    Can anyone explain how this is done? I'd like to put something custom there but I can't find anything online how to do it.

    Thanks!

    I used ADB to push an updated image into the Helixlauncher.apk file.

    There are many posts in the Droid Hacks section about using ADB.

    Can you point to a thread that details how to push a file INTO an existing APK?

    All I found is the helix launcher theme request thread. In it Isearch for "adb push into" and did not find anything about how to push a file into an APK.

    BTW, here is what I have done by making metamorph themes, which is what I have to do since I do not know how to do what metamorph does (insert files into APK's in a running ROM)..

    OP, to edit the launcher button you need to edit the tray_handle_normal.png (if you look you'll also see tray_handle_pressed.png and tray_handle_selected.png) in Launcher.apk.
