I have been looking for this png(see attachment) I changed one in HtcContact.apk. I've found several others like it but not the correct one. it's the default contact image for when you don't assign an image to a contact.

anyone?

also, I have been editting png files by pulling the apk with android commander, then editting or replacing a png using 7zip then pushing back using commander.

any harm in this? I haven't seen any yet........

try taking a peak in the framework files. /system/framework/com.htc.resources.apk and /system/framework/framework-res.apk

No harm, just keep a backup of whatever apk you modify. If something goes wrong you will basically just get force closes until you restore the original file

Pretty cool. How did you do it? What did you modify in the com.htc.resources.apk?

common_icon_default_avatar.png, people_detail_defaultphoto.png

I edited both of those pics using gimp. I'm not sure which one is the actual image for the contact list cause I got impatient and changed them both.

I sorta followed this thread>http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/htc-evo-4g...ding-sgbz.html

what I actually did was pull com.htc.resources.apk with the program android commander (http://androidcommander.com/), open the archive with
7zip, copied the png to a seperate folder, edited with gimp, copied back to the open archive, closed the archive and then pushed back to phone.

I must tell you, my profession is in auto repair, I really have no clue what I'm doing but I am having fun and learning as I go...
