    Just wondering if anybody has made it nice and easy for a novice to figure out what images go where? Like a apk file with some base images and some screen shots labeling all the images and listing out the names of the .png files?

    I've spent a few hours going through images in the apk and still can't figure out what half the images do.

    Framework-res/res/drawable-hdpi

    I know I haven't found the app drawer tab(the one you see on your home screen)
    I'm still trying to figure out which one is behind the word "ongoing" in the notification pulldown

    There are more maybe ill compile a list of what I need and post it up for id

    Thanks for the intrest in help, working on a dark brushed aluminum theme, edited some and installed but alredy running into problems. Unfortunately not a lot of time to work on it but its comming around slowly.

    System/app/launcher.apk/res/drawable-hdpi/

    The image is called pattern_carbon_fiber_dark.png. the original is small and tiled, you need to play with the size to keep it from being tiled
