Hi,

You have to decompil Launcher APK (ex.: with APK Multi Tool), then check [b]"Define.smali" [/b]in smali/com/android/launcher2.

Open it with a text editor and change

[CODE]
sput-boolean v1, Lcom/android/launcher2/Define;->ENABLE_APP_MENU_TRANSPARENT:Z
[/CODE]

to

[CODE]
sput-boolean v2, Lcom/android/launcher2/Define;->ENABLE_APP_MENU_TRANSPARENT:Z
[/CODE]

Recompile APK, then by opening the original Launcher.apk (ex.: with WinRar or 7Zip) overwrite classes.dex with the new one.

Push the updated APK to your phone, then reboot.

[b]P.S : You need deodexed APK/ROM.[/b] Edited by vache

edit: vache thanks for the answer Edited by apometru

How did you do that? I'm curious because I've seen a ROM once (for galaxy nexus, it think...) where you can modify (remove keys, add more, change functions etc.) all of the virtual keys!

simple

[b]YOU MUST BE ROOTED IN ORDER FOR IT TO WORK[/b] and [b]I DO NOT TAKE RESPONSABILITY IN CASE YOU F*** UP YOUR PHONE[/b]:)))

first i have to say i really love android commander:))))

i wanted more screen space so i extracted build.prop from the phone with it and modified the pixel density to 265 then added the new buil.prop over the old one in the phone. nothing looks funny, every app just works fine, the market has no issues at all. (this is not necessary unless you want it like this; you can skip this)

then i installed fullscreentoggle and LMTv1.9 from xda (just put it in the sd-card) and installed those as normal apps. opened LMT and checked for it to autostart and started the service. open fullscreentoggle and push the button "disable navbar". wait for superuser, accept and push button again. then do a reboot.

and everything looks as attached (these are screenshots from my phone)

p.s. you must extract the launcher2.apk from you're phone and modify 3 images (just erase the pixels from those png images in photoshop) in order for the launcher to look fine. otherwise the launcher will have that bottom shadow look funny.
to do this open android commander, navigate to system/app/ extract launcher2.apk, open launcher2.apk with 7zip and navigate to res/drawable-xhdpi and extract the bg_homescreen.png; bg_cling4; bg_cling3; bg_cling2 and bg_cling1. modify them in photoshop (just use eraser) and then put them back to res/drawer-xhdpi by drag and drop in 7zip. then use android commander to paste it over the initial launcher and you're done Edited by apometru

so how do you "call" the softkeys that are shown in the 4th image if you need them, you just swype from the edge of the screen?

yes and the program that does it is LMT

and you just touch the edge and it pops up. it can appear on one side of the screen, on both sides, on both sides and bottom or just bottom.

here's the link [url="http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1330150"]http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1330150[/url]
it was originally developed for gnex4 but it works on many other devices. i am using it for instance and it works flawlessly Edited by apometru

Ok, I'm home and I want to try this new. Can you provide link for full screen toggle? (NEVERMIND, I found it: [url="http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1497558"]XDA[/url])
Btw, why did you reduce the pixel density?

EDIT:Done & Love it! I din't edit the .png files because I didn't have to. I use Apex launcher. Thanks for this Apometru! ;-) Edited by Namuhk2k

I changed the dpi to 265 and it looks good indeed. But how did you determine this value? Is it just a random value you thought would work well, did you do some experimenting or is 265 the result of some sort of calculation?

well... it's not random. i played a lot with it and with very many values ranging from 320 (the default one) to 200 and i found that everything works just fine until 265 including this value. the png that are part of menus, launcher, different apps work fine, look fine and don't have visual artefacts. go below this value and the first thing you'll notice is that the bubble notification.apk has stuff that looks weird and well.... not that good. you should also be careful cause you might have lag from time to time, it's because there is more space to process, and the png's are shown at full but in bigger resolution. this also happens if you use live wallpapers. ;) have fun with dpi:) Edited by apometru
