    Hope this helps....

    I themed mine. I changed the M from red to gingerbread green using GIMP. Then modified the Gmail.apk using APK manager 4.9.

    First I just added the Gmail.apk to the modding folder.

    Option 1 for Extract


    replace png with modded png


    Option 2 for Optimize images


    Option 3 for Zip apk, select 1 and enter


    Then rename apk to Gmail.apk


    Once complete, adb push after you have adb pulled the original.

    Reboot


    This is what worked for me and I have not experienced any issues as far as FC's or anything else. All is well. By the way, the color code for gingerbread green is #82B600.

    Originally I thought that in order to do this you had to decompile, make the proper modifications and then recompile, but I was having issues when trying to do that. I kept getting the same error every time. I read through some forums and came across the process I have just explained. Hope this works for you. I would still like to get the decompile/recompile to work but I guess this will do for now.
