    Yes, I'm sure I'm missing something very easy, but it's getting frustrated so I'm going to ask. I'm trying to pull the framework-res.apk, systemui.apk, and com.htc.resources.apk files from my wife's rooted Inc2 to cook her a theme. I can find them on her phone using astro, but when I hook to pc, it obviously only shows me the SD card. I tried using adb file explorer, but still couldn't get to the folders stored on phone's memory.

    I even tried selecting the files while in astro and gmailing them to myself, but they weren't attached when I opened the email (even though it showed them attached before sending).

    I know where the d@mn files are, just not how to get them! It's frustrating lol

    Someone please tell me how to get these dang files! Thanks!

    You can use a terminal emulator; and if you have busybox installed, you'll have access to the cp command. Or you can use adb from your desktop and use the command "adb pull path/to/apk"

    Or you can open the rom with 7zip on your pc (download the rom you have if you dont already have it) and then you can open up the SystemUI.apk and frameworkres.apk with 7zip and copy the wanted .png files from the res folder and edit them with photoshop or gimp. or download replacement icons. then re-install them using ninjamorph.
