[Theme][P6810XXLPP/XXLPS] Less Touchwiz, More Holo
Because in my opinion Touchwiz is really
ugly and outdated looking. Replaced many icons/colors with stock Holo ones, replaced all the cheesy rounded borders and gradients with hard edges and flat surfaces, made many things grayscale. Colors should be used for emphasis
, not cluttering the whole interface for no good reason.
Because for my needs Jellybean 4.1.x is a step back in functionality. They added lots of stuff that is useless for me (eg. multiuser), and made stuff I really need way more difficult (eg. mounting CIFS on /sdcard).
What is themed?
Settings.apk, SystemUI.apk, framework-res.apk, twframework-res.apk. Everything is treated with OptiPNG/DeflOpt/JPEGOptim and zipaligned.
How to install?
Do a Nandroid. Flash the .zip in TWRP or CWM. Wipe Cache/Dalvik. Reboot.
version was made for SkyHigh ROM P6810XXLPP ICS v4.2 - I don't know if it works on stock XXLPP. If it breaks something, just reinstall the backup you made earlier. Maybe it works on P6800 too, but then you have to remove the assert(getprop) line in the updater script.
version was made for the stock ROM.
Optional: The Dummy Files
pack contains dud replacements for all the annoying audio and animation crap Samsung packed in their ROM. This is not a flashable ZIP (because I was too lazy to create the updater script
). Unpack the archive, mount /system in recovery, push the folders manually, and chmod the files to 644. Then you're rid of all the pings, clicks, wooshes, and plops that Samsung found cool to have in their interface, without any option to turn that junk off.
