    Anyone modded the Dialer who's willing to share their secret?

    Trying to get dialer modding to work...... insights /secrets welcome!!!!

    What I've tried: - Thanks Jim777
    Used root explorer to copy Contacts.apk from /system/app to sdcard then dragged apk to desktop (pc).
    Used 7zip to open apk (open archive) keeping window open while dragging drawable-hdpi-finger folder to desktop to swap pngs.
    Dragged drawable-hdpi-finger back to open 7zip window, answering yes, then closed wondow
    Draged Contacts.apk using root explorer to set permissions to move file from sdcard to /system/app
    Changed permissions from RW to R with Root Explorer

    Can't get this to work. Everyone who does it says it's easy. Sometimes I can replace a defective / modded Contacts.apk with bak. Just now, had to reinstall Nandroid backup when Dialer went missing.

    Hey!! Paying dues here.
    About time some Guru steps in to throw me a helping line of code or two!! Thanks.

    Do you do this with root explorer? Thanks.

    A clearer explanation: Modding Dialer via Contacts.apk

    - /system/app
    - with root explorer change permissions to mount r/w
    - copy / paste / rename Contacts.apk as Contacts.bak (you can push / save Contacts.bak to sdcard as well)
    - copy Contacts.apk - push from /system/app to sdcard
    - Mount USB to PC
    - drag Contacts.apk to desktop (pc)
    - Using 7-zip open Contacts.apk (open archive) - keep window open
    - keeping window open - drag "drawable-hdpi-finger" folder to desktop
    - edited pngs from folder / save to folder
    - drag folder back to 7-zip window
    - answer yes
    - close 7-zip window
    - drag Contacts.apk back to sdcard and pusth to /system/app with root explorer
    - change back to r/o
    - reboot

    Still can't get this to work. Could be these aren't' the right files to edit the screen above the pad dialer?
