Phone [Q] Changing color scheme.

Hello all.

I just bought my Samsung Galaxy s5 and I've been spending some time customizing it, but there is one thing that is driving me nuts and its this gross teal that the system seems to have global. I was wondering if it can be edited in the system files (my phone has been rooted and I have full access).

Any point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

For those of you who are not sure what I am talking about, here is some pictures.

Now I'm collor blind so I don't know how to diiscribe this collor but its ugly like hell!!!
I think by myself..."why Samsung?" I by you're phones, and you gives us this s**t to look at?
but ofcource you can make changes, but the S5 is one off this devices that says "NO ERRORS OR I LET YOU CRY"
This Is how mine looks like.







Guess all starts and end with personal taste.

tip for start:

go to [Guides & Links] THE GALAXY S5 UNIFIED MODS THREAD

from tdunham This awsome super smart dev has saved me lot off times with his how to's.
and after going to that post you are already half done with fighting ugly look of device.
good luck!!!

You have to decompile SystemUi.apk. there are many guides on how to do it but i recommend tickle my android (search for it). After that you can easily changes the images in the rez/drawable folders and most of the colors can be changed by altering the hex values in the xml files located in the res/values files. After, just recompile it again and push to your phone. Hope that helps a little. Would add more but I'm on mobile now and is a little pain to type.

Finally, a bit of direction. Thank you very much.
