Red face My favorite mods for Stock JB fw and roms ONLY

Here is a couple of flashable zips I put together a couple months back and thought for those of us who still prefer stock, why not share them.. so here we go.......

Please make sure to read the entire op, as I did my best to make it perfectly clear LOL... failure to do so will be obvious by questions you feel the need to ask...

NOTE
These are for stock firmware and roms only. It is also a good idea to be deodexed. They will not work in any CM or KitKat roms as far as I know.
Also, when you install them, they will remove any modifications to status bar and lockscreen that you already have on your phone.

Now having said that:

First is a status bar that is transparent. It also has transparent notification panel (as best as can be with the shadowing that occurs when you pull down your notifications as I have not found a way to change that, yet). It also has lidroid 23 toggles with thanks to the developer of that (please note that the flashlight and reboot options will not work still). It is themed blue with blue quick start buttons for wifi, data, gps etc., and the top panel is a blue also. There are seconds on the centered clock of the status bar and in the notfications panel. The date in the notifications panel is centered also. On the top right of the notifications there are buttons for settings, recent apps, and clear all notifications. Only thing other than notifications is the brightness slider. The font for notifications, and ongoing have been made bold and light in color for easier view in outdoor conditions There are no battery icons on the status bar, so if you want to see your battery level you need to go to settings, then display, and select show battery percentage. Wifi, signal, clock, and battery percentages are white (they will not show with apps that have white statuses on top but for me that is fine). See first 3 screenshots.

download:
23toggles_blue_transparent_Seconds-5.zip

Second will install Ink Effect, 4 way reboot menu, 5 shortcuts on lockscreen option, and transparent status bar on the lock screen. See last 4 screenshots.

download:
Inkeffect-4reboots-5LSshortcuts-TransLS.zip

Make sure when you install via your choice of recovery (CWM or TWRP) to mount your system and preloads before you install. I also strongly suggest you make a complete back up of your phone so if you don't like the changes you can revert back to how your phone was before.


Here are some screenshots of both mods in action on my phone. I have installed these on several versions of firmware, the latest is UBLPK from Argentina and they worked fine. I wouldn't install on any older firmwares before XXLQI. Will cause strange things to happen in your phone when you are asked to select default settings.

The ink effect

Thanks to:
martin_carpio17 for the ink effect
kahvitahra for the 4 reboot menu tutorial
Toni5830 for his guide and porting of wanam's 23 toggles
GerryS2 for the seconds on status bar clock
xperiacle for the transparent status bar on lockscreen

Also to Joehan88, BOOTMGR, KINGbabsula, Koulis2000, shut_down, and R_a_z_v_a_n for their assistance and help in modding things in general. I apologize if I missed anyone else who has helped me with things (do let me know gently in a PM if I forgot you).

DISCLAIMER:
And as usual, I and XDA are in no way responsible for your phone breaking, bricking, or running away with an Iphone (to quote Shaftamle: Friends don't let friends buy an Iphone lol). You and only you choose to install at your own risk (although there isn't much risk involved).

and Please Take Note:
I will NOT take any requests to change anything in these nor will I respond to support via PM. You take them as they are. They are the final versions and I am most happy with them on my phone and hope you will be too. Enjoy

Oh, Last but not Least:
If you incorporate these into your stock rom, please pm me and also give credit with link to this thread. Thanks in advance...

I made it this way for better visibilty outdoors specially with my old eyes LOL.

edit: here is how to do it, I posted how a while back: GoHere. Change font style from bold to normal for thin fonts if you wish it that way.

Sorry but you'll have to find a tutorial on your own. As stated in the op, this comes as is, if you want to modify, you are on your own.
