    Default [GUIDE] How To change iOS4 Status Bar Icon
    Here a simple easy to follow guide wriiten by me. In order to change the status bar icons for signal bar, 3G, Wifi and battery in iOS4. You have to rename and drop all files to UIImages folder instead of the usual com.apple.springboard folder as you did in iOS3. Please refer below on how to rename the files according and all BIG CAPS, small caps and spacing must be correct.

    For signal bar
    Default_0_Bars to Black_0_Bars
    Default_1_Bars to Black_1_Bars
    Default_2_Bars to Black_2_Bars
    Default_3_Bars to Black_3_Bars
    Default_4_Bars to Black_4_Bars
    Default_5_Bars to Black_5_Bars
    FSO_0_Bars to Silver_0_Bars
    FSO_1_Bars to Silver_1_Bars
    FSO_2_Bars to Silver_2_Bars
    FSO_3_Bars to Silver_3_Bars
    FSO_4_Bars to Silver_4_Bars
    FSO_5_Bars to Silver_5_Bars

    For 3G
    Default_UMTS_ON to Black_DataTypeUMTS
    FSO_UMTS_ON to Silver_DataTypeUMTS

    For Edge
    I don't use Edge in my country so sorry I have no idea. Maybe someone can update here.

    For Wifi
    Default_0_AirPort to Black_0_WifiBars
    Default_1_AirPort to Black_1_WifiBars
    Default_2_AirPort to Black_2_WifiBars
    Default_3_AirPort to Black_3_WifiBars
    Default_4_AirPort to Black_4_WifiBars
    Default_5_AirPort to Black_5_WifiBars
    FSO_0_AirPort to Silver_0_WifiBars
    FSO_1_AirPort to Silver_1_WifiBars
    FSO_2_AirPort to Silver_2_WifiBars
    FSO_3_AirPort to Silver_3_WifiBars
    FSO_4_AirPort to Silver_4_WifiBars
    FSO_5_AirPort to Silver_5_WifiBars

    For Bluetooth
    Default_Bluetooth to Black_Bluetooth
    Default_BluetoothActive to Black_BluetoothActive
    FSO_Bluetooth to Silver_Bletooth
    FSO_BluetoothActive to Silver_BluetoothActive

    For Battery
    Default_BatteryCharged to Black_BatteryCharged
    Default_BatteryCharging to Black_BatteryCharging
    Default_BatteryBG to Black_BatteryDrainingBG
    Default_BatteryInsides to Black_BatteryDrainingInsides
    Default_BatteryLowBG to Black_BatteryDrainingInsidesLow
    FSO_BatteryCharged to Silver_BatteryCharged
    FSO_BatteryCharging to Silver_BatteryCharging
    FSO_BatteryBG to Silver_BatteryDrainingBG
    FSO_BatteryInsides to Silver_BatteryDrainingInsides
    FSO_BatteryLowBG to Silver_BatteryDrainingInsidesLow

    I will update from time to time. Hope you find this guide useful

    Thanks so much! This has been very helpful. Do you know the name of the lockscreen icon?


    I have been using Winterboard for modding but would love to know the directory location of all of the above files.

    Thanks again!

    The silver names worked for me but only without "@2x". Perhaps it's because I'm running ios4 on a 3g.

    BTW...how did you find these names? I couldn't find these files anywhere. I'm using a winterboard theme to make it all work but usually I like to replace the actual file.

    They actually aren't. I've got a 3g running ios4 and things are a little different from ios3.

    I'm fairly certain that most of those images are packed away in the Shared.artwork file. Don't hold me to that though.

    Guys, just get MobileTerminal and use locate silver_Bluetooth.png or whatever the file name is (exact capitalization) when you want to find the dir of a file. Thanks for posting this stuff, BTW!

    Does anyone know the location of the statusbar icons that are in specific apps? Like settings.app and the other ones?

    I have tried to just copy and paste my modded statusbar icons into the folder, but no luck.

    @drjailbreak: The icon for EDGE is Black_DataTypeEDGE.png and Silver_DataTypeEDGE.png (Add @2x for retina)

    @xKrNMBoYX: I threw the signal bar files from the iPhone 4 into a ZIP file for you, they are the @2x images.
