    is it possible to edit the framework of apps? I was looking to try and add a different notification icon in handcent. I tried replacing it through ninja morph, but it made handcent, for lack of a better term, disappear. it wasn't in the app drawer and the shortcut no longer worked. so is it even possible to do something like this?

    yeah i have photoshop. cool. i used to do stuff like this on winmo. i love that you can customize down to the smallest detail, if you don't mind getting your hands dirty. thanks for the info.

    trial and error is always the way it goes with stuff like this. that's what the backups are for!
