    Combining themes?

    Is it possible to take say the icons (shortcut and notification) from watermark'd and put them into different rom? I'm running LFY 1.7 and want the icons in a different rom. Any ideas?

    Sure this is possible - you just open the apk within the theme that has the icons you are interested in and extract the icons and place them into the apk that you are currently using

    A computer, Root Explorer, and 7zip will be some tools to get you started

    Yes, adb pull your framework-res.apk, find the icons you want and set them aside. Install new rom and adb pull framework-res.apk. Replace the icons you set aside, adb push framework-res.apk. Edit by opening with 7zip as an archive.

    Metamorph (set up properly) would be an easy way to install the little parts on a new rom. Thats how i do it

    So i extract the framework-res file using root explorer to my sd card. I open this with 7zip. And then i'm stuck. I need to know how to transfer the files (the .png's i think?) to the apk and get it back on the phone. Maybe there's a step by step guide somewhere i'm missing?

    You just open up the current framework-res.apk with 7zip and replace the icons you want with the images you set aside.

    Opening with 7zip helps to not break the signature for the apk you are trying to add images too - for the apk you are taking images from you can rename it from .apk to .zip and then open it and find the images you like, if it is the framework-res.apk the images are in res/drawable-hdpi, copy those to another folder and open the framework-res you are editing with 7zip and drag the png images to the according files

    You can then "push" your edited framework-res.apk back into the system using ADB, Terminal, or the Update.zip method

    Your recovery will help determine which update method you would use and your ROM will determine your Terminal commands, I believe ADB is universal
