This is a minor mod. It's purpose: Speed up access to settings and applications. Stay true to original design. Small, simple, fast without battery drain. How I think Samsung should have made it
It only needs a supported rom (odexed or deodexed) and a kernel with CWM support.

Before posting questions or statements then please read the FAQ in 3rd post, thanks.

Close the thread.

The left screen shot is from the Deluxe Settings apk used to setup the Phone Options and the right one is an example of a JKay Deluxe Phone Options dialog.

1 ) How do I install this
* Flash a kernel that support CWM like CF kernels
* Learn how to use CWM (clock work mod)
* Find the mod from link in 2nd post
* Download it and put it on your sd
* Boot to cwm and install mod zip file
* Reboot

2) What version should I download?
The mod must match your rom. Open phone app and call: *#1234#
Write down the PDA information.. If it says like N7000XXLA4 then its XXLA4.
Click the link for your rom and select odexed if its a stock samsung rom. Deodexed if its a deodexed
custom rom (deodexed are ROMs that have not been optimized so they do not have an external .odex file).

3) I use ROM XYZ. Can you make JKay Deluxe for it?
If the rom support you are asking for is an European ROM and its newer and better than the latest on the support rom list then please post the question. Otherwise the answer is NO. I only make this mod for versions I use on my phone (currently only the latest XX??? versions).

4) This toggle does not work, what should I do?
Not all toggles have been implemented yet. But if it should work and you just upgraded from an earlier version then you can try to clear the dalvik-cache, it might still hold the dex file from the old version. Or if you use a custom rom then the problem might be file permissions on the Deluxe Settings Shared preference file so try to clear the Deluxe Settings data using Settings->Applications->Manage applications->All->Deluxe Settings->Clear Data (Then use restore in Deluxe Settings to get all your settings back). Also try to install the mod again. Sometimes CWM has some problems applying mods and does nothing!

5) It does not work, please help?
Ok... Before you post questions like this please ask yourself: Does my question lead to other questions? Here are a few tips for posting questions.
* read all of this FAQ
* do a simple search
* be specific: never use words like 'it does' etc...
* make sure people are able to reproduce your issue
* specify rom version, custom rom name, kernel, theme name, JKay Deluxe version.
* if you use a version that was ported to a different rom (PDA version) by another person and have problems then never ever ask for support in this thread!!! Don't even mention the problem in this thread!! People might think that there are issues with my mod when in fact there are not!

6) Does this mod work with custom rom XYZ?
I only use stock odexed Samsung rom and kernel. I do not even test the deoxed versions I make. So questions like these have to answered by one else (try in the custom rom thread).

7) How do I customize the Phone Options dialog?
Use my Deluxe Settings app. Select 'Edit phone options' to select which items you want to have on your
Power options dialog: Vibrate On/Off, Wi-Fi on/off, Bluetooth on/off, Auto-rotate on/off, Background
data On/Off, Auto sync On/Off, Auto-Brightness On/Off, Use GPS Satellites on/off, Mobile AP on/off,
Screenshot, Reboot, Recovery and download.

8) How do I customize the JKay AOSP Deluxe lock screen?
Use the Deluxe Settings app to change the lockscreen to JKay AOSP Deluxe. Select 'Edit actions'. Press a shortcut to select what application the shortcut should launch.
Use option menu (menu button) when on the app list to select 'Unlock' action if slider should unlock, 'Not in use' if slider should be hidden, 'Flashlight toggle' if you like a flashlight on your lock screen or select 'Sound toggle' if you like to be able to toggle sound on and off from the lock screen.
Long press shortcut to select a custom icon for it from gallery.
It's also possible to change the icon for missed phone calls, missed messages, Flashlight on, Sound off and Vibrate on by using the option menu on the shortcut screen. But you need to have Phone, Messaging, Flashlight or Sound on/off on the lock screen to see them in action

9) How does Deluxe Settings Apk work?
JKay Deluxe Settings apk writes settings to its own shared preference file in its data folder. Then it
sends an intent to tell the modded framework to read the new settings from the shared preference file
into its static variables. The modded framework then uses these variables to work as you decided!
The apk does not run as a service!
To uninstall Deluxe Settings apk use the for your rom.
Deluxe Settings apk will not work from sd card!

10) My Theme is gone!
JKay Deluxe contains new icons for the Quick Settings panel and the Phone Options dialog therefore
these icons have been included into SystemUI.apk and framework-res.apk. JKay Deluxe stock mod contains
stock Samsung icons (plus the new icons I have made in the same stock style).

11) I would like permission to theme your mod, is that ok?
Sure go ahead. But you are only allowed to change xml and pngs! Remember to credit me! And please test themes containing my mod good before releasing! Think about png resolution and sizes... Use 8bit pngs! Make sure your compilers supports xhdpi, only edit decompiled nine patch pngs... and don't compress the resources.arsc file! While it might work it will actually slow down your framework as Android has to decompress it!

12) Auto Brightness Profiles does not work
When you select a different Auto brightness profile then it wont take effect until the light sensor
detects a change in the ambient light level.

13) Why does it say 'Custom kernel required' when I change Auto Brightness Profile?
The stock samsung kernel only supports brightness values down to 20. If you use a value lower than 20
then 20 will be used. Therefore I have put a * next to the profiles with values lower than 20. The
brightness resolution on stock kernel is also not very high. All values from 1 to 29 all gives the same
brightness, all values from 30 to 42 all gives the same brightness! That gives about 20 different
brightness levels when going from 0 to 255!

14) So what custom kernels support these lower brightness values?
I have no idea. When you find one then let me know and I will put it here.

15) What is the 'Secure mode' quick settings toggle good for?
If you have to use PIN lock screen because of security reasons... Usually because an Exchanges server
requires it enabled to sync email at work etc... then you can use this toggle to disable the pin
lockscreen and still be able to check email without the need to enter your pin all the time! The normal
lockscreen will then be shown instead (or no lockscreen if that is selected!)

16) What does the 'Screen On' quick settings toggle do?
If you like me like to read articles on the phone before going to sleep and you do not want to change
the default screen timeout. Then the temporary screen timeout setting is for you! It will reset back to
your normal screen timeout when the screen turns off! Or you can use the custom screen timeout if you
quickly wants to switch between default and custom timeouts.

17) What does the toggle 'Show when secure' under 'Set lock screen options' menu do?
In JKay Deluxe it is possible to have both the unlock screen (pattern, pin etc..) and the JKay AOSP Deluxe lock screen active at the same time.
First the lock screen will be shown. From here you can start the Camera, Music app or just slide to unlock and then the Unlock screen will appear from where you will have to enter pattern or pin etc... This way you can still enjoy the JKay AOSP Deluxe lockscreen while having a secure phone.

18) Where is the source code?
There is no source code! Well actually you already have the source code. Baksmali the files from the mod and do a compare with the original framework files. That's what I do. Remember the XDA rules! You must ask for permission first and you must credit the developers if you release anything!

19) How do You do it?
I use TotalCommander, 7zip,baksmali, smali, dexopt-wrapper, apkManager and notepad++ for the smali code
I use Eclipse and Android SDK for the Deluxe Settings apk.
And Adobe Photoshop for the new PNGs. I use pngout.exe and pngquant.exe to convert between rgb and 8
bit PNGs.

20) I want to learn to do what You can?
Well. You need to learn Java. And you need to learn to edit smali code. You also need to learn XML and the tools I use. Then you need to study the Android SDK and Android Dev Guide. It might also be helpful to learn about 8bit PNGs and Nine-Patch PNGs. Google search is your new best friend!

21) How do I contact you?
You can use my donate email address. I have turned off PM because notification does not work in XDA premium.
