You will need root access, I believe, to make changes to files in /system. I would attempt to restore your system from a backup framework-res.apk and try again. I can assist you with getting ADB working, but a custom recovery for your specific device may best be suited for its particular sub forum here.

i made it with root explorer. I made a copy from the system folder to SD card. then i sent the file via bluetooth to my pc. then i replaced some pictures and clicked OK. after this i sent the framework-res.apk back to my device. then i copied this and pasted it in System/framework and replaced the old one.


and now i cant boot anymore. :(

it just shows the startupshow (modified) and then there is a black screen which is illuminated a little bit..

so what can I do?

hope for a quick answer.

kind regards from sad DauL :(

Reflash your rom

I noticed this just yesterday after downgrading back to a 2.1 rom. I believe this icon is located in market.apk as I do not see it in my framework-res.

I will take a look this evening and see what I can create :)

Minor update.

Requested icons: Download complete, and pending update notification.

One is just the default, with blue colour. The update notification though, some of you should be familiar with. I thought it was the package manager for Ubuntu, but Google images are being weird right now so I cannot confirm. Anyway, its not mine, similar icons are found on veryicon.com, iconfinder.com etc.

Both files go to Vending.apk

Welcome to Android!!

After you edit the files:

Code:
adb remount
adb push ...

Without "adb remount", you will not have write permission to /system!

I noticed the same thing trying to update as well. Here is what I did:

adb pull vending.apk and apply my .png's
Download Titanium Backup from the market.
Backup vending.apk
Delete vending.apk
adb push vending.apk
Reboot

Lemme know how it goes! :)

Figured it out, dude! In the vending.apk, for me anyway, there are 2 drawable folders. hdpi and mdpi. Try replacing the .png in both of them, as it scales sufficiently for both!

    Well I never thought I would find myself contributing anything to XDA-Dev but I liked these icons so much I decided to share!

    These icons are either hand made by myself, or edited from various sources. They feature a transparent background, so they should work well with most statusbar's out there. I am currently working on finishing the blue style icons across the board, and perhaps the purple as well (like the battery).

    I have tested these on VanillaEclaire 4 and FroydVillan 1.1, and these work without MetaMorph etc etc.

    These are fairly simple to install:

    - Pull your framework-res.apk (should be in /system/framework) to the folder of your choice.
    - Open framework-res.apk with WinRAR or 7zip and navigate to res\drawable-mdpi (some may be called drawable-hdpi). Just find the .png files that match the ones in my zip files.
    - Drag your favourite .png files into the WinRAR/7zip window and click OK to save
    - Push updated framework-res.apk to your device and reboot. (adb remount, then, adb push ..., adb reboot)
    - If you wish to include the gmail, email, or sms icons like in the screenshot, please also update gmail.apk, email.apk, mms.apk as appropriate!

    Update: Pictures! Tons more icons!

    Update 2: Vending.apk icons (Market download notifications) See post



    Mass spam of the icons, pick and choose!




    Disclaimer:
    Please update the filenames of the .png's as appropriate. I have created/included several copies that can be used as you please, so the names don't always match the .apk files.

    Please make backups before pushing to /system

    I have read posts on this forum regarding editing .apk files and the need to re-sign them, or issues with endless reboots after editing .apk files. I used WinRAR and did not create a new framework file, only edited it. I have had 0 issues.

    Mega pack attachment below contains all icons from the other 3 zip files!

    Update: Pink/Purple pack!
