    this is a very basic guide to change colors and maybe icons if you've suitable icons


    1. 7zip
    2. Any Imaging Software that can handle PNG files(I use PHOTOSHOP)

    STEPS :

    1. Right Click on your framework-res.apk
    2. Click 7-zip->Open Archive
    3. go to res folder
    4. Extract drawable-mdpi anywhere on your pc
    5. edit the files you want with your imaging software and save them
    6. now drag the modified files to the drawable-mdpi folder in the zip file
    7. Close the file

    follow this TUTORIAL to push the file into your system



    if you're upto modifying colors than you may notice that some files have extension .9.png they need special way to edit (actually not so special lol)

    just open them in your imaging program
    you'll notice few black dots and black border

    something like this


    keep those black things as they are, and mess around with the other colors

    -----------------------------END QUOTE----------------------------------

    for now I've just tested this with colors and few icons and it works




    if anyone needs this framework (I changed the green color to orange, changed the lock symbol it was too small and colored some of the network indicators from white to green lol)
