    You have three options:

    Adb pull /system/app/yourapp.apk c:\

    or

    Use Root Explorer to navigate to /system/app/ copy your file to your SD card then edit the images.

    or

    Use a terminal emulator and use the following command:

    cp /system/app/yourapp.apk /sdcard/



    Do a bit of reading around the theming section, I think there's a full theming guide put up recently you should check out.
