Does anybody know, where I can find the original image-files (button backgrounds, menu icons, etc.) used by Android? I'd need something like the text input background for my own view, but would like it to match the existing style as exactly as possible. Also I need the correct padding etc. But besides checking out the whole Android source from Github I have no idea where to find those images.
Go to the folder where you installed the Android SDK. You find the resources in
platforms > android-* > data > res > drawable-*
