I'm trying to do a little theming with the phone dialer & contacts so I thought I'd start out with some easier ones like the dialer & contacts Silhouettes (see screenshots).
BTW, what used to be SecPhone.apk is now system/priv-app/SecTeleservice.apk. The silhouette images are there and I can change them out but there is no change in the dialer and contacts (contacts.apk changed too btw).

Any of you brainy themers out there can help with this one?
Tnx - TD

How to remove Banner from incall screen:
(Examples in attached screenshots 3 & 4)
Change only the values in InCallUI.apk/res/values/colors.xml to match:
Code:
    <color name="incall_call_banner_active_bg">#00000000</color>
    <color name="incall_call_banner_disconnect_bg">#00000000</color>
    <color name="incall_call_banner_incoming_bg">#00000000</color>
    <color name="incall_call_banner_onhold_bg">#00000000</color>
    <color name="incall_call_banner_default_bg">#00000000</color>

Update:
Moderators - I do realize this is a 'question' but please be kind enough to leave this post in Themes & Apps thread as we find a resolution.

Looks good so far! Definitely diggin' the black n blue themed contacts. Would be awesome if you could black out the dialer!

Ahh yes, I'm importing a theme from a Note 3. The image sizes are very similarly sized and I've used this guys work before. It's pretty awesome if I can figure out the file differences. Our 4.4.2 is totally different than the other builds out there.
I think the file we need to deal with is called InCallUI.apk. I side-tracked a little though because I'm trying to repair the InCallUI file so it will fully recompile so I can try removing the call banner because that method is not working an longer either.

Yes I believe you are correct, InCallUI and SecTeleservice are the main APKs for phone/contacts now.

What do you mean by "removing the call banner"?

An example of the call banner is that large green banner at the top of the screenshots I posted for the in-call screen. It changes color depending on the call status but I hate it, want it gone and prefer the full screen display without it. If I get it working, I'll post a screenshot so you can see the difference.

looking right now brotha....On the S4 the Call Banner was in res-Values-Colors.xml and was incall_call_banner_in_call_background...which i always made Transparent

Sammy moved a TON of stuff around and has throw myself oiff a bit too lol.

Im just a little over halfway with my stuff, but still working on the COntacts and Dialer

GImme one sec, lemme see if i can track it down real quick

EDIT....YWait....are talking about the GReen in the SS? or the In cAll banner when your in an actual call? THere is a Banner for "In Call" and "End Call" which is in the Colors XML in the TeleService apk. THat will get rid of the Banner there, which i reall Dislike. If your trying to get rid of that Ugly green, thats an image

I already tried the colors.xml edit in SecTeleService and it did not work so I'm going to give it a shot with InCallUI here in a bit.
