Hi,

Id like to know the location (folders) and filenames of the "Navigation Bar" icons (KitKat)

I know there are other solutions around, but Id like to change them manually (if possible)

-I was looking for SystemUI.apk in system/app already, but it is not there... ?

-system/framework has "framework-res.apk" which has various designs of the NavBar icons, but not those that are actually getting displayed

-The app "SoftKeyZ Root" changes "com.android.systemui" which should be a jar file ?



I got a Optimus 3D (p920) with nameless ROM (4.4.4) :

I read that it is ROM dependent if you can change it from within the NavBar menu
and nameless ROM does not seem to offer it.

Thats why I ask if I could find them (change them) in the folders/apks (if these exist).

So far I found this app :

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...is605.softkeyz
it says "not working on most samsung and LG phones" but it worked
Still, if anybody knows how to change it manually, I would appreciate it !

I can see the tool "SoftKeyZ Root" changes "com.android.systemui" (jar file ?)

and I found flashable zips for the Nexus device, to change "Navigation Bar" icons.

And I stumbled across this :

http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...ction-t1413582


So as I could not find the files, I tried "SoftKeyZ Root" on my Optimus 3D using nameless 4.4.4.
And it worked !


This is how it looks (and works!) when using "SoftKeyZ Root" :





I have seen that the app uses "com.android.systemui", but that should be a java (jar) file then ?

Any help in finding the origin of the fitting png graphics is appreciated ! ^^

You've nearly got the right answer already.

Those icons are in SystemUI.apk, that's right. But, for KitKat, Google moved that file from system/app to system/priv-app.

Have a look at my theming tool, Tickle My Android (tinyurl.com/ticklemyandroid). It has a variety of navbar icons to choose from and can change them for you.

While your tool indeed looks very powerufll and very(!) interesting, (I might even give it a try)
I usually love to unpack APKs (if I found them) and exchange files.

Anyway, big thanks for the answer and your tool ! =)
