Howdy All,

We have put together a new Phone.apk for Froyo Miui that has a Larger Picture for the incoming call screens! thought that i would share. We've made 3 versions, one centers the image and one has a wide image, and we couldn't decide what was better so you can make up your own mind. See the pics for a beter explanation Posted Image


Big thanks to My_Immortal for her Help, Motivation and for Testing it for me

I have tested it on Trips Froyo Miui

Hope you enjoy it as much as i do!

Pvy.

Install Instructions
1.
Download the Zip you require and place it on your SD Card
2.
Reboot into Recovery and Make a backup (Optional but advised)\
3a. In Recovery Install Custom Zip and choose Pvymods-Phone.apk-Cropped.zip (For the Cropped version)
3b.
In Recovery Install Custom Zip and choose Pvymods-Phone.apk-Wide.zip (For the Wide version)
4. Reboot and Enjoy.

To fix the Tiny Images try this

Android by default, saves Google Contacts with a 96x96 resolution contact picture.
So, in order for this mod to work in its full glory, you need to use a workaround to assign bigger pictures.
You can try Full Screen Caller ID (just for assigning the images, you don't need to use the app for the rest of its features)
or SyncMyPix! ;)

...And adding my little touch to this wonderful mod,
I made the letters of the caller's name bold,
so that they struck out more! :)

the differnece between the two is how it scales the image the wide one fits the image so that all 4 sides are outside the box, and the cropped one fits all 4 sides inside the box and if it is smaller does not increase size.
the box is the size of the wide image :P

hope this helps clear things up a bit

You don't need to keep the Full Screen Caller ID.
You can either disable it for incoming calls etc,
or even uninstall it/freeze it after assigning the pictures. ;)
How's the quality with the wide version?

You need to have a backup of your default Phone.apk and replace the modded one with that, using Root Explorer for example.
If you didn't make a backup, just redownload the ROM zip and take the Phone.apk from there.

Sorry to hear that, but it certainly has nothing to do with the mod.
Perhaps you installed an application that's malfunctioning.

if your wanting a full rom, i'd advise you ask in the rom thread, i dont want to step on any toes by mirroring it.
but here is a remover (you cant dl from media fire? where did you get this mod from?)

REMOVER IS FOR TRIPS ROM ONLY
dropbox -http://dl.dropbox.co...apk-Remover.zip
mediafire - http://www.mediafire...i9bbp0ittpb2fgt

Pvy.

PS. you cant dl from mediafire? where did you get this mod from?
