    OK - I have been playing around and much to my surprise, I have accomplished more than I thought I would! I have thrown together a "Frankentheme" with icons from various themes and threw in my own customization of the notification bar.
    My question is: where are the icons/images for the power control widget and for the settings menu? I have looked in all the drawable folders in the framework res apk and unless I am missing them, I have not come across them.
    Thanks for the help ... again :)

    **EDIT: Never mind! I found them!! :biggrin:

    I don't mind sharing, but at this point the only thing I have done is switch out PNG's from different themes to make a "conglomerate" theme. I rather not post pics though because I have not asked permission from the other themers (yet) - I am at the "doing it to see if I can" stage right now. I have no intention on distributing at this point, that's why I haven't seeked "approval" at this point.
    I'd be more than happy to show you the notification bar being it's the only original "work" I did. It's pretty basic right now, I am just playing around and have NO digital editing experience at all!!

    Yeah, I was gonna attempt my own theme but I am not having much luck editing the pngs - so I think I'll just stick to my "Frankenthemes" for my own personal use :D

    Tricky stuff takes a min to learn but once you got it, it's actually not that bad.

    That's in the framework.apk. Go to res/xml/eri.xml. its the first Verizon Wireless you'll see. I don't know if there's a character limit though

    Thanks for thatbit of knowledge. Ill keep that in mind. Although what I really need to know is the name of the png in which that piece of text resides. Like status_bar_something.9.png

    Think that is called status_bar_header background and its in framework-res/drawable-hdpi. Its a.9 image so its a little tricky to edit it, but in pretty sure that's what its called.
