    Yeah I think I can do it with just my stock archive utility. If I want to replace the icons do they have to be 48x48 or can they be a bit smaller or bigger?

    Or I guess I should go off the size of the icon that I am replacing, like if it is 72x72 replace it with something 72x72 correct?

    To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

    I forget what the size of my icons are. Sorry, I am not at home.

    Generally you want to make them the same size. Otherwise they won't look right on your phone, see screenshot for example of a wrong sized icon being put in.

    ok that's what I figured but wanted to double check. I am a complete noob with this stuff so I am literally just learning on the go here. I am extracting the apk to get to the folder where I find the res folder and all that stuff, do I need to zip those back up after I am done theming them?

    not sure on a mac, on PC you can just drop them back into the zip after modifying the contents. but again, i'm not sure about a mac. now, if you have a windows side, you can just grab apk manager... unless they have a mac version. then it does all the unzipping/rezipping for you.

    odd ones are status bar icons (stat_*) run anywhere from 38 high to 45 high, wideness doesn't matter for those.

    Can you open up the .apk with out extracting it? If so, just open the .apk and drag and drop your moddified .png's into the appropriate folder.
