      Never Give Up
    Heres what i know so far about UOT Kitchen and the Proclaim

    Things it changes successfully:

    The Battery Icon
    Status Bar Icons such as speakerphone, next alarm, usb, adb, etc.
    Popup windows except volume slider
    Status Bar Background options
    Boot animations
    Windows animations
    Fonts
    The dividers you see in your menu screens
    The emoticons

    Things it only partially changes:

    The Wifi Icons, you get 8 out of 32
    None of the data icons
    None of the Signal Icons

    Things it doesn't change at all:

    Quickpanel icons and colors
    Check boxes and buttons
    The color that pops up when you press an option
    The Lock Screen
    text boxes
    and much more

    Things i change manually:

    Everything i can that i figure out as i go along such as tabs, the activity title bar, list backgrounds, etc.

    BE CAREFUL OF ICONS WITH THE NAME ENDING IN ".9" tHESE ARE 9-Patch files and can't be touched unless you
    know how to create or modify a 9-patch image/


    Some Tips:

    For the data icons you just need to change all the icon's names ending in "_3g)" to "_evdo"
    This will make your Data icons work.

    For the signal icons:
    Copy all the signal icons from "systemui/res/draweable-mdpi" to a separate folder
    and add "vzw_" to the beginning of the names and paste them back into the same folder you got them from.
    Do not delete the old one's although i'm sure if it would matter. This will make your signal icons work

    For the wifi icons theres nothing much you can do except create your own if you want
    the data transfer arrows to show up. Otherwise you will have 2 different icons.


    Addition info:

    I never new a thing about theming a few months ago but i took DH's framework files that are required
    by UOT Kitchen and compared them with the stock files to see what was different. After some time and study
    i've learned what is what. You will need something like 7Zip to extract the framework-res.apk and the
    systemui.apk to view and change the files. To get started all you need to worry about is the mdpi folder
    located within the framework-res.apk and the systemui.apk files. Once you have finished editing just open
    the UOT Kitchen files with 7Zip and add the 2 folders named drawable-mdpi back into their respective locations.
    By dragging them into 7Zip in the right directory the old files will be overwritten, just close 7zip and install
    through CWM.

    I hope maybe this helps some people out. If any android veterans have some more tips to add plz feel free to do so.

    Yes me too. It's very time consuming.

    Not only time consuming but hard to actually find the time when you have 2 whinney brats.
