    What is the easiest way to change the helix launcher .png after installing UD? I have changed the update.zip files before and got it to work but am having no success other than that method. I want to use the clockwork recovery method for updating roms and after installing Helix with the UD update, I want to change the .png files. Is there an easy way to do this?

    Is it the drawer png you want to change? The black droid? If so, you need to pull the Helix.apk using adb, chage it to a zip zile, replace these 3 files: all_apps_button_focused.png, all_apps_button_normal.png, and all_apps_pressed.png with whatever png files you want in there.

    Change the file name back to Helix.apk, adb push it to your /system/app folder and sync, reboot.

    Man, to be honest, in my opinion, the easiest way to edit .png images and put them back on the phone, is to create a MetaMorph theme with the images you need edited. MUCH more simple IMO

    Research it a little and you'll see how easy it is after you realize what to do.
