Want to change status bar clock & background color/transparency?
Download TweakBox for Xposed Framework

NOTES:

Everything is installed as a normal APK

SCREENSHOTS:


CHANGELOG:
Code:
08.06.2013:
- Test and Release versions for SII (I9000G)

06.15.2013_v0.1T:
- Testing versions for: S Advance (GT-I9070) and SIII Mini (GT-I8190)

Initial Release:
- Support for Ace 2 (GT-I8160)

PORTING:
Step 1:
Download framework files: 1.apk | 127.apk

Step 2:
Install framework files
Code:
On Windows, you can find them in: C:\Users\<username>\apktool\framework\...

Or install them using apktool, enter this on your terminal or command prompt:
apktool install-framework 1.apk
apktool install-framework 127.apk
Make sure they are named correctly otherwise the theme will not decompile.

Step 3:
Decompile I8160.apk. (If you're porting this theme, I assume you know how to do this)

Step 4:
Install YOUR PHONE'S framework files:
Code:
framework-res.apk -> 1.apk
SystemUI.apk -> 127.apk
Make sure BOTH files are there otherwise the theme will not recompile.

Step 5:
Recompile the theme. (If you're porting this theme, I assume you know how to do this)

Step 6:
Install and test the theme. Report any problems here.

TROUBLESHOOTING:
Problem: Something missing?
Solution: Send me framework-res.apk / SystemUI.apk

Problem: Bootloop?
Solution: Boot to recovery mode and flash Xposed Disabler

Problem: Force Closes?
Solution: Send me so I can match the theme.

Problem: Does not work on your Device?
Solution: Send me your files and I'll make it happen.

Problem: "Application not Installed"
Solution: Install this app. Sometimes I forget to re-sign the app after modding any key will do I use testkey.​

On pure vanilla v5 after apply statusbar force close ;)
Hm. just as I thought. Send my your systemui and framework-res I'll merge the layouts for S-Advance and restrict S Advance from using Ace II's layouts. Try deleting all layout folders inside the apk using 7zip/winRAR.. try to see if the theme will still apply.

The lockscreen really acts that way since it was only images of the lock icons that were changed. Try doing the same without the mod and you'll see. The lockscreen images were not really made to have more frames (thus, the "lag") but "adding frames" makes the animation/effect significantly shorter.

When I soft rebooted my phone after installing applying the s4 theme i get bootloop. Is there another alternative rather than erasing the layout folder? Because I really want to have the theme in 100%.

Get an HDPI device. Nah just kidding. I'll take resources from GS4 directly.. (is there a big diff in resolution?)

I'll need framework-res and systemui from your note 2 too.
