Ladies & gentlemen,

this is for everyone, who still prefers froyo, because it is stable, mostly bug-free (exception: scroll-bug) and has a long battery-life.
I tried a few GB-roms and CM9, but they all have issues, so I reverted back to froyo.

The sad thing is: if you once tried ICS, Froyo looks very frumpy compared to it.

Froyo has not a Theme-Chooser, so I decided to pretty up some parts of the base-rom by myself.
It will not be a one-to-one ICS copy, but rather something similar.

I started with this Froyo 2.2.2 rom as base: Light-v2 by kpbotbot

In the /system/framework - folder I modified the following files:

framework-res.apk
(icons, colors, power-menu)

android.policy.jar
(power-menu)

services.jar
(white font for the date in the notification bar)

lge-res.apk
(notification toggle buttons and their background, Carrier background and font color)

In the /system/app - folder I modified this files:

Browser.apk
Calendar.apk
CameraApp.apk
com.google.android.gm.apk [gmail]
Contacts.apk
DeskClock.apk
Mms.apk
PackageInstaller.apk
Phone.apk
Settings.apk

Here are the changes mostly done for the launcher icon and the menu icons. The important ones for the look of the dialer are the Phone.apk and the Contacts.apk.
By the way, I hate *.pro files.


Other used apps:

Launcher: Holo Launcher
Keyboard: IceCream Sandwich-ICS Keyboard
Clock Widget: Minimalistic Text
Extra Notification Toggles: Notification Toggle

If you want to use a 2.2.* rom with the new baseband, you will need this files:

Thank you, community for the tools and tutorials and thanks to simililar projects for sharing. Excuse my grammar ;)

Update (27. Oct. 2012)

I've replaced the files with an All-In-One flashable Zip for your Recovery.
It's my first selfmade flashable zip, so be carefully ;) (tested it with TWRP-Recovery)
It includes all above + the libs for the new baseband.


Edit:
If you get bootloops with this zip, try this one:

Even tho this is just a theme, and I am not a fan, and I admit I will never try this ROM (real ICS is much cooler:cool:), it is nice to know people still use 2-year old absolete ROMs:D

Sent from my LG-P500

Hello. There are 2 possibilities.

  1. You rename the *.png to *.pro. Then open the APK in an archive manager (7zip, WinZip) and drag the file in there to replace the old one. With this workaround it is possible, that you will get a certificate error. See logcat if the app force closes. But in the most cases it will work.
  2. Decompile the APK with your favourite tool. Then replace the *.pro files with *.png files without renaming. Take care of the *.9.png files, because in the decompiled apk the "9" is not visible. You will see them if you open the apk in 7zip. In the end you have to recompile the APK.

Hopefully I could help.
