These will be individual System app Apk's, as I have not found a good way to flash anything with our locked boot loader. This is a work in progress, and I will answer questions, when and if I get the time. It has taken a lot of work to get this theme to where it is today, so please hit the thanks button. Downloads will be in the next post.

Back up every apk that you want to replace by renaming it with a .bak. Place modified apk in the root of /system, and change permissions to rw-r-r and Move it to the app or framework folder. Replacing framework is very dangerous, but I have found that a factory reset will allow you to replace it with the original, if something goes wrong.
I recommend doing this process slowly. start with two apk's, then reboot, check to see if they work. The other way to get framework to work, is to pull a COPY of your original, and inject the images into the res folders. Do not try to extract framework, then repack, it will boot loop.

Use these at your own risk, as I am not responsible for your actions.

Special thanks to BobCatRom in the S4 forums for sharing some of his images.. Click the thanks button over there also

Also, I used some of the framework images from the Cobalt theme, those guys/gals do amazing work. Be sure to thank them also

Remember if the app force closes, rename the corresponding odex file with .bak as well.
Everything is functioning flawlessly on my device!!!

So question. When you say replace with SecContacts and SecPhone - are you telling us to rename the downloaded SecPhone.apk to SecContacts.apk and the downloaded SecContacts.apk to SecPhone.apk? Then switch them out with the files located in the /system/app folder. That's what I am understanding from your post, otherwise it would be completely pointless to put that there. Unless that was a mistake and we just swap out the downloaded files as is with the original /system/app files. Let me know. Thanks for the work, bro.

No, renaming. SecPhone, and SecContacts must be replaced at the same time. That is what I mean.

DO NOT RENAME SYSTEMUI.APK UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO ADD THE NEW THEMED APK.

See drwario's post below on how to handle systemui.apk and the framework-res.apk
This method worked for me with no issues at all! Thanks for your help on this!

Got an easy way to push the SystemUI.apk??

My trick to the systemui.apk is to rename the new apk.1 and change the permissions.

!!!!Gotta be quick but rename the original systemui.apk to .Bak at the end and immediately rename the new systemui.apk
If you don't catch it fast enough all kinds of stuff will start shutting down. You won't be able to open your root explorer at this point so you can't fix what you did. Restart the phone and open the root explorer and go to the system folder to change the new systemui.apk and restart. It'll freeze after EVERY freaking button you push and you'll have to okay whatever the message pops up.
REMEMBER TO ADD .BAK TO ALL THE ORIGINALS.

Also, how did you change the framework.apk without the phone shutting down and closing everything

I read some where one time for framework res apk. That you push it into /system set permissions. Then move it into /system/framework letting overwrite the old one. If you don't go strait into boot loop it worked

Wouldn't let me rename the themed apk since there was already a apk with the name. Renamed the original to .bak and quickly renamed the new one, but everything started closing down. Now I'm bootlooped and a factory reset didn't work. Starting from scratch now.

I don't recommend pushing the framework-res.apk unless you know how to without the phone running I guess. I don't know any other way without being able to flash this stuff. What's your secret Raiderman?

I use this method for all system app changes I make. I think you miss understood me. Place framework res apk in /system first. Not /system/framework. Ste permissions. Then move it into /system/framework folder letting it over write the old one. It should work.

So setting permissions in 'system' will let you move it into 'system/framework' and it overrides the original....damn
I always tried to copy/paste in the system folders but it wouldn't let me cause of same name. Learn something every day! Gonna try now that my phone is back to life.
