Very Quick tutorial on changing the lockscreen slider color.

*WARNING*This may not work on your CM10 ROM

Requirements
  • Photoshop or Gimp.
  • 7zip
Using a file explorer, copy framework-res.apk from /system/framework to your sdcard.
Mount your Kindle and copy the framework-res.apk to a safe location and extract it.
Find the following photo's.

In the drawable-sw600dp-mdpi folder:
  • ic_lockscreen_handle_normal.png
    ic_lockscreen_handle_pressed.png
    unlock_default.png
    unlock_halo.png
    unlock_ring.png
    unlock_wave.png

In the drawable-mdpi folder:
  • ic_lockscreen_camera_activated.png
    ic_lockscreen_camera_normal.png
    ic_lockscreen_glowdot.png
    ic_lockscreen_handle_pressed.png
    ic_lockscreen_ime.png
    ic_lockscreen_lock_normal.png
    ic_lockscreen_lock_pressed.png
    ic_lockscreen_unlock_activated.png
    ic_lockscreen_unlock_normal.png

Now edit the colors of these pictures.
*Tips*
  • If you can't add adjustments to the picture, make sure the picture mode is RGB Color, not Indexed Color or Grayscale.
  • To change the color, change the brightness all the way down until it is black. Then go to gradient map and select a color. Then select color balance or Hue/Saturation and change the color.

Now save the edited pictures and save to a safe location.
Next mount your sdcard and find framework-res.apk
Right click, select 7zip, and select open archive. Then replace the original pictures with the ones you edited.(What I do is delete the res folder and replace it with my own) Now, using root explorer, copy the edited framework-res to /system. Then change the permissions to rw-r-r and then move to /system/framework and let it replace the previous one. Reboot and the changes will be made.
Enjoy!

This works for a few things.
This method works for quite a few system images, not just the lockscreen. The problem is knowing which images to change in which folders. I would love to have some kind of annotated list from a handy website. I found something similar for editing Windows resource files where everything was numbered and mapped for convenience, but I haven't found anything like it for Android. Does it exist?
