Ok, so I've made changes to the status bar and other items, re-zipped the folder, placed it on the sd card and used the following command to update the file using terminal emulator: adb shell su mount -o remount,rw /dev/mtdblock4 /system dd if=/sdcard/framework-res.apk of=/system/framework/framework-res.apk The last time I did this, it worked. It immediately re-booted the phone and when it re-booted, the new icons had applied. This time the droid got stuck in the boot animation and never booted. I had to restore my latest spr backup. Any ideas on what went wrong or what i need to do differently?
