Stock notification icons + 'CRT' screen off effect.

19 posts in this topic

If you'd like the 'stock' notification icons on your GSII and the stock Gingerbread 'screen off' effect, I've tweaked some files and attached them below. I recommend rooting with my insecure image first... this is tested only on XWKDD currently.

To install, unzip the file, ensure you have your device connected and adb installed then:

adb remount
adb shell stop
adb push framework-res.apk /system/framework/
adb push SystemUI.apk /system/app/
adb reboot[/code]

Simple as that!

  • DOWNLOAD (Mediafire Pro) - MD5: 87459e3228ed992322d6a81c18454062

Enjoy! :unsure:

Working fine here, thanks Paul

The 'stock' icons from Gingerbread are green for cell and wifi signal, the cell data icons (G,E,3G,H) are also green and have green/grey icons for up/down traffic. Basically this will make the notification bar very similar to that of the Nexus S (and Nexus One running gingerbread).

Thanks for the info mate.

I'm only really interested in the CRT screen off animation, is it contained in the framework-res or SystemUI apk??

I tried and it kept bootlooping and I was almost panicking, but thankfully I managed to adb the original back!

Interestingly, I can't use adb push anymore, even though I have root :/

I think you need the Insecure ADB to get this working on KE2 (and possibly KE1) phones.

Paul has details here

http://android.modaco.com/content/sony-eri...ple-to-use-apk/

He's twittered that it should work on the SGSII but I haven't tried it yet.

Alternatively I think you could use ODIN to apply the Insecure KDD kernel again, make the changes than flash back the stock KE2 kernel ?

-- Edit --

I've found an alternative method over on XDA that is similar to Paul's method but just changes the directory file permissions that we need rather than modifying adbd etc.

adb shell

su

mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

chmod 777 /system/app

chmod 777 /system/framework

exit

exit

That should set the permissions to allow you to write the file and you can set it back once you are finished by doing exactly the same thing except use

chmod 755 instead of 777.

You can use the command

stat -c '%A %a %n' /system/*

in the shell to check the values.
