    Okay,i have gone through almost every miui theme available and most put their own system notifications in and.... i for the life of me can not find a custom sms icon to add to my theme! every theme has the bubble with the 3 black dots in it. Can someone explain why? or tell me what the name should be in the framework so i can change this to my own Ex.(stat_notify_???) sms i guessing...... IDK

    I saw a theme the other day that actually changed this notification in the status bar, but if I'm not mistaken, in the framework, the .png is called stat_notify_chat

    I changed mine by going to system\app\Mms.apk\res\drawable-hdpi\stat_notify_mms.png. I tried the _sms.png first, but it didnt change it. Hope this helps.

    I went to system\app\Mms.apk . I tried the system\framework-res.apk and that didnt work. I had the same problems changing the contact icons. I had to go the the phone.apk to change them. Those icons are usually in the app that uses them.

    I dont believe you can. When you do this, all you can do is extract the files from an .apk. You need something on your phone that will compile the files back. Ninja Morph does this. I've had mixed results with it, though. Theres a how to video on you-tube on Ninja Morph.
    Let me know how it goes.

    the only reason i thought putting it in the framework drawable file would work is cause mostly all the other statbar icons are in there and work so IDK i need someone who has the knowledge on getting to the files in system/apps where u said on the computer and being able to swap those out Thanks Though!

    Ok I have changed my SMS notification icon and here is what I did.

    In a MIUI theme you need to have a folder named "com.android.mms" (if you dont just create one).
    In that folder you need the folders "res" and "drawable-hdpi"
    In the "drawable-hdpi" folder are the .png files that can alter the mms application, so just copy the .png file of your choice to the "drable-hdpi" folder TWICE and name one stat_notify_mms and the other stat_notify_sms. It is the same icon for both but with different names. That may not be necessary but it works for me the new icon shows up in my status bar for new text messages.

    Just to recap you need to have your .png files in com.android.mms/res/drawable-hdpi

    Then just zip the theme folders such as description, framework, preview, com.android.launcher and of course com.android.mms into one .zip file and add it to your theme folder on sd card then apply through the theme manager.

    That does it for me, but if anyone knows how to change the Gmail notification icon...I know it is named stat_notify_gmail but can't quite figure out where it should go.

    The Gmail icon goes in the Gmail folder in your theme. I have one in murdered out. Download it and open it up to get the folder structure.

    \system\app\Gmail.apk\res\drawable-hdpi\ic_launcher_mail.png . You'll notice, most of this stuff is in a res\drawable-hdpi\ folder.

    try adding it to the theme. first you will have to install the inverted fbook into system apps, i would do it via adb. When you add the fabcebook folder to your theme name it com.facebook.katana-1

    No adb isnt like clockwork. here is the download link android sdk download. Install it and if you need help setting it up, look on youtube on how to setup adb. You might also want to look at videos on how to use adb. Its not hard to use when you have it set up. here is a link to some adb commands adb commands. The one you will need is
    Code:
    adb push ./"whateveryouapkiscalled.apk" /system/app
