What does this Mod Do?

This mod will give you "unlimited" multiwindow apps and a minimize button for windows. Also enabled double tap on titlebar to maximize windows.


NEW UPDATE 18 January 2013
Just added Unlimited MultiWindow Mod for N8013-UEUCMA3 & N8000-XXCMA1 and updated N8000_XXCLL3. I hope this new update will give you unlimited multiwindow apps without needing to mod apks or edit the csc file. As I do not have a note10.1 to test it, please let me know if it works.

Some info about the Resize Button that appears on the control bar or bottom right of every opened app. The JB 4.1.2 has the necessary code that put the Resize button on every supported app while the JB 4.1.1 doesn't. The only way to put the Resize button on every app for JB 4.1.1 is to insert the missing code fragment from the 4.1.2 to the 4.1.1 located in android.policy.jar (MultiPhoneWindowEvent$SwithToPreviousSizeButton.smali). Or modding the apps apk and specifically inserting the necessary multiwindow code and dimensions. That is a lot of work and impossible for me to do without a test device. Add to that the fact that smali is a totally foreign language.


Information about the Flashable Files.

There are now 2 options for each ROM version. For example, N8000-XXCMA1.UnlimitedApps will give you unlimited multiwindow apps. Whereas, N8000-XXCMA1.useMultiWindowManagerApp will display all apps on the traybar but wont display as MultiWindow unless enabled with bjbinc's MultiWindow Manager App. So basically the traybar becomes a launcher for both multiwindow and non-multiwindow apps. If an app has been multiwindow-enabled then it will display as multiwindow but if not multiwindow enabled, it will load as a normal fullscreen app. Both versions contain the minimize button and the double-tap to maximize feature. I tried my best to enable 4wayReboot options (even though I haven't tested it) and added Circle Battery theme.

How to install?
1. Make a nandroid backup to be safe. It is essential that you always make a backup.
2. You need to be on a rooted deodex ROM preferably unmodified framework files.
3. Download the appropriate mod for your rom/device below and flash thru CWM recovery.

So I tried to make a patch to enable Unlimited Apps for Multiwindow which may or may not work for Note10.1 that is why I call it a "Test" for those who are willing to try. This is the same patch I made to enable unlimited multiwindow apps for my floating multiwindows mod for note n7000 which basically brings the features of note10.1 to note1. I included a CWM flashable restore file in case you want to go back.

How to install?
Make a nandroid backup to be safe. You need to be on a rooted XXCLL3 ROM preferably unmodified framework files.Just download the UnlimitedMultiwindowApps.mod.zip file and flash thru CWM recovery. To restore, just flash the restore.orig.zip.

Important Information:
Apps which are not specifically modded for multiwindows do not appear on the traybar but when you launch them on the homescreen or drawer, they have the "multiwindow button" at the top right or bottom right to make them into a floating window. The trick is to install a launcher like swipepad and launch it as a window and almost all apps that you launch on swipepad will launch in window mode. Swipepad in window mode will serve as replacement for the traybar to launch windowed apps. Give it a try.


Warning: Flash this at your own risk. I am not responsible if you brick your device.

Thanks I will try it when i reach come, but if your rom is based on a real note 10.1 rom then in theory it should work or it should be modified allittle more to work on our note

Try to set window layout to cascade mode. If it does not resize, maybe the framework-res.apk needs to be altered as well.

Thanks! This is a good modification.
However, this modification only works with the visualization to cascade mode and the dimension of the reduced windows with the modification is much more big of those redoubts with the multiwindows original.

Works on Redemption ROM. I have one app that crashes from the mod. It is a rotation control app that does not need the multiscreen feature. Is there a way I can manually fix this? I may be able to fix it myself if I knew how your mod works. Thanks for the awesome work. Our Note 10.1's will put iPad users to shame.

Update:
I fixed my issue by uninstalling and reinstalling the app. I'll have to see if it still works after a reboot too.

After I flashed part 1 I lost my external sdcard mount.
But when I rebooted it looks like it's working.

Do I have to flash part 2 also?

Till now everything is working fine with just part one.
What does part 2 do?

One thought, the icons is in the bottom right corner, just at the same effect place as the "enter" key in SwiftKey tablet.
So I often press that button instead of the enter.

Otherwise working outstanding mate!
These mods make a good tablet great!!!!

    Thanks a lot for this patch, now all my apps are running multiwindow , but yes the patch needs some more modifying , i`m here attaching 2 screenshots for the same app , one with Dual View & the other Cascading View.

    Is there the same problem in all MultiWindow apps?
    1
    There used to be a mod for replacing the Multi-Window Button (the one that's on the bottom right hand corner) with one of a different size (ie: a smaller one)

    Can anyone remember where it is?
