Hi there,

I decided to share some changes I made to the UI, mostly to the Lockscreen as I didn't like Moto's icons.
This is "take it or leave it" If you don't agree to the things I like, please do it by yourself or leave this package alone.

This is a CWM-package, install it from there. The package will replace framework-res.apk, SystemUI.apk and MotGallery.apk and will delete the *.odex files, so this Mod works for odexed and deodexed systems JB 91.2.26001 en.EU.

What I did:

(framework-res.apk)
- changed icons for new lockscreen (AOSP style)
- removed the silent switch
- removed phone and messaging shortcut
- removed the SOS icon
- removed the dividers
- new lockscreen circle
- reworked the music lockscreen widget
- changed blue gradient background in many apps to solid black (since v1.4)
- changed LED blinking rate from 800/3200ms to 500/1500ms
- 2 versions to flash: Notification LED in green (standard) or blue, see attachments

(SystemUI.apk)
- removed the carrier label in status bar completely
- changed the GSM signal to standard Holo color (blue)
- reworked the standard battery icon to fit the blue of the clock, made it slightly smaller and nicer (especially the red battery icon)
- reworked signal cluster completely, no gap anymore between Wifi and GSM icon

Caution: in order to get the white camera icon working, I needed to change the standard camera icon of MotCamera.apk - so this apk will be exchanged too!

Caution: Since version 2.0 there is no need to change MotCamera.apk anymore, so I left it out of the CWM package. If you flashed the old LockscreenMod and want the stock camera (with a new fancy blue icon, see screenshot!) back, just flash JB-Camera.zip in CWM, too. This must only be done once! Clear cache and dalvik afterwards.

If you never flashed my Mod before, you don't need to flash Camera (but you may if you want).


Enjoy!
And please make a backup first, just for your convenience.

Update 1.1:
- found a nicer drag handle, added it in framework-res.apk

Update 1.2:
- changed notification LED blinking rate from 800ms/3200ms (ON/OFF) to 500ms/1500ms (unreceived calls, GMail...)

Update 1.3
- reworked signal cluster in SystemUI.apk with new standard Holo icons, no gap between Wifi and GSM icon anymore
- smaller drag handle in lockscreen, finally found the standard one
- 2 versions: Notification LED in blue or standard green (for unreceived calls, messaging, GMail, ...)

Update 1.4
- changed blue gradient background in many apps to solid black

Update 1.4.1
- Changed Lockscreen circle to a half circle

Update 2.0
- Completely rewritten unlock circle, just AOSP now, see screenshots!
- reworked music control, so that the circle fits in a whole
- since v2.0 you don't need to change MotCamera.apk anymore, read above!

Update 2.0t
- added a transparent music widget for v2.0-blue (date and carrier half transparent too)

Update 2.1
- lock circle stays in same position now, regardless if music widget is active or not
- removed carrier label, so that lock circle is in the lower third (you can see carrier if you slide down status bar)
- full date instead of abbreviated weekday (Germany only)
- from now on I will only maintain the "blue LED/transparent widget" version, as I use it myself

Update 2.1a
- same as 2.1, but with a menu button instead of the recent button, see here:

It's only possible to change the color for ALL notifications. Standard color (Mail, SMS, unreceived call, GMail) is green. Yes, this could be changed, but only for all apps together.

If you need separate colors, use LightFlow from market.

[edit]
There you go, I updated the OP with 2 new zip's, enjoy!

New version 1.4.
This will be the last update for the next time as I am completely satisfied
BLACK background instead of the blueish gradient tint in most apps and settings, looks so much nicer now. Try it with black themed Messaging.apk, looks really wonderful.

Can I use your mod ? I want to add 1% battery icon to it, and remove white and blue circles on lockscreen.

BTW. Great mod, thanks.

Sure! Glad you like it, thanks

Do you mean the unlock rings when you hover over an icon? What do you want to use instead? I'm curious...

Nothing I ldon't like how the blue circle looks at all, and the white gets truncated when sound widget is visible, so I've removed both them. It looks simpler, but I like it. I'll upload picture tommorow.

Although I didn't want to update, I took your inspiration to create a new (half) lockscreen circle with a small blue one, see screenshots in OP.
Just a minor update to 1.4.1

I like what you have done with the SystemUI. Well, at least I like the changelog I am going to try it, and see how it looks like.

Do you think you could also incorporate the following change:

I must say, the bigger clock looks much better in joaquin.mik screenshot.

And could I use your SystemUI.apk in my next version of the AIO mod?
