I'm going to use this thread from now on to post any work, and link out to existing work so i don't take over the forum with new threads.

Rules:

A couple of simple rules to help me help you.

  1. Use the search button/Google before posting, you'll probably get a quicker, more deatailed answer.
  2. Please post in here and not in the existing threads I link to, leave them as a reference.
  3. If you post bug reports, tell me how to duplicate the issue, and if possible post a screenshot.
  4. When asking a question or for advice, it helps if you tell me exactly what you want to achieve, (where you are and where you want to go). Please post plenty of relevant information.

Question
Here is a quick and simple way to change the system background for Sony based ROM's.

What you need:
  • 5 minutes
  • A rooted device
  • 7zip >>LINK<<
  • UFT.zip >>LINK<< THIS CONTAINS PRE-BUILT DIRECTORIES!
  • Backgrounds of your choice- 720x1280 maximum dimensions. Named "semc_bg_bright_tile"(light), and/or "semc_bg_tile"(dark).


Instructions:

  1. Download and install 7zip
  2. Download UFT.zip
  3. Right click "UFT.zip" and select "7zip>Open archive"
  4. In the new window navigate to "MORPH\system\framework\SemcGenericUxpRes.apk\res\ drawable-xhdpi\". You will see an image named "REPLACE_THIS_IMAGE_720X1280_MAXIMUM.png", delete it!
  5. Place your new background files in here by dragging and dropping. They must be called "semc_bg_bright_tile" and/or "semc_bg_tile".
  6. Close the window and place on you sdcard for flashing
Note: Make sure signature verification is turned off!!
