You have decompiled the APK havent you? (just asking)

it should be quite easy once the apks are decompiled. i think you either change some smali files or you edit some PNG's to make the status bar transparent and i thought you just swapped the battery PNG's for the new ones?

if i am mistaken please correct me. Maybe a more experienced dev could help you. there are probably loads of guides on apk and the like for this.

You don't need to do any of these, all you do is edit some xml's.

edit the status_bar.xml to center the clock, located in res/layout. You can also make the statusbar transparent in this same xml, change #ff to something else. Use a HEX calculator to find out the correct value.

To add battery mods, you need to manually add 101 battery pngs to drawable-hdpi and modify a certain xml that displays these png's. I can't remember exactly, but i believe Tillaz posted a quick tutorial on one of the other threads.

ha, you will get the hang of it... we all start out the same ;)

so, what exactly happened ?

did it successfully compile ?

did you choose yes then yes again when prompted about system app ? (you always choose yes)

did you delete everything in the "keep" folder ? (except the META-INF folder) then press any button

about the center clock, try doing this

directly above

        <com.android.systemui.statusbar.policy.Clock android:textAppearance="@style/TextAppearance.StatusBar.Clock" android:gravity="center" android:id="@id/clock" android:paddingTop="3.0px" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:singleLine="true" />

[/xml]

add this

[xml] </LinearLayout>

there is no png file for the status bar, it uses a hex value, in status_bar.xml

<com.android.systemui.statusbar.phone.PhoneStatusBarView android:orientation="vertical" android:background="#00000000" android:focusable="true" android:descendantFocusability="afterDescendants"

[/xml]

this part is what would make it transparent, but in my experience it never works

android:background="#00000000"

you can change it to display a .png by using

android:background="@drawable/your_image_name_here"

and adding your new "your_image_name_here.png" to the hdpi folder
