Hey everyone,

I've recently stumbled upon a thread here showing how to get WP7-esque multitasking on the Nexus S running 4.0.3 (download link here) I'm not a developer or themer by any means, so I was wondering if any of the talented themers out there could help me out and make a flashable zip for AOKP milestone 4 with this mod.

The System UI.apk and framework-res.apk for AOKP milestone 4 (GSM) are uploaded below


SystemUI.apk : here

framework-res.apk : here

Thanks so much, and any help is appreciated.

for AOKP milestone 4

here is my test version for AOKP milestone 4.

download : http://www.mediafire.com/?xm121jbt897lf0d
and restore : http://www.mediafire.com/?fqerxel0icjtihj

flash in recovery and select [Horizontal recents window] in Settings - ROM Control - General UI

i used same values to wvga(nexus s) device's mod so maybe there are some layout problems. (for example, app label position is weird..)

if someone flashed this test version, please upload screenshot. maybe there are things to fix..

I can change the text position for the gnex...but can you tell me exactly how to re compile the apk? I used apktool and decompiled it...modified it...then recompiled it...then adb pushed it to my phone. (both files)...it bootloops..what am i doing wrong?

EDIT:i always get "an error occured please check the log" or something like that when using apkmanager..it doesn't work at all with apktool

EDIT: the above one is only for the framework-res.apk

---------- Post added at 03:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:11 PM ----------

Here is a screenshot of the error...followed all the directions...this happens even when i don't change anything...just decompile and recompile.

The blood bath known as Chicago IL.
You prolly need to fix all the errors that occur in every plurals.xml in (line 79). Look for EVERY plurals.xml in every values folder go to line 79 of eah and add a second %.

before. <item quantity="other">%d of %d</item>
after. <item quantity="other">%d of %%d</item>


edit: just saw your log, doesn't appear to be what I'm mentioning.


good day.

works great. Im more of a fan of a plain black background but the blue isnt too bad. either way great mod. Only issue i see is it doesnt work in landscape. Thanks again!

EDIT: And BTW I tested on CDMA Galaxy Nexus on AOKP M4 and works fine. No issues besides the afore mentioned landscape issue.

Awesome! This worked perfectly :)
There's literally nothing to fix :D
And looks amazing ;D
Hopefully this encourages more themes for the Multitasking interface :)

This is nice. Too bad it breaks themes tho. Would love to have this + theme at the same time. Would it be up to the themers to implement this in their themes or is it simple enough to do myself?

Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using XDA

You guys know there's a thanks button right? :p (especially to evilisto - he's the main man behind this)

And @chlehqls, I think that's what ezcats is working on right now :)

Also, updated OP with test 2 (thanks evilisto)

Im sort of a newb at theme and apktool. i also tried to use apk multitool to enable landscape while also changing the background to a darker black/gray color. I just can not get this recompiled for the life of me. I zipped the decompiled apk so if anyone can recompile and post here that would be cool =)

EDIT: Forgot to post the link -_- lol here it is http://www.box.com/s/0b2c2e053c5d8d1f2ba1 its a zipped file of the decompiled apk. all somebody needs to do is recompile it and it should be good to push to /system/app.
