    I don't get big into themes. I usually like to keep a clean look, but I have attached a drocap image with an arrow pointing at what I would like to mod. If someone could tell me the name of the file I need to mod, then I can probably complete the rest. Basically what I am trying to do is remove the ^ symbol and add a word there. Any help would be great! Thank you in advance!!!

    use root explorer, or whatever file explorer, and go to /system/app/launcher.apk

    you can rename it to a .zip on your computer from there, the files your looking for are located in a "res" folder, and inside that is a drawable-hpdi folder. files should be there assuming your using the stock launcher.

    I hear ya. I am just starting with droid phones as of 2 weeks ago. I have done my share of windows mobile, and iphones. It has been a fun 2 weeks. The only thing I had to do, that I wasn't planning on, was run fix permissions from Bugless. Easy enough for sure. Thanks again!! Also a big thanks to Bugless! Thanks for the awesome Rom!

    I leave the programming to the programming whiz's here on DF. I am using Tag Home and have the drawer button invisible through there by turning it 100% transparent. Like you said, I know where it is.

    Now, if the O.P. would figure out a cool replacement for the drawer button, like a Pittsburgh Steelers logo, then I'd be interested!

    Wouldn't be hard to do... there's only 3 files to replace on the home screen, and 3 more in the app drawer

    I did something similar yesterday with Ninjamorph and LauncherPro, I would imagine it would work for Tag Home. As the previous poster said, 6 files total and they're in the res/drawable_hdpi folder.
