    ADB+APKTool=theme! You have to recompile the apk and you'll find your images in /res folder.

    The tool you can use to achieve this.

    There are a couple of threads here that will help. First check out CJM's guide to replacing the softkeys in SystemUI.apk. replacing the status bar icons is the same
    [How-To] Softkey Mods [WIP] installs with update.zip in CWM


    then this thread for de-compiling and re-compiling .apk files if you need to edit .xml
    How to decompile/compile using apktools

    Have a quick question. In the de-compiling .apk files can I use the same directions to edit the launcher2.apk instead of the framework-res.apk? I want to change some images, and also can I just replace images in launcher or do I have to replace other files to keep things working correctly? thanks again

    I believe you can, and you won't have to de-compile it if you're only replacing .png files (unless they're .9.png files, that's a whole nuther story)

    just make a backup before you flash you're modded launcher. Make sure you check the ROM you're extracting it from for the correct location

    Idk then I tried replacing .PNG files in launcher with 7zip and it would error and the files would go back to original new files were resized to match current files.

    Its possible to rename the apks extension to zip. Unzip it. Change some images then zip it back up and rename it apk.

    I find that's just as much work as decompiling it though. So why not decompile it and replace the images. Maybe add your own wallpapers while your in there. Make sure the XML texts match what ever your theme color is and check that apk of your to do list. :P

    OK ignore that previous post I figured out what I did wrong and now have replaced image files but how do I get the launcher to work on the phone....do I have to completely replace the launcher.apk because its a system app?
