I guess it just the same..find notification_panel_bg.9.png..change it with your preferred image..
The resolution of the image that need to be change is depend with your device..to know your device resolution, make a screenshot, then see what is the screenshot image resolution..

Or the easiest way is just open your systemui apk with winrar, find the notification_panel_bg i suppose in drawable-hdpi folder ( depend on your device! ). Drag and replace the png in the winrar with your preferred image..BUT WITH EXACT RESOLUTION! then push the apk to system/app..reboot..

That should do..

Yes..it will not affect anything if your system is deodexed..
Btw, there is no resolution of 480x600..it should be 480x800, and your device running hdpi..same as mine
Have you found the png?

find status_bar_background (change its color) or system_bar_background (change its color).
I forgot which one..LOL..
give it a try..

Hello joehanh88, ...(apktool if framework-res.apk) then (apktool if SystemUI.apk) then I decompiled original SystemUI.apk (apktool d SystemUI.apk SystemUI) -> edited ...xml,png... -> compiled modified SystemUI (apktool b SystemUI SystemUI_mod.apk) -> opened in WinRAR original SystemUI.apk and copy to PC folder META-INF folder and AndroidManifest.xml file -> opened in WinRAR modified SystemUI_mod.apk and from PC folder copy META-INF folder and AndroidManifest.xml file to SystemUI_mod.apk -> rename SystemUI_mod.apk on SystemUI.apk and move to phone... RootExplorer... restart phone...

I do something wrong, because the phone report an error SystemUI...!

There is no need modified SystemUI.apk file "singing" or "zipalign" or "certification" or "something else"? Please help me, thank you very much!

(this will remove the ongoing cart)

dimens.xml
find :
HTML Code:
<dimen name="quick_setting_button
there will be 7 lines for that..
change all to "0.0dip".

let me know if its not working


I edited everything according to the instructions, but toggles not completely removed - please see attachments

Toggle buttons are deleted, but will remain only blank space... how this blank space remove? (notifications moved completely up!)
