HELLO EVERYONE !!!!! Earlier i was using ICS 4.0.4 phone So it was very easy to me and for everyone to change the background of our phone !!! but when i bought a jb 4.2 phone i dont know wat to do
Then After searching and asking to Senior and Reco. Devs and Themers i figure out how to do it !!

I try to find guides on xda but dont find a working one !!

So here i am with my little and easy GUIDE !

You will need:

- apktool
- notepad++
- 7zip
- framework-res.apk from the ROM you're using
-Knowledge of De-compiling and etc @@

1) Install framework-res.apk;

2) Decompile it;

3) Navigate to /framework-res/res/values/ and open styles.xml


Search for:-
<item name="colorBackground">@color/background_dark</item>

and change it with:
<item name="colorBackground">@color/transparent</item>

Search Again -
<item name="windowBackground">@drawable/screen_background_selector_dark</item>
Change it to -
<item name="windowBackground">@drawable/yourbackgroundname</item>
4) Prepare a background (yourbackgroundname.png) and add it to framework-res/res/drawable-nodpi

NOTE;-- your ""backgroundname.png "" can be replaced with your own name or any thing you want just write down your text in <item name="windowBackground">@drawable/hello</item> (FOR exp)
and place a image with name hello in no-dpi location !!!!

5) Recompile back and ... done

THANKS TO - EnricoD !

Enjoy !!!
