Another easy mod for you guys.

This is only for Verizon Stock with root injected

4.1.1
Build: JRO03C.I605VRALJB

Steps:
1) Please mount your system as read/write, extract the files in the attached zip file, and copy:

SystemUI.apk to /system/app

Make sure you are actually replacing the old file and not renaming it

2) Then reboot.

I included the original SystemUI.apk in the zip as a backup just in case.





Other Customized Versions:
  • Wi-Fi toggle, removed eGPS icon, and removed alarm icon
    From sleevasteve - here is a dropbox link. Includes Wi-Fi toggle, removed eGPS icon, and removed alarm icon(will be a blank spot visible if you have silent/vibrate on, as well as an alarm enabled).

  • Wi-Fi toggle, black status bar
    see attachment


  • Wi-Fi toggle, black status bar, stripped version
    From sleevasteve - Here is a stripped version of the SystemUI.apk. Includes: Wi-Fi toggle, black status bar. Removed Icons: eGPS, Alarm, Battery, Bluetooth, Silent and Vibrate. I removed the battery icon, but you can enable battery % under display. And removing the Bluetooth, silent and vibrate indicators not only cleaned it up, but now you don't see a gap where the alarm icon was, when going into those modes. Tried to get rid of the ime indicator/switcher, but there must be another one hiding in there somewhere.

    ***Be sure to REMOVE the word "Stripped" from the file name, before pushing to system/app! The file name should just read: SystemUI.apk (sorry for the inconvenience, had to differentiate them on my phone, and on dropbox)

  • Black Status Bar, Wifi Toggle and eGPS(removed)
    from *madmoose* - Black Status Bar, Wifi Toggle and eGPS(removed)

My question is why wasn't this included to begin with...? What was Samsung thinking?!

I'm not sure... although I think Verizon has more to do with the features missing than Samsung.

Works perfect thanks!

BTW in the Note 2 general forum, someone else is modifying system ui to take out the eGPS icon and battery icon. Would be cool to see you guys combine these so we can have both

Many many thanks to you my friend!

Thumbs up
hairdewx, first thank you for your work and now I would like to know if you could make SystemUI with a black background on the top, if possible.
Thank you again for your hard work

I think the stock SystemUI is dark gray original color, it would be nice if it was black. Thanks for replaying back.
