    You can not modify stuff in Z-drive, also copyright issues are taking seriously here, and if you feel that we should not take copyrights seriously, then you are in wrong place.

    What would be the point on modifying it, since you can not really put it back to the device ? Also there is high chance that any place where there is monocrome image defined for, will actually use the monocrome image. Also In essense the overwriting of items is handled with themes, and only if there is no item defined in a theme, then it will be read from files present in firmware.

    We here are highly against modifying the firmware in a way you are descriping you would be doing it, thus would recommend you not to do so. Anyway , I'm not aware of any application for modifying nvg files, however I would assume that mif files would generally be made with mifconv tool found from SDKs.

    Reverse engineering is still not supported here. However there is also a technical detail: only the mask of the indicator icons are used for rendering battery bar, signal pane, etc. It does not matter how colorful icon one provides, only the transparency mask will have an effect.
    Otherwise the SDK contains the identifiers for those icons, and the ex-open source Symbian^3 code (symbiandump project on SourceForge) even contains a set of the .svg files used for creating them. The sf-mw-uiresources package is a good candidate.
    (if encountering problems with .hg files, check http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Discussion/showthread.php?234539-SymbianOS-source-code for some ideas)
