    How to edit the colors of .pngs.

    Hello All,
    Can any one direct me or teach me the steps on how to edit the colors of icons? I want to try and theme on my own but cannot figure out how to pull phone files. When plugged into the pc all I can see is the sd card content. If someone could help I would appreciate it much.

    You can use Ninja Morph from the market to copy and extract the files to your sd card.

    Get Root Explorer. Go into your ROM's zip, then look in System > Res and you should see framework-res (which is an apk). That's where the images are. They can then be edited with say GIMP, paint.net, etc. You can also copy the file to other folders.

    Thank you for the prompt response. Does ninja morph work like meta morph?

    When you use this procedure, are you using a copy of the image so you do not mutilate the image or do you just have to be extra careful after extracting the image? Thank you also for the prompt reply.

    Nordy, while both of these methods work, the method I use to theme is pretty much fail proof. I use ADB to pull the framework/apps I want (it copies it to my computer, doesn't erase the copy on the phone), then edit with paint.net. Do you have adb installed?

    I believe I attempted to install adb when I was trying to fix a friends bricked hero, but could never figure out how to use the program. Then again the pc would never recognize the phone so I am sure that had something to do with it.

    What exactly is MFC and VC6, sorry I am one of those people that usually wait for a developer to do the work for me, but I am antsy to learn more.
