iamlost87 can you do this for sapphire too?
I would appreciate that. Or teach me how to edit the xml haha
If I get some time with this I'll take a look at it. Using apktool is great (this is the way to do it), but sometimes installing stuff back into framework and the like breaks signatures. What specifically are the icons you want to use?
There is an apktool forum on xda. - [UTIL][14.06.10] Apktool v1.3.1 - a tool for reengineering apk files - xda-developers
I also find this tool useful: apk-manager Apk Manager 4.8 - Makes Modifying Ur Apk A Breeze (Windows/Linux) - xda-developers
The tools not that hard to use, but do some reading on it. Once you recompile the apk however, that is were I get off the bus. I then just go into the compiled apk, and simply then just take the individually modified xml files out and add them back into the original apk file using winrar/winzip (similar to when do framework-mods where dropping images into the hdpi-drawable file). I then push back the modified original apk either as an update.zip file, or use adb and reboot.

xml can be edited two ways:
1) Directly edit the binary file with a hex editor such as frhed or hxd -- can do minor edits this way -- quick, fast
2)Decompile the binary back to source, edit the source, and then compile back to binary. Can do much more complex edits, but process more involved. This would be with apk-manager or simply editing AOSP from source and compiling.
