Default Changing status bar icons

Could someone please tell me the easiest or best way to change the status bar icons, such as WiFi, mobile signal, etc. I'm currently using Xposed Icons, but there are a few it will not change on the Verizon N2. I have tried Ninjamorph, but it is saying it can't mount the system partition as RW. Thanks in advance for help on this.

The easiest thing to do is use Android MultiTool from right here on XDA. It makes no difference what ROM you are on. All of the statusbar icons are in the systemui.apk. simply copy the Systemui.apk and he frameworks.apk into the programs "files" folder and decompile it to your PC. Trade out the icons you want, recompile, then replace the old systemui on the phone with the new one. It takes no battery life like xposed does and is relatively easy. The OP for Android Multi Tool has plenty of explanations.
