Default [MOD] BlurHome Launcher - ICS Style



BlurHome ICS Style



I was currently using GO EX Launcher with ICS theme but I did not like the Push Notification ADS i was receiving plus i don't like the "cheapy" feel to Market Launchers so i went ahead and found ICS Icons from an ICS system dump and replaced the launcher,Browser,Phone,and MMS Icons for the Atrix 2 rom.

COMPATIBLE WITH:
  • SuperCharged v5 2.3.6
  • SuperCharged v4 2.3.5
  • Stock 2.3.5
  • Stock 2.3.6

    HOW TO INSTALL


    Step 1: Download all 3 Files from here and place them on your sdcard(not in a folder,just straight on sdcard)

    Step 2: Using ADB push files 1 at a time

    Step 3: Enjoy!

    FILES:


    BlurHome2.apk

    blur-res.apk

    Browser.apk *Re-Uploaded 3/7/12*


    Here are the Codes,you need to use adb while in windows.Open CMD to push 3 files.(if you dont have ADB you download it from the "Root your Atrix 2" post in the Development Section, its the file named "exploit.zip")

    With Each code u type each line one by one just incase your confused and trying to copy and paste the whole code into CMD lol ; )

    Code 1:
    Code:
    Select Code
    adb shell
    su
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    cat /sdcard/BlurHome2.apk > /system/app/BlurHome2.apk
    chmod 755 /system/app/BlurHome2.apk
    reboot
    Code 2:
    Code:
    Select Code
    adb shell
    su
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    cat /sdcard/Browser.apk > /system/app/Browser.apk
    chmod 755 /system/app/Browser.apk
    reboot
    Code 3:
    Code:
    Select Code
    adb shell
    su
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    cat /sdcard/blur-res.apk > /system/framework/blur-res.apk
    chmod 755 /system/framework/BlurHome2.apk
    reboot
    WARNING: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR PHONE,YOU BRICK YOUR PHONE THATS ON YOU. IF YOUR FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS YOU WILL BE FINE : )

    P.S I also provided some High Res ICS Wallpapers for download they were pulled directly from ICS 4.0 ROM

Your 3 codes state to reboot at the end of each one. If i recall, you don't need to reboot after pushing each file right? I thought you could push all 3, then reboot at the end. Digging the mod, about to give it a shot after my CWM backup.
Mine: LG G2 (Sprint)
Wife: Samsung Galaxy S4 (Sprint)
Backup: Galaxy S3,

For Sale: AT&T Galaxy S3 blue, GSM Galaxy Nexus...PM me if interested.

Thanks.as for not rebooting after each file push, i am not sure.i like to play it safe so i do one at a time. I would imagine you would be fine.

I am working on a lockscreen next .i want to give it a more ics appearence so that's probably my next little mod project .there is not many roms or mods for atrix 2 due to it being newish and support could be bigger so i figured i would try n whip some up and contribute .we need some more options in my opinion because this phone is great.has potential.i am not a dev but love messing around in Photoshop and changing appearences.i get bored quick with the same looks :)

I just checked the download,it says "595.87 KB" thats the file size i am getting,must be something going on on your side. i just downloaded it. perhaps try a different browser,or if your using your phone to download use a different app like opera mini or boat browser,hope it works out.

I tried the download on 2 different PCs and used IE, firefox and chrome. It appears on site to be 595kb but once downloaded it's 0 bytes. can you send it as e-mail attachment?
