Since I can't make the letter bigger in the title THIS MOD IS FOR THE PRESTIGE 7 WITH ICS 4.0.3. PLEASE READ A WHOLE THREAD BEFORE TRYING ANY MOD!!!!!
If by using this mod the world comes to and end, or you are suddenly sucked back in time only to accidentally kill your grandfather leaving your future uncertain, I take no responsibility for the consequences. Oh yeah. same thing if it screws up your tablet. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
After a little discussion with Macktion about the potential for custom roms and development on the Visual Land Prestige now that the firmware is available, I put together a small mod just to show some things that can be done. Included:
Some new system icons edited into framework-res and SystemUI - battery, USB, WiFi status and a few others
Minor WiFi tweaks
Memory tweaks cooked into services.jar using ICS OOM Priority Charger
I have also included a backup of all the stock files so you can restore them if you have any issues.
I didn't include a build.prop because since I don;t have the actual pad, just another pad running the firmware I figured they are easy enough to find.
To install this you will need to have the Android ADB Drivers installed on your PC and USB debugging enabled on the tablet. Just unzip it to a folder on your PC, then run the push.cmd by double clicking. If you see any errors open a command prompt in the folder you unzipped to and run. If no device is found make sure your PC is seeing the tablet and recheck USB debugging.Code:adb devices
If that doesn't work try installing ADB Wireless. Once installed run ADB Wireless and add the IP and port from ADB Wireless to the end of this in command prompt and hit enterEXAMPLE:Code:adb connect xxx.xxx.x.xxx:xxxxx
re-run the push.cmd.Code:adb connect 192.168.2.145:5555
There is an identical push file in the backup folder to restore stock files.
Props to the UOT Kitchen for some of the icons used, the original creator of the boot animation, whoever that may be and the creators of the OOM editor.

I just ran this new tweaked version on my Prestige 7. I will play with it for a few days and report back, but so far, so good.
So far it has been great. Much smoother performance from start-up and a bit better speed overall.
i did this to the T and it worked. i bought my wife a least expensive tablet because she doesnt do a lot of things on it, but these tweaks and icons are freak'n sweet. i have a acer iconia a100 and i wish i had those cool icons. thanks for posting this. 100% satisfied!!! you da man!
So you have Honeycomb, but you can do this too. It can be as difficult as creating your own icons and replacing existing icons in systemui and framework-res, easy as taking icons from different existing files and replacing them, or a little more difficult by using images and icons you can download as freeware then convert them to use. What I did to start is unzip the apk into a folder, then go through the res folder looking at all the images taking the ones I wanted or changing them. YOu can change the default bot image, the flashing android to a custom logo. It can be simple or total. All I use is Paint, Gimp, and 7zip.
Just picked up my Visual Land Prestige 7 yesterday at Fry's for $119.99 and installed last night. Works great would like to see you do more. There is one thing I would like to know is can I change the boot animation. Thanks for your work.
Not having the tablet I can do a little more, but it's hard to dump all the testing on you guys, so I don't like going too crazy. Nice thing is the tablets are next to impossible to kill.
