________________________________________________


If you don't like EXR's default VAIO status-bar icon you can replace the icon with a custom icon,
that is an icon you create, a custom icon from the customPNGset.zip(see attachment) or one of the two avaible and ready to go setup .apks( heart.zip or oneforlove.zip). ^ ^

Warnings:
If you don't know what you're doing, then you can't do what you want.
This replacement tutorial applies ONLY to [ROM]EXR.M and C|ZU_4.4(761)|Nono Enchantress|SONY strongest landscaping users.




★ ★ ★ ★ HERE'S HOW TO DO IT★ ★ ★ ★


heart and oneforlove

oneforlove.zip(see attachement) changes navibar icon to:


heart.zip(see attachement) changes navibar icon to:

  1. Download your preferred file, extract it, copy SystemUI.apk from the .zip archive to your phablet's ext/int storage.
  2. On your phablet, launch a root explorer of your choice( e.g fx explorer with root add-on) or use the built-in R.E explorer( if you understand chinese).
  3. Copy the SystemUI.apk from your int/ext storage and move it to /system/priv-app.( r/w access needed)
    When asked, confirm replacement. If you are unable to overide the original SystemUI.apk, right click it to modify permissions( you need WRITE access) and try again.
    Understand you might brick your phablet if you don't know what you're doing!
  4. Restart your system. Voila! That's it! ^ ^

Replacing statusbar icon with a custom icon

Pre-made custom icons( customPNGset.zip):

  1. Download heart.zip or oneforlove.zip, it doesn't matter which one you download!
  2. Extract the contents of the .zip file to your desktop.
  3. Since you're trying to modify an apk, refer to this guide for further instructions.
  4. Replace *all icons from folder SystemUI/res/drawable-sw400dp-xhdpi and SystemUI/res/drawable-xhdpi with your favorite png image or choose an image from customPNGset.zip( see attachement).
    * icons you need to replace in SystemUI/res/drawable-sw400dp-xhdpi and SystemUI/res/drawable-xhdpi
    stat_sys_signal_0.png, stat_sys_signal_0_fully.png,
    stat_sys_signal_1.png, stat_sys_signal_1_fully.png,
    stat_sys_signal_2.png, stat_sys_signal_2_fully.png,
    stat_sys_signal_3.png, stat_sys_signal_3_fully.png,
    stat_sys_signal_4.png, stat_sys_signal_4_fully.png
  5. Transfer your new SystemUI.apk to your phablet's int/ext storage.
  6. On your phablet, launch a root explorer of your choice( e.g fx explorer with root add-on) or use the built-in R.E explorer( if you understand chinese).
  7. Copy the SystemUI.apk from your int/ext storage and move it to /system/priv-app.( r/w access needed)
    When asked, confirm replacement. If you are unable to overide the original SystemUI.apk, right click it to modify permissions( you need WRITE access) and try again.

If you ask which theme you need to be on(Settings-personalization-Xperia™ Themes) — the statusbar icon is a SystemUI component, so it does not matter! You can run any theme, be it a custom theme or an official Xperia theme.
