Hybrid Properties – DPI / Layout / Colors

Settings / Hybrid Properties / (swipe right)

Interface – Here you can define your workspace layout and assign global properties (Phone UI / Phablet UI / Tablet UI).
Apps that have been set up manually will override global properties. These are simply preset options available to the user as a base.

Apps – Define individual properties to customize how the app displays. These settings apply only to the selected app.

Lock Screen - The lock screen is controlled by the "Android System" app. Make changes to this app to control DPI, Layout and Color.

Apps - Size vs Layout
Size allows you to change the DPI of the selected app
Layout changes the outlook of the app by defining which screen size it should use (changes may be slight or drastic, this is up to the app)
When layout is adjusted, sometimes you may have to adjust the size to make sure items fit neatly.

Colors
Settings - Hybrid Properties - Interface - GLOBAL COLOR (enable)
For every app installed (system apps & user app) you can set individual colors for the status bar and navigation bar. This can be done globally or on a per app basis. In order to enable hybrid colors you MUST enable per app color

Color - Transparent Status bar/Navigation bar
Transparency for both the status bar an nav bar should be set only on the launcher (default launcher or installed launcher of choice). Setting transparency on some individual apps will return "garbage" as apps don't draw under the status and nav bar. It's best to set a solid color for the status bar or nav bar in individual apps.

Color - PIE Colors
PIE color is based on status icon color, navigation glow color and navigation button color.

Tools
Reset properties
Backup preferences
Restore Preferences
Delete Backup
Expert Mode – this gives you deeper control over the hybrid engine. Options included are overall DPI and UI settings and extra options per-app.
Once expert mode is selected, under the interface option you would now have access to the lockscreen slider and Global Apps control.
The lockscreen slider allows you to change the DPI of your lockscreen, while the global apps section allows you to change the settings for all system apps or user app at once.

On a per-app bases you now have an extra menu with three options when expert mode is enabled (Expand / Force / Large)

Expand – displays app in full screen mode
Force – force scaling through other hosts such as widgets
Large – Force app to display as though it were displaying for a large tablet

I think everyone pretty much understands Expand.

Force
In short, it allows widgets to succumb to hybrid properties.
Widgets depend on the launcher to define its size/layout parameters. So normally, even if you setup an app to follow a custom layout, the widget ignores these scaling values and uses its default settings as dictated by the launcher. Force allows you to override this system and the hybrid values of the app would be forced on to the widget.
Use this feature cautiously and enable it only if you need it.

Large
Sometimes, changing the layout of an app to Tablet UI isn't enough to actually change the layout of the app. For such apps, enable the large screen option to see the difference.
For some apps, enabling Large give it a whole new layout, additional to the available layout options.
Again, use this option only if needed.

Settings – Sound
Volume panel style - Single / Expandable / Expanded / None
Quiet Hours – Configure hours the device should be silent
Volume rocker music controls - long press volume control to seek tracks
Volume rocker wake - turns screen on when volume is pressed

Settings – More
NFC Polling modes (screen off / screen on, locked / screen on, unlocked (default))

Phone - Settings - Blacklist - (Enable Blacklist)

Expanded Desktop Mode (Full Screen Pie Mode)
Long press the power button and select Full Screen (PIE) – this removes your status bar and navigation bar and activates the PIE controls. All screen real estate is utilized without stretching or distorting your homescreen.
The stock Paranoid Android launcher has the option to use a pinch gesture to toggle this mode.
There is also a quick setting PIE tile to toggle PIE mode

- To activate PIE without activating Full Screen mode (PIE and status bar at the same time), you need to set your nav bar to 0%. Do this by going into
Settings -> Hybrid Properties -> (swipe right) -> Interface -> (slide nav bar to 0%).
Because the status bar is still visible, PIE will not show status information when activated like this as such information would be redundant.

Paranoid Android - Main Features

PIE is an unobtrusive replacement for the stock on-screen navigation buttons. It stays hidden off-screen, only to be brought to life by a predefined gesture. PIE can be manifested on all four sides of the devices.
PIE isn't just about a new navigation experience, either – it also offers customizable colors, status information (like clock, date, et cetera), notifications, and toggles. One nice thing about PIE is that it's dynamic, meaning its size will be defined by the device's dpi; in other words, you won't see a stretched phone UI on a tablet.

Hybrid Mode
This Rom features true Hybrid Mode… it lets you scale and project every app, every widget, even system components individually. Remember, android is modular, everything is an app (Lockscreen, navigation bar, dialogs, popups, keyboards, widgets and your regular apps of course).

Apps have the capability to switch into various designs or layouts according to the device they run on. This can result in a complete new experience as many apps will transform to the better.

For every element that you like, chose a mode (Phone UI, Phablet UI, Tablet UI) and/or a size. Regardless of the mode selected, you are 100% independent of the system DPI which runs nicely in whatever value it has been assigned to.

You do not need to boot your phone into a certain DPI. Neither will most of the changes you apply require a reboot.

What is DPI?
Dots Per Inch. As the name defines, DPI is the number of dots per inch of a screen.
In PA, we can modify DPI of any & every app or service independently.

Lower DPI value, would cause a general shrinkage, & higher DPI value, would cause the app to get bigger.

In general, we have a few standard DPI values:
xHDPI: 320 DPI | HDPI: 240 DPI | MDPI: 160 DPI | LDPI: 120 DPI

Per App Color
Part of the Hybrid Engine allows you to color the status bar and navigation bar for individual apps. This completely transforms the user interface and allows for customization on a completely different level.

HALO (2.0)

What this update brings...
Version 2.0 of HALO retains all the original functionality of HALO as described below, with the added bonus of
1. The actual notification is displayed as opposed to just the notification text
2. As a result of point 1, some apps can provide you with a "richer" notification experience (notification widgets).

The most common use of notification widgets would be found in music apps, however, any app can create this type of notification.

Remember, this is dependent on the app itself. HALO does not control this behavior and is not responsible for creating the widget.

As long as the feature is supported by the app however, it can be displayed in HALO without the need for any additional HALO configurations.

These notification widgets can be interacted with via multi-touch. One touch to drag HALO and hold the notification on screen, the second to select an option in the notification widget.

Activation
Pull down (status bar) or swipe up (PIE) the notification shade, tap HALO icon

NOTE:
Animator duration scale must be turned on, at least .5x or higher (Don't know what this is, don't touch it)

Deactivation
Reverse HALO Checked* - Double tap HALO, hold on second tap and drag over red X
Reverse HALO Unchecked* - Tap and drag HALO over the red X

*Reverse HALO option: Settings - Toolbars - Reverse HALO

Move HALO - Same as deactivate but DO NOT place over the red X. Instead, drag to screen location you would like HALO to dock at.

Settings - Toolbars - (HALO)

HALO Policy - Choose either blacklist or white list
Blacklist - select the apps that WILL NOT appear in HALO
Whitelist - select the apps that WILL appear in HALO

Hide HALO after activity - HALO will appear for incoming tasks and scroll out of sight after a short while.

Reverse HALO - Swap the task switching and moving gestures

Re-size HALO - Select between predefined HALO sizes

Pause Active App - When opening an app in HALO, the underlying/active app will be paused

Gestures
Swipe Up (marker 1) - Dismiss Notification
(persistent notification CANNOT be dismissed - just like your status bar)

Swipe Up (marker 2) - Dismiss All Notifications

Swipe Down (marker 1) - Hide HALO
(HALO immediately goes into hidden state, bypassing normal hide delay)

Swipe Down (marker 2) - Silence HALO (New notifications will not cause HALO to pop-up until the user "wakes" HALO)

Swipe Left/Right - Swiping away from HALO allows you to scroll through notifications (if multiple notifications exist).

nice work, but an important Q: what device tree and what kernel are you using?
please put this information into your OP for being fully GPL compliant ;) you might wanna take a look at this ;)

Yes, you are completely right. Thanks I'll update it. Device and kernel tree are the ones from official CM.

Could just resist and flashed :D
About this advanced settings FC's , it is normal for non official PA. I have the same on Galaxytab 7.0, maybe it contains device specific settings I don't know :D
But I found serious bug... My external SDcard is not detected :/

EDIT: Wait !! It is mounted on /storage/sdcard1 , but just doesn't show up normally with X-plore like it did on 4.2.2

EDIT1: Bug with busybox and Xposed, same as in SlimBean 4.3 by Demetris, Xposed could not be installed because of busybox not being found.

well, this "bug" should not be that big of a problem ;) OP should easily be able to fix the mountpoints inside the ramdisk ;)

(if not, just PM me ;) )

the backlight hardware button doesn't light off, and i can't find the setting to configure the timeout. another thing is, can you disable the soft navigation by default? kind of redundant, and the hardware button light not switching off bug just made it twice more annoying. :p

@FunkyRasta Can you be more specific? I belive that external SDcard is mounted on /storage/sdcard1 by default on CM 10.2. It shouldn't be much of a deal to change it, however I don't want to deviate from CM or PA standard is it's not really neccessary, where do you think external SD should be mounted?

EDIT1: Bug with busybox and Xposed, same as in SlimBean 4.3 by Demetris, Xposed could not be installed because of busybox not being found.

No problem here mate, check the screenshots below.

Please make sure you followed procedure to install Xposed on 4.3
How to install Xposed on 4.3 based ROMs:
1. Install XposedInstaller_2.1.4.apk DON'T USE IT
2. Reboot to recovery and flash cwm-Xposed.JB4.3.Framework.Installer.zip
3. Reboot and use Xposed Installer to enable modules, etc.

the backlight hardware button doesn't light off, and i can't find the setting to configure the timeout. another thing is, can you disable the soft navigation by default? kind of redundant, and the hardware button light not switching off bug just made it twice more annoying. :p

@gingerboy92

I hope to introduce backlight hardware buttons control in next build, should be ready until the weekend.

Soft keys can be disable by setting navbar height to 0, tt will be defaulted in next build.

Also I had problems with HybridEngine and HybridProperties not remembering per app DPI and Layout settings :/ Now flashed SlimBean, I miss that rom ;)

Also no problems here, can anyone else confirm this?

About these problems that were reported.
Sure card is mounted right, it wasn't just showing in Xplore ;)
And about hybrid engine, perhaps I just needed reinstall, because no users reported it and you ;)
Gonna comeback to PA as soon as I set up dual boot ;)
