You see, I am now using an android L theme on the new theme engine on PA BETA 1 but these navbar playstation icons bother me quite a bit. I much prefer the ones I use with softkeyz (no it doesn't work changing with it), the so called alternate android L's navbar.

Can it be themed manually or something? These ones to be more precise:

I got it! Had to edit the theme by decompiling and recompiling it back with the navbar icons I wanted. It is not that hard though.

so easy...change your theme apk file to zip format by renaming it.open with win rar and unzip it.you have some extracted folders and follow this:
assets<overlays<com.android.systemui<res<drawable-xxhdpi.in this folder looking for these PNG files like ic_sysbar_home,ic_sysbar_menu and etc. these are the themed ones for soft keyz.change them as you wish and remember your modification should respect the orginal png file size.anfter that surf back to the root of themed folders and rezip and sign it with some thing like signer app. done!
