The moment all us graphical junkies have all been waiting for has arrived! These tools decrypt the images in the SArtFile.bin file letting you edit them. There is also a tool to repack these.

(Note: I did not create these utilities and am not taking any credit for them) Thanks to asap18/longhorn49 for this wonderful program :)

Tools (Download at end of post):

artDecoder.jar ===> Decodes the bin file
artEncoder.jar ===> Encodes the bin file

Instructions:

1. Navigate to /System/Library/PublicFrameworks/CoreUI.framework/Resources

2. Backup the SArtFile.bin file and copy one to the artTools folder

3. Open a Terminal session and "cd" to the directory of the jar files and the SArtFile.bin you recently copied over there.

4. Type the code below
java-jar artDecoder.jar SArtFile.bin artfiles/

5. If all goes well you should see a directory called artfiles in the artTools directory. There are the images you can edit to your heart's content.

6. Once editing is done open up another Terminal session and "cd" back to that directory.

7. Type the code below
java -jar artfiles/ SArtFile.bin SArtFile.new.bin

8. A file named SArtNew.bin should have been created. The file size should be around 1.5-2.5 MB. If not, then you did something incorrectly.

9. Done, you may replace the files, logout and then in and test your skin! :)

Apologies asap18. I didn't take credit for your tool in any way shape or form, I picked it up from some other website and had I known it was you I would have given said it's yours.

java -jar artEncoder.jar artfiles/ SArtFile.bin SArtFile.new.bin

Is the line I find I need to use to compile, and

/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreUI.framework/Resources

is the folder I have to go to (about to try, wish me luck :-) )

Now all we need is an actual app and not a command-line-tool and there'll be a load of grinning terminal-unfriendly modders out there.
