    Ohhhhkayyyy...

    so here's a quick tutorial..

    open the respective .apk file with a archive manager [[ 7ZIP for me ]]

    go to

    search for file
    Open the file in a image editor that supports PNG files [photoshop,gimp,etc]

    now comes the magic

    select all
    press "DELETE"
    save and close

    [Easter Eggs : YES!!You Can.. If you're not a transparenter,
    you can
    change the Color/image too make sure the size is same]


    Replace :


    1. Send the apk to your sdcard
    2. copy it anywhere in the /system [cuz only there you would be able to change permissions]
    3. change the permissions as below
    4. now copy/replace it to the destination folder


    (yawnss...)

    you're done mate.



    I'm Posting it with examples [just to make this tut fun]


    everyone has seen the POWERCONTROL WIDGET right?

    its in the background image is in Settings.apk

    now I extracted the bg image

    edited this way

    copied it back to the apk file

    sent it to my phone

    and replaced it


    -THE END-
