Friends, V-Edge TIPOiCE will remain continued till I release Pure ICS version of the same. Till then experience serene beauty of the TIPOiCE.

PLEASE NOTE
Quote:

For any Issues/Queries/Feedback/Modification_Guidance Please mark your comments in the same Thread only. Keep updated with the Latest News on the Project. Report any issues or Performance lags if noticed by you.

I have not touched the stock Calendar and Browser apps and the background is still White so while on these apps your Statusbar Icons may seem lighter. If you changed the background wallpaper, it will give different impact (Prefer Dark Backgrounds)

Please DO NOT ask me to change Fonts of Apps or Colors of UIs you see there. It’s a Themes and Will remain like that. If one Do not like any specific app or Interface of App then he/she can flash that specific app by getting it form anywhere on his/her device.
Yes all Stock/Non stock apps will work with this ROM. Hence, no meaning of discussing it here.

I have set what can be the Best Suitable for this ROM

CPU Rendering Function added is on Test Phase and may not be on its best results.

Various Tweaks added for Quality Handling and Performance. One or other may not work with full functionality due to device hardware limitations.

HOW TO FLASH V-Edge TIPOiCE
Quote:

A] You must have CWM Recovery Installed to Flash V-Edge TIPOiCE AND/OR other Patches/Updates
B] Please Create a Linux Partition (ext3) using CWM on your Device (If already having then FORMAT it)
Note: Take Backup of SD Card Contents as Creation of Linux Partition will wipe all Data on SD Card. This rom carryies Tweaks for auto-activation/creation of swap in your linux partition on SDCARD. You can create such partition(ext2/3/4) using Minitool Partition Wizard as well The Same partition will be also utilized for Link2sd (App pre-added) if u want to use.
C] Download & Copy the V-Edge_TIPOICE & Patches/Updates on SDCard (No need of Patches if you Got v0.3.3)
D] Reboot into Recovery (Keep Vol+ pressed while Powering ON)
E] Now perform all following Steps one by one : if steps completes successfully; UI will show process execution status and final status every time. Watch out that as well.

Quote:

1. On CWM Interface screen select 'Install Zip from sdcard'
2. Select 'choose zip from sdcard to install'
3. Locate ROM Zip and Execute Flash->Let the Installation Complete
4. 'Go back' to main menu and select & execute 'wipe data/facory reset'
5. Switch OFF Device Now by removing Battery. Remove SDCARD & Keep SDCARD aside, reassemble and Switch ON
6. Once the ROM boots up fully Switch OFF and insert SDCARD and Reboot
7. ++All Done++ Start Customizing your Device Now.
8. [Optional] Also Set Icon Colors in Power Toggles Application.
9. [Optional] After Customization Take CWM backup your Your System for Future Usage

Quote:

Please have patience while Flashing completes: Wait for ROM to boot up fully, Remember 1st Boot always take comparatively much longer time, hence will hang up on Xperia LOGO for some time while loading system or even at black screen once the Animation time goes up, so Don't worry have patience, If you see Xperia logo ..it self assures that your ROM will boot fully

Quote:

U MUST REMEMBER: After flashing any ROM if you get stuck into 'BootLogo' (Bootloop) then reboot into recovery again (You may need to remove battery and then rearrange to reboot) and on the main page do 'Wipe Data/Factory reset' once again and then choose to 'reboot system'. If its working ROM it will definitely boot up now..Must remove your SDCARD from device wihile booting up for the 1st time after Flashing This ROM

Quote:

INSTALLING Patches: Flashing Patches is Matter of your Choice. Its Not a compulsion. Once ROM boots up fully…reboot into recovery again and choose to Flash a Patch on TIPOICE. To flash a Patch Do not wipe Data nor to format anything. Just Select “Install zip from SD Card”. You can flash both the patches on this ROM.

Cool CHANGE DEFAULT BACKGROUND in ALL APPS: CHOOSE YOUR OWN MOOD
ExxPRESS YOUR MOOD with V-EDGE TIPOiCE

So Friends,
I guess you liked TIPOiCE !!!
Let me add a LilBit more to Make your NINJA smile even More...

..........Have a Look on following Screenshots...........


Yes COLOURS do eXXpress your Mood and Style !!! and If you want to express your Mood through your Device then Follow the GUIDE below:

Difficulty Level: Medium
Tools Needed:
(1) APKTOOL for Decompiling & Recompiling framework-res.apk
(2) Notepad++ for edition codes in .XML
(3) 7zip for Exchanging Files from one Recompiled APK to Base APK

Method:
1. Download and Extract APKTOOL and place the Folder in C:\<here> Now Your APKTOOL path is C:\apktool
2. Download the V-Edge_TIPOiCE_BG-Blue on your PC (This is your Current Blue Theme)
3. You will need framework-res.apk to add to APKTOOL folder on C:\ for Theming (TIPOiCE framework-res.apk is already Kept in APKTOOL here, so no worries, start decompiling it)
3. Now open Command Prompt and Start Decompiling the framework: Steps are as Follows:

A) Locating APKTOOL directory on cmd:
Quote:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\ViOLET R>cd c:\APKTOOL

B) Installing framework on APKTOOL:
Quote:

C:\APKTOOL>apktool if framework-res.apk
I: Framework installed to: C:\Documents and Settings\username\apktool\framework\1.apk

C) Decompiling framework-res.apk
Quote:

C:\APKTOOL>apktool d framework-res.apk FRAMEWORK001
I: Loading resource table...
I: Loaded.
I: Decoding file-resources...
I: Decoding values*/* XMLs...
I: Done.
I: Copying assets and libs...

You are done with Decompiling.

4. Now You will find your Decompiled files in FRAMEWORK001 folder that is now created in APKTOOL directory.
5. Open this folder and move to res/values/colors. Open colors.xml using Notepad++
6. You will find following in the bottom of Color list
Quote:

........
........
<color name="black_with_little_transparency">#dd000000</color>
<color name="white_with_little_transparency">#ddffffff</color>
<color name="violet">#ff9a0033</color> (Concentrate on here)
</resources>

7. Check the Color Code in <color name="violet">....... i.e. #ff9a0033 This is for PINK theme you see in Screen Shot
8. Change the color code #XXXXXXXX to your desired "Hex Color Code" once done Save & Close the colors.XML
9. Re-Compiling APK:. Now again popout cmd screen and start recompiling the framework-res.apk: Type following

Quote:

C:\APKTOOL>apktool b FRAMEWORK001 framework-res-new.apk
W: Could not find sources
I: Checking whether resources has changed...
I: Building resources...
I: Building apk file...

A new APK is now built in your APKTOOL directory named framework-res-new.apk (as we specified the name in your command)

10. Now Open this New APK (framework-res-new.apk (Not yet ready to be flashed)) and your framework-res.apk (base APK) side by side using 7zip
11. Replace 'res' folder and 'resources_arsc' of your framework-res.apk (Base APK) by 'res' folder and 'resources_arsc' of framework-res-new.apk (New APK)
12. Once done Close both APKs. Now The Edited framework-res.apk (where you have copied the 'res' and 'resources_arsc' is your FINAL framework to be installed.
13. Open the V-Edge_TIPOiCE_BG-Blue using 7zip and got to 'framework' folder and replace the framework-res.apk with the FINAL framework-res.apk that you got from above procedures. Close the zip and Install the Mod using CWM
14. Your whole android theme will be changed and will take the MOOD (COLOR) that you have set during editing colors.xml

NOW EXPRESS your MOOD using different colors and Impress People around you !!!
Enjoy !!!

The statusbar is Transparent only If you have not got Updated the ROM with 0.3.2 version...Try changing wallpaper..you ill come to know.
Transparent statusbar have issues while browsing and using few more stock apps...(icons get blur as the background of such apps is white.)

In 0.3.2 I have reset the whole background to color...instead of setting a pic a background and hence performance (time to load apps) is greatly improved and is its now almost instant.

If you still want to the new update 0.3.2 but with transparent statusbar only then Please download the same from here:


V-Edge_TIPOiCE_v0.3.2_TP (transparent Statusbar)
V-Edge_TIPOiCE_v0.3.2_NTP (Non-transparent Statusbar)

================================================== =======================================
To set a color of your choice as your default background please earlier post Taged as "ExxPRESS YOUR MOOD with V-EDGE TIPOiCE"

To identify exact color code of a color you see somewhere on a pc or web.... do following:

Download that PIC or take a screenshot of page haveing that color and then Go to this site: http://imagecolorpicker.com/
Upload your images there and then click on your color on the uploaded pic..you will get the code below on that page only.

Note the code e.g. #003e3b
Add 'ff' before this code so it will become your 8 digit color code with Null transparency: i.e. #ff003e3b
Now use this 8 digit code in above tutorial.
Recompile apk and flash it... It will change all background as expected.

Note: You must have to use the same framework-res.apk that is already included in APKTOOL folder. Replace the included widget_btn_transparent in res/drwables-mdpi if you want Transparent Widget buton as well on lock-screen.

Hello, Nice rom. I tried it last night. I was able to flash it correctly throuth CWM. But the problem is, settings' menu is too hard to read due to complete transparant background and other one and major one is, if I try to install any app from PlayStore, moblie would restart and app would not get installed. Same happens all the time hence unable to install apps from Play Store also, link2sd partition is not getting detected, I had recreated it using CWM and minitool, in both cases, it gave me 'mount script' error always. However, I had used link2sd before on stock rom and it worked fine.
Also what is mean by init.d support?

Unhappy Bugs with incoming call.
This very good like and works perfectly which I load last nights. But one bugs I showed that If I save any 10 number with name when incoming calls from this number, it does not shows the name. It may be due to incoming call comes with international prefix such as =81 0r +91 etc. pls remove the bugs.
