 Could an alternate home screen app replace the assets such as s
"menu_item_background_pressed.9.png" or
"list_selector_background_focus.9.png", both found in  frameworks/base/
core/res/res/drawable in the open source project?  I have altered
those by changing out the assets and recompiling.

But can I make it so the installation of the home screen will open up
framework-res.apk, replace the asset, then re-package framework-
res.apk?  I realize this would then have broad ramifications, but just
wondering if it could be done.  thanks.

Also wondering if a alt home screen app, can replace icons of core
apps, such as Contacts, etc. thanks

1. Activity/ Layout on top of the InCallScreen

Hi All,

When I receive ringing state, I tried to launch an Activity  to run my
case TelephonyManager.CALL_STATE_RINGING:
        Intent intent = new Intent(context,     ABC.class);
        intent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK |

but I noticed that my apps is go behind the InCallScreen.
tried using delay to make the InCallScreen pop up first, then launched
my app, but still cannot replace on top of the InCallScreen layer.
Somtime its works (display InCallScreen for 2-3 second and then launch
my apps )

Could someone help me?



2. resource IDs and sharedUserId


If I am not wrong with the way android:sharedUserId is intended to
work, then my question is how to avoid overlapping resource IDs? appt
seems to aways start IDs at the same initial value (i.e. drawables at
0x7f020000), so there will be sort of conflict or ambiguation. As for
now I failed to get that cleared w/o digging in OS sources. Or I miss
anything, like magic "undocumented" appt option (not that aapt is
documented at all)?
