    The better idea, besides taking the phone.apk (the dialpad you see during a call) and the contacts.apk (the dialpad you see before placing a call) from one ROM and placing it into another is to pull the image.png's that you like from within the particular .apk's and place them into the .apk's of your pre-existing ROM this way you are only replacing images and not XML files

    Chances are if you just switched phone.apk's you would have a constant "force close" issue

    Let me know if you need me to outline this process, it's pretty simple once you know what to do

    To succesfully change the appearance of the dialer you have to modify the phone.apk and the contacts.apk

    The phone.apk contains the dialpad images you see while a call is in process

    The contacts.apk contains the dialpad images you see when you are dialing a number, but before the actual call is placed

    If you are looking on a computer make a copy of the phone.apk and rename it from phone.apk to phone.zip

    Open the zip file and navigate to res/drawable-hdpi and drawable-hdpi-finger folders

    Ok I found the images and I try to move them into my system app Res drawable HDpi folder but every time it copies it outside of the app file. I am using root manager. Should I use a computer instead?

    Yeah, definately use a computer, it makes it easier all the way around, you get a better visual of what you are doing and it is easier to navigate around and move files
