How To Use Smali Dex Compile / DeCompile For classes.dex and Context Editor: [Changing Of Font Color Time On You Status Bar!]

Download This Files: [Smali Dex]

Normally I will place all my files to C:\Android\ for a new project. But you can choose anywhere you like that is at your own convenience.

1. You will need classes.dex from Service.jar - Extract it out using 7-Zip or WinRAR.

2. Once You have already done extracting classes.dex out put it in you project folder.

3. You can start following the steps below.

So lets start. Lets say i have already extracted all the file i've needed and placed it to my project folder here is what you need to do. Run CMD.

Type in cd C:\Android\ or where ever you project folder is located it. It should show you something like this once you've pressed ENTER.

Okay lets move one, now here is what you need to check be sure that classes.dex is located inside the folder in order for you to start de-compiling the dex files.

Now Type in java -Xmx512M -jar baksmali.jar -o classout/ classes.dex

After pressing enter you should now get a classout folder inside you project folder.

post-573931-1297170984_thumb.png

Now double click on the classout folder. [Do not close the CMD it will save you alot of time.] Inside the folder contains alot of files so lets cut it short with a photo:

Locate the file here: classout\com\android\server\status

Item will be: StatusBarIcon.smali

post-573931-1297171354_thumb.png

Okay once you see the StatusBarIcon.smali we will now start using the Context Editor that is given on the first Post.

Right Click on StatusBarIcon.smali open with Context Editor or You could run context editor and just drag StatusBarIcon.smali into it.

You should get something like this:

post-573931-1297171839_thumb.png

Now on Context Editor press CTRL+F and type color and press enter.

You should all be getting this paragraph that i've highlighted:

post-573931-1297172033_thumb.png

Follow the following lines stated below: From original to edited.

Text Original:

	.line 46

	const/high16 v6, -0x100


	invoke-virtual {v4, v6}, Landroid/widget/TextView;->setTextColor(I)V
Text Edited:
	.line 46

	const v6, -0x1


	invoke-virtual {v4, v6}, Landroid/widget/TextView;->setTextColor(I)V

Once you are done, Save the file & close context editor. Go to your Project folder and rename your classes.dex to classes-old.dex You need to do this just incase you mess up some stuffs. After you have done with this go to cmd and type in java -Xmx512M -jar smali.jar classout/ -o classes.dex Press enter and now you'll get the new classes.dex

Here's what you need to do open service.jar with 7-Zip and drag the new classes.dex inside and save. You're done changing your status bar Time into white color. The next tutorial is changing your status bar text to white color [The Tricky Part].

To store the new service.jar you have compiled you can use ADB USB or o2bupdate.tar.gz your own convenience [i'll touch on a how to soon]

If your using o2bupdate.tar.gz place it in My Storage/ where haret is at and run haret. Let the o2bupdate do it stuffs & You'll get a white color time font something like this: post-573931-1297173040_thumb.png

How to use HxD Hex Editor: I Believe Most Of You Knows How To. (Changing Status Bar Font Color To White) Other colors may work to you can try.

Download Files: HxD Hex Editor 1.7.7.0

By now most of you should have the Framework-res.apk with you. Inside the apk contain images & XML for the android theme. You can mess around with the images & the xml.

But what i'm about to teach you all here is basically changing the font color of the status bar.

Go inside the framework-res folder that you have extracted. Go to this directory: framework-res\res\layout

Look for a file named status_bar.xml

post-573931-1297174016_thumb.png

Now once you have found it. Open HxD Hex Editor and drag status_bar.xml into it.

Now once you have done that, press the search tab and click find 08 00 00 1C. change text string to hex value.

The first one should come out: [Now in the photo you see the red box Change it to FF FF FF.]

post-573931-1297174319_thumb.png

We are not done yet. Do The same thing again search for 08 00 00 1C.

This is what you should get: [Now in the photo you see the red box Change it to FF FF FF.]

post-573931-1297174542_thumb.png

One you change it save it but don't close it just yet. There's another few more steps you need to do.

Now search for 39 00 01 01.

You should get this: [Now in the photo you see the red box change it to 1C FF FF FF FF.]

post-573931-1297174777_thumb.png

Now save it and close Hex editor. Open your framework-res.apk with 7-Zip and drag your edited Status_bar.xml in it and save.

Use o2bupdate.tar.gz to update or you can simply use adb usb. Remember if you use o2bupdate.tar.gz the should contain \system\framework\ in order for it to be updated. save goes to service jar.

Now this is what you should get after the update :

Thanks a lot ! You did some great work bringing all this together.

Just a small note : don't install this update if you just switched to the latest beta2 (the files from the update are for beta1). If you do, the apps will keep crashing.

For safety, never forget to backup framework-res.apk and services.jar before replacing them. This way, you can always undo any changes.

shoot got too excited and installed it before reading that it does not work with beta2; is there a way to undo the damage without reformating?

Download the latest archive of the rootfs (called o2b2filesys.tar.gz or ext2.tar.gz). Extract it, go to /system/framework, and copy framework-res.apk and services.jar to your existing partition (using Ubuntu/Linux) at the same location, overwriting the bad files. Boot, and voilà !

I played a little with the framework-res.apk and changed the color and the pictures from the status bar but it didn't work as expected.

Now even with the old stable version of the two files framework-res and services, the Android is not booting up correctly and all the services are failing.

Is there a way to correct this or to install over again :D ?

Surenz did you not read the post. For the old version Files it won't work on Beta 2. Second if you did try changing status bar colors or so, they have different image format. You need to extract our framework-res & services file from Beta 2 to start a theme from scretch, you no longer can use the file i've given from beta1 cause its different. My theme will be back in progress after my overseas trip. =D

I haven't used your file but the original framework-res.apk and replaced some files inside. Obviously the packing is not so easy :D

Anyway I reinstalled.
