G2 Skin Tweaks
N.B. This might be outdated now, and it's not being worked on anymore as I sold my G2.
Description

Provides some simple tweaks to the stock LG G2 skin. Made with Android 4.4.2, older versions are not guaranteed to work!

Features (as of 1.6):

General:
- Change the LG Switch/Toggle to a LG CheckBox
- Custom opacity in Recents List
- Hide dividers in Settings
- Slightly more AOSP like lockscreen patterns

LG Launcher:
- Shortcut to Applications when clicking the icon in App Info popup

LG Messenger:
- Square & Hangouts bubbles
- Custom color & transparency for any bubble
- Custom text color
- Custom background for conversation list
- Enable smaller font size when pinch zooming
- Keep screen off on new SMS/MMS

I gladly take request, though I'm very new to the Android programming so I might not be capable.

Great work!
I'm updating to 4.4.2 just for this, as I hate those horrible switches.
Edit: nevermind, i confirm it works also on 4.2.2, international version.

It's possible for you to add also the stock Android style for switches?

Is there any chance to implement a way to sort photos by name in gallery instead of date? I started to really like the stock gallery it but it only works as photo gallery it's just useless as an image picker so I have to keep quickpic. I'm trying keep the installed apps minimum and it bugs the hell out of me to keep an alternative gallery just to pick images. Oh great work by the way.

I'll look into it. Great idea!

Hello!
I've a problem with the 1.2 update,
Font size not applied, it's worked well with the version 1.1!
I use stock KitKat D80220C rom

Hmm... Rebooting is the first things I would try, if you haven't already. Then I would try to set it to the highest size just to make sure. And if none of those help, check out the Xposed log. It can be accessed from the Xposed Installer. Look for any error messages. then let me know.

Wierd. Would you mind running a custom version with debugging enabled? That way I can know exactly where it fails, if you send my the log again.

Hi! Thanks, I really hate those switches. Now, if you could only get rid of those dividers and change the settings font to something lighter, it would actually start looking nice :D
I agree with the guy further up though, anything that looks like aosp is a big upgrade :)

You're running the Sprint version right? Only reason I can think of is that the Sprint messaging app is a little different. Do you know how to get system apks? If you do, can you send me your LGMessage.apk?

Just an idea : maybe you could add an option for changing the primary background and the font color/size in the main screen of the SMS app.
(see screen in attached screeshot).
Best regards.

I've been working a little slow on this, sorry about that. This is the changelog for next version:

Code:
Changelog
- Fix for Sprint version
- Added Settings, with a few options for power LED
- Minor cosmetic changes
- Removed font size dialog, replace with option below
- Added option to enable lower font size for Messenger app, both in conversation window & conversation preview list
- Added option to set top & bottom text color in conversation preview list

I've written down all the requests, so if your request is not above you're not being ignored. It's just not done yet. ;)

Im so glad I chanced upon your module man. I hate the big fonts and the "fun" themes inside the LG SMS app. Thank you @AlexxEG ! And really, excellent work!

Tapatalking with my LG G2

Yeah, I hate them too. :S Thank you! I'm glad you like it.

    About G2 AOSP Skin:

    I'm currently working on the reboot/power menu (see img). I'm trying the remove the title "bar", which has proven quite difficult, but I'm getting close I think. I've also decided to skip things that can be replaced, i.e. LG Messenger app, or at least do them last.

    I also wanna do white accent, but that comes later.

    About G2 Skin Tweaks:

    Only new thing is AOSP like pattern dots for lockscreen (also see img). I don't really have anymore requests, the ones that hasn't been made yet is either because I forgot them, though I doubt it cause I write them down, or because they're simply too difficult to make at the moment.

    Screenshots (excuse the font, I'm experimenting :p):

    Work fine on cloudypro 2.2 :)
    I have a request if you can make an holo white version with black/grey icons ?

    Thank for your work.

    Envoyé de mon LG-D802 en utilisant Tapatalk

    I'm not sure there is icons for that, and anything I would make wouldn't look good enough. We'll see, there might be.

    I'd like to make a request for G2 skin tweaks... Apart from the preloaded bubble colors, is there a possibility to add a custom slot where the user can type in the hex code for the color he wishes?

    It doesn't need to support transparency, but basically, I'm looking for some lighter color options for my bubble. :)

    Good idea, writing it down. Thanks!

    @AlexxEG, can you pls add an option to have shortcuy of your mod in the app drawer instead of in the home screen. Thanks!

    I'm not sure how to make a option for it though. I'll probably just make it appear in the app drawer and people can use their own launcher to remove it if they want. :)

    New version of G2 AOSP Skin available, adds the option for AOSP power menu: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mz4fqnnp8gbjy64/G2_AOSP_Skin.apk (BETA! I don't have any problems on D802, but there can be issues on other versions.)
