    Hello All,
    Can any one direct me or teach me the steps on how to edit the colors of icons? I want to try and theme on my own but cannot figure out how to pull phone files. When plugged into the pc all I can see is the sd card content. If someone could help I would appreciate it much.

    You can use Ninja Morph from the market to copy and extract the files to your sd card.

    Get Root Explorer. Go into your ROM's zip, then look in System > Res and you should see framework-res (which is an apk). That's where the images are. They can then be edited with say GIMP, paint.net, etc. You can also copy the file to other folders.

    Thank you for the prompt response. Does ninja morph work like meta morph?

    When you use this procedure, are you using a copy of the image so you do not mutilate the image or do you just have to be extra careful after extracting the image? Thank you also for the prompt reply.

    Nordy, while both of these methods work, the method I use to theme is pretty much fail proof. I use ADB to pull the framework/apps I want (it copies it to my computer, doesn't erase the copy on the phone), then edit with paint.net. Do you have adb installed?

    I believe I attempted to install adb when I was trying to fix a friends bricked hero, but could never figure out how to use the program. Then again the pc would never recognize the phone so I am sure that had something to do with it.

    What exactly is MFC and VC6, sorry I am one of those people that usually wait for a developer to do the work for me, but I am antsy to learn more.

    The link will tell you exactly how to set up adb properly. Once you have it set up:

    1. Download the latest X drivers (I don't have an X, don't know where it is, best bet is to search around the X forums)
    2. Connect phone to pc, enable USB Debugging
    3. Open up command prompt
    4. Open up root explorer on phone, mount system r/w
    5. Let's say you want to theme the framework. Type "adb pull /system/framework/framework-res.apk locationoncomputeryouwantthefile" (for example let's say documents, then (at least for my computer) it would be "adb pull /system/framework/framework-res.apk C:\Users\Owner\Documents".)
    6. Right click the framework and open as an archive using 7zip (download that too)
    7. Find the image, edit it with Paint.net/gimp/photoshop/whatever
    8. (This step might not be necessary but just to be sure) keep pressing the back button until it asks you if you want to update the archive (click yes) if it doesn't prompt you and you are out of the .apk it was auto updated.
    9. Push it back to your phone "adb push C:\Users\Owner\Documents\framework-res.apk /system/framework"

    Ignore that perrson, if you look at their sig, he's probably a spam bot.

    So after following the procedure, if something is done incorrectly, is an sbf necessary or can it be fixed?

    If you follow my steps, the worst thing you would have to do is wipe data/reinstall the rom.

    np...if anything happens you actually should only have to reinstall the rom, not wipe data (although nothing should go wrong anyway)
