Both screenshots are with the same -pure black- wallpaper!
First one with Samsung Ripple Effect-Lock - the second one with AOSP-Lock.

How to get rid of this grey overlay?

Thank you!
Ok did you flash the V2 version? Because that's the one that takes the gray overlay away. I had noticed it along time ago which I didn't like! So I told him and he made the V2 zip to remove it . Some say the overlay makes it look more like a water affect. But I don't, rather a clean screen..
Just my 2

I don't have a Samsung Note II.

Would try to do it on my S3.
The smali should be nearly similar...

Baksmaling and smaling is no problem, but:

Which smali i got to mod?
And what changes i got to do in this smali?

I know the cause is the SecSettings file but have no clue how to "fix" it!

I have now re installed CleanRom AT&T and am back to normal but.... I loved the look of the Red ink effect!
Same issue. Real bummer.

Has there been anyone that has figured out a fix for the FC's when you flash the secsettings file?

Flashed the red/black mod along with the secsettings file on 4.1.2 Rogers i317M which has Chainfire's root-injected stock ROM and Perseus kernel and there was literally no change, meaning not only did the color selections not change in any way, but nothing negative along the lines of what I've read in this thread happened either. Put another way, it's as if I flashed nothing at all . . . and I did, really, I wasn't dreaming or anything .

I'm gonna do a bit more experimenting, but if I understand correctly, all in all, there are six (6) possible things that can be done:

1/ Flash the original mod (which I renamed "Finger Ink" for clarity)
2/ Same as above but with grey overlay removed

3/ Flash to add red and black to the original color choices (necessitating SecSettings flash also)
4/ Same as above but with grey overlay removed

5/ Keep the original colors but make them darker
6/ Same as above but with grey overlay removed

If that's precise, I'm gonna try all six to see what's what. I made a NAND backup before I start and I will restore the backup between every trial before trying the next one, and I'll post the results here if it helps the developer in any way.


* * * * * *


So I tried out all six above, and all six of them give me exactly the same result of no change whatsoever . . . nothing added, nothing removed . . . nothing new, but nothing screwed up either. Ink color choices in all cases, even after flashing the SecSettings with the red/black, stay exactly the same, as do their order, and no color choice points to a wrong color (like if green really showed up pink, for eg.).

I don't think I'm doing anything wrong, so I guess it just doesn't work with root-injected stock ROM . . . is it maybe an odexing thing? Which would be why those that have had success all seem to be on custom (i.e. deodexed) ROMs?
