    To mod the graphics in SystemUI.apk and framework-res.apk. Can I just use 7zip to replace the graphics in the apks. For example... I unzip the apks, mod the graphics as desired, then, using 7zip, can't I just copy the mooded graphics and overwrite the ones in the unzipped (original) apk's? I know I CAN do this, but will they work once transferred to the phone?

    You certainly can make this work. In fact, it's exactly how I do it. The only thing that you can't change this way is anything written in the xml, as that requires decompilation. I've never had a problem editting .9.png files this way, but that could be because I use GIMP, who knows.

    I wasn't going to touch any of the xml's. I'm only looking to change the graphics. I realize there's quite a few folders and a crap ton of images to edit... heh. I'm just worried about modding systemui and framework-res, and messing somethng up to the point where I have to reflash the rom with the unmodded apks to get the phone working again. I've already ddited the lock screen locks and clock numbers. Wish I had a spare phone to test on
