I have looked everywhere I know to look. I am trying to manually change the color of my Signal, WiFi/3G/E, and battery icons in my status bar to specific colors. Can someone help me by telling me the directory of where to find these separate images? THANKS!
After much exploring, I did find where these files are located. Can anyone tell me how I should edit them since the .png file can't be opened?

They're in a .artwork file on the device, which means you have to download the decoded files. Here.
Then you need to look in the Shared folder. All of these go into the UIImages folder of your theme.
On Retina Display devices you need both the regular and @2x versions in your UIImages folder for your changes to show. Don't ask me why. The low-res version isn't actually used, it just has to be named the same and in the same directory - you can, in fact, simply make the non-@2x version a 1x1 transparent pixel if you want; doesn't matter.

Tell me if this is accurate-
I will make a folder in /Themes named whatever. Then I add /Themes/______/UIImages. In that folder I add these images and that is it?

That sounds about right but I don't theme anymore so i could be wrong.
