The Dithered Dark Holo Background mod replaces the original background_holo_dark.png file in the framework-res.apk.

Stock vs Dithered: (levels were adjusted to highlight the difference)
Example

Samsung AMOLED users:
The Black Dark Holo Background mod replaces the background_holo_dark.png to a all black (0,0,0) version of it. This is useful for those trying to maximize their battery life. A black background essentially turns off the pixels due to the way AMOLED works.

Files are attached to this post. Use CWR/TWRP to flash.

Credits:
Big thanks to endursa, jmattp, KamikaZeeFu, and Walhalla for their previous work modding the background on the HOX. Give them a thanks!

Does not work for omega v.3 with xxlef. Starts up but everything just fc's
Would love to have this implemented in omega, not a big fan of the banding.

I can attempt to make the mod on the latest Omega later on. I can't test it so you would have to be my guinea pig

I wonder why something like this isn't part pf the stock rom. The banding is ugly.
