    Anyone know which apk I need to mod to skin the quick search box?

    It bugs me to see it not match the rest of SG.

    TIA!

    I don't know if we're talking about the same thing. The widget is skinned to match. I found that one in the helix apk.

    The one I'm trying to find is the search box that comes up when you hit the search key on the bottom of the screen.

    search_plate_global.9.png inside framework-res.apk. The background when you click on the textfield is keyboard_textfield_selected.9.png

    Those are 9-patch images so watch out when you modify them. Make sure you have a 1px transparent border after you edit them, or use the 9patch editor.

    just pull out your framework-res.apk file and edit/replace the png inside /res/drawable-hdpi/

    let me know if you want more detailed info.

    I found a few posts on theme'ing the framework, but i'm not confident enough to mess around with that just yet. To me, the risks outweigh the reward.

    Gonna do a bit more research.

    Thanks!
