    How to change wifi and signal strength bar colors in staus bar?

    Hi everyone. Does anyone know if it's possible to change the wifi and signal bars colour in the status bar? I don't want to change the icons, only the colour. Running AOKP B28 and this has the option to change the battery and clock colours but not wifi and signal, so it's hard to get that clean custom look. I have looked around this and other forums and all that seems to be available is a change of battery and clock colour. While I'm pretty new to all this I'll give anything a go with some help! Thanks for any ideas anyone may have....

    My recommendation would be to mod the icons with GIMP or paint.net. You can keep the icon the same and in paint.net (not familiar with GIMP) you can recolor it or adjust the hue to try and get it to match. Then you can package it up in a .zip and flash it.

    When I first started to theme (WAYYYY back in the OG Droid days lol), what I would do is find a theme .zip for the ROM I was running, delete all the .apk's I DID NOT want themed (with 7zip), then play with icons in the apk's I wanted to change (in your case it'd be systemui.apk - I think). After I got the icons to my liking, drop them back in the .apk and flash away ...

    Hope this helps you ...

    Or also try Ninjamorph. You can long press a png and edit the color. Just ensure you make a backup prior to editing any system files.

    Thanks guys. Do you happen to know the location of the icons I need to edit? Also is the method the same as editing the softkeys as outlined by cjm in this post file:///C:/Users/Nok%20&%20Chris/GNe...20systemui.htm?

    Thanks again, I appreciate your help with this.
