    This seems like it should be pretty simple but I haven't been able to really get started after a couple days. I want to get the status bar icons and other system .png's from one aosp rom to another. I figure if I could just paste the .png's from the one rom I'm not using(but love the icons for) to the system.ui/framework-res.apk of the rom I'm using, then I could use UOT Kitchen to make a zip I could apply to the rom I'm using. It appears I need apktool, which I have downloaded, but I have no idea what to do with it. And I can barely remember how I was able to use adb to root my phone. I am pretty inept at using adb without step by step instruction. Could somebody help me out with this? Like I said, in my mind it seems like it should be pretty simple to do.

    I did a quick search and found an apktool wiki. Have you looked at that?

    Sorry I can't offer any other help. Never used it myself.

    Is there just a simple way to make a theme out of the rom? I'm running liquid 3.2 but I want the system png's from SHIFTAO5P ic3. I already flashed shift's burnignition theme over liquid and it works fine. Is there a simple way to make a similar theme from SHIFTAO5P ic3?
