Exactly That's why I stripped the package down... I didn't want to replace so much system packages at once.

I don't need russian localisation, so there was no reason for me to apply it.

And there things I really liked to keep on my device: latest su package, busybox and fixpermissions. (I am using the 2.05 version from xda developers, your version looks older - I don't know if you changed something or if the xda version is better, but the xda version works satisfactorly so I didn't want to change it.)

Ok, I thought that the package is mostly targeted at the russian community....

You're right: my package doesn't justice the original one. But this wasn't my aim. I only was interested in the listview mod, not a complete root package.

But what exactly is missing? Are there any package dependencies I didn't take into account?

Google translation of the link says all this - fair and square.

It also has a detailed change log and Google does decent job translating - so it is readable in English - I did verify that. There is also a link to version control with all differences to all packages - if what you are asking is actually important to you.

If you do not understand something - ask, from time to time I am available here and I am almost always answering in English on Russian site too. Porkupan (aka boroda) is also present on both forums.
I didn't know that you are that active in this forum and willing to answer questions. It's good to know that

As for breaking apps - rather than "adopting" back something that already works it may make some sense and spent an effort on adopting applications to the black on white, so we could all benefit from your work.
Well - I don't really know how good it already works so I didn't want to risk too much as I didn't see any benefit from flashing the other content of the package.

I know from earlier posts in this thread that for the listview mod, only the framework.jar and .odex has to be change (well - it's only the .odex, the .jar is unchanged, however...)

That's why only these two are included in my "adaption". (Well, adaption maybe isn't the right word. It's more like picking a certain feature...)

I tried black on white mode but fast scroll wasn't really faster with it and some apps didn't display correctly and I didn't want to spend time with modding apps, so I reverted back to white on black.

Anyways - the fastest scrolling can be obtained with the global no-refresh package to be found earlier in this thread. It makes scrolling really fluent. Maybe there is still some room for tweaking the listview mod.


To sum it up: I don't want to mess with your work - I highly appreciate it. All I wanted to do is integrate the listview mod into my allready rooted T1 which has been rooted with boroda's packages as many other T1's in this forum.

And I created a package that allows others to apply the listview mod on their own risk.
