Welcome to the offical Status Bar Modification Theme for the NST! Encompassed in this theme are three mods:

framework-res.apk, the file which contains all of the images most Android devices use in their user interface.
ReaderRMSDK.apk - the stock B&N reader app.
Shutdown Images - the images the Nook uses when it is either shut off or booting up.

Let's get right into it!

Features

ReaderRMSDK.apk

All of the battery icons in the status bar are upright, not sideways (more Android-looking).
The non-charging icons have black bars instead of just a long black strip to show the battery status (for easier reading of exactly how much battery life is left).
The GlowLight symbol is modified to look like the "brightness" symbol - when the light is on, there are little rays around the circle, and when the light is off, the little rays are absent.

framework-res.apk

Changes are the same as ReaderRMSDK.apk except for:

All battery icons are white-on-black, instead of black-on-white (because the stock Nook reader's status bar is white, opposed to the device's being black).
I also modified the WiFi signal icons to appear like the cellular-data bar graph style icons {which is what Windows 7 uses for WiFi (which is where I got the idea)).

framework-res.alt.apk

Changes are the same as framework-res.apk, except that the Reading Now button has been changed to a NoRefresh button. It can be used properly by installing Nook Touch Mod Manager and assigning "Reading Now" to NoRefresh.

framework-res.alt.batterypercentage.apk

Changes are the same as framework-res.apk, except that the status bar battery indicator now uses @vikramam's JB Circle Status Bar Battery Icons so that you can see the exact battery percentage remaining on the status bar.

framework-res.alt.batterypercentage+graymenu.apk

Changes are the same as framework-res.alt.batterypercentage.apk, except that the settings backgrounds have been changed from white to a dark gray to fix the white-text-on-white-background issue that occurs in several places on the Nook. This mod came from @nmyshkin and @mergen3107 in this thread - thanks, guys!

New Features:

Edited Back, Menu and Notifications buttons
Edited Settings and Search QuickNav buttons
Edited Settings and Search headers

Shutdown Images

Changed the "Read Forever" text in booting.pgm to "Rooted Forever".
Changed the "by Barnes and Noble" text in all of the shutdown images and rendor-0.png to "powered by Android".
Changed all of the text in all of the shutdown images to be in the Continuum font (the XDA logo font)
Changed the boot animation dots to a sliding black bar.

Hardware Requirements

These files were edited on a Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight using firmware 1.2.1. Please don't try this on on other firmwares. You can use this on a plain NST without GlowLight.

Installation Instructions

framework-res.apk - replace existing in /system/framework.
ReaderRMSDK.apk - replace existing in /system/app.
UPDATEDimages.zip -
  • booting.pgm belongs in /boot, which is not mounted by default on the Nook but is mountable through the command line.
  • The images in the shutdown_images directory in the downloadable .zip belong in /system/assets/shutdown_images.
  • The images in the boot_images directory in the downloadable .zip belong in /system/assets/boot_images.

ADB Tip
By the way, for framework-res.apk, you CAN push it to your device with ADB if you want to, but you CAN'T push it to /system/framework. It will bootloop your system.

Try doing:

Code:
adb push framework-res.apk /sdcard
Then, on your Nook, copy the framework-res.apk from /sdcard and paste it in /system/framework. It won't bootloop, it will just instantly reboot itself with the new framework-res.apk being used.

For ReaderRMSDK.apk, just do:

Code:
adb push ReaderRMSDK.apk /system/app
adb reboot

The Minimalist theme, with the Nook-N-on-black as the wallpaper. Cool, eh?

And let me know what you think!

NOOkie, as i am already on your 1337 ROM, i am assuming i don't have to replace the framework apk's from the OP.
Will installing only the batterypercentage apk replace my battery icon ?

If you are already running my ROM, to get the battery percentage version of this theme working, all you have to do is download the .apk, rename it to framework-res.apk, and copy/paste it from your sdcard to /system/framework (don't adb push it there). Your system will auto-reboot and use the new framework.
