    Can someone with experience walk me through moding my soft keys. I want to get the ICS themed (Blue) with transparent background. But I want to stick with the stock layout

    But I am on rooted, stock GN....no custom ROM. Is this possible?

    Edit the photos in the systemUI.apk then repack it and zipalign

    Was hoping for something a tad easier. I am not familiar with how to repack and zipalign anything

    How about getting the menu and or search button soft keys always showing on stock rooted? I know load up a deodexed stock ROM but I don't want to do that right now. Thoughts?

    That mod requires deodexed ROM. Stock is odex which means some of the app resides in a .apk and the rest in a .odex file. Deodexed ROM the apps are contained entirely in a .apk and zip aligned for performance. The images are all contained in the .apk thus you can mod that file and put it back on the phone for color changes but the code for adding additional buttons is at least partly in the .odex file component.
