incoming, or when you're on a call, etc

    Anyone? Bueller?

    What are you looking to do? If you're just looking to change the color many of the theme packs will do this.

    If you're wanting to do more I haven't come across this but I bet it would be pretty popular. Would be a cool feature
    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    I read this thread title and thought, "Yeah, that's a good question!"

    I would be interested to know as well.

    I think the answer you're gonna find is that there is no specific app to install to do it. There are themes that might do it. The other thing to do is to pull the Phone.apk and edit the picture files yourself. I did that to get rid of the default green droid dude.

    If you're rooted and have adb working, here's the gist of it. If any of this looks uncomfortable though, don't mess around with it.

    Code:
    adb pull /system/app/Phone.apk .
    This will pull Phone.apk to your android-sdk/Tools dir.

    Then unzip it (you may need to manually rename to Phone.apk.zip)

    Then browse through and edit which ever graphic files you want. Zip it back up. Make sure it's named Phone.apk, then push it back onto your phone.

    Code:
    adb shell
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    exit
    Code:
    adb push ./Phone.apk /app/Phone.apk
    I'd save a backup of the original Phone.apk in case something gets messed up.

    You've already gone beyond my capabilities here. Is it only possible to do on a rooted phone, or am I able to edit the file regardless? I wouldn't mind replacing the droid guy with a standard pic of my choosing.

    You have to be rooted to access these files. Even if you could get a read on them and pull them down, you'd need root access to push them back on the phone.
