    Quick question for all you themers out there. Which value, in which file, controls the battery text percentage color? I've been all through systemui.apk and just can't find it. I also can't find the icons for power save, and the SD card that go on the status bar. Please help?

    I'm not even close to theming but I did switch some pngs with ninjamorph . They seem to be scattered all over the place . like the Apollo app stat notification was inside the apk itself . it's very frustrating for me so i gave up

    I used apktool to decompile, changed settings in xml files located in res/values folder, as well as png files from res/hdpi

    I use ninja morph for the pngs so I can see how it looks while its being themed. For font colors you have to decompile and edit XML files. The status bar and drop down is in system ui. And I believe the rest of the font colors are in framework res.

    And if you are trying to add a PNG to something that has a color setting instead of a IMG like the notification back ground I found that it's easier to change out an in used PNG and change the XML code to reference that image, Instead of adding a new one. Some times the color isn't in values and is in layout. You might have to look there for the bat percent color. I would help you but I'm in the process of fixing my comp.

    For now i can live with that, its more the blue in the ss that bugs me. I've changed all the references i can find to that blue in system ui and framework, but so far I'm still looking

    I use uot to get the general color codes. In the xml, the first two characters of a color I THINK controls the opacity. The last six digits actually control the HTML color code. Sry to say tho the colors are in several xml files. I'll try to get you a list later tomorrow.

    To change png files just pop open the .apk as a .zip file and switch out the png. No need to decompile. You can do this on the android itself as well
