Dear friends,
A few days before I came across something amazing (see Title ) and I decided to try it on our phone. It worked but had some major issues with Phone like No SMS, No Data, etc. This thing attracted me so much that I have spent last few days to find that perfect thing for our phone. I tried to edit it myself but just like before I kept failing at decompiling and especially recompiling apks
Anyways today I have found and gathered almost Perfect solution (after numerous failed attempts for our phones) with almost everything working except one.
I will let the pictures do the talking. Its pure awesome






So.....liked it Well I very much did

Whats working :
Data
SMS
Play Store
Dialer (it does not crash)
Full UI

Whats new :
New Gmail
New GTalk
New Email
All apps which have TabletUI will load into that like TweetCaster
Overall its entirely different experience.

What's not working :
This

Now I know that we are very close and it needs just very simple change somewhere in Phone.apk to enable Voice Calling but I am dumb enough not to know that
May be experienced (in xml editing especially) Devs like Frankstein, UT36104, Lolation, Fuss and others could solve it in no time and give us perfectly working Phone.apk

How to install :
1. TAKE A BACKUP
2. Reboot into Recovery
3. Flash the zip
4. Clear Cache and Dalvik Cache (under Advanced)
5. Reboot
6. Change LCD density to 128 (last option in LCD Density screen. Select Custom in the end of the list)
7. Reboot
8. Wait for few minutes after boot
9. Set Font Size to HUGE.
10. Now clear Market data (System Settings>Apps>All>Google Play Store>Clear Data)
11. Smile

Also attached is the Restore (CWM Flashable) zip by our dear Frankstein to restore back to Normal(Phone) Mode. Dont forget to change LCD Density to 240 after flashing Restore zip. Dont forget to say THANKS to Frankstein here

What next :
If people contribute (since I am worse than a kid when coding, etc comes) we can fine tune it a lot and make it look more comfortable and extremely beautiful. Its already usable for me
What we can do
1. Increase the size of Navigation Bar
2. Remove padding in App Drawer (its cut-off from sides)
3. Increase font size slightly
And much more........

Full credit goes to Xylograph and another unknown Dev. Respect and Thank to you !

Hope it is good

EDIT: Didn't work for me man, I applied it from recovery, wipe cache but nothing

@shail
You are so kind with your words
I just try to contribute little with my near to non-existent knowledge.
Regarding your queries
After flashing you shall have only Tablet mode but very easy to restore.
Tablet Mode will work in both Landscape and Portrait work just like normal phone.
Use it for some time and you will love it especially new apps

@Frankstein
Thank you so much bro !
I forgot to upload Restore zip and you just supported me so quick. Thanks
Frank, please solve this problem. Have a look into Phone.apk and enable Voice calls. Should not take you much time
Adding your zip to First post with Credit to you
