    Hi I have never really done any theming, so I was hoping to get some general guidance on the thing that bothers me the most about Gingerbread: those 4 fixed icons on the bottom of the screen.

    Ideally, I wish I could remove them altogether and regain real estate on my already small screen, but I have a hunch that is next to impossible, if not so. Thus, I'm willing to settle for the next best thing: customizing those icons; namely, their functionality and appearance.

    I know that 'SystemUI.apk' and 'framework-res.apk' are the files primarily related to the general theme, but are those also the files I need to customize these fixed icons? If not, which file(s) then? And once I've extracted or 'decompiled' the necessary files, where specifically would I look to change what I'm looking for?

    Thanks.

    the icons you are refering to are the icons on the dock right? with the phone and contacts and what not? if so all you need to do is try another launcher(or you may call it a homescreen).

    here are a few launchers that i am partial to for ginger bread

    Holo Launcher
    ADW launcher
    Go Launcher
    Launcher Pro

    try one of those ones out. you can change and customize the icons using features of the launchers.

    Did you use one of those launchers for MateoModv2, did you make one your own, or did you just modify the code directly?
