    I too would like to customize the whole signal icon. I think it would be cool to show both 1x and 3g bars at the same time like on the regular Verizon phones. I kind of liked seeing both!

    I have customized my notification bar icons, but first of all, your DROID has to be rooted. Also, you have to be fairly savvy, and have a working knowledge of Photoshop or some other icon editing program.

    Here's a sample of a few icons and a custom notification bar. These are the same icons, just different colors, obviously.

    The OS is made for four bars. Now you COULD have a pic with 5 bars but one wouldn't do anything and would/could just copy the 4th bar.

    Root your phone and change the framework-res.apk.

    I used to have a rather extensive writeup on how to do it, but there were way too many people diving head first into it and missing important steps, then PMing me all upset when it didn't work, so I deleted the post.

    Here is what I have done, the bars turn red when in a no service area. I also did a 1xx icon but I have NEVER been in a 1xx area so I can't get a screen of it.

    That skin/theme is the best I think I've seen so far! I love it. Is your signature still accurate about the ROMS and such? Is what weather widget donate? What's the skin on that called? Also what is the Icon pack you used for the icons and menu bar along the bottom? Thanks.

    Weather widget donate with 7degree weather icon pack and h7c-clock skin, Glass theme 1.01 (by adamz I think, with some modification by me), Espresso launcher 2 (with full functional soft keys for phone/browser).

    EDIT: Yes my sig is up to date.
