    In the framework-res, the default bg should be the one in the drawable-mdpi folder.

    Check in the drawable-ldpi folder. If Im correct it's it two or three places in the framework-res. My recomendation, copy your framework.apk to your sdcard, then put it on your pc, make your changes, replace on sdcard. Then use your root file explorer to copy it back to your system/framework folder and reboot.

    You should reboot anytime you modify any system files.

    What application are you using on your computer to open this as drawable? I'm running windows 7. No additions.
