Hi gang. I'm hoping a themer or two sees this and can point me in the right direction.
I have a Casio Commando that has GB 2.3.3 and is rooted. I HATE the green battery, 3G status, and signal bars in my status bar. It just looks so bad if I'm not themed up in Green colors. Would prefer all of these icons to be just white. I changed out the battery PNGs in the framework-res.apk so now my battery is just white. But I noticed that the signal bars are white within the framework-res.apk and the 3G icons aren't there at all. I've figured out that, with "Background Data" unchecked, these status icons stay white. As soon as I check "Background data", they turn green again. ( I'm guessing to show that there is syncing going on )
Can anyone tell me where in the system files to begin looking to fix this so these icons are always white? Is there an .xml file somewhere? Should I just load the icons I want into the framework-res.apk and push it back? Will those extra icons cause a bootloop? ( The Commando has NO RECOVERY as the hardware buttons don't work in recovery mode so a "backup and restore" is not possible. I'm doing everything with Root Explorer and SDK ) It MUST be possible to change these parts of the status bar as themers seem to do it all the time. ( You guys are all AWESOME BTW. )
Any help, suggestions, tutorials would be greatly appreciated. I'm not a noob at this stuff but, with no recovery, I'm trying to be as careful as possible. Don't worry. I know that everything I do is at my own risk and would not begin to try and hold anyone else responsible for advice they may give.
Thanks you guys.
