    I don't mess with Metamorph anymore. Had too many problems with it. It's a pretty easy manual change. Just unzip your /system/framework/framework-res.apk file, replace the icons you want to change, zip the directory back up again using "store" compression, drop it back in your /system/framework directory and you're done. I actually already have one I'll upload it here a bit later today(after I find it) as a flashable zip file.

    I've looked, it must be at home. Did you only want the battery icon? I can whip that up no prob. Are you stock, rooted/rom'd? If you're running a ROM just let me know which one. Should work with any but some guys mess with the framework.

    There's no secret, it's pretty easy. If you're only changing icons then you can just unzip the framework-res.apk file as if it were a zip file. Change the icons and re-zip it. If you need to change XML then you need to decompile and that can get hairy.

    Try starting here: [THEME] The Ultimate Android Themeing Guide - Updated 4/26 - xda-developers and if you need to decompile/recompile I can give you the tools you need for that as well.
