    Thumbs up FYI: 32x32 Freeware icons can be used for Status bar notifications

    I have tested this out tonight by editing my framework_res files along with gmail_res, and email_res.

    Replace those bland looking stock icons with any you choose. As long as they are .png icons.


    But remember kiddies, do so at your own risk!

    I give credit to blake2050 for giving me the ideal to check.


    The icons in the status bar are gmail, usb connected, and usb de-bugging.

    Well, I could... but this is more of an FYI to those that like to mod. My point is, that you can download any 32x32 .png icons you choose, to change out the stock ones in any of the .apk res files. And have those display on the status bar. As long as you re-name them the exact same as the ones you are replacing.

    I'll post a pic or two soon.


    Here are a few more just for example.

    I just started a search for "icons .png"

    I found some of the ones I'm using now, here:

    GREEN Icons | Download PNG Icons | IconsPedia

    However, I'm still on the hunt for the best I can find.

    this may be a dumb question, and maybe i missed it, but do you need to be rooted for this to work?

    Yes, that is correct. Root is needed.

    I appreciate the icons posted and am just starting to dabble into this. My question is do I need to resign the apk file? I tried replacing an icon I liked for the GMail notification. It's the same dimensions (25x25) but a different size. It is a PNG file. When I replace the icon with mine and try to install the apk file, I get an "Gmail application could not be installed." I'm using Linda File Manager to install it. Thanks for any advice.
