Does anyone knows where the Black Background in Emui Stock Camera app is related? I tried systemui but couldn't find it anyways. (Had the idea to make the Camera Transparent.

tengo un moto e4 el promema es que se quedo en ciclo de arranque estuve investigando y sin querer inserte este codigo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery por error y ahora mi movil enciende en la pantalla de motorola y luego se apaga y vuelve a hacer lo mismo y no puedo entrar al recovery ni a nada alguien que me ayude

You deleted your recovery. Reinstall twrp or your stock recovery.

Spanish
Tu borraste tus recuperación. Reinstalar twrp o su recuperación de existencias.


@Ibuprophen

He ran dd if=/dev/zero on his recovery partition, and didn't understand why he was boot looping when trying to get into recovery. I'm betting a buddy of his screwed with him. Never thought I'd see this one... Lmao!

Looking for some help if possible. In the image below, on the left is my modded stock power menu using the global_actions_item.xml and global_actions_double_item.xml in the framework. However, when I install a screen recording apk I'm presented with the image on the right...



When I use the android monitor to try and locate the resource everything points to the SystemUI, but no matter what I do I can't seem to change the black text to white with the screen recorder installed, which I've also decompiled but can't find anything obvious in there.

Any help is much appreciated.


It looks like the extra button for record is where the string would be for screenshot and it isn't displaying. Try finding the string, should be something like res/values/strings.xml and make it something shorter like pic or shot

Thanks for the suggestion. Just reinstalled the screen recorder app to test this, but was surprised to find it's already fixed. I've made a few mods to my framework so it's hard to pin point exactly what the solution was.

Hello, I am a little new here. I am kind of a newb with a lot of things. I did root my device and replaced the boot images.. but i do not know how to make themes. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to help by making a theme for me?

I added some images as to what i am looking to have done, that is of course anyone is willing to help. it is fairly simple i am looking to get the color scheme and kids icons if possible... maybe have a little fun with the clock or not if its too much work.

If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it... i am a graphic designer more than a programmer.. a lot of this is confusing to me.

I really like this site and hopefully i can be of some help at some point. This is my first post but i plan on posting a lot more.

where can i download themes for android phone?

I think this is the right thread for my question. So you guys know how accent colors were introduced into android Q, and there are some limited options. Some custom ROMs add more options for accents in the same list. So I'm curious, is there any way to add your own accent colors if you have root? Like are there any files you can tinker that have hex values or something?

Hi, could u recommend me a good, customizable Launcher that fully support Android 10? I was using Lawnchair till now, but I have small performance and stability issues (understandable, because it's pre alpha). It can be paid app.

Try Nova Launcher (search google for pro or mod apk) ?

Anyone know how to do it? I really hate that their app doesn't have dark mode

1. Android 10 - Darkmode should force it
2. If you on Huawei/Honor or Xiaomi device, then you could simply create a custom Dark theme.

    I would like to change the text color of the popup panel or menu to white.

    paneltext.jpg


    I have a nexus one, using CM6, and decompiled my framework-res.apk. I found in the Value folder that the styles.xml has the following that is relevant to changing the panel text color. The code:

    <item name="panelBackground">@drawable/menu_background</item>
    <item name="panelFullBackground">@drawable/menu_background_fill_parent_width</item>
    <item name="panelColorForeground">?textColorPrimaryInverse</item>
    <item name="panelColorBackground">#ffffffff</item>
    <item name="panelTextAppearance">?textAppearanceInverse</item>

    I did several things but the text is still black.

    1)I removed "Inverse",
    2)changed the "panelColorBackground" to #ff000000 and, left "panelColorForeground" "panelTextAppearance" alone.
    3)removed "Inverse"

    Nothing helps. Do you have any idea?

    After I changed the styles.xml, I recompiled, copied original AndroidManifest.xml and META-INF folder to the modded framework-res.apk, then pushed. Is any of the following incorrect?

    please help

    In the styles.xml change:

    <style name="TextAppearance.Widget.IconMenu.Item" parent="@style/TextAppearance.Small">
    <item name="textColor">?textColorPrimaryInverse</item>

    to

    <style name="TextAppearance.Widget.IconMenu.Item" parent="@style/TextAppearance.Small">
    <item name="textColor">@color/bright_foreground_dark</item>

    why do we need to zip the files in linux? By the way thanks for the theming for dummies guide. ;)

    I don't know why, something about how linux packages zip files opposed to windows, and yes once I figure it out and find all the problems people can have I am going to make up a nice walkthrough on making themes. But I wouldn't be surprised if there were already some theme manager apps in the works to make this whole process easier.

    Nice concept...but I`m not sure if you have looked at this topic http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=467639 It describe how to make a theme and stuff, good starting point anyways. Hope it helps!
    4
    Im teaching myself how to make themes as well. I have found it best to read through that walkthrough a million times and then PM a couple of the dev guys to answer specific questions.

    Basically this is the process:

    - Take a theme that you like for RC30 or ADP1 or whatever you wanna make it in

    - Extract 2 folders inside, app, and framework into a new folder on your computer

    - Rename add a .zip to the end of the apk files and extract them all so you have a bunch of folders with your app names

    - Go into res and find any folder that says drawable and inside of there are the files to edit for your theme. Make sure not to edit the .9.png files.

    - Once all your editing is done get into linux and turn all the folders back into zip files, then turn them back into apk files.

    - Then take your app folder and framework folder that contain the new files and in linux create it into one zip file.

    - Then you send the file back to windows, get the SignAPK files, put your zip in the folder with the SignAPK files and run some commands in the CMD to resign the file.

    - Then rename that file update.zip and put it on the SDcard and give it a whirl.



    This is how I understand the process after talking to a couple people for the last few days. I am hoping to release my own theme soon and if it works you will know that these steps are right. LOL And dont follow those directions, they are just to give you an idea of the steps involved.
