    I'm trying to change these icons in the status bar using ninja morph. 3G,GPS,and fill in the "M' in the Gmail envelope. I've changed them on the ROM but for some reason they're not changing when I finish the project.I've changed the battery icon without any problems, so I thought I knew how to change them all. Help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks,. I've replaced the .png images in the framework-res.apk files and rebooted with no luck. Everything else I've changed has worked. Those are the only ones that I can't figure out.

    Are you replacing the ones in the drawables-hdpi or just drawables?

    Those are the correct png's the gmail icon may not work as it uses the one from the apk but all others should work.

    Are you changing your framework using root explorer or modding the APK with 7zip, putting it into a flashable zip, and flashing it in the bootstrapper or switching while active and in the OS.

    The proper way to mod it would be the way I described on a computer and using a flashable zip.

    Here's how I'm doin it.
    D/l'd ROM and unzipped using 7zip on PC.
    Went into drawables-hdpi file right clicked on the icon I wanna change and "edit with Gimp"
    Next I save as .png file and slide it into a Icon folder on my SD card.
    Using Ninja Morph I change the icon I want and finish the project.
    Then reboot.
