I am having a bit of trouble trying to change the background image posted below. I just want it Black, not the faded gray to black. I have the tools needed to de-compile and all that. I just need to know what and where the edit needs to be made. Thanks for your help!

if im not wrong i think you will find the image named background_holo_dark in the directory res/drawable-nodpi in the framework-res.apk.

For changing that image i think can simply open the apk with 7zip or winrar and go to the directory and extract the image for editing and then reput it in the apk with same program.

Ive never tried but i will try also now so always make a backup before messing with the framework ok. Wait for some expert to talk about it :D

qamrij, that is exactly what I want, and exactly the right place for the image! background_holo_dark in the directory res/drawable-nodpi in the framework-res.apk

Thanks!
