    MODS FOR 1.6 (NOTWIZ) ONLY

    We all love BH_MAN's hard work for these custom roms, lets cut him some slack and do some of the easier things like themes etc instead of asking him

    I slightly modified the theme that came with the new 1.6 no twiz rom to fit my style a little more.

    I figure i'll post it here just incase anyone else wants to use it.

    Nothing fancy, just some tweaks..

    Download:
    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    Instructions:

    push the framework-res.apk into the system/framework dir
    push the TwLauncher.apk into the system/app dir

    reboot

    Also if any of you want to do any of your own modding,
    just open up the framework-res.apk with winrar, open res and extract the drawable folder. Go nuts and when you are done making modifications just re open the apk in winrar and go to the res folder and replace the drawable folder by dragging the edited one and replacing it.

    PS.. I honestly couldnt find the file for the top rounded corner thing, so if you happen to find it, please provide the NAME of the file.



    UPDATE:
    Removed the rounded completely and added a drop shadow:

    here is the updated Framework-res for that:
    ***MAKE SURE YOU HAVE pushed THE TwLauncher before
    pushing to this one or you will have the bottom rounded corners!
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=G06E2EIR





    Updated the tab

    This is all my personal preference so...
    tomorrow i'll make a default one with no rounded edges..
    if anyone wants this version i'll post it up to dl.

    Download link: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=BTK8H0IN



    Here is the DarkStar modified without rounded edges.. (white)

    And Finally, Fixed the ugly TWIZ GREEN 3G and EDGE DATA ICONS!
    Just push this framework-res.apk

    So all you've modified in this theme is the drawer and the battery icon, right?

    Looks good btw

    Nice! Fixed most of what I had an issue with.

    Two things: Whenever the data connection is working, the icon goes to a green version of the stock behold 2 data icon..... any way to change that? I'm using 2g in this area.

    And while I don't like the rounded corners really, is there any way to keep the old handle? it looked much cleaner.

    Thanks :) Great work so far

    There is a way to fix the ugly GREEN icon, i'll have to have at it tomorrow. Same with the arrow, i'll make one tomorrow for those who just dont want the corners.

    Just did it and it looks great. Thanks Microhaxo.

    Also, I downloaded the updated .zip and all it contains is framework-res.apk, so this is the only thing I adb pushed. Only my notification bar themed, therefore that leads me to believe that by not adb pushing twlauncher.apk you will not modify the handle.

    Edit: Did not realize the round corners were still there. The top is shadowed by the bar and the bottom is too dark to see.

    Yep. I just pushed the framework-res.apk only and it replaced the notification bar rounded edges, but left them at the bottom.

    I really like the drop shadow look at the top... now to just remove the rounded edges without removing the current app drawer.

    Edit: Oh you're right... I just noticed that as well.

    The updated zip is for those who have already flashed the TwLauncher.apk.

    I should have noted that more clearly.

    You dont have to re-sign the apk, just open the apk you want to modify, extract the drawable folder on your desktop, make changes to the files inside and then once you are done re-open the apk and drag the drawable folder from your desktop into the apk and it will repack and replace the files. No need to sign.

    @micro can i also edit drawable-port and drawable-land the same way? i'm editing advanced launcher not frameworks. i am going to use the twiz app try handle to keep a more stock feel and some other minor changes.

    So can I change the vibrate icon color through these files? The black icon is hard to see, and wanted to change it to something more visible in bright light, like white.

    hey i wanna pull the framework-res.apk from the stock 1.6 rom i know this is not the thread for that but i have a quick question...just want to know if this looks right:

    "adb pull /system/framework/framework-res.apk to c:\"

    or is it this:

    "adb pull /system/framework/framework-res.apk to c:\framework-res.apk"

    or is it different then both?

    *i want the apk to copy to my c:\ dir*

    thanx for any help.
