Something so simple is always so satisfying to find XD

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

OK so you need a file structure of /sdcard/appStuff/ and a file browser to navigate the file tree?

Downloading files is something I'd like to learn more about I've actually bumped against a wall in one project with downloading binaries. I want something like the market uses and download asynchronously in the notification bar then launch a pending intent for an install dialog but I do have a file browser we can mod to suit our needs https://github.com/n00bware/android_apps_parchment/blob/master/src/com/n00bware/parchment/FilePicker.java

The current implementation is to show all files from '/' but of coarse we can change that and everything else depending on what it should show in the UI and how it would be displayed best

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 =)

Sweet!! This is totally awesome! I tried this out with the 4.0.4 rom floating around and worked perfectly... I can't wait to see what's next. Thanks to you, and everyone involved! :)
