    Thats because zzz <--- file header fixture is only found in ROM's developed in ChenZeng China.

    For Silverlight and other Indonesian and Indian ROM's, try finding just stat_sys_signal_g.png or even sys_signal_g.png...

    Or else you know, try using a Thumbnail mode to view all the images before hand, wherever you find a "G" or "H" or "2G" or "3G". Just open it with Gimp and press Ctrl+A followed by Del.

    Press Ctrl+S and you're done, move on.. repack and you're done... :)

    If it's Silverlight or some of these ROM's then there is another COPY of those signal files too in the framework-res.apk, systemui.apk <--- in case of MMX stock and mtkframework-res.apk.

    So, better check all three and use the "DEL" key for all the Unwanted Symbol PNG's you see... :)

    All the Best
