Default [RELEASE] Minimal Matte Theme Version 2.0! 16/05/2011

Please be advised that this theme may be deprecated. Make sure you use it on a deodexed ROM. There are possible side affects such as bricking your phone that I cannot be held responsible for. Yadda Yadda Yadda. If you experience any issues with this theme please shoot me a private message. I rarely check this thread anymore and will be much more responsive by PM.

Credits go to shiftedx for the base PNG files. Credit goes to The Dark Lestat for the base firmware! I also need to thank Kyrillos13 for the rotary bg and dimple files for the unlock screen!

Sorry for the bad quality, I combated this with annotations.

Please note that version 2.0 is a full feature update.

PS: When installing Contacts.apk, afterwards when opening contacts.apk, the phone might force close 2 or 3 times, then it starts working again. Not sure why this happens, but don't be scared of it if it force closes, keep trying


Version 1.1!


Version 1.1 download link:
EDIT:: Please don't use the Contacts.apk from this .rar file as some people have experienced issues with it.

Edit:: For obvious reasons, I removed the link to version 1.0 because of the glitches it had. V1.1 has changed power menu icons and fixed menu backgrounds.

Version 1.3 and up now comes with an auto backup and installer. Run Update-ROM.bat. Curteousy of The Dark Lestat.

Install instructions. First put your phone into read-write mode with the below command. Then push all the files onto your phone with the below commands. Make sure all the APK files are in your ADB folder!

Backup your applications by running:
Code:
adb pull /system/app/Contacts.apk
adb pull /system/app/Settings.apk
adb pull /system/app/DialerTabActivity.apk
adb pull /system/framework/framework-res.apk
adb pull /system/framework/twframework-res.apk
Now backup the pulled files, and push the following files on using:
Code:
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/stl16 /system

adb push Contacts.apk /system/app/
adb push DialerTabActivity.apk /system/app/
adb push Settings.apk /system/app/
adb push framework-res.apk /system/framework/
adb push twframework-res.apk /system/framework/
Noted to work on:
- All Lestatious ROMs
- Indroid 3.0

Issues found on:
- Stock JPF (apparently no silent icon shows up in the notification bar) if anyone can confirm, that'd be perfect, thanks!
SG3 -> Nexus S -> LG G2X -> Galaxy Nexus -> Nexus 5 - Stock Rooted
Viewsonic GTablet - Rooted - Flashback 10.0 HC ROM

I think it should. I'm using JPF right now though.

Here's what you should do though, in case it doesn't work. Remount your phone into read-write mode:

Code:
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/stl16 /system
Then make a back up of all your files:
Code:
adb pull /system/app/Contacts.apk
adb pull /system/app/Settings.apk 
adb pull /system/app/DialerTabActivity.apk 
adb pull /system/framework/framework-res.apk
adb pull /system/framework/twframework-res.apk
Then put those in a separate folder, try the installation instructions. Reboot your phone. If your phone gets stuck in a bootloop, just reinstall your backed up files by remounting like before with:
Code:
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/stl16 /system
and then push all your backed up files back onto your phone and reboot and it'll restore to how it was before.

But it should work

Basically, be prepared to want to explode your computer
  1. Find the APK you wanna modify
  2. Find the PNG files you want to replace the original APK png files with
  3. Make sure the new PNG files have the same name as the old files you're replacing
  4. Extract the APK file into a folder
  5. Then run the following command:

pathToOldApkPngFiles = the path to the files you're replacing
pathToNewPNGFiles = path to the new files you're replacing them with

Open up a command prompt and run the following:
Code:
cd pathToOldApkPngFiles
xcopy "pathToNewPNGFiles" /U
Note: don't remove the quotation marks

Then paste your extracted APK res folder BACK into the APK folder.

You can do this by opening the APK with winrar, deleting the res folder, then pasting your new folder into the apk. Then you're done

Once you get the hang of it it's okay!
