[MOD]JB 4.2.2 Statusbar+More [JB4.1.2 Stock][UPDATE 28-11-13][V4]

I get an "operation failed" when I want to paste the SystemUI.apk in the /system folder. I entered the commands in the terminal, I was able to change Acer.Shell.Mode to Disabled and to rename the original two files, but now there's only that "systemui.apk[?]" thing, where the others were also talking about.

 

Acer S500 using the stock Acer firmware, unlocked bootloader, rooted.

 

EDIT: Never mind, fixed it. I downloaded the apk to my pc, deleted the "-" after "SystemUI.apk-" and pushed it on my phone, which then, after some restarting, pasted it in the system/app folder :) Looking gooodddd :D

What is the worse that could happen? What can happen if I disable acer.shell? Considering the fact that we are in the middle of the week, I wouldn't want to flash again the ROM...

You'll get stock android, after you reboot you'll see the stock android unlock screen and the interface is also a bit different.

So , for those who have enough time and some skill , and I mean those with ORGROD , I suggest you to : First : Disable acer.shell. Second : Delete that weird sign after SystemUI.apk(???) ( from SpaceCaker ). Third : Push it to your /system through TWRP.

 

If you aren't patient enough you can do it. If you want to wait, this weekend I will try it myself.

Yeah, make sure you download it on your PC, because Android somehow doesn't recognize ".apk-" and just displays it as (a corrupted) ".apk". If you rename it and then view it through some kind of explorer, you want to see the red Jelly Bean icon and not a blank page (that means it's corrupted).

I agree with Tom. After you rename it, it will receive the stock 'red jelly bean UI' icon. When that happens, you are ready to go. DON'T FORGET TO ADD '.BAK' AT THE STOCK 'SYSTEMUI.APK' and 'SYSTEMUI.OBEX' END. Paste it into /system ( preferably with TWRP ), if you didn't do it with TWRP, then don't forget about the lines in terminal emulator :

su

mount -o remount,rw / system

 

and continue by pasting it into /system.

Reboot.

Enjoy... (or cry). xD

 

It may work, it may not work. It's experimental, until a solution is found.

 

Also, I think disabling acer.shell increases the chances to get it to work.

Yupppppii . It works...you need to rename it because after .apk it has a space...just deletw that space and it.ll work..

@spacecaker - i don.t like the white battery icon and white clock..if you can change that to stock jellybean 4.2 that.ll be great.

And the toogle icon in statusbar beside the settinga it.s too large.

You can change that with GravityBox.

Man I love that application.

Did you leave the terminal window open?

I succeeded with this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jrummy.root.browserfree

And then I edited the build.prop with the RB text editor (included in the Root Browser).

 

So what I did was:

Open Terminal --> Switch to Root Browser --> Open Build.prop with RB Text Editor --> Edit acer.shell.mode --> Switch to Terminal (through recent apps) --> Put in the commands --> Switch back to Build.prop and hit save

and about the pngs

i used pngs from Kitkat butmade battery pngs myself

mostly i choose these because i use gravitybox myself and this had good coloring options
