    New mod of Framework-Res to make the Triumph look a bit more like a MotoBlur device. I chose not to include the red highlights because I thought that they're a bit unappealing personally, but if people want them I'll go through and add it.

    Pretty much all of the changes are above. The battery icons are fixed so that they should be pretty easy to gauge percentage-wise.

    Download framework-res.apk
    Download rockneo's flashable ZIP

    Note:

    Make a backup of your stock Framework-res.apk, or a nandroid backup just to be safe.

    To install, there's a few options.

    • Easiest: as per rockneo's post, you can flash this zip with Clockwork Mod.
    • You can mount /system/framework and just push the framework-res.apk to that location using adb.
    • You can use a root File Editor with System access to copy the file (which will instantly reboot the phone)
    • You can use any Linux distribution and mount the system partition and copy and paste.


    Enjoy!

    I got bootlooped but I tried it on my phone though with root explorer and had to rename the file I'll try when I'm home and download it on my computer

    Edit: still bootlooping me, any solutions? can you make a flashable zip?

    Edit, got it to work, I made my own flashable zip, works perfectly, for anyone having issues, just go into your recovery and flash this

    I love this... What are the odds of making a version with the clock removed? Can it be done?

    Thank you! Glad it worked

    Anyone else notice the blue tint when you pull the notification bar down?

    Here's a screenshot:

    The problem with that is I don't know nearly enough to make a Deodexed rom, and that's something that would definitely need parts deodexed (much like changing text colors). If someone were to make a deodexed stock rom it'd make theming a tad easier.

    I'm not sure entirely why it's doing it, which makes it a tough fix. I'll have to look at it.

    this res mod still needs to be fixed, the tint when you pull down the bar annoyed me enough to go back to stock.
