[App] Blue-Themed Inverted Gmail v4.1.2
Google is rolling out Gmail v4.1.2 update. If you (like me) are running custom Inverted Google Apps, this 4.1.2 update will load to /data/app folder and will emasculate your Inverted Gmail apk in /system/app (i.e., you will no longer have your dark-themed, inverted Gmail). I was perusing the XDA Samsung Galaxy Nexus Forum and found what I needed… so sharing for anyone interested. All credit goes to Developer/Recognized Themer “Camblue” who created a Nexus theme called “NuBlue for Liquid 2.0(Build Alpha 6)”. Link below. I downloaded the zip, and extracted two apks: Gmail.apk (Gmail 4.1.2) and Phonesky.apk (Play Store 3.7.15). Note: this is NOT
a flashable zip for our i727 SR, as it has other files specific (systemUI, framework-res) for the Nexus… if you flash this via CWM you will surely F-up your SR phone. Simply do the following if you want a blue-themed Inverted Gmail (latest v 4.1.2) and blue-themed Inverted PlayStore (latest 3.7.15):
1) Download “NuBlue Liquid 2.0 Beta 1v3.zip” to your computer (can be downloaded to the phone as well… but someone will surely try to flash this on the SR… again, DO NOT FLASH on SR
, so to be safe, download to your desktop/laptop).
2) Extract using your favorite unzip utility.
3) Navigate to /system/app folder (on the extracted NuBlue folder)… the v4.1.2 Gmail is “Gmail.apk”, the 3.7.15 PlayStore is “Phonesky.apk”. Copy file(s) to your phone’s sdcard or external sdcard.
4) Rename your current apks (if you think you might want to restore these later) or delete current apks . First, look in /data/app for files like “com.android.vending-x.apk” and “com.google.android-gm-x.apk (where “x” could be 1, 2, or x depending on how many updates you have allowed). If not in /data/app, they will be in /system/app as “Phonesky.apk” or “Vending.apk” and “Gmail.apk”. Once you’ve renamed/deleted these, move to step 5.
5) Now navigate to where you copied the NuBlue file(s) to your phone’s sdcard/external sd… and first move to /system. Once in /system, fix permissions (rw.r.r), then move to /system/app.
