    ARGH! Can someone answer this question?

    I got a bur up my butt to throw a logo behind the numbers on the dial keypad. when I extract the pngs still in their folder, all the white numbers show (preview) the same, with a soft font and slight grey outer glow. But open them in PS and some of them have a white background (opposed to a transparent background) and a thick black stroke.

    Anyone run into this and how do you get around it?

    I got the dial button at least.

    Ok one more question. Those who have done this might get a giggle.
    I replaced the contacts.apk, renaming the original one as a back up. However when I went in and renamed the phone.apk, all hell broke loose. Continual FC loop. I wasn't about to battery pull and restore, so I was able to sneak in some button presses between the FC error and get the apk named back to normal.

    How do I use Terminal Emulator to push the Phone.apk from the sdcard correctly?

    That is what transparency looks like when the image is not in standard RGB color mode (Image>Mode>RGB in Photoshop). There is nothing you can do to get rid of it short of recreating the image.

    Actually, now that I think about it, if you can find it, you can download Xeud's xStock theme. He fixed all of the images for editing.

    Thanks. I noticed that some are in greyscale and have true transparent BG and the others are in indexed color, and they have the white BG (though only about 90% of it). Weird.

    Anything that is "running" should not be pushed by terminal. This needs to be done by ADB. Think of it like doing the framework-res.apk. It behaves the same way.
    If you like what I do, thanks

    LOL
    I knew that, but when I saw "Phone" in Phone.apk, I was thinking that it wouldn't be running unless I was making a call.... you know, using the "phone"

    Just because you aren't talking on the phone doesn't mean it isn't running in the background.

    You know sometimes you truly can't see the forest through the trees!

    Just redo all of them! Perfect.
    And that's just what I did. Thanks.

    Yeah, I'm a GSXR fan, even have the tattoo to prove it
