Hello:

In this thread I will try to accomodate the MODs (and if possible apps) shared in MagMa-NX thread by me or by other users (with their consent). Original ROM thread page located here developed by Patrick.H

I will try to make the OP if this thread as much organized as possible. Please give me time to make it up (busy schedule, very sorry).

Edit: Updated OP


Some quick explanations before going into mods:
Flashable zip --> A zip that is flashed in recovery (you can also use in-app flasher of DualBootPatcher app if you are booted to other ROM). There is NO restriction of TWPR version for usage of TWRP2.8.7.0 only. You can use latest TWRP3.x too for these zips.
VRTheme Flashable zip --> A zip that is flashed in recovery (you can also use in-app flasher of DualBootPatcher app if you are booted to other ROM - though I havent tried that). There is no restriction for usage of TWRP2.8.7.0. You can use latest TWRP3.x too for these zips. It changes only a part of apk. Not whole apk.
Aroma-flashable zip --> A zip that can ONLY be flashed in recovery. There is a restriction on TWRP version, you have to use only TWRP2.8.7.0. That is valid until lss1977 finishes his work on making aroma installer working on TWRP3

Here, I will list the post numbers and to which MOD/MOD group they are referred to.

Aroma-flashable MagMa-NX MOD for C5/N7 Smart Manager

I present you a modified version of Smart Manager MOD previously shared by karkasss. This one includes only C5 and N7 smart managers and excluded UDS from aroma.
Please read the aroma screen after successful flashing. I will copy the text here too:

Code:
CAUTION!!!

Use correct SystemUI for selected SM or else you
will not be able to tweak powersaving from quicksettings

In case you do not have correct systemUI,
you will have to toggle it from Smart Manager itself
or by clicking on 'more settings' from quicksettings

Please read this notice and don't write a bug report
saying that you cannot toggle it from quicksettings

And also, I could not change the donation email
to the newest one. It should be nxteamsv@gmail.com
:))
Basically, power saving toggle is main reason of having a different UI for C5 SM. I haven't tried an in-depth testing of N7 UI with C5 SM, but the difference you will have is, instead of being able to toggle power saving directly from quick setting toggle:
a. You will need to go to Smart Manager app, click on battery and then to power saving
or
b. Click on text of quick settings, then click on more settings, then click on power saving (explained in screenshots)

I will share the modified UI for Separated Notification UI, but for rest of them, I couldn't yet build a working UI. The difference between early and new UI and changes in smali stuff block me from producing a functioning UI for C5 SM. Unfortunately smali coding is not my best suit, so I refrain to edit them. Thus, for users on other UI:
- If you want to have C5 SM you can have it, just keep in mind the text above.

I repeat, Smart Manager MOD zip is INDEPENDENT OF SYSTEM UI

Separated Noti UI MOD for MagMa NX UX8.5


Hello;

I am presenting you 3 MODs on Sep.Noti. UI on UX8.5
a. Stock Sep.Noti. UI with C5 SM
b. Even More Modified Sep.Noti. UI with N7 SM
c. Even More Modified Sep.Noti. UI with C5 SM

As I have explained on Smart Manager MOD post, power saving toggle is the main reason for having a different UI for C5 SM.

The modifications are same as previous even more modified UI:
- Added 6x3 and 9x2 toggles for portrait and landscape, respectively
- Removed Toggle text arrow for symmetric look (nougat also doesn't have that arrow)
- Minimized free space between toggles
- Removed lines between toggles and toggle names

"Stock UI with C5 SM" has same stock look, but it is also usable for tweaking power saving directly from quick toggles.

G-Drive Link for Stock Sep.Noti. UI with C5 SM

Even More Modified MagMa NX UX8 SystemUI with Separated Notifications N7 SM


- Minimized toggle icon sizes
- Minimized distance between toggle icons and toggle texts
- Removed "^" arrow near toggle text to make toggle texts to be completely symmetrical with respect to toggle icon

Download SystemUI

MD5: 9b29eab3d29897f92a55b8ae18918a5c

Please share what you think about this design for future development of UI. And also please report back if any issue would happen due to this SystemUI. I will check it as soon as I can.


3.
Modified System UI for MagMa NX UX7 for C5 with Separated Notifications

- Added 9 toggles to landscape (to have aligned toggles w.r.t. 6x3 in portrait)
- Removed line between toggles and toggle names
- Removed SFinder Bar and Shortcut Icon
- Fixed Large Content scaling alignment issue

Brightness on first slide had a glitch that removed toggle names of last line of icons in expanded QS, I will try to find a way. That is why it was not included in here

Download flashable zip for modified UI ver1.0 here

Nougat System UI ver5


Here, I tried to combine all nougat system UI into one flashable zip file with Aroma installer. The screen looks like this (sorry for bad quality photo, I took it with webcam):

- First column is choice of "Note7 device maintenance" vs "C5 Smart manager"
- Second column is choice of "with brightness bar" or "no brightness bar"
- Third column is choice of "5 Toggles per row" or "6 Toggles per row" in notification panel/quick toggles.

Please choose wisely with respect to which smart manager/device maintenance you have. If you want to change the smart manager, you need to flash ROM in mods update mode and make you choice there. After that you can flash this zip and make your selection according to your current smart manager/device maintenance choice.

File size is over 130MB, so I am presenting both G-Drive and MEGA download links with MD5


Download:
Google Drive
Mega Link
MD5:d00361defc46f45d006cebaef6c1a3bd

Update:
Version UX8 of this ROM is changing system ui. You need to wait for an update of system ui mods after UX8 will be shared.

Thanks to
karkasss
For his help and assitance throughout this work and everywhere in thread. Without you I couldn't have done it
oidy
For his 6Toggles idea and files

Please check it and report back.

Disable Hardware Back and Recents key for Full S8-like UI with Navbar


Caution: Use this ONLY if you have Navbar enabled! For enabling NavBar, read this

Works independent of SystemUI

This mod will remove the functions of hardware buttons from back and recents key on left and right side of home button. I will make one more mod to remove home button function, but I discaurage using it, since home button is not that easy to slip and press. So, I advise to let it stay working.

Recents + Back Button Remove Mod
Recents + Back + Home Button Remove Mod
Enable all HW keys again

You can also do it manually by editing system/usr/keylayout/generic.kl file. You need to add "#" in front of key 158 and key 139 for removing back and recents keys. For home button, you need to do same for key 172.

PLEASE Report back afterwards

3.
Center Clock MOD for MagMa NX


Hello.
Here I share a vrtheme MOD for center clock using this guide thanks to Dejan Sathanas who showed me the post and karkasss who helped me debug some issues.

There are in total 6 MOD zips. 2 for separated notification (one MOD zip and one stock zip), 2 for grouped notification with hidden buttons UI (again, one MOD zip and one stock zip) and lastly 2 for s8 UI (both 5toggles and 6toggles) + grouped UI (one MOD zip and one stock zip).

Caution:Please have a flashable zip for your systemUI or at least have the ROM.zip in your sdcard so that you can do a mods update if anything will go wrong.

Flashable Zips for Bluelight Filter ver1 and ver2 for MagMa NX


Flashable zip for reverting back to blueligh ver1 was introduced by karkasss here. I also provide an extra flashable zip for bluelight ver2, whose files were extracted from Fougat ROM by Beesvee here.

Caution 1: Please wait for some time for bluelight to kick in. It may take up to 5-15 minutes after first boot. Please don't report back saying bluelight filter doesn't work without waiting enough time

Caution 2: Bluelight filter ver1 and ver2 have different filters as default, where ver1 has bluelight filter with brightness loss (when you increase bluelight filter intensity, loss of blue light is accompanied by loss of brightness of screen), whereas ver2 has blueligh filter without brightness loss. It is tweakable by changing filter.cfg. I can provide a flashable file for such filter.cfg if requested.

In this post you will find all up-to-date info about how to pass safetynet using Magisk. The detailed answer has been provided for many versions of MagMa-NX ROM, including latest version. You will also find a flashable zip for correction of build.prop in the attachment of that post for N9005 users. Please read post in depth to not do everything again. The procedure was used by many users of MagMa-NX ROM and was approved to be working.

Thank you cafe-creme for your awesome contribution

Here, you will find an ODIN-flashable PIT file that can be used to increase /system partition space for extra 400MB (from 2300MB to 2700MB) by decreasing usable space in sdcard by 400MB. This is practical when you have a ROM that has too many apps in it (like UX8.0, UX8.1 and UX8.5), so that when you don't debloat it, it will lead to disappearance of some apps from system/app or system/priv-app. Please read notice below:

Flashing new pitfile will repartition your memory so that 400MB from your usable space in sdcard will be transferred to /system partition. To achieve this, every file on your phone will be wiped. PLEASE backup EFS. Also backup ALL important files. They will be WIPED

P.S. The pitfile is indicating HLTE, but I suppose it can be flashable to all snapdragon note3 with 32GB memory.

Leon_Stalker provided the Note5 gallery apk with nougat icon which I put into flashable zip above.

4.

This MOD was presented by Subin khan here, by claim that camera modes don't work. This MOD replaces pro modes of note7 camera with pro lite mode. You are losing pro mode functions as ISO, dual camera and photo effects. But you also lose autofocus, which FC note7 camera. Instead you get a pro lite mode, with options that don't FC note7 camera. There is already a flashable zip shared on same post to revert back to note 7 pro mode.

5.

This MOD changes photo editor inside Gallery app. It doesNOT work outside Gallery (i.e. it does not work when you edit a screenshot right after taking it). It only works when you edit a photo that was opened by Gallery. All photo editor functions were tested and proven working.


6.


For those who like system mode functions rather than systemless (like me), on this thread you can find system superSU zip that I use to flash.

P.S. I havent updated supersu. I am still using 2.79 SR3 with no issue whatsoever.

This fix is present in this thread. It fixes the inability to show call waiting notification in note7 port ROMs. After flashing the fix, device will optimize apps. So, beware of that and keep your device in cool place and wait till it optimizes all apps (may take 15-30 minutes).

"How-To" Post

In this post you will see some examples of what can be done using flashable zips. The examples mostly will be provided as singular usage, but you can also mix the method in one flashable zip (for example make an aroma-flashable zip, that acts as deleting some folders/files, extracting files into root folder, before changing an xml value after changing an apk via vrtheme method). These are not golden rules, I just brought up what I can remember. If I can be helpful, this will give a smile on my face


1.
How to Prepare a simple Flashable Zip


All MODs (at least for now) are zips that are flashable in recovery. To build a flashable zip, you need to:
1. Download an example simple flashable zip
2. Download and install Notepad ++ or Atom Editor
3. Download and install 7zip File Manager


Now, every flashable zip has to have "META-INF" folder. Inside "META-INF\com\google\android" folder you will find "update-binary" and "updater-script" (other than in aroma-flashable zips, where you will find aroma files too). Update-binary should stay as it is. But "updater-script" can be changed depending on need.

An example updater-script has been provided as:
Code:
ui_print("Starting");
unmount("/system");
unmount("/data");
unmount("/preload");
unmount("/cache");
ui_print("Mounting Partitions");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/data");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/dalvik");
ui_print("Placing files");
package_extract_dir("system", "/system");
package_extract_dir("data", "/data");
ui_print("Unmounting Partitions");
unmount("/system");
unmount("/data");
unmount("/cache");
ui_print("Done!");
This script has important parts that can be explaines as shown below:
- ui_print("..."); --> What is written in screen while flashing is going on. You can put explanatory stuff as "Flashing Circle checkbox MOD" or "Flashing Nougat Gallery" and etc inside quotes (").
- unmount and mount --> Before flashing a zip, it is important to mount required partition. If files to be flashed are inside "/data" then you have to mount "data" firstly, then afterwards unmount "data"
- package_extract_dir --> This shows where the files will be extracted to. If you have files to be flashed in "/system" folder, then you need to have a line saying "package_extract_dir("system", "/system")". Here, it means that the files inside "system" folder of zip will be placed into "/system" folder in the root folder of phone.

By modifying these regions you can assign which files will be sent to which folder while flashing. To learn more, feel free to look at the zips shared in this thread.

When you need to change a flashable zip, dont extract it. You need to get used to work with 7zip file manager. Open the flashable zip with 7zip, then select a file that you want to edit. For example let's say you want to edit updater-script. Open zip with 7zip, go to META-INF\com\google\android folder inside zip and locate updater-script. You can see that it has no extension. Now, select it and drag it outside the zip (for example to desktop or any other folder inside computer). After finishing editing, use same principle for placing file inside the zip; as in, select the file outside the zip, then drag it inside the zip. There will be a prompt saying "Are you sure you want to copy files into archive?", click "yes".

Now, any changes done in updater-script or any other text file (for example scripts with ".sh" extension) has to be done using "Notepad++" (or similar neat text editor like "Atom Editor"). Never use "Notepad", "Wordpad", "Office Word" or other text editors (I have done that mistake, believe me). I try to drag any file that will be changed outside zip, edit it, then drag it back. I don't edit files that are opened from inside the zip.


2.
How to Prepare a File/Folder Cleaner Flashable Zip


File/Folder Cleaner is an easier version of flashable zip. Mostly, such zips contain lines for deleting folders/files in META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script file. Two main deleting lines in updater-script are "delete" and "delete-recursive". Delete command removes a file, whereas delete_recursive removes a folder. An example provided below is showing both delete commands.
As always, you firstly need to mount the folder which you will edit. As default, /system, /data and /cache are mounted even if not all of them are changed. Then, the delete and/or delete_recursive lines. And lastly, obviously you need to unmount mounted folders.
Code:
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/data");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/cache");

delete_recursive("/system/priv-app/SamsungBilling");
delete("system/app/AdvSoundDetector_2015/AdvSoundDetector_2015.apk");

run_program("/sbin/busybox", "unmount", "/system");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "unmount", "/data");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "unmount", "/cache");
3.
How To Prepare an XML Editor Zip


These zips require an sh script. For example, a script to change a line from "bikemode|globalaction" to false is as follows:

Code:
#!/sbin/sh
sed -i 's/ConfigBikeMode>bikemode|globalaction/ConfigBikeMode>FALSE/g' /system/csc/feature.xml
These were used for example in S8 TWHome zip. To have a working S8 TWHome on MagMa-NX without FC you have to change "support_nfc_hw_keyboard" from "true" to "false" in floating_feature.xml. For that case you need following script:

Code:
#!/sbin/sh
sed -i 's/SUPPORT_NFC_HW_KEYBOARD>TRUE/SUPPORT_NFC_HW_KEYBOARD>FALSE/g' /system/etc/floating_feature.xml
Such script editors are mostly beneficial for users that dont have root access to change files in root folder.
To run such scripts, you also need extra lines in updater_script. Firstly, you need to copy the script to phone to be able to run it. So, you require a package_extract_dir function to copy files from zip to phone. For sh scripts, the de facto rule is to copy it into /tmp folder, since it will be removed after being executed. After copying file, you obviously need to give the correct permissions, which are set_perm(0, 0, 0777, "/tmp/xxx.sh"). Then, you execute the script with run_program line. Lastly, you remove the whole /tmp folder with delete_recursive. It looks like this:

Code:
package_extract_dir("nxteam/script", "/tmp");
set_perm(0, 0, 0777, "/tmp/feature.sh");
run_program("/tmp/feature.sh");
delete_recursive("/tmp");
For our example, the feature.sh was taken from S8 TWHome script, where the support_nfc_hw_keyboard was turned from "true" to "false".

How to Prepare a VRTheme-Flashable Zip


"Original VRTheme engine is copyright VillainROM 2011"

To build a VRTheme flashable zip, you need to:
1. Download an example VRTheme flashable zip
2. Download and install Notepad ++ or Atom Editor
3. Download and install 7zip File Manager


VR in VRTheme, is abbreviation of Villain Rom, but not virtual reality. Now, in vrtheme engine, the developer has written a code that can directly change the files inside apk. As you know, apk is in a zipped format, as in, you can explore inside of it using a zip-folder viewing program. You can do it on android too. I am using Mixplorer file manager for android with its archive add-on for that case.

Let's turn back to topic. As you can see, there are differences inside a decompiled apk and an apk opened via file/zip manager. Depending on app type, you can see classes.dex, classes2.dex, resources.arsc and etc in apk opened via file/zip manager. These include smali folder and values folder (for details, reader is referred to google). Other folders inside /res directory (like layout, anim and drawable) are open to editing via this method. Basically, this engine enters apk using zip archive, does editing inside it and then exits apk.

I told above that the layout, anim and drawable folders are prone to changes via this method (examples are "Circle Checkbox MOD", "Hidden Button MOD" and "Center Clock MOD"). But dont think only they can be changed. No. If the changes are only inside smali or values folder, you can again use this method. But now, instead of changing some images in drawable or xml files in layout, you will have to replace whole that file (classes.dex, classes2.dex, resources.arsc and etc). This method was also used, in "Enable NavBar MOD" (explained in further below the paragraph).

Differences in files flashed via vrtheme is that you have to use files extracted from inside apk, not use decompiled files. For example if you need to replace an xml inside an apk, you cannot use an edited xml decompiled from apk. You have to firstly compile the edited apk, then take that file out of that zip and place inside vrtheme zip. That is the only way for vrtheme edited apk to function normally.

Inside the zip you will find nxteam folder, where you will see "icons" and "vrtheme" folders. You shouldnt touch vrtheme folder. You will place the files inside "icons" folder. Inside vrtheme folder, you will find installtheme.sh script, where you will see lines starting like these:
Code:
# start with /system/app
...
# repeat for /system/priv-app
...
# repeat for /system/framework
...
# create restore zip from backup apks
...
This means, the vrtheme can change apks inside these folders. When placing a file from inside an apk, you should not put a zipped or apk file. You have to put the file as extracted from compiled apk. An example from "Enable NavBar MOD":
- Here, I needed to replace resources.arsc from edited framework (bools.xml inside values folder was edited) into framework-res.apk inside system/framework and replace icons of navbar from marshmallow with the ones from S8 inside systemUI.apk. So what I did was, I edited those apk, replaced in my phone, checked that they are working, then I extracted those files from inside compiled apk (since changes in framework-res were in values folder (vlaues/bools.xml), I had to replace whole resourses.arsc; whereas for systemUI the changes were only in drawable fikes inside /res/drawable which can be changed directly) and put inside required folders. I placed both framework folder and priv-app folder inside a "system" folder, then replaced the files that needed to be changed.

Lastly, I dont advise changing updater-script inside META-INF folder of vrtheme flashable zips.

Nice thread. Keep up the good work !
Just one question. I think i saw you say in another thread, that a vr theme center clock would be possible ?
I tried it myself. There's even a code, that it hides the statusbar clock on the lock screen (when centered). It either compiles it and the apk isn't working (constant warning that system UI has stopped), or it doesn't even compile it (showing errors i don't know how to troubleshoot). So I'm asking you, since you are the modding master !
