When we change the images for the notification bar , etc , will we have to change the spacing between the images manually ? Also can we do this to any app we want to install , i.e change the images in the app ?

how do you mean spacing between images and i never attempted it with a app so if it did go wrong mmm

by the way had try changing signal etc and you cant the theme of the rom takes over im tryign to look into how to change that

In the 2.3 rom , the spacing between the status icons like battery and signal is very little , replacing those images with larger ones will make it overlap right ? So should we increase this spacing manually ?
