Mod Type:: Theme

Difficulty:: Easy

Mod Status:: Stable

Apply In:: CWM Recovery

Optional:: Smali Edits

Requires Root:: Yes

Optional:: Themed

Android Version:: 4.0.3 (ICS)

Source::
Here are 8 of the ICS apps I've inverted and made transparent for TeamHacksungs port. These are all separate installs cause I install my Gmails to data and not everyone wants every app but it's still easy enough if ya want them all...These are all 4.0.3 versions and work on the last few roms I've tried out...Thanks to travP and foxdog for helping me get linux set up so I could start building ROMs from source..

Install guide for Email, Contacts, Calendar, Mms:
These are all system apps and for one reason or another they either need to built from source so in doing that these are just as easy to install as they are to flash. Just simply download the one(s) you want, move them all to system/app (replacing the existing apk) set permissions on each and REBOOT... Shouldn't have any issues installing now.. *Mms is included in the apk install but also as a flash zip..

Install guide for Gmail and YouTube:
If your Gmail is in the system partition use root explorer or titanium backup to uninstall/delete the app and then REBOOT... Then you can install mine like a normal app... Enjoy!

Install guide for Market, Calculator, Mms:

Download the zip(s) you like, move them to a known directory or the root of the sd card, boot into recovery, install zip from sd, choose zip, locate the zip(s) and select one, choose yes, repeat for the rest of the zips... then reboot system after all the zips download...

For anyone wanting to remove the dividers in Mms, here's how I did it: I used the heirarchyViewer.bat from the sdk and found that the surrounding box that encases those dividers is id/message_block so I did a search for that id in layouts and 2 xml's had hits. (message_list_item_send and recv).. I added paddings, layout widths, new dips, added backgrounds, and it just wouldn't change.. Checked out smali but nothing.. I messed with the positioning and ended up with left_middle and right_middle as the source.. Not sure if this is as difficult as I found it to be but in case anyone wants to change that, there ya go..

Install guide for Talk:

For this one you have to flash 2 zips.. the first one is just the res, resources and classes.. The 2nd has the edited Manifest.xml in it.. So download the first zip, flash it in recovery.. verify that Talk.apk is working.. Then download the 2nd link for either Full Holo or Full Transparent and flash it.. That will finish the theme of it...

Well that's odd... check the app drawer first.. sometimes weird things happen like it did with the camera icon on his vanilla gb roms... if its not there try reflashing the Mms.apk...

I have no clue why these little things happen but it happens on the gnex also.. use root explorer and go to sdcard/your rom/system/app/gallery2.apk/ press it and hit extract... then a pop up shows that has go to extracted or stay.. choose go to extracted... choose gallery2.apk and hit move.. back out to the main page of root explorer and hit system/app/ hit the r/w tab at the top and hit paste.. set permissions and reboot... you'll have it back.... sorry about that... happened to me also...

Really loving the themed mms.apk! Is it supposed to display "select input method" in the notification bar every time I use the keyboard? Not sure if that's from specifically flashing this or just build 6.

Mms definitely doesn't work, tried multiple flashes and downloads and nothing. Even tried pushing it to system/ app with root explorer and it's still a no go. Noticed it is a smaller file than the original mms.apk. Any suggestions? Maybe reupload the file again. Thanks the rest of the apps are working great so far. Thanks

This is the only MMS.apk works for me in Fascinate ICS build 5 & 6. It's the only one that will allow me to send pictures now that it is fixed in the rom. All other blacked out versions fail to send or receive.

Use root explorer and go to sdcard/this rom/system/app/Mms.apk and extract it... go to the extracted folder and move Mms.apk to system/app and set permissions... then reboot.. that should give you the stock Mms.apk ... no clue why that happened...

same here I've had no problems. But some people have troubles that others don't. My gps would not work on earlier builds. I flashed build 2 restart. Go back to recovery flash build 6 restart. This worked perfectly for me I haven't had trouble at all with mms or anything yet.
