Default Cobalt theme / Softkeys

I like a lot, this theme
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...e.cobalt&hl=en
It's my favorite one. But i don't like the softkeys buttons. I tried to change them with SoftKeyZ / GravityBox / Xposed Installer, i mean i tried everything i could but no result.
The softkeys buttons i'd like looks like those :
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tronBlue&hl=en
Would you explain it to me, please, how to change them, but keeping the Cobalt - CM9/CM10/CM11 Theme ?
Thanks in advance.

Maybe decompile both themes and replace corresponding icons? Not hard to do actually, but may involve copyright issues especially if the theme is a paid one...

As far as only replacing corresponding pics in the theme's APK files, I think WinZIP/WinRAR might already be enough.
You could upload the themes somewhere and I'll check it out tomorrow (it's 11PM here in China), no guarantees though
