I replaced the stock android emoticons with regular looking ones.



Figured I'd post this guide in case anyone else wanted to do the same,

Instructions:

1 nandoid backup

2 download the attached .rar file

3 adb devices

4 adb pull /system/framework/framework-res.apk framework-res.apk
(make a backup copy of this file)

5 open the apk file with winrar

6 insert the .png files that are in the attached rar file into the framework-res.apk's \res\drawable-hdpi folder

7 adb remount

8 adb push framework-res.apk /system/framework/

9 adb reboot


For those looking for an easier way to do this you can make a flashable file here --> http://circle.glx.nl/

Talking trying!
@martijua i just tried it and let see if it worked. rebooting now!!!!
It worked great!!

@GENEius what are blacy emotes?

Update i saw the" blacky emotes" and i would say yes you can if you had all the icons the right sizes

I decided to try other icons and i found out that....

- nandroid backup is a must just in case you mess anything up!
- If it is not the right size 24 x 24 px it will show a blank space instead of an icon.
-While doing this process you will see a FC error but that's ok just adb reboot

POSSIBLE CAUSES FOR FC ERRORS!

- If you do not adb pull before you abd push.
- Receiving a text while trying this out.
Not 100% sure because both of these things happend within the same try!
-I noticed that i actually put >PNG instead of .png and that may have been the problem.
NOW IT"S WORKING WILL UPDATE WITH A IMAGE!


SINCE I AM ACTUALLY DOING A LOT FOR THIS AND WILL TRY TO DO MORE I WILL CREATE MY OWN POST!

Yes that could be possible provided the dimensions are correct and you name them accordingly.

Is this something that should not be done on a custom rom? I tried on my phone with the latest fresh rom and all of my contact disappeared.

Hm. I can use any pixel size. HTC Evo 4G seems to support most (I'm on 40x40 now). Using kawaii kitty faces from MSN :3
