    Welcome to the Extended Settings Mod.

    I created an App. (it's my first one so no laughing!!!)
    After installing you'll find it on one of your homecreens. It has the title "MIUI Control Panel"
    This is where to go to access the options this Mod gives you. There is a screenshot below to show you what to expect when you open the app.

    CREDITS:

    MASSIVE THANKS to roee88 his hard work means the Modded Launcher here
    now has Scrollable widgets support

    I urge you to visit Android Pro Widgets
    the widgets there work perfectly..

    What is Does
    Option to Hide/Unhide Status Bar Clock
    Option to Hide/Unhide Alarm Icon
    Option to select a custom colour for the clock

    Option to Hide/Unhide Battery Icon
    Option to select a custom colour for the top-bar battery

    Option to select a custom colour for the carrier
    Option to Hide/Unhide Carrier
    Option to specify your own custom carrier text
    Option to replace carrier text with a logo.

    Option to specify pull-down date/time format. (see below for examples)
    Option to specify lockscreen date/time format. (see below for examples)

    Option to change Overscrolling.

    Option to Enable/Disable an App Drawer.

    **Short video of App Drawer in action**
    MIUI AppDrawer

    Option to choose a solid wallpaper in the colour of your choice.

    Option to choose a colour and adjust the transparency of the statusbar

    As well as the above. If you go to Launcher Settings you will have the following options..

    Option to enable/disable Wallpaper scrolling

    Option to enable/disable Auto close folders.

    Option to show/hide icon labels.

    Multi-DPI Capability

    To Install.
    Click the download link and navigate to the folder that matches the version of MIUI you're on, from there select the Extended Settings folder.

    You will now have two options:

    Overscroll version
    No Overscroll Version

    (Due to differences in the framework on some devices the overscroll version may not work on all phones. If in doubt go for the non overscroll version.

    ESRight
    [​IMG]

    ESCenter
    [​IMG]

    ESSwitched.
    [​IMG]

    All three give you the same functionality. The only difference is the apperance of the status bar.

    Select the one you want, download and copy to your SDCARD. Then :-

    1. Reboot into recovery.
    2. choose "install zip from sdcard"
    3. choose "choose zip from sdcard"
    4. locate your file
    5. confirm "YES - install "
    6. wait for script to finish
    7. reboot phone

    If you experience any trouble with the above try these tips below :-

    WORKAROUND if flashing doesn't change anything:
    1. Reboot into recovery
    2. Manually mount /system and /data from recovery menu
    3. Flash the downloaded file

    WORKAROUND for recovery error (Status 0):
    1. Unzip your ROM and find
    META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary file
    2. Put this file in the zip containing the Mod (overriding MOD's META-INF file)
    3. Flash your modified zip.


    [​IMG]

    As with all MODS there is no guarantee it'll work with all phones.(I only have a Galaxy S) so please take a Nandroid backup before applying this.

    Hope you like it!!

    If you find any bugs or have improvement s***estions just let me know.

    Here's some example Date Formats:-

    For the month of September:
    M -> 9
    MM -> 09
    MMM -> Sep
    MMMM -> September

    For 7 minutes past the hour:
    m -> 7
    mm -> 07
    mmm -> 007
    mmmm -> 0007

    Examples for April 6, 1970 at 3:23am:
    "MM/dd/yy h:mmaa" -> "04/06/70 3:23am"
    "MMM dd, yyyy h:mmaa" -> "Apr 6, 1970 3:23am"
    "MMMM dd, yyyy h:mmaa" -> "April 6, 1970 3:23am"
    "E, MMMM dd, yyyy h:mmaa" -> "Mon, April 6, 1970 3:23am"
    "EEEE, MMMM dd, yyyy h:mmaa" -> "Monday, April 6, 1970 3:23am"
    "'Noteworthy day: 'M/d/yy" -> "Noteworthy day: 4/6/70"



    Download Links

    **If you experienced any issues with loss of signal last week go for the files WITHOUT Overscroll**

    Any chance this could include the Carrier? I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to modify the systemui apk using apk manager to pull the carrier out of the view. I also tried to get the comma out from after the date. I packaged signed and pushed it back, only to get force closes.

    Thanks, glad you like it. It took a lot of long nights!! But I got there in the end. As a bonus I stumbled across the code that controls the colour of the Top Bar Battery which is something that has been bothering me for ages. I'll post the instructions for that when I've tested it a bit more.

    I found this tip on roenanos 4-way mod page.

    *Some devices require mounting "system" manually in recovery before flashing the ZIP.

    Maybe give that a go??

    No, thank you! I've tried to do this as a modification to the file instead of as a setting (to remove carrier and the comma after the MM DD, only to get force closes. I'm glad someone has taken this on.

    That won't be the case for Desire, it only applies to DHD, Desire Z and Nexus S.
    Have you signed the zip? If not that's the problem.
    Anyway, this problem can be bypassed by disabling the "signature verification" in recovery and then flashing the zip.

    Cheers
