Have a question regarding the new Gmail update; hoping somebody can help me out here...
First off, I'm able to download from the market and update from 2.2 to 2.3 without any problems; that's the good news.
What I'd like to do is pull the new apk and replace the stat_notify_email.png file to another image. Essentially in 2.3 the notification icon in the status bar is in black and white and i'd like to replace it with a colored icon.
Here's what I've tried to do: I've used Root Explorer to copy the file (com.google.android.gm-1.apk) to the sd card, then I've pulled it to my computer via usb. I've replaced the png file within the apk with the one I want and sent it back over to my phone and replaced the previous file in the same directory it was in before (/data/app). The only thing I changed was the png file. Once I've replaced the original apk file with the new revised one Gmail won't work. I've tried uninstalling, deleting the old apk, installing the new apk... nothing doing.
Does anyone know any way I can just do a simple edit to change that png file and have it work? Is it failing to manually install because its a system app?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks very much.
