[MOD] Extended Power Menu + CMScreenshot-port [v3] [2012/07/21]

    Description

    This is a mod for the LG Shine Plus (C710h) that adds and modifies the following:

    Extended Power Menu
    The Power Menu that pop-ups when you hold the "End Call" button has been modified to have different set of options. They are:

    * Removed "Mobile Network" toggle, as this was merely a shortcut to: Settings > Wireless & network settings.

    * Added "Screenshot": this triggers an intent "android.intent.action.SCREENSHOT" which is handled by CMScreenshot.apk (see feature description below).

    * Added "Reboot": reboots the phone. This uses the same confirm dialog as the "Power Off" option.

    * Added "Recovery": reboots the phone into recovery mode. Saves you from having to power off and hold three buttons. This also uses the same confirm dialog as the "Power Off" option.

    CMScreenshot-port
    Using an LG Optimus one and some information from here, I was able to port the "Screenshot" ability usually included in Cyanogenmod builds.

    To use this feature, simply bring up the (now extended) "Power Menu", and tap "Screenshot". The Power Menu will close, and one second later a snapshot of whatever is on screen (your framebuffer) will be taken and saved to your SDcard.

    A toast/notification should pop-up and tell you that the snapshot was successfully saved to your SDcard and what the filename is.

    Some warnings when applying this mod:

    * Neither I or karendar take any responsibility for any damages this modification may cause to your phone. I do this to further my knowledge and give back to the Android community.

    * This mod only works on a deodexed Gingerbread 2.3.3 ROM. That means if you are running the original STOCK firmware that came with your phone, this MOD will not function properly.

    * Continuing the above bulletin point, I have tested this using a clean install of karendar's custom ROM v20B R3. This ROM is deodexed.

    * Make a backup of your phone before applying this mod. I cannot stress this enough. This mod makes several changes to system/framework files within your phone and could cause your Android system to be unusable if improperly installed.

    * Since this modifies several framework files after flashing this mod, the boot will take longer 2x ~ 4x longer as it has to rebuild the Dalvik-cache. If it does not boot past the Android logo after 5 minutes, restore your backup that you made!

    Instructions:

    1) Download file to root of sdcard
    2) Reboot int CWM-recovery
    3) Flash the file
    4) Reboot normally

    Download:

    Latest version:
    mod_power_ss_v3_signed.zip

    Old versions:
    mod_crt_power_ss_v2_signed.zip
    C710h_mod_power_menu_v1_signed.zip (404'd)

    Anybody? :p Just want to know if it's useful.

    I've done some more tomfoolery and assuming all goes well tonight, I will have ported the CMScreenshot ability from Cyanogenmod in the LG Optimus One to this.

    Expect it soon! :p

    All right, so I returned to RA-GNM recovery and restoring my old nandroid backup of nearly stock 2.3.3. I'll test and see what happens.

    nope cant get it working. it must require something in the custom kernal in jiliiks rom

    I got the same result. I actually pulled the android.policy.jar file and my changes are actually in there, they're just not showing up.

    Actually from this link:

    What Is Odex And Deodex In Android [Complete Guide]

    Stock Gingerbread is odexed, specifically android.policy.jar, and therefore it's loading the odexed version which I have NOT changed.

    I will look into fixing this, but I guess I'll put the restriction this only works on deodexed ROMs.

    Hey congrats jparasite! ;) Glad you could pull it off!

    By the way, for the odex issue on stock 2.3.3 ROM, I suggest using "Odex me" application, it'll odex your entire system folder. You can then pull out the odex files and zip em up. Might be worth a shot!

    Is it just not showing up? Or does the phone not boot properly?
  21. damien1114

    damien1114 Active Member

    you mis understood what i said. I did what karendar said may work but it didnt and i think its becuase the rom may not have init.d support witch is needed for Odex Me to work

    jparasite Well-Known Member

    Oooh true, yes yes I understand. Still thanks for testing so far. My next goal is to try to port cyanogenmod's awesome power control widget.
