    Well I'm on CM9 so the files might be slightly different, but just open NinjaMorph (if it gives you the error, try it again) and allow it Superuser access.

    Start a new project, and then find the .apk file under /system/app that you want to modify. In mine, it was in /res/drawable-xxxx, depending on what .apk file you chose. You'll likely have to do it separately for MMS and the phone itself.

    Scroll through until you see the icon you want to change and make sure the filename makes sense (like "unknown_picture" would make sense) and then change that to the file you want. Make sure your image is in .png format and on your sd card or somewhere available from a browser on your phone. Once you made the changes, go back to the main screen and "finish" your project. Reboot and test it out.

    Good luck! But backup your phone first as this is messing with some pretty important system files and may not work, or worse - mess up your rom.

    You won't be able to change the font without decompiling. The icon should just be another PNG edit.

    I'm pretty sure the unknown contact PNG is in the dialer apk.
