[GUIDE]Hide page indicator in Home app [4.0.2.A.368]
In this guide I will show you how to show or hide the page indicator in the Home app
First of all, you'll need Apk Manager, this can be downloaded here
Extract the zip to a folder you like, I'll use C:\Apk Manager\
in this guide!
Download Default Home. [4.0.A.2.368].rar from this post. (Should work on .145 fw too!)
Copy the Home.apk to C:\Apk Manager\place-apk-here-for-modding\
After you've done that, open Script.bat.
Select option 9.
Now the Home.apk will be decompiled.
When it's done decompiling, go here C:\Apk Manager\projects\Home.apk\res\values
Open bools.xml with Notepad and go to line 3. Will look like this:
When you change "false" to "true", the desktop indicator will be hidden after a few seconds.
Now go to line 4.
Change "false" to "true" if you like to hide the indicator on the app tray.
Save and close the file. Now go back to the Apk Manager tool and select option 11, the apk will now be compiled again. It will ask you this:
Is this a system apk (y/n)
Answer with y and press enter.
After that you'll get another question:
Aside from the signatures, would you like to copy
over any additional files that you didn't modify
from the original apk in order to ensure least
# of errors (y/n)
Answer with y again.
Now this will show up:
In the apk manager folder u'll find
a keep folder. Within it, delete
everything you have modified and leave
files that you haven't. If you have modified
any xml, then delete resources.arsc from that
folder as well. Once done then press enter
on this script.
Go here C:\Apk Manager\keep
and delete resources.arsc
Now go back to the Apk Manager tool and press enter.
In C:\Apk Manager\place-apk-here-for-modding
you'll find this: unsignedHome.apk
. Rename it to Home.apk and push it to your device with adb.
adb push Home.apk /sdcard/
#mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock0 /system
#busybox cp -R /sdcard/Home.apk /system/app/
Now the indicators will hide after a few seconds
