So I've not have much luck with Metamorph with patching the Framework-Res.
It will attempt to patch it but then the droid would just reboot. So after trying
every which way to get it to work, I've found a working solution and I hope it
works for you. I'm currently on a windows box, so the tools used are such.
However you can also use adb to do this as well, on any platform.
Android SDK [SITE]
Android Commander [SITE]
Phone in USB Debug Mode - Unmounted
Plug your device in, make sure its in USB Debug Mode.
-To Enable USB Debug Mode navigate to [Settings > Applications > Development] and check USB Debug Mode.
Launch Android Commander. It will ask where your TOOLS folder
of your SDK is located. Point it in the right directory and re-launch.
In the right pane, navigate to [System > Framework] and drag your
Framework-Res.apk file over.
-Now mind you this is the CURRENT framework in use. So if you're using
a theme, you will get a themed Framework. Most roms include a default
droid theme as a update.zip. Do this if you wish to start fresh, otherwise continue.
Now you can open the apk file with 7ZIP. You can navigate it as a zip/rar/etc.
and such you can replace files easily. Right with 7ZIP. So drag what PNG's
you want to edit out of the apk, Edit them and drag them back into the .apk. Done!
-Always keep a backup!
Now simply drag the Framework-Res.apk back over to the [System > Framework] folder.
-Your device will reboot automatically upon overwrite completion
Congratulations! You've edited your Framework-Res. By now your device
should be rebooted and hopefully you see the changes you made.
