    alright, i was sigging aroud a little bit in the calculator apk, and changed the icon's colors, that was surprisingly simple. how do you change the color of the buttons? is it the xml files? i couldn't get them to open, so i'm guessing they're in there.

    I can never get XMLs to open. They will not open with any text editor. Even the IDEs that I have will not open them.

    There is not much to look at in this signature.

    If you use apk manager and decompile the apk then you can use notepad to edit them

    found a free xml editor, but most of what comes up is just a bunch of squares...chars missing from my comp i guess. could be some settings aren't right. i'll try to work on another apk or try another editor, there were a few i saw when i googled it. either way i have some fiddeling and finding to do. i've needed a project for a while. and thanks guys. maybe some day i'll be able to release something of my own.

    I have a question, when I open a file to edit, let's say the stock settings icon you see in the app drawer. Obviously it's pixelated, is there a way to do a color fill without having to color each pixel individually? Does that make sense?
    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.

    Do you mean colorize it (a tint of a certain color)? Or do you want to replace a certain color (like they do on the news with green screens)?

Size:  7.2 KBcolorize it, to give you a better example I want to change the colors of the stock settings icon. If you look at the icon on a vanilla droid set up it has a blue circle in the icon but if you blow the image up you see that it is actually some shades of blue so the pixels have some the same color but some just a bit off color of the blue. I want to make it red but I can't match the colors properly to make it look good. Is there a way to match up the blue colors and turn them into corresponding red colors?

    Edit: Added pic of icon

    Are you using Photoshop or GIMP? I know how to do it with GIMP but not Photoshop, and I am not at home right now to find out how. Maybe a themer here will know how.

    The only place that I think it might be would be in the "Color" drop-down menu at the top.
