    Exclamation Animated status bar pulldown for GB roms

    First off this should work with all GB based roms that use systemui.apk
    there may be subtle differences but the basics should be the same all around.

    after much trial and error and ripping what little hair I have left out
    success was mine and it's time to share this with everyone

    and it's so simple that you'll love how fast you can integrate this into ROM's / themes / whatever your heart desires

    1. take your systemui.apk and decompile it

    2. navigate to layout folder

    3. grab "status_bar_tracking.xml" and open it up in your editor
    (now for the fun)

    4. to the first line - "com.android.systemui.statusbar.TrackingView" add this ""android:background="@drawable/...anim.xml""
    <com.android.systemui.statusbar.TrackingView android:background="@drawable/...anim.xml...>
    5. after saving that, navigate back into the drawable folder and add your animation.xml file there

    5a. next navigate into the drawable/hdpi folder and add your animated images

    6. also in the drawable/hdpi folder find and open up the shade_bg.png with your editor and make it 100% transparent

    7. now it's time to recompile your apk , following all the usual directions with that

    8. enjoy your newly created systemui.apk with a pretty animated background. new and fresh and unlike anything before

    that's it. done deal. it's super easy and fast and breathes life into true customization.
    I used the stat_sys_upload.xml from the framework-res.apk as my base
    all I had to do was change the timing and change the image names.
    also you'll notice above - don't copy it word for word on the xml.
    I did the "..." meaning whatever you decide to name your file.

    I'll try to throw up a video shortly of my success with this so everyone can see it.

    For Froyo users please following the information below.
    And many thanks to santiemanuel for the find

    It's very cool, and I wanted to get it, but my Milestone 2 is stuck in Froyo YET. So lets port this thingy.

    You need transparency hack enabled
    Decompile framework-res.apk
    Go to drawable-hdpi and make status_bar_background.png fully transparent with PS or GIMP
    GO to layout and edit the 2nd line of status_bar_tracking.xml like this
    <com.android.server.status.TrackingView android:background="@drawable/status_bar_background_animation" androidrientation="vertical" androidaddingLeft="0.0px" androidaddingRight="0.0px" androidaddingBottom="0.0px" android:focusable="true" android:visibility="gone" android:descendantFocusability="afterDescendants"

    where status_bar_background_animation links to status_bar_background_animation.xml in drawable folder, there you set the images and durations.

    Recompile, and that's it. Enjoy, Greetings from Argentina.

    Talking



    just a simple proof of concept
    showing that it will take a sequence of images and animate them.

    Too risqué. Removed by moderator. This is a family forum.

    another proof of concept video
    this one is a bit more NSFW
    so watch at your own risk
    it's not bad, but risque

    I will once CM7 is out of beta status for it... and with it being pre-alpha right now, it may be a bit.

    LOL... TBolt keeps itching my finger...:P

    What I like about this animated pulldown thread is how well Barry wrote out the instructions... absolutely a crisp job in doing so... and I'm guessing that once members start noticing what this thread is all about, they're gonna go completely ape-shiet...lol

    I wish I was more of a decompiler....well I take that back, that's not the issue....its recompiling without errors that's the issue. I'm still gonna give this a shot though! To awesome not to even try!
