Change 4G symbol on android devices?

Recommended Posts

I used to know how to do this on my note 3, can someone please tell me how to do this on my note 5? I can't find the systemui.apk anywhere. Is it stored somewhere differently on this phone? I've searched throughout root explorer and its no longer in system/app/systemui.apk

Priv-App under system for systemUI now. It changed sometime in Lollipop.

Thanks, I actually found it a little while ago through too much searching haha. Any reason why mine would all be .qmg files now instead of .png files like they used to be? I don't know how to work with them as .qmg. Thanks for your help!

Haven't themed anything in awhile. Maybe they don't use .9 patch anymore for image stretching. My only guess.

Could it be because I'm using the older, alpha version for my root? This one ---> Noble_Kernel_Auto-Root_N920P_v0.1_Alpha.zip.

It looks to be Samsung specific.

Are all of the files .qmg inside the SystemUI.apk/res/drawable-xhdpi?

yes most of them are. There are a few that are png

If you're changing the signal icons on a Note 3, it should be in the xhdpi folder. They should be your standard PNG files. I would use Gimp2 imaging software if you need something that's a good free alternative to Photoshop.

 

If your device runs 1440p resolution, the icons you're looking for are in the xxhdpi folder.

      Just a bit of insight. I live near UMD in Duluth, MN. Sprint's signal is clearly much 'dirtier' with a 1.0 SNR compared to T-Mobile's 20.4 SNR. I don't have a screenshot from the same time, but I get about a 22 to 29 SNR with T. I know that AT&T uses RRU's but I'm not too sure about Sprint or T-Mobile. Also, I didn't even know they had L2500 where I live, but I force checked it on my Samsung S7 (AT&T).

      Karma Go Hotspot Discussion & User Thread

      Since we don't have an official spot for this little hotspot, I'd like to make one... meet the Karma Go hotspot. Running off the Sprint LTE network, the Go is a Spark/LTE Enhanced enabled, tri-band hotspot.
       
      Currently it runs for $149. Down below in post #2 you'll find all the information that I've compiled about Go.
       
      For anyone who has never heard of Karma, check out the Karma Go. 
          If you'd like to purchase the Karma, PM me and I can give you my referral code for an extra $10 off your purchase!
      Be sure to watch for sales to get the Go at $99 and if you add my code in, $89! 
       
       
      Current Sale(s):
       
      Not at this time... Check back soon!

      Did you know that with many Sprint (Uniband) LTE Android devices, the signal strength indicator at the top does not show your LTE signal strength? Even if 4G or LTE is displayed next to it?
       
      That's right!  This signal displayed here is your 1x (voice signal), and it is not your 3G EVDO signal strength, nor your LTE signal strength.  Regardless of whether it says 3G or 4G next to it. This is the cause of a lot of confusion.  Also, third party apps like NetMonitor do not show accurate LTE signal strengths. They also only show the 1x signal strength, even though they may reference being connected to LTE.
      The purpose of this thread is to help educate the masses, because many people think they have a strong LTE signal, when in fact they do not. And then they are unhappy, thinking that Sprint LTE is really slow, even with a strong signal. LTE performance is very signal strength dependent. So, when you have a weak signal, you can expect much slower than peak results.
       
      There is only one accurate way to get your LTE signal strength, and that is from your LTE Engineering screen in your Debug menu. And we will discuss the different ways to get that below.
       
      ...In HTC, Motorola & LG Sprint LTE devices:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial ##DEBUG# Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number under RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. ...In Samsung Sprint LTE devices:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial ##DEBUG# Enter 777468 for your lock code Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number next to RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. ...In the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 5:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial *#*#DEBUG#*#* Enter 777468 for your lock code Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number next to RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. The LTE Signal Strength Scale:
       
      Now you have determined your actual LTE signal strength in dBms your device is receiving, you can use the following scale below to determine its strength:
      Better than -88dBm RSRP is a strong signal Between -89dBm and -96dBm is a very good signal Between -97dBm and -105dBm is good Between -106dBm and -112dBm is fair Worse than -113dBm RSRP is poor Feel free to link people to this thread for explanation. Hopefully, this will clear up some confusion out there!
