Open Paint on Windows and color it all black. Save it as a bmp. Upload it to your phone and set it as wallpaper. Its the easiest solution.

Lets face it, if you are battery conservative a black background/wallpaper is much better anyway.

Lol. Just apply raubkatze's mod: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1995320 . If you want to do it yourself and know about decompiling/compiling apk's: systemui.apk -> drawables.xml -> <item type="drawable" name="notification_number_text_color">#ffffffff</item>

For those having the issues with SMS not being threaded into a proper conversation, how are your numbers saved. I've only heard of this issue happening in the AOSP Messaging app, which looks awesome and has quick reply built into the notifications bar, yet messages are not threaded which is a shame. Apparently, saving numbers with the international code (UK for example would be +44 7777777777) fixes the issue with AOSP messaging. Stock messaging app didn't recognise my phone numbers after I put international codes, eventually I just moved on to GoSMS and changed my numbers back to (Example: 07777777777) using number fixer.

The AOSP Messaging app is actually fine. Used it on Jellybam and Paranoid ROM.
Its always Sammy roms that I have this problem on??

Used this rom extensively today and didn't come across any bugs. And thanks for providing an option for stock theme :)

One thing I noticed though is that charging seems a little slow, although that's going to be down to my kernel right (Siyah 1.8.4)?

To shed some light on the sms threading issue:

Its a sammy thing. It will happen on all roms based on sammy jb. It's not the messaging app, it's the rom.
Do a search. A whole bunch of posts about this topic in the early jb leaks. Sammy have ****ed up somewhere and it is a sammy based rom thing.

It should not happen with new messages, but only if you restore messages, especially if you come from aosp rom. I had sammy jb running fine, I backed up messages and restored on cm10, everything still fine. I again backed up and restored to a sammy rom, and bam: threading issues. If I again back up these and restore to an aosp rom everything will be fine again (because aosp threads properly). But restoring to sammy will give the issue. Some people have workarounds with changing numbers and more, but i have identical numbers still not threading properly. Again, only when restoring, and only on sammy roms

I suggest run with an aosp rom or clear all messages on your sammy rom and go from there. You will most likely not see threading issues if you start with "clean slates" on a sammy rom and don't swap to aosp and back.

To sum up: it's not this rom's fault, it's all samsung roms fault. Blame Samsung.

Hmmm this sounds right.
My brother doesn't have issues since his phone has always been on Sammy ROMs but I'm switching between that and CM10.

O well, I guess I'll have to delete all my texts/sexts :D and start fresh.

Thanks

Do you have the stock samsung keyboard? The one i downloaded didnt appear in options

Did you check the permissions on the apk that is getting restored to /system/app? Does the apk exist?

Hmmm this sounds right.

I constantly switch between CM10 and Sammy, i never had a prob on sammy nor CM. Im still clueless. Ive had CM9, CM10, CM10.1 and LiquidSmooth on this phone, none had your 'threading' bug.

    HyperLight 1.4.1 Released

    Considering the amount of time available, I'm doing a non-Aroma release for 1.4. It's built on the latest XXELKC Official firmware from Samsung. All the usual tweaks are there. Seeing the responses regarding the theme, there is a normal (250MB) and a themed (238MB) version.

    Info
    - XXELKC Base
    - 23 Toggles
    - Loud Volume
    - Modified brightness
    - Multiwindows (full control by LegendK95)
    - Pop-Up browser
    - Startup tweaks (zipalign, SQlite defrag)
    - Build.prop tweaks (usual Hyper** series)
    - All wanamlite mods

    Themed:
    - Optimized system files
    - HyperNote theme
    - Grey add-ons

    Downloads

    Wuala or Dev-Host

    Thanks again for your support! These reactions and the amount of download of the ROM reminds me that a new version has to be made. Today and tomorrow are very big (and busy) days for me privately, so probably this weekend will be HyperLight time again.
    12
    You people really know how to brighten someone's day. Again I appreciate your responses. Been busy and had some annoying issues with the script. Therefore release is delayed a bit, but I'm happy to offer you the release candidate for HyperLight 1.2. Based on XXDLJ4, the ROM is updated and issues like transparency are fixed and the home button doesn't close apps when the screen is turned off. But there are other major changes due to the new aroma installer. Offering one download file, you can still select your flavour, kernel and basic tweaks like Supercharger and BestMultitasking.

    The aroma config was built with support from Turkbey and wanam, who should receive credits for it. You can choose wipe options (under testing) and an optional EFS backup. Also, the most requested add-ons are added in the zip, so you don't have to install seperate zip files anymore. All this results in a larger ZIP (~500MB) but if you choose your desired flavour and install no add-ons, you'll end up with a stripped, lightweight ROM.

    New are the Advanced tweaks based on PimpMyRom by Androguide.fr, I've preselected some tweaks but feel free to choose your own. Watch it with the multitasking/memory tuning tweaks as they might interfere with SuperCharger or BestMultiTasking. Also you can select the best config for GPS based on uour country, credits again go to Androguide.fr.

    Finally, I've added some theme options with support from raubkatze. Some of his mods like grey central clock, transparant pull down, grey icons are integrated in the ROM. Nothing is forced, you can also choose to use stock wanamlite look or add your own theme, e.g. Android-GX or JKay Deluxe.

    Replies are welcome, but please do a full wipe/factory reset when experiencing FC's. I've tested upgrading from 1.1 and clean install, it can happen that upgrading from older versions like 0.8 results in boot loops of FC's. If that's the case, a full wipe should fix it. Special thanks to Nexx for beta testing!

    1.2 RC: http://d-h.st/92t
