    First of all, gotta give mad props to Alastrionia for figuring out this groundbreaking idea in theming....and he has been kind enought to share this process with the Android community...so don't forget to thank him...

    Want THIS--->




    Well here's the update.zip for PEv6...flash via recovery without wiping....;) ..and I'm sure you can flash this over other PEv6 themes just fine...

    That was just to do quick compiles...but I doubt that there is any limit (within reason of course) ...just should make the images around 480x854...and you play around with the duration each image shows for...

    Ok so I just flashed this via rzr. I'm running PEv6 with MBK's personal theme.

    1st thing I noticed was the themed notification icons (3g, wifi, etc) were back to stock GB, and that the pulldown was a static image for me. :/

    Not sure if I didn't something wrong or what. Either way I restored the nandroid I did before flashing.

    yonnor,

    after making a backup, if you open the original .zip (trueblue theme, right?), using 7zip, and go to /system/app/systemui.apk/res/drawable-hdpi and drag all of those images to the same place on the .zip MBk posted (yes over-write them all. stat_sys_pulldown_anim0.png thru stat_sys_pulldown_anim6.png will be safe). then flash that. that should give you the same systemui.apk you had with the matrix pulldown animations.

    best,

    alot of times the 1st time you pull it down after the 1st boot it is just a static image. it gets better at it as time goes by....as for the stock images this was created using the stock SystemUI.apk so it will replace those images. you'll need to ask your themer to create a custom systemUI for his theme.

    EDIT: or do what rabbitfoot said...

    yeah you could do that...drag all the pngs from the drawable-hdpi folder of the TruBlue theme's SystemUI.apk into the SystemUI.apk in the zip...as rabbitfoot stated....however you must leave the Shade_bg.png since that was modded to fully transparent, and as mentioned all of the anim pngs won't be overwritten since they were added new...
    Yeah, just usually the fist pulldown after a reboot does that... but afterwards it works fine...

    I can be patient and wait. Lol knowing me, if I tried to mod the theme myself i'd somehow cause my droid to explode or worse o_O.

    I'll happily volunteer my droid as a test dummy for you!

    Here you go brah...for PEv6...
    PEv6_AnimatedMatrixPulldown_TruBlue_HGC.zip

    And as of now Greg is only having GLD and Alastrionia test his beta builds of v6.5, so I don't have anything for you to test as of yet... but I do have basically all of the components ready for 2.3.4, so it'll likely go straight to release...;)

    hey MBK or Alastrionia,

    i just tried making a honeycomb transparent pulldown, using the images from the honeycomb bootanimation, which included 19 frames. it appears to only be recognizing the first 7 frames.

    can you tell me which file(s) needs to be altered and how to adjust the amount of frames used and the rate at which they display/read?

    if you don't want to give away the colonel's recipe, it'd be pretty cool if you posted your matrix animation zip allowing for 19 frames ;)


    this is AWESOME stuff, guys. on behalf of the community, MUCH appreciated :)

    best,
    rf

    *EDIT nevermind. i just saw this: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...-status-bar-pulldown-gb-roms.html#post1563052 thanks!
