[DL17][EC03] Softkey Themes & Ticker Clock Requests?
So, in case you didn't know already, the Continuum's soft keys are actually part of the one full screen... Which means we can change them with a little effort
Hit me with ideas with what you want to see within this thread
Here are the zips so far
you need CWM
Here are the zips for 2.2 Froyo on the Continuum! Thank you biznazz for taking the time and porting them over He deserves all the credit for porting, and if you are grateful, click http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=135 and click thanks

***NEXUS S THEME***
This will change your Softkey Functions and looks to match that of the Nexus S!
Just to warn you...
CWM 2 : http://www.mediafire.com/?8hzfp63j1o2824q
CWM 3 : http://www.mediafire.com/?k12f85pu8b0vr6o
If you want the default Softkey Functions back (like when you want to try any of the other softkey themes) Then flash the Default_Softkey_Actions.zip
Default Softkey Actions:
CWM 2 : http://www.mediafire.com/?u5t12dg6lzyyues
CWM 3 : http://www.mediafire.com/?05e83h878ztz4zq
***NOTE ABOUT CWM 3***
Not all the packages are CWM 3 compatible... The Nexus Theme is, and so is the Defaul Softkey Action zip.... For now if you want to flash any of the other themes, download the old Blue cwm 2 and flash that from within the new yellow cwm 3. Then you can flash the files
If you want a certain theme converted, i will do that... I just don't wanna waste any extra energy doing that if i don't have to :P
If you wanna try tackling this yourself, there really isn't much you have to do... Before embarking, however, make sure you have at least a little knowledge in what your doing.... :P
What You'll Need:
-The Framework-res.apk from /system/framework
-7-zip (easy way)
-(optional) Update-Zip-Packager (not my creation, thank the developer of this batch for his wonderful project
Now, right click on the APK and go to 7-zip --> Open Archive..
A window will appear, where you now maneuver yourself to assets --> images...
Select all of the four google_key_icon_*.png images within that folder, and drag "Copy To" your deskop...
Now, add your special touches to those images
When done, just drag those images back into that same folder you got them from within 7-zip Manager, and you are set
To throw this apk into a flashable zip, i just used Update-Zip-Packager found on XDA... However, you can use ClockWorkRecovery/ADB also... Whatever you want
NOTICE: Backup your old framework-res.apk just in case :3
What You'll Need:
-ADB (or Root Explorer :P)
-Text Editor (on your computer :P)
The button configuration for the Continuum is located at /system/usr/keylayout, and the file name is qwerty.kl
First we need to mount System as RW... To do this, Use ADB, and type "adb shell /system/bin/mount -o remount,rw -t rfs /dev/block/stl9 /system"
Now that it is mounted properly, we have to copy the qwerty.kl to the computer... Type "adb pull /system/usr/keylayout/qwerty.kl"
(Of course you can just use Root Explorer or another such app if you so choose, but that cost money :P this is free
Now, open the file open in your favorite text editor, it doesn't really matter...
Here is a list of the codes and the corresponding button... This is important, because there are more than one buttons labeled as, for example, "Menu":
key 158 = Back
key 139 = Menu
key 217 = Search
key 102 = Home
Make your appropriate changes, and save...
Now you gotta push it back to the phone, which you can either use the Update-Zip-Packager again, or you can just use ADB in CWM
Step 42: Profit
Any modifications that you make yourself, don't be stingy
Share with the community, for everyone to use! Just send me the framework-res.apk and/or qwerty.kl, and i will do the rest :P
Or you could make the zip yourself, that works too
Ticker Clock Colors:
We have managed to figure out how [Thank you Jaizero for helping me with this
] to change the color of the Ticker Clock (and also the date, music info text, etc :P)... If you want to see a certain color, just ask nicely below, providing at the same time the Hex code you would like to see exactly! If you aren't sure how to find the Hex Code of the color you want, just do a google search for, say, "Blue Hex Value" or something along that lines
If you are thankful just hit thanks<3
