    i wanna customize my app drawer button,(make it the android bot, or a Team logo) i've seen some customized ones in screen shots and wanted to do it myself, and can it be done on any custom rom? i also wanna customize the background image in the neural network live wallpaper, i know in one rom (i think jrummy) it gives u the option 2 choose from gallery so does that mean u can only customize it when the option is giving from a certain rom?

    Well you could copy over the apk of your home app to your PC, then extract the folders and swap out the image pngs.. then push it back to your phone as an apk.... kinda what I'm trying to learn right now as well...

    its actualy pretty easy to do, (always do a backup before changing system files.

    just use root explorer to copy the "launcher.apk" from /system/app folder to your SD card.

    then copy the apk file to your computer
    open up the apk file with WinRAR
    get to the file /res/drawable-hdpi
    thats all the images for the drawer
    I use adobe photoshop to change alter tray_handle_normal.png
    then save what you changed and drag the file back into the zip folder
    and back step to moving the launcher.apk back into the /system/app folder

    remember to change root explorer to mount r/o
    VERY important!!!! change the permissions of the file too
    user X X O
    group X O O
    others X O O


    i did this realy quick so if you get lost or something just let me know and i'll try and clear you up.
