Default [MOD][VRBLI5/J1/K1/K3][AROMA] Kinda Crap Mods 2.6 (Updated 12/8/2012)

Requirements
These mods are intended for a rooted Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III SCH-I535 running a TouchWiz-based rom.

At least 100mb of free space on the phone's internal storage is required for backup and temporary installation files.

As of Version 1.4, all versions of TWRP are not recommended for installing these mods. TWRP does not properly run the installation scripts which can result in boot loops, force closes, and/or bad backup files. This post will be updated when a reliable version of TWRP is released.

As of Version 2.0, these mods are made for Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and no longer support ICS.

Version 2.6 has been tested on stock rooted odexed & deodexed VRBLK3 roms using CWM Touch 6.0.1.2. I have also verified compatibility with the following roms:
  • CleanROM 5.0 (Deodexed VRBLK1)
  • CleanROM Lite Edition 4.0 (Deodexed VRBLK1)
  • JellyWiz RLS 13 (Deodexed VRBLJ1)
  • Galaxy MOD RLS9 (Deodexed VRBLK1)
  • Jelly 'Beans' Build 5 (Deodexed VRBLK1)
  • TaStEoFbEaNs 4.0 (Deodexed VRBLK3)
  • SynergyROM Revision 125 (Deodexed VRBLI5)
When prompted by the installer to select the build being used, choose the build of the rom and not the baseband if they are different.

What's New
2.6 Updated 12/8/2012
  • Added support for leaked build VRBLK3
  • Updated Lidroid Extended Quick Setting Toggles with additional toggles for Android Beam, Blocking Mode, Driving Mode, Lock Device, Multi Window, Power Saving, S Beam, and Smart Stay. This was made for Android 4.1.2 so not all toggles are functional, ie. the Multi Window toggle works but does nothing, the S Beam toggle doesn't work, the Screen Brightness toggle can't switch between Auto and Manual, etc. Use the new Lidroid Settings app to configure the toggles. Credit goes to lidroid for the update and wanam for porting it for Samsung Jelly Bean roms.
  • Modified images, texts, and layouts of Lidroid Toggles and Settings. New toggle icons were redrawn from stock Touchwiz 4.1.2 images or remade. Changed existing icons for Lockscreen and Mobile Hotspot.
 
2.5 Updated 12/3/2012
  • Added Black Quick Setting Toggle Background
  • Changed Quick Setting Toggle Off Icons and Expanded Status Bar Close Handles for Black Quick Setting Toggle Background
  • Added Expanded Status Bar Notification Item Backgrounds (Touchwiz Black or Android 4.2 Gray)
  • Added Expanded Status Bar Notification Item Background Transparencies (0%, 12%, 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%)
2.4 Updated 11/22/2012
  • Added support for leaked build VRBLK1
  • Added option for No Status Bar Clock
  • Added option for Android 4.2 Expanded Status Bar Layout Style

  • Added Long Press Back Button to Kill App Mod. Credit goes to sorg and d8389.
  • Removed Lockscreen Lock Icon
  • Reduced long press delays for power, menu, & back buttons to 250ms
  • Enabled double press home button assignment. Requires "Open via the home key" option under S Voice settings to function.
  • Added Lockscreen Home Button Flashlight Mod. This will install the Kinda Crap HTC Flashlight which is based on the Nexus One Torch by Ben Buxton. Credit goes to Ben Buxton for allowing me to modify his torch app for these mods, the MIUI Team for the original lockscreen torch feature, and kahvitahra & sbrissen for the original smali code I modified to get this working in JB.

I'm thinking every time I view this thread that you've successfully redirected the xml for statusbar_background to a png, lol. Maybe I'm missing something but statusbar_background is where the battery is located but in your screen shot it doesn't appear to be modified.

Good bye HTC Rezound, hello Galaxy S3!

Aroma installer works great. Completely happy with this mod as is but if you're thinking about any additional features, would it be possible to add an option to remove the clock from the status bar? Again thanks for the hard work for those of us still running odex TW.
