I want to take a snapshot recovery 768_black.zip theme. I found all the records in the file ui.xml
<!--object type="action">
<touch key="power+voldown" />
<action function="screenshot"/>
and changed
<object type="action">
<touch key="power+voldown" />
<action function="screenshot"/>
but still does not work :(
Anyone know why?

Anyone know why?

Because the recovery doesn't support it yet. You'll have to wait till the next update, or use the MultiRom recovery, which has this feature included already.

It's commented out for a reason... [emoji6]


@mrtur, in the meantime you can try this tool, I've used it with the Nexus 5/7. It's not as convenient but does the trick.

I don't understand, what exactly went wrong?

You use multiroman and the option is gone from the theme?
You don't use multirom but you have the option?

And then i rebbot to recovery but in advance menu there is now multirom option.

The multirom theme has the multirom button on the main menu, not in advanced (that's the stock theme).

Please clarify. Also, talk to the dev of the app, I have no idea what his app downloads from where. If he mirrors my downloads for his app, he may have swapped some themes accidentally.

    Holofied TWRP Repacks

    Updated - Oct 08, 2013 (08/10/2013)
    Info - TWRP + Holofied Theme & Curtains 24/09/13


    I've integrated the TWRP stock .img, with the Holofied Theme and Curtain.
    And, as a bonus, I've added a special Improved Stock version, with a better holo-ish curtain, to match any theme.

    Download, flash and Enjoy! :D :good:

    Download Links: {repacked '.img' files}

    How to Use:

    On device:
    You can use any one of these two free apps, from the Playstore to flash a .img, without a reboot or a computer. {requires root}
    1. Recovery Tools - Need Help?
    2. Flashify - Need Help?

    { Use the 'Need Help?' links, which take you to their respective xda support threads, if you encounter any problems/bugs while using these tools}
    { Also, apparently, these tools may not work on CM-based ROMs. I have not tested this. In that case, preferably, you should manually flash them, following the steps I've provided below }

    On computer:
    In command prompt,

    In system,
    adb reboot bootloader
    In bootloader,

    To Flash:
    fastboot flash recovery *.img

    To Test:
    4.2.2 -
    fastboot boot *.img
    4.3 -
    fastboot -c "lge.kcal=0|0|0|x" boot *.img


    Note - These .imgs are compatible with the Nexus 4, only!
    Disclaimer - Flash at your own risk! I'm not responsible for anything that happens...
    Reassurance - I have personally tested all the files I've provided, on my Nexus 4. :)

    Credits - Thanks to @z31s1g for the beautiful themes and curtains, @osm0sis for the great .img editing tool, TWRP for the awesome recovery, and Dev-Host for the fast, reliable file hosting! :)


    What's the difference between the dark and the dark_minimal theme?

    The minimal themes only have one highlight color (dark holo blue).
    The main advantage of the minimal themes is their reduced boot time compared to the multicolor versions.
    They're ment to be used as base for porting or creating other single color versions.

    Can I use this theme on my *devicename*?

    Most likely yes. The themes can be used on any device with the screen resolution the filename of the theme suggests.
    For example, the "1080_*variant*.zip" can be used on any FullHD device.

    When I reboot to recovery, the theme isn't applied. Any ideas?

    This is most likeley due to wrong naming of the theme folder or the ui.zip.
    Make sure the folder is named "theme", without capital letters.
    Also check if you accidentally renamed the downloaded zip to "ui.zip.zip" (common pitfall when renaming the zip in windows explorer).

    When I reboot to recovery, I get a "recovery bootloop". Is my phone broken?

    Nope, this is most likeley due to a bad download.
    Please download the theme again using another browser or app. For instance, ES File Explorer's build-in downloader has proven to be unreliable for the dropbox links I provide.

    I like what you did there, but can I has more/other colorz?

    Colors are a matter of personal preferrence. I try to keep the themes neutral, and the colors used are (mostly) in accordance with android design guidelines.
    For other colors, you'll have to modify the theme yourself. I will gladly provide the source file for the images to everyone interested.

    Will you make a dark/black Play theme?

    No, because I don't want to maintain more versions of the theme. But everybody is welcome to contribute to the thread...

    Will you help me to port my favourite other theme to device XY?

    No. But this guide provides insight on how you can do it.


    What version of TWRP is the repack?

    Always the latest available for a certain device.
    As I don't keep track of all TWRP threads, please remind me if there was an update for your device.

    I'd like a repack for *devicename*, how do I make one?
    1. Download and unpack Android Image Kitchen.
    2. Unpack the zip.
    3. Download the zip containing the custom curtains (splash images).
    4. Get the recovery image you want to modify from the TWRP download site.
    5. Copy the recovery image to the Image Kitchen folder.
    6. In windows explorer, drag & drop the recovery image on the "unpackimg.bat".
      Unpacking will create two new folders (ramdisk and split_image).
    7. Rename the splash of your choice to "curtain.jpg" and drop it into /ramdisk/res/images.
    8. Hit "repackimg.bat".
      This will create a "image-new.img", which you can then flash away using your preferred method.
    My preferred method for installing the recovery is GooManager, so how do I flash this .img thing?
    • Use the theme. It now supports direct image flashing from the install page.
    • Via Fastboot. Most useful to know how to (especially in case things go sideways).
    • Via app. For a variety of devices, Flashify has proven to be a good app for flashing recovery images. It's under (very) active development and I highly recommend to give it a try.
    • Alternative apps (can be device specific): SGS4 Flasher, ... (please help me to populate this part)

    1. Download this flashable zip.
    2. Flash the zip in recovery.
      It will copy the flashable Aroma FM package to \TWRP\aromafm.
    3. Go to "settings" and tick the option to use Aroma FM.
    4. Profit.
