Could you shorten your post please? All the information is a bit overwhelming so it's hard to extract the exact issue or question...

If you're running a deodexed rom you can manually replace the .png file in "SystemUI.apk" (located in /system/priv-app/) or "framework-res.apk" (located in /system/framework/). I'm not exactly sure which of these 2 files contains the .png file('s) you're looking for, so give it a shot!

Tnx mate I do remember someone post by editing the build prop but then seems like I cannot find where it is.

Its not the build.prop

SystemUI.apk and framework-re.apk

SystemUI.apk is in system/app and framework-res.apk is in system/framework

You can pull them to your PC and then open them with WinRAR (Or similar) and find the .pngs which you can just change

They will be in the res folder.

If I pull them out to PC the apk, open them with WinRAR, find the .pngs which I will replace, save the replaced ones with WinRAR, put them back to system/app and system/framework, overwrite the original one (backup them first), reboot, it will work?
