Ok guys, go easy on me. This is my first real attempt at theming anything major on the S4.

Last updated 07/23/2013 - Fixed colors in mms and mms send button text.

This is for the Verizon S4 VRUAMDK

For Dialers that will work with ME7 go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2438904

This is for Deodexed roms...
Note: Several users have had success installing this on odexed roms by simply renaming or deleting the odex files for the apps installed:
SecContacts.odex
SecPhone.odex
SecMms.odex

I hate the white dialer and have noticed from the many posts here I'm not the only one.
I didn't want totally blacked out apps but just didn't want white.
So here is what I came up with:
  • Dialer themed after the T-Mobile S4
  • Got rid of the cartoon looking blank contact (there may be some lingering that are pulled from framework files)
  • Mms emos changed with mostly yellow smileys.
  • Mms Widget themed (semi-transparent backgrond)

Probably more, I have been working on this for 3 weeks now. I thought Sense was hard to theme.
Touchwiz makes Sense look easy

Thanks to prsterero and Gunthermic for helping me find some of the color locations.

Enough banter...







As usual, I am not responsible for any damage or problems you may have. I recommend a full nand backup before flashing any mods.
Due to the nature of custom roms there is no way for me to know what has and hasn't been customized. This and all of my other mods should only be flashed after doing a backup in case things don't work the way it's expected.

These mods have been tested on several roms before posted but that is no guarantee that they will work on every rom out there.

This will replace SecPhone.apk, SecContacts.apk, and SecMms.apk
It will not modify or alter your framework-res.apk or your SystemUI.apk

Flash in recovery...

This is exactly what I wanted.

Flash in recovery, I assume?

No go.

Booted into TWRP, flashed, wiped caches, rebooted and phone process kept fCing. No phone, contacts, or messenger icons in drawer.

Back to TWRP, fixed permissions, same result.

Flashed revert, and all is fine.

I'm on stock, rooted MDK.

Off to bed, I'll check back in the AM.

Thanks!

This is exactly what I've been looking for as I'm on stock rooted odex. Once someone confirms its working for them I'll give it a go.

Themeing
I don't mean to thread hijack here but I was wondering if you could point me to a good resource with instructions on themeing apps?

What you have done look fantastic, and I can't wait to try it out. There are just a few small tweaks that I would like to make but to want to ask you take your time to do them (personally I prefer the green android smiley's). I would love to figure out how to do this myself. I'm pretty much starting from ground zero here so a "for dummies" guide would probably be in order.

Thanks again for the work you've done and for sharing it with us!

Looks great!

Question: I'm only interested in the phone theme because I'm using the aosp messaging app. If i remove secmms.apk from the zip and flash, will that theme just the dialer and contacts?

I would also like to see a version without the messaging app. Other than that, flash worked like a charm on Cleanrom 1.6.5. Love the dark dialer, but am not a fan of the blacked out messaging app.

I added an MD5 to the OP, check to make sure yours matches.
I have only tried this on "Jelly Beans" but the phone, contacts, and mms are based off the stock rom.

I know others have flashed it and it is working for them, I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work on stock rooted.

Again, I am running Jelly Beans but just to make sure the upload was good I downloaded it from the link in the OP and flashed and all worked fine for me.

Just remove the Mms apk from the zip file and flash, that should get you what you want.

Thanks, MD5 checks out.

I remembered I have an xposed module applied to the phone to enable call recording, maybe that's the conflict? I'll try removing that module and flash again.
