Everyone for testing this throughout its beta stages<br />


FAQ:
Q - Will this work on 'Phone X'?
A - The only way you'll find out is if you test it, this application was built to be ROM and phone independent.

Q - Will this work on 'ROM X'?
A - See the question above... Furthermore, As long as your ROM is ICS 4.0.3 or better, you'll be perfectly fine!

Q - When will 'feature X' be included in the app?
A - Either when I figure it out or when you (or someone else) shows me how to do so. I am nowhere near the title of 'App Dev' but I have been doing my best to learn and get the application to function as best it can.

Q - What devices are supported?
A - All (and I mean ALL) HDPI and XHDPI devices, MDPI devices will come soon enough =)

Q - WHY ISN'T MY BATTERY DISPLAYING PROPERLY IN THE STATUS BAR???
A - Instead of clogging my thread with posts that have nothing to do with my app, please ask the dev of your rom if 1% increments are set FOR THE BASE BATTERY. Thanks in advance =)

Q - When I use 'mod X' i get a folder in my gallery with all the images...
A - Not really a question, but it's a common complaint. Until I get it set up to have the app do this for you, go to the 'masturmods' folder on your SD card and create a '.nomedia' file. It doesn't have to have anything in it, this just tells your apps not to look in this folder or any subfolders for images, music, etc.

IF YOU HAVE ICONS YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ADDED TO MASTURMODS SETTINGS, USE THE APP TO SEND ME AN EMAIL WITH ALL OF THE ICONS YOU WOULD LIKE INCLUDED!
(If they make the cut they will be added and you will be credited for the addition)

You should decompile ninjamorph and learn how it can go into the apks and replace the pngs from the phone, thats the first step of being able to do what you want, after that its a simple reboot and the changes take place.
i wish it were that simple. I'm actually building this from the ground up and when you decompile an app it gives you smali instead of java. Last time I checked none of those apps (metamorph/ninjamorph) were open source so i can't get what i need from them

Didn't think I was gonna have to do this, but I'm entering 'Bump mode'

I'm still unable to get reverse navigation down. It's really annoying me... Gone over a lot of literature but I can't get it to work right

That's not a bad idea. P3 is awesome. People that don't like him don't see what he does for all of us. Were all using his work in one way or another. I'll see about getting a hold of them

This is true, but I'm not wanting this to be built from someone else's source... I'm willing to take help with building this, but taking someone else's base is something I really want to stay away from.

I'm really glad to see excitement about this on the user's end, but sadly I need more interest from the development end so this thing can get rolling. I'm doing what I can to research for this, but a lot of what research has pointed me to has caused the app to FC...

Woohoo! Reverse navigation is a go!...

Something so simple is always so satisfying to find XD

EDIT - 01/30/12 00:13 - And now... I have made it tell the user what icon/icon set you have chosen XD



EDIT - 01/30/12 10:56 - Got the Mastur Mods site set up, added direct links to each sub directories, app creates MasturMods folder in sdcard and a sub directory for each icon type. Productive night =) gettin ready to do more

Love the idea but I have some questions.

The mods you mentioned are in the frameworks and systemui. You said you wanted this to be rom independant? How do you plan on modding these in android enviroment? As you know the res/drawables are complied and signed.

Do you have concerns about not being able to get obtain the system permissions required to change some settings?
Code:
android:sharedUserId="android.uid.system"
ok and my final question? all the mods we have implemented and are working on require code support in the frameworks (execpt the graphics changes of coarse) I'm not saying it can't be done I'm just wondering how you planned on implementing.

I'd be happy to help, I stay pretty busy but love the idea

oh and something I noticed (no biggie but) you don't need the internet permission in your AndroidManifest yet when you launch a website to the browser the browser is connecting to the internet not your app so you don't need to ask permission. If you used the displayed the info from the webpage in your own custom view or any thing from the http://developer.and...Connection.html class then it would be required.
Thanks for the tip on the permissions thing. This is my first app lol so forgive my ignorance on permissions.

I'm not sure how much detail jrummy wants me would want me going into on this but to get this to be an in dependant app we're using a hack similar to the one he uses in rom toolbox. It is a stable hack, however there are some risks to it since were hacking system apps. No matter the device precautions can be taken to avoid any permanent problems such as backing up the framework-res and systemUI or by making a Android (backup).

As for obtaining permissions, all we should need is root permission so we can run the script in such.

I hope I've answered your questions to your satisfaction lol I've been typing this on my way to work and I just got here. Let me know if you have any more questions or if you need more detail and I'll talk to jrummy to find out what I can disclose. Until then take care =)

Right now I would like to be able to download to a specific folder in /sdcard/masturmods/ depending on what activity is currently running instead of to /sdcard/downloads/

The last thing I need is to pull titles from those folders to the designated activity to be displayed as a choosable option

The last step is giving it to jrummy to let him work his magic lol. Bit seriously all we need to do is implement the script

Soo... I've been sick for a couple days and instead of laying in bed fighting this cold, I decided to lay in bed and see about getting the finishing touches put on this... and well...

BETA RELEASE IS OUT!! Check the change log and READ THE WHOLE OP

Images will be added once Jrummy and I get time to talk and get a little more work put into this.

If you have a set of icons you'd like in the app, PM me a download link of ALL of the icons and ONLY those Icons.

Have fun with it =) I have been

Sweet bud...so this should work on aokp builds? Im currently on M3...
This should work no matter what from you're on. I'm going.to be updating the packs after work tonight to include a different charge animation and to display 1% increments since some rooms don't have it enabled by default. I'm also going to fix the circle signal cluster set so that everything looks the way it should =)
