30 Nov: UI patches (LHS / RHS / Both / Search Button / When Hidden)

87 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

This is now included in my MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Galaxy Nexus - details.

Following on from my earlier 'left hand' patch, I now have a full set of UI patches for the Galaxy Nexus. These patches change the behaviour of the legacy menu button. Options are:

  • Show legacy menu button on both sides
  • Show legacy menu button on both sides and keep them active even when not visible
  • Show legacy menu button on both sides and show a search button
  • Show legacy menu button on both sides, keep them active even when not visible and show a search button
  • Show legacy menu button the left hand side
  • Show legacy menu button the left hand side and keep it active even when not visible
  • Show legacy menu button the right hand side
  • Show legacy menu button the right hand side and keep it active even when not visible
    I'm now using both sides always active with search button personally!

    Here is the both sides with search button version in operation...

    Before:

    After:

    Screenshot_2011-11-22-13-17-33.pngScreenshot_2011-11-22-13-17-37.png

    If you'd like to try it out, simply flash the appropriate update zip from below using ClockworkMod Recovery.

    This is only tested on a device running the I9250XXKK1 / ITL41D ROM.

Weirdly, I find this more comfortable when using it right handed too. Go figure!

Is this updated to the one with a menu button on either side that you tweeted?

If not, can you post that too please? :-)

Does this restore access to the Facebook app's Settings, so I can turn off the damn notifications?

With stock it shows no legacy menu button, but also has no new-style menu button/way to access Settings. Very frustrating.

adb shell cat /system/app/SystemUI.apk>/sdcard/SystemUI.backup.apk

The system cannot find the path specified.

Yes, if you use an 'always on' version. :)

Try putting the bit after shell in speech marks.

e.g. $ adb shell "cat /system/app/SystemUI.apk>/sdcard/SystemUI.backup.apk"

Worked a treat, thanks. Why did I have to do that though.

Your shell was assuming the ">" was a redirect for itself, not one to pass through to your Android device's shell. Hence it was looking for a /sdcard/ on *your* computer, not your phone. The quotes tell your shell to pass everything inside them through to the adb shell.

I can only assume this behavior is slightly different on different shells. For example, I'm using bash on OS X and had to quote it. Potentially on Windows or Linux that ">" is passed through.

And the open apps button? It probably makes sense to keep the (smaller and not always displayed) menu buttons at the edges no?

oh forgot about the dedicated open apps button... if it's possible to shift places, open apps could be at the edges, but i was wondering about the main buttons if they can be rearranged

Couple of questions. And before i ask, love the work being done! Okay first question, does the search button have voice search capabilities if held down? Second question any chance anyone feels like making a YouTube with this mod being used? Thanks, keep up the great work!

The search button works in the YouTube app but no, no press-hold functionality yet.

You should have my 'insecure boot image' installed in order to use this patch. You install this at your own risk.
