    So you use open home? I'm sure there must be tutorials around the web to create open home skins (if it supports them)

    Otherwise its a case of using an application on PC like apk edit, extract the apk, edit the images and package it back up again.

    Here is probably a good place to ask:

    Use 'Desktop Visualizer'. You have to make the thumbnail pic yourself but the rest is pretty easy.
