Default [MOD][VZW] Black Status Bar and Nav Bar + Recents key + more

This mod is no longer maintained as it does not work for the latest VZW OTA Build VS98012B. Look here for a better alternative.

 




Requirements:
  • VZW LG G2 - Stock (VS98010B/VS98011A)
  • Root
  • Recovery (TWRP)
Installation Instructions:
  1. Download the file
  2. Reboot to Recovery (via Goo Manager)
  3. Install zip
  4. Reboot
  5. Go to Settings>Display>Front touch buttons, and select the theme Black Gradation.

To revert back to stock, download and install RevertRecentKeyMod.zip from sefnap's thread.

Downloads
- Mod
- Mod + Menu Ellipsis
- Mod + No Icons
- Mod + No Icons + Menu Ellipsis

No Icons: removes E911 icon, headphone icon, and hides 4g icon when wifi is connected.

Thanks:
Only want a black status bar? Check out my black status bar only mod.

Any chance of getting this without the recents/menu change?

And can the position be changed? ie menu home back
LG G2 (VS980) - running some version of CM11 or AOKP or Gummy

This also works with the smaller nav bar mod! Great stuff!

No. I just tested it. The buttons will switch positions but the recent app key does nothing. Seems to only work if the recent apps is in the third position.

You can get the mod without the recents/menu change here. The button position can be changed in the settings (only for the mod without the button change).

FYI this mod works in conjunction with the shrinking navbar mod. I'm using the smallest navbar, with the black mod without location icon. looks great.

Thanks for the heads up. Would you or anyone know if this will work with CleanROM?

Yes it works with clean Ron


Could we get a mod to hide the status bar altogether?

Any way to make recents a long press for search, and back button long press to kill current app?
