Customize Certain Apps on Your Note II with XBackground
The Xposed Framework is an incredibly easy and versatile way of customizing and increasing the functionality of your device. We’ve previously brought you news of several useful and innovative modules that can be used with the framework, and I recently stumbled across another that might of interest to Samsung Galaxy Note II owners.
XBackground is an Xposed module by XDA Senior Member xperiacle that allows you to customize certain elements of your device’s UI quickly and easily. The main purpose of the module is to allow you to replace the Holo Dark and Holo Light backgrounds of many stock apps or applications available from the Play Store that make use of the Holo theme. It also allows you to modify the background image or transparency of the notification drawer. The standard images can be replaced with either a solid color of your choice or an image from your gallery, allowing you to give your device a very personal look and feel.
This module was originally posted in the Note II forums and is specifically designed to work with the stock firmware for that device. You will of course need to have already installed the Xposed Framework, and it’s highly recommended to make sure that you are running the latest version. Check out the modification thread for more details.
