    Usually the dev of the desired bar would set it up with an installation process.

    well in my experience of changing just the bar, the theme was built by someone who provided instructions on how to apply it.

    I couldn't even begin to figure out where some example would be right now.

    Sorry, no experience with that one. I know from what I have done, the files that apply to the bar are usually in the framework-res folder.... at least when using metamorph ;)

    All themes don't work with all ROMs though so you will need to either find one that works for your particular ROM or modify it so that it will work for your ROM. framework is particularly nasty because it is one of the bigger differences between ROMs. 2.01, ESE53 and Cyanogen are all a little different, which makes themes not universal. The .png files generally are, but the xml and other files that are modified when theming are usually where the problems lie.

    But to answer the question, use metamorph and apply only framework-res portion. You can also do this manually, a lot of people have had issues theming framework specifically. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...s-ese53-noob-guide-adb-pull-push-theming.html
