Make sure you enable the app_process from within Xposed Installer and reboot
Install attached apk, just like you would any other apk
Enable module in Xposed Installer, pick which settings you want, and either reboot, or restart the shell (adb shell 'stop;start' or Soft reboot)
Enjoy the purdy icons
(Optional) Download & import other iconpacks if you'd like. Or create one yourself and share it with others!
IMPORTANT UPDATE - PLEASE READ
Due to the unscrupulous actions by a certain individual, I have been forced to change the package name of my module from com.dr8.sbicons. If you want to read more on the motivation behind this change, you can read the thread here. All versions >2.1.6 will require a full UNINSTALL of the previous version prior to installation of the new version. Also, as part of this change, I have separated the different variants of the module into separate package names, to further differentiate them. The end result of this fiasco is that the modules will be available on the Play Store, as donation-ware. This will not affect current or future users of the free module, which will continue to be free and available on this post, as well as in the official Xposed module repository. Play Store links can be found near the end of this post. If you have inadvertently purchased the unofficial (read: stolen) module from the Play Store from Star Fox Apps, you should demand a refund and/or report this developer to Google.
Added white 4G/LTE with Orange data icons per request.
Updated to (hopefully) work on Note 2 -- Multi-device support within a single apk is too much stuff. Will split out the Samsung stuff to a separate mod in the near future
Added test version that should work with ViperOne theme engine -- Not working currently. I'll work on ViperOne theme compatibility later
Split out E/H/LTE icons -- EDGE will show E, UMTS, HSPA will show H, and LTE will show 4G LTE -- Caused issues with icon-flipping. Only has E, 4G, and 4G LTE icons now. -- Fixed in later version
[1.18] Added transparent e911 icon for Verizon SGS3
[1.19] Consolidated mods into a single apk with preference option for mobile data icon color -- Orange data icons only work with AT&T iconset, and not with auto-hide setting
[1.20] Fixed 1px-wide line below transparent statusbar
[1.20] Re-split out G/E/3G/H/H+/LTE for International users with curved mobile data indicators
[1.21] Added option to remove clock from statusbar
[1.22] Added iconset preference in settings. Now switch between AT&T, T-Mobile and International data icons without any CID changes!
[1.23] Added iconset for alternate Wifi and Battery courtesy of jonata
[1.24] Fixed preference setting for alternate cell signal icons
[1.25] Added circle battery and fixed 4G connected icon
[1.25a] Reorganized preference screens
[1.26] Added preference setting for International data icon indicators (arrows or curved)
[1.28a] Added T-Mobile as an option for data icons, along with pink-themed indicators
[1.30b] Added cyan themed mute, speakerphone, and voicemail icons
[1.33] Added option (under Tweaks) to auto-hide data icons if using the AT&T cyan iconset
[1.33c] Fixed curved/arrows option when using the orange iconset
[1.34] Fixed missing 4g connected icons. From this version on, mod only supports HTC One. A separate Samsung version soon.
[1.35] Added option to remove battery & charging icons. Leaves a gap between clock and signal bars though. Here's an example with the clock and battery removed and stock % enabled
[1.37] Proper battery icon removal option now. Also added ability to pick colors for stock 4.2.2 text battery percentage and clock. Both default to holo blue (0xff35b5e5). See example:
[1.39] Implemented an option to colorize the stock 4.2.2 text battery percentage based on charge level (suggested colors and ranges thanks to @jonata).
[1.4.2] Lots of changes to cover...switching to an indented format for each new release
Versioning change. Now using major.minor.release format
Added option to colorize battery icons! This works great with the circle battery set
Removed text-based battery icon set. No longer needed with the addition of colorized stock text battery
Changed all circle battery icons so that they look better when using the colorize option
Color picker for each battery charge range so you can decide how it looks! Applies to both text and icon batteries.
Reorganized preference screens.
Added transparent statusbar style options
Added color hex input field to colorpickers
Added alpha slider to colorpickers, and fixed hex input field accordingly
Added option to override notification pulldown background color & transparency.
Added Sense nav bar transparency option. Still doesn't work on the Blinkfeed page for some reason.
Haven't addressed transparent statusbar for Sense yet, but will work it into a release soon.
Added the highly desired center clock setting, courtesy of C3C076, maker of GravityBox xposed mod for the MTK6589.
This will be the last release in the 1.x series of this mod
It's finally here! Make sure you uninstall all previous versions first!
The latest version of the mod now includes only a single icon set (WhiteIcons thanks to @snachez). The main difference is that other iconpacks can be made and imported. A few examples have been added to the XSBM Iconpack thread
Iconpacks should be placed into /sdcard/xsbm, and then imported via the mod settings -> Icons -> Select Iconpack to Import (reboot/soft reboot to apply)
All options are set to off (false) by default, with the exception of auto-hiding the data icons while connected to wifi. Applies only to AT&T phones, or phones with a CID of CWS__001 or SKU == 7. All other models auto-hide mobile data by default when on wifi.
Added option to hide AM/PM from clock
Added options to hide "no SIM" and phone signal strength icons
Has ability to replace notification icons per-app. This feature is experimental, and not guaranteed to work for all apps. More details on this to follow.
It can show you data icons for all individual data types (G/E/3G/H/4G/LTE). If you don't like this behavior (some carriers like AT&T flip between bands so often it makes the icons flip constantly), you can take the images from one band folder (e.g. 4G) and copy them to other folders (3G/H), renaming the files to match the destination filenames. More details on this and the rest of the iconpack layout to follow.
Changed charging animation so it doesn't show battery percentage during animation
Fixed the default_iconpack.zip so H and 4G icons are different
Added option to restart SystemUI to apply changes (requires superuser) (Thanks serajr!)
Added roaming icons support (I have no way of testing this; roaming users please let me know if it works)
Updated included default_iconpack.zip (thanks @snachez)
Changed battery icon code to hopefully address OneX compatibility
Added option to battery tweaks to enable the showing of battery percentage during battery charging animation (2.0.4)
Added intent filter to handle *.xsbm.zip files -- packs that are named this way can be imported from any file manager (open with XSBM)
Create the .nomedia file in the unpacked zip directory to prevent media scanner from seeing iconpack images
Set restart dialog to not cancelable. Use the Cancel button instead of Back.
Added preference under Icon Settings to support alternate SystemUI that don't have the Htc-named classes (e.g. One X, some One roms based on 4.1.x, etc)
Added auto-updater to mod (requires Internet, Wifi_State, Network_State permissions)
Did testing on HTC One X and resolved mobile data option (still need to pick the Alternate SystemUI option, and uncheck the Auto-Hide option)
Still having issues with Apply Changes option if the transparent notification window option is enabled
Apply Changes option now moved to app exit (using Back key). Should no longer cause FC on SystemUI (reboot once after installing 2.0.8 before trying)
Added Icon Colors preference screen that allows you to set your own icon colors. Works best with white or light-colored icons.
Battery icon color is still located under Battery Tweaks
Perform a reboot after upgrading before using the Apply Changes
Updated default_iconpack.xsbm.zip included with mod
Color picker text entry will now update new color selection box if hex value is a valid color
Changed entire application theme to Holo
Updated preferences to look cleaner and make more sense
Upon very first installation of mod it will automatically import the default iconpack so new users have fewer issues
You may need to fully uninstall all versions of the mod prior to this (and future) versions working
Tested on the latest 4.3 Sense rom (MaximusHD 12.1.0) and everything appears to be working fine
Added value slider to preferences for battery charge animation frame duration
Added option to have 1px divider line on Sense nav bar background
Apply Changes now restarts SystemUI and Prism
Updated Sense navbar 1px image
Added preliminary support for statusbar color. Works for non-Prism launchers, not for Sense just yet.
Added option to change text battery % color during charging
Removed updater code, now using repo.xposed.info for all app updates
Fixed auto-hide data icon option when in unchecked state
Package name changed from com.dr8.sbicons to com.dr8.sbicons.sense - you must uninstall the previous version before installing this version!
Updated for Sense 5.5 ROMs
Fixed option to hide signal icons
Fixed status bar transparency in Sense launcher if option selected
Added logic to determine which icons are available to replace based on Sense version (5 vs 5.5)
Added iconpack auto-scaling. Icons should all be made at least 75x75px, which will make them appear without degradation in lower resolution devices (One XL, One S, One VX, etc)
Added ability to set the scale on statusbar icons -- set the scale first, then import/reimport your chosen iconpack
Added Sprint HTC One support. Thanks to @mikevillarroel for testing/debugging help! Make sure you pick Sprint from the Carrier Selection.
Iconpacks for Sprint devices will need additional data icons for evdo/1xRTT and additional signal icons for the 6-bar signal. See 2nd post in this thread for more info
Removed 3 permissions relating to network activity. No longer needed, since app is updated via Xposed Repo or Play Store.
Updated to support KK 4.4 w/ Sense 5.5 - tested on ARHD 40.3
Updated Italian translation - thx @jonata
Added Malay translation - thx @saxmydix
Added new preference screen under Icon Settings->Hidden Icons Settings; can hide Silent/Vibrate, Beats, Headphones now (and moved no-SIM and Signal bars here too) - big thx to @rovo89 for the code help
Added progress dialog to iconpack import activity
Initial release for GPE roms (tested on ARGE 3.0)
Package name changed from com.dr8.sbicons to com.dr8.sbicons.ge - you must uninstall previous version prior to installation!
Fixed preference for statusbar transparency color picker
Added French translation from @alex67890, Italian translation from @jonata (some strings may still need translating)
Ability to remove certain statusbar icons (headset, Beats, etc) -- Still working on this -- Done
Look into setting notification icon limits to prevent obscuring center clock -- langer hans has donated code for this. Thanks!
The iconpack structure is a simple ZIP file with a specific set of subfolders, and a hidden identifier text file. Below is the file list of the default_iconpack.zip, separated by section/subfolder. If you are building a pack or replacing images within an existing pack, remember to maintain the exact filenames as shown, case-sensitive (i.e. all lowercase):
Notes: The .xsbmpack is a plain text file that can contain the following fields:
author: name/nick/ID of pack creator or icon creator
note: a short description about the pack (what kind of battery icons, etc). This should be on a single line.
Both fields should be terminated by a single line-feed (Enter)
If this file does not exist within the iconpack zipfile, it will not be imported by the mod. The location of this file within the zip should be at the highest (root) level, not a subfolder. And the name is not a typo; it should be preceded by a period (makes this a hidden file in Linux/Android).
Notes: This is the experimental support for per-app notification icon replacements. It consists of an apps.txt file located at the highest (root) level of the zipfile, and contains the following info in a specific format:
Where packagename is the APK package name of the application in the Java namespace format. This is usually something like com.author.appname. To determine what the packagename of an APK is, you can use the following command on the phone (via terminal emulator or via adb shell):
pm list packages -f | grep -i appname
An example would be the Gmail new mail notification. To find the packagename, we could enter this vi adb shell:
pm list packages -f | grep -i Gmail
This might return someting similar to:
The part after the equals sign would be your package name. Another method of finding this data is through the Play Store. If you search for an app, say Gmail, the URL will show the package name as well.
Once you have the packagename, you have to determine what the name of the notification icon is. The easiest way to do this is to use a zip utility (WinZip, 7zip, RAR, etc) to extract the icons in the res/drawable-*/ directories within the app's APK. Most of the time the filenames start with stat_ or contain the word notify, but that isn't always the case.
If you find the file you're hoping to replace, rename it to the above format. Add the entry into the apps.txt file, and place both files into the iconpack zip. The apps.txt goes to the top level of the zip, and the image itself goes to the apps/ subfolder.
The mod supports replacing multiple images from a single package using the same naming convention above.
Because this functionality is experimental, it may not work for every application. Not all apps request notification icon resources in the same manner, so there's no guarantee it will work.
Notes: The framework files go in the framework/ subfolder of the iconpack zip, and contain both resources that are normally located in framework-res.apk and also within framework-htc-res.apk. Not all of the stock framework images are replaced by the mod. For now, it's just the ones in the list above. More may be added to this list at a later date.
Notes: The mobile data icons are separated out into subfolders beneath the top mobile/ subfolder, based on the band or network type. If the images found within these subfolders are all different, which is the case with the included default_iconpack.zip, then you will see different data icons depending on what network type your phone is using at that given moment. This sometimes results in "icon flipping", which is when you see different network icons in succession (3G->H->4G->3G). This is normal behavior on most International phones, but not on AT&T and T-Mobile devices. These carriers utilize only 3 or 4 different data icons, for all of the network types. This gives the illusion that your phone is always connected to a fast data network, when it could in reality be connected via a slower technology. But a positive side-effect of this is that the data icons rarely "flip".
If you'd like to restore the "stock" AT&T or T-Mobile behavior, and only see 3-4 network types, such as E, 4G, and 4G-LTE, you can do this by copying one set of network type icons over another, making sure you rename the files accordingly. An example is below:
Say you only want see the 4G icon when you're connected via 3G, H, or 4G. You can do this by copying these files:
I'll see about relocating the clock and add it as an option.
I don't think this is something I can tackle as part of this mod. It involves replacing the whole status bar layout, and according to rovo89's docs on the Xposed framework, isn't something that is recommended:
Although you could theoretically replace layouts completely with the technique described above, this has many downsides. You have to copy the complete layout from the original, which reduces compatibility with other ROMs. Themes might be lost. Only one module can replace a layout. If two modules try it, the last one will win. Most important, IDs and references to other resources are pretty hard to define. Therefore, I really don't recommend this.
