So let's start our tutorial of today :cool:


For this mod, we will modify 2 files; SystemUI.apk and framework-res.apk
First download the resources from here.

A) SystemUI.apk
1. Decompile SystemUI.apk by APK-Multi Tool.
2. Inside Recent_Mod.zip there is three files; status_bar_recent_item.xml and status_bar_recent_panel.xml, copy them to SystemUI\res\layout-port folder; and nyandroid11.png move it to SystemUI\res\drawable-nodpi folder
3. Go to SystemUI\res\values\bools.xml and change:
Code:
    <bool name="config_recents_thumbnail_image_fits_to_xy">[B][COLOR="Red"]false[/COLOR][/B]</bool>
to:
Code:
    <bool name="config_recents_thumbnail_image_fits_to_xy">[B][COLOR="Blue"]true[/COLOR][/B]</bool>
4. Go to SystemUI\res\values\colors.xml and change:
Code:
    <color name="status_bar_recents_app_label_color">[B][COLOR="Red"]#ffffffff[/COLOR][/B]</color>
to:
Code:
    <color name="status_bar_recents_app_label_color">[B][COLOR="Blue"]#ff555555[/COLOR][/B]</color>
5. Go to SystemUI\res\values\drawables.xml and change:
Code:
    <item type="drawable" name="status_bar_recents_app_thumbnail_background">[B][COLOR="Red"]#88000000[/COLOR][/B]</item>
to:
Code:
    <item type="drawable" name="status_bar_recents_app_thumbnail_background">[B][COLOR="Blue"]#ffe0e0e0[/COLOR][/B]</item>
6. Recompile your finished SystemUI.apk

B) framework-res.apk
1. Decompile framework-res.apk by APK-Multi Tool
2. Go to framework-res\res\values\dimens.xml and change thumbnail height and width size to:
Code:
    <dimen name="thumbnail_height">160.0dip</dimen>
Code:
    <dimen name="thumbnail_width">240.0dip</dimen>
3. Recompile your finished framework-res.apk

and that's it :laugh: ... Enjoy

N.B: You can use your own Recent window, just name it nyandroid11 and copy it to SystemUI\res\drawable-nodpi

For people who want to install the pre-made mod, I made 2 flashable files according to where SystemUI is located inside your installed ROM


Download link:
| [system] Framed Recent app mod.zip |
(MD5Checksum: edfec47e818f6d9a01f81ba2cceb521d)

| [preload] Framed Recent app mod.zip |
(MD5Checksum: 7c3e1fbdd0137564151054698561610c)


N.B: These files in flashable zip are extracted from my GloryROM v4.5 which is based on ThaiDai multi-languge ROM from official JB ROMs (XXLSZ, DDLSC, JPLSB, DXLSE... etc). Wth this pre-made flashable files, you will have stock status bar and stock battery looking.. The only extra you will have is lock and recent apps button in notification panel.. So flash on your own risk​
