[MOD] Greener SystemUI.apk & battery mod / CRT effect for XWKE2/KE7/KF1/KF3/XXKG1/2/6
I made a quick mod to alter some of the icons from SystemUI.apk so that the icons turn green when you're fully connected to Google's network á la nexus phones.
The network data icons were modded using paint.net, and are a bit flat (but they look okay - original icons had 2 tone grey, haven't had time to make it look as pretty as they were
) and the wifi and reception icons are that of stock 2.3
Installation is manual
because we don't have a flash-friendly recovery yet.
You have to rename your chosen file to SytemUI.apk and then push it to /system/app and restart your phone. However, all newer mods will be CWM flashable
I have also modified the framework-res.apk to have the CRT screen off animation.
Above is a pic of how the reception and wifi icons are when fully connected.
Make sure you extract (if compressed) and or rename the files before pushing them.
Guide: If you have an insecure recovery, you can do this as long as you open your command shell where the framework-res.apk file and SystemUI.apk file is.
adb shell stop
adb push framework-res.apk /system/framework/
adb push SystemUI.apk /system/app/
If you do not have a secure recovery, you can paste them over the existing files using Root Explorer, but this is an unsafe method, and might cause your Google Account settings to disappear from Accounts & Sync.
I've also added a circle battery mod with battery percentage & CRT effect.
The icons are gingerbread green from 100-30%, then orange from 29-15 and red from 14-0.
I had a few mods up for KE1, but hardly anyone still uses that FW, and it was pulled. If you're on KDD, I suggest upgrading to KE7
CRT anim is sometimes Garbled. Not sure why it happens, and a fix for it is not currently know.
VillainROM users: Install battery mod or CRT anim via the VillainTweaks app. Don't install this version, it won't work, and you'll get a TON of force closes. Pulser is adding the SystemUI.apk file to VillainTweaks too

XWKF1 Battery Mod and CRT and Greener SystemUI CWM flashable.zip isn't working in CWM, likely because I screwed up the flash script.
You can still push the files manually, and I'll upload a fixed zip later today.
Seems like my zip was corrupt, and ChainFire has posted a fixed version for XWKF1 here
