This has bothered me since i first looked at my One X

Why in the hell is the ICS Holo Dark Background not dithered?
for those who don't know what i mean, look at the two pics,

Dithered:


not Dithered: (stock look)


The only point i would see, is the difference in file size (4,4 Kb vs 119 Kb)

but never the less i very much prefer the dithered png, and so i added it to the framework-res.apk

if anyone wants to use this just copy the file into framework-res.apk/res/drawable-nodpi/background_holo_dark.png

That's funny... it's bothered me seeing that as well. Looks fugly on a high end such as the one X. Great minds think a like. This "fix" will be implemented in my Energy ROM that will be posted today...

Woah, now that you think about it, it looks bad. Thanks for this

EDIT: I'm interested if this could be turned into a flashable zip, so no need to edit the rom for example, and flash it again.

EDIT2: Nevermind :P

Thanks a lot for this man.

I was really bothered by this one particular quirk. Apps like Boid looked weird with the dark themes.

I just wish all the devs would implement this in their ROMs.

Is this doable? Would be awesome if it is.

it would be possible to provide a flashable zip but this would revert all other mods, becsuse the whole framework-res. apk will be exchanged!

but it is possible to use metamorph or something similar :)

Ok.

Could you please provide instructions on how to achieve this by using metamorph? Which exact file will have to be modified, etc.?

Thanks :)
