Thanks for the mod but as long as it is made with UOT I don't think it is mandatory to put it to the 1st post. You can share your work here though. But yes, with UOT you can make some pretty mods.

Cheers!

It would be very nice if someone prepare transparent/semitransparent status bar for latest Aurora and share it with us. Also volume wake key sholud be upgraded to v2.09.

There are instructions on how to make semitrasparent status bar on the 1st page (posts 3,2). You need to modify the SystemUI.apk, so grab the mod you want (or stock SystemUI.apk), mod it and flash it. It's easy and worth trying
Since 2.07 there are no changes to android.policy.jar, framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk files, so all mods (including wake-up-with-volume-keys) work ok. I tested them. Flash the attached 2.07 version and you should be ok!

Cheers

Yes, I try to recompile SystemUI.apk, but without success. There must be a mistake, that I made, so if someone could upload that moded file, I would be very pleased.
And thanks for "wake volume key" info!

Tell me the process you are following. Are you installing framework-res.apk before decompiling? What errors does it print?

New mod guide on 3rd post:

SystemUI.apk - bools.xml

The most useful thing is that it brings back the H (HSPA) icon on signal. I might include this mod in all my future SystemUI.apk releases if dzo doesn't implement it.

Cheers

EDIT: I found out what config_statusBarShowNumber does. Enable it and you will have something like this :

Hi all,

Question re: weird behaviour on APK files I've edited according to http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...07&postcount=2

I use a couple of apps regularly and have tried modifying them to make the UI suit me a bit better. For what it's worth, one's a Twitter app and one's a keyboard.

I've used apktool to decompile them, edited certain res .xml files to change the interface and then compiled them again with apktool. I've then signed them using Sigare (obviously it's not signed using the original developers key, but a key that I've made)

I've then replaced the apk in data\app with my modified one.

The problem is that, while the new app works for a little white, after a while it just disappears from my app list. When I go to run it directly, I get a message that the app won't load.

TL;DR: apps I've modified work to start with and then don't. Anyone think of a reason?

Maybe this is a "sign" issue. Try downloading the apkManager 4.3.1 from the 1st page and take from the others/ folder the files signapk.jar, testkey.x509.pem and testkey.pk8. These are responsible for signing the apk and are which I am using. Put them at your work dir and try this command (May vary on Windows, not sure):

Code:
java -jar signapk.jar -w testkey.x509.pem testkey.pk8 yourunsignedapkhere theoutputfilehere
Hope you luck!
Cheers
