[Q] How to replace orange 'no connectivity' icons in 4.4?
short version: how can I replace orange 'no connectivity' icons with white versions under 4.4 (KitKat)? I've tried to mass replace (in system apks) any PNG files I could find that seem to be related to signal strength -- but either I can't find the right ones or there's something even more tricky going on.
long version: I'm experimenting with my Lenovo Vibe Z (k910). I tried to install official 4.4 update (VIBEUI_V1.5_1420_4_ST_K910_NK_W_E2D0 if that's of any interest) + root + google apps. It seems to work fine except for the one unpleasant issue -- network signal icons turn orange (which clashes somewhat horribly with the rest of the visual scheme).
As far as I was able to google, orange means 'no connectivity'. This is clearly not true (all google services etc. work fine). However I don't really care about the fact that the system 'thinks' it is not connected.
What I'm looking for is some way to make these icons white -- either via simply replacing the icons or else making the system believe that it is, in fact, 'connected'.
Thanks in advance!
P.S. I've been able previously to fix similar issues under 4.2 (by simply replacing icon files). However I can't seem to get 4.4 figured out.
