Here it is in green (I think I like blue better ):
idk man, that green icon looks sexy to me personally
could you post the .png of it?
I noticed that the file name changes when uploaded to photobucket; it removes the "." in front of the 9.png, I wonder why it does that. I guess you saw that and added the "." before applying through NinjaMorph, right? I'm not sure if the stretchability is affected in any way......you will have to remove the "-1" after the "9" since it was added by photobucket because I already have a file on there with the same name (the red png )
The file name should be as follows: "ic_notification_overlay.9.png" (you will only see the ".png" if you've unhidden file extensions in your PC's settings).
I hope the stretchability isn't messed up because of this.......
Anyway, here it is:
thanks man, yeah i figured out the "." missing and added it myself. appreciate the quick response!
I edited my post, I don't think you caught the edit judging from your quoted reply, you'll probably figure it out though
you're correct, i did figure it out
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone on this thread. I'm just getting my feet wet with all this stuff - Apex 1.4 is my first ROM, and that notification icon was driving me crazy. I just used ninjamorph for the first time to change that to the green dot that bouchigo posted, and it looks so much better! The green is a little off from the other icons on my notification bar, but I'm not complaining! Rather, I'll use this as an opportunity to figure out how to edit these png's.
Thanks again everyone!
Careful when editing .9.png files, they are not like regular png files; .9.png files are able to stretch. Once you edit .9.png files they lose that ability and you have to add that ability again. Use the guide faber made "theme tutorial", or look for any post by "faber78" and the link is in his signature.
I did see that thread. That's going to be more of a weekend project when I can take some time to read up and try things out. Thanks again!
Alright no problem
Looks like it didn't stick...I just turned on the phone and I'm back to the big red one.
Did you use NinjaMorph? I've never been a big fan of it. I'd rather create a zip file and apply it that way......but that's just me
Yep, used your first zip.
I meant to reply to this, but I forgot. Maybe you guys should suggest it to Fabolous, I can't tell him what to do with ApeX, it's his baby
That zip has a blue overlay, not green, just making sure (but you probably knew that already)
This one? ------>
I flashed it and had the small red overlay (which was great) but now its back to the big one. I'll try flashing it again...
I meant it has a red overlay, not green (or blue for that matter)....I need to pay more attention....lol
Did you apply this zip and then make another change in the toolbox that required modifying the framework, like changing a battery icon???
Yep, good call. I changed the battery icon to circular w/ numbers. I guess that is what did it? And I'm also guessing that if I used Ninjamorph I'd be OK?
Yeah you should be.....what was happening is you were overwriting the framework you had just applied.
OK, by so using the toolbox or flashing a zip I can only change one framework element? To maintain the element I changed via the toolbox the other element must be done manually (ninjamorph)? Think I got it.
Unless you make all of your changes to one single framework and apply all the changes at once, then yes.
If Fabolous adds this mod to his toolbox, you will probably be able to add things separately.
But that's up to him.
Anyone know how to let him know...he added things for the battery icon and I think this would be a great option. I too hate the big honking red dot that covers the entire notification icon. Thanks for this mod
I posted it in the Apex thread. Wouldn't hurt if a couple other folks did too.
Dude, anyway to back this out? I thought is was just the red bubble with the number of downloads!!!! changed my whole not. bar..>??!!!!
I stated in the very beginning that this is stock ApeX except for the red overlay for the notification.
Restore your backup or make all the changes you had previously made before you applied this zip.
