    How would i go about changing the 3g icon in my status bar with say for instance a steelers logo? I already have the framework zip for smoked glass from bowers. Im just wondering how i would make it. Already have a png image of the steelers logo and helmets would love it if any one could help at all! Thanks

    you must resize(Pixles) the steelers image and also the original file and the new one have to be very close in size(KB). then put it in to the framework-res.apk in drawable-hdpi. make a back up and use adb to put it into your framework. MAKE SURE TO MAKE A BACK UP.

    In framework-res/res/drawable-hdpi there are several images for the 3g status. Just open one in paint.net or whatever software you like. Create a new layer and put you steeler image in there. Resize by going to layer, zoom. After you are done save the image as the same name. Again you are going to have to do this for multiple images.

    You have to reset the permissions once you push back the framework-res....
    In root explorer move the framework-res back to the /system/framework then before pushing anything long push on it and set the permissions as this

    XXO
    XOO
    XOO

    X being checked
    O not being checked.

    Reset and done.
