Hi, everyone... I notice that people dont like Sonnysekhon's ICS v1.5 theme becuz of the deskclock time cant be seen... But no worries anymore!

ZduneX25 has actually implent a fix for this since his first meizu theme and miui theme released... So im here to tell u more... Every DeskClock is universal for certain devices like:

Droid X Motoblur Alarm deskclock can be usable on the LG Optimus One P500 CyanogenMod 7.1...

Get it?

But this time i only release for the hdpi... Test it and give feedback! If u like it, press thanks!

Remember! To test this u need to use a theme with stable image background or transparency...

Credits to ZDuneX25

Ok guys, this deskclock.apk i uploading is universal, backup ur original...

Download

(RECOMMENDED TO USE ON CM NIGHTLIES!)

And here it is! Thanks to Z25! Anyone up to create a flashable zip?

I'm curious to know what edit/s have to be made for this. :) I use Alarm Clock Plus but it also suffers the same problem as deskclock. So I'll probably mod and resign it to fix it for me.

Thanks for this btw!

Edit: after a bit of playing around, I found this... is the /transparent the only change made? I compared xmls and saw this difference so far :)
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<selector
  xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item android:state_pressed="false" android:drawable="@android:color/transparent" />
    <item android:state_pressed="true" android:drawable="@drawable/list_selector_background_pressed" />
</selector>

4. Set permission to 644 (The picture is just for illustration)

If I replace the DeskClock.apk on the rom .zip I use before installation ... Do I still need to do Step 4 permission to 644 or can that be ignored if installing this .apk straight from rom flash???

U can ask someone or a dev to add this into rom and no u cant install like a normal apk cuz this is a system app...

Why don't you just try it? People are far too afraid of doing things themselves these days

Dax have you thought about making this applicable via metamorph? It could be done on the fly..

Of course I am assuming this is the same fix that just replaces a layout.xml file in the apk

    C:\android>cd platform-tools

    C:\android\platform-tools>adb remount
    remount succeeded

    C:\android\platform-tools>adb push DeskClock.apk /system/app
    1284 KB/s (273537 bytes in 0.208s)

    and you don't even need to reboot

    @DaxElectro there will be update for your thread :p I modded Mms.apk, Talk.apk and Settings.apk

    You know that am working on ICS theme and I use dark poups, so I had to make text on those windows light, but cm team used too global colors..

    Anyway I fixed it I replaced black text with:
    Mms - emotions menu text color
    Settings - widget picker text color

    textAppearanceLargeInverse ;) it's black for normal themes and now now you can make it white for dark themes like mine ICS :) just redirect:

    from
    <style name="TextAppearance.Large.Inverse" parent="@android:style/TextAppearance.Large">
    <item name="android:textColor">?android:textColorPrimaryInverse</item>
    <item name="android:textColorHint">?android:textColorHintInverse</item>
    </style>
    to
    <style name="TextAppearance.Large.Inverse" parent="@android:style/TextAppearance.Large">
    <item name="android:textColor">#ffffffff</item>
    <item name="android:textColorHint">?android:textColorHintInverse</item>
    </style>

    result (I themed it using theme chooser) it was impossible to theme it with theme chooser before ;):

    Try this with metamorph..You may get a fc on deskclock but either just trying again or worse case rebooting will work.
