Default [GUIDE] How to make a Floating Statusbar Like a Phablet/Tablet For Galaxy Y

Hi SGY mates I just want to share this guide of How to make a Floating Statusbar Like a Phablet/Tablet For Galaxy Y

Original Thread

Quote:
Hello, i just try to make my phone like a phablet/tablet with 4.0.4 or 4.1.2 android os last time, but i don't know i can make it a simple or not.

But now i can make it a "pop up manipulation" with some background manipulation too. So, here we go the tutorial will start now!



The first of this tutorial you must know about :

1. How to decompile/compile the apk file (don't ask here, you can search on google how to do that)

2. How to coding a xml file with some code

3. You must have a Apktool/ApkManager/ToolAlite by KuyaGaol

4. You must have a JDK and Latest Net framework for run Apktool/ApkManager/ToolAlite by KuyaGaol

5. You must take a beer! lol



Oke the first method is :

1. Download my Floating.zip

2. Pull the Framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk

3. Do "if framework" on your Apktool/ApkManager/ToolAlite by KuyaGaol

4. Decompile SystemUI.apk

5. Extract my Floating.zip to your drawable directory. (you can extract on "drawable" or "drawable-mdpi" folder).

6. Open status_bar.xml from /res/layout/here and find this code, modify and save :

Code:
<com.android.systemui.statusbar.DateView android:textAppearance="@android:style/TextAppearance.StatusBar.Icon"
and add this line code :

Code:
android:background="@drawable/trans"
or paste my line :

Code:
<com.android.systemui.statusbar.DateView android:textAppearance="@android:style/TextAppearance.StatusBar.Icon" android:textColor="#00000000" android:gravity="center" android:id="@id/date" android:background="@drawable/trans" android:paddingLeft="6.0px" android:paddingRight="6.0px" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:singleLine="true" />
7. Open status_bar_expanded.xml from /res/layout/here and find this code, modify and save :

Code:
<com.android.systemui.statusbar.ExpandedView android:orientation="vertical"
and add this line code :

Code:
android:background="@drawable/bg"
or paste my line :

Code:
<com.android.systemui.statusbar.ExpandedView android:orientation="vertical" android:background="@drawable/bg" android:focusable="true" android:descendantFocusability="afterDescendants"
8. Open status_bar_tracking.xml from /res/layout/here and find this code. modify and save :

Code:
<View android:background="@drawable/shade_bg" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_weight="1.0" />
and change to this line :

Code:
<View android:background="@drawable/shade_bg" android:layout_width="0.0px" android:layout_height="0.0px" android:layout_weight="1.0" />
Find this line :

Code:
<ImageView android:layout_gravity="bottom" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:src="@drawable/status_bar_close_on" android:scaleType="fitXY" />
and change to this line :

Code:
<ImageView android:layout_gravity="bottom" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:src="@drawable/trans" android:scaleType="fitXY" />
9. Recompile your SystemUI.apk project and push it to your phone to the /system/app directory
