    Hello everyone. I just rooted my phone but I do not have a custom ROM. I was looking to change the status bar from white to black, but was wondering if this is possible without installing a custom ROM. I've read a few threads about people extracting the image files from the .apk's for applications, then building the .apk back and flashing it back to the phone using SPRecovery. How would I go about obtaining an .apk to change things like the status bar and maybe the battery icon?

    If you have the first moto droid, I highly recommend flashing a current custom rom anyway.. when they send out an OTA update, it steals root but a custom rom is already up to date so ya don't get the pop up (bugless beast does still) but your custom recovery blocks the install.... otherwise, yeah metamorph is a good bet for changing icons like that...
