Regarding those smudges around the icons: Use png format as I suggested and make the background transparent and you'll avoid those problems Let me know if I can help you with that, as I got some time today and tomorrow. I think I have already done your Desire taskbar battery icons in png, or at least some that are pretty close. I can send them over if ya like, just gimme a notice...

BTW in most of the lasts posts, those links are showing taskbars where the icon behind the signal bars are skinned, and not the signal bars themselves. There are no problems having a background for the signal bar icons to make them visible on a white background. The problem is how to change the colour on the bars themselves. Cause I can't find the right ico files in the dlls...

Hey longice and DN, take a look at Post 3, it has the .ico files of the signal bars. I know nothing though, so I'm not sure if it's do-able. Thanks for your hard work!

So far everything I have read supports this info. On GSM it seems the bars are not skinable, in the Tsowen thread they sate that the bars are rendered in some way the prevents it.

Crap. I missed one icon when fixing the smudge issue I've attached a fixed phcanOverbmp.dll and the fixed icon (1039.ico) in the zip file. I'm really sorry, guys!!!

Oh yes, that post Thanks, but the problem is that the icons which shows the signal icons there are the LargeTitleBar.dll and we don't use that on our diamonds So editing that file unfortunately won't change a thing...

Yeah, it seems there's a possibility of skinning the bars on CDMA and not on GSM, but I don't know for sure...

I see. I think we can possibly do something with the background, or 64-71.ico in phcanOverbmp.dll, or 4674/4675/4681/4682.ico in shellres.192.dll so that it looks more like android. Even a tiny green dot or an tiny android-bot that replace the original "tower". What do you guys think? Sorry for asking too much.

No need to apologize, keep coming with ideas But this is DN's project, I'm just doing some very small pieces in adopting it to 6.1...

I thought 64-71.ico was kinda android-like already? And I think they override some of those icons in shellres.192, but I'm not sure about that...

Looks like all the .ico was already modified to android-like, but they were not displayed. Maybe we need to find the "background" file. Let me as around.

AFAIK it's not possible to have a background on taskbars in WM 6.1. But please please prove me wrong
