    [MOD] CRT Anim + Desktop UA String + SIP + SMS

    Post by shr00m on Wed Jun 08, 2011 5:40 pm

    I've copied the work done by sangreal06 over at xda so that it will work on our g-slates. You can check out a full description of this mod at his thread here.

    The G-SLATE version of his mod can be downloaded here

    In short, this mod will
    1. let your browser view the full desktop version of sites
    2. enable access to the built-in SIP client to make internet calls
    3. Allows you to send SMS messages from your g-slate's number, but so far I still can't seem to receive messages (YMMV), you'll need to download an SMS app to use this like handcent
    4. enables the phone app so you can make calls from your g-slate's phone number, but so far mic + speakers aren't working. However I still found this useful for sending short service codes to my operator via the dialer
    5. Cool CRT animation when you lock your screen

    This is a DANGEROUS mod to install, if anything goes wrong you will end up with a boot loop. Therefore I strongly urge you to make a backup of your system partition before installing. If you've rooted your g-slate then you already have nvflash and bootloader.bin. To make a backup, power on your g-slate while holding down both volume keys to go into APX mode and do:

    Code:
    ./nvflash –bl bootloader.bin –getpartitiontable ptable.txt
    ./nvflash -r –read 8 system.img

    in case something goes wrong you can always restore by going back into APX mode and doing

    Code:
    ./nvflash -r –download 8 system.img
    ./nvflash -r –sync
    and press the reset button under the sim cover to reboot.

    The way I installed this mod is as follows:

    Code:
    adb push framework-res-gslate-modified.apk /sdcard/
    adb shell
    su -
    mount -o remount,rw /system
    dd if=/sdcard/framework-res-gslate-modified.apk of=/system/framework/framework-res.apk
    at this point the g-slate will automatically reboot with the new features.

    Very cool to see someone trying to expand the development community. Looks like some great features.

    yes you can do it without ADB... just download the file onto your g-slate and run the same commands in the Terminal emulator (available from the market):

    Code:

    su -
    mount -o remount,rw /system
    dd if=/sdcard/Download/framework-res-gslate-modified.apk of=/system/framework/framework-res.apk

    just make sure if= in the dd command points to the correct location of the file you downloaded.

    careful... the files attached in the XDA thread will work only on the xoom, not on the gslate... don't want anyone to brick their device thinking that's a gslate thread.

    this is also a nice chance to remind everyone to make sure they have a nvflash backup like described above in case anything goes wrong.

    just make sure if= in the dd command points to the correct location of the file you downloaded.

    You should be able to just cp the new file also. But dd will get the job done also.

    If you upgraded your G-Slate to 3.1 then the above framework-res.apk will send you into a boot loop. The correct version to download for 3.1 is here

    Attention to anyone owning the v900, this will cause the device to get stuck in a boot-loop too!
