WARNING: THIS METHOD CAN BE DANGEROUS. DON’T DO ANYTHING IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU DO.Many people have been asking for this mod to be ported to CM7. However, months have passed and nobody got interested in it so I decided to do this on my own. The modification is compatible only with CyanogenMod-7.2-NIGHTLY-Spica-alpha7.x by tom3q and newer. The only thing that is changed is the contact picture size. Dialer numer pad, in-call menu, contact lists, etc. are keeped untouched.
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU TRANSFORM YOUR SPICA INTO A BRICK
CyanogenMod 7.2 Bigger CallerID Mod
Bigger CallerID Mod 320x320 Version
Bigger CallerID Mod 256x256 Version
What does the mod bring:
- slightly modified Contacts.apk and Phone.apk
- enlarged contact photo when calling / receiving calls
- new bitmap for contacts without a contact picture and unknown numbers (see screenshots attached)
There are two versions of this mod available - one with 320x320px (callerid320.zip) and another with 256x256px contact picture (callerid256.zip).
Chosen zip file should be applied via recovery. To revert back to default 96x96 picture size, use "callerid_undo.zip".
Keep in mind that the picture's resolution is a little bit smaller in the dialer app as there are also shadow textrures drawn around the photo.
NOTE: You can manually set any photo to be your contact picture and thanks to this modification the icon will be saved in 256x256 / 320x320 resolution. However, during Google synchronization, sync service uploads and then downloads low resolution (96x96 px) pictures from your Gmail account and overwrites what was set manually. Thus, pictures become blurry every time the sync is established. In order to prevent that, it is advisable to disable Contact synchronization in Settings>Accounts & sync>firstname.lastname@example.org so that the pictures are not overwritten.
NOTE: To sync your Facebook profile pictures in bigger resolution use:
If you want to use this modification with the latest alpha 7.5, a deodexed package of CyanogenMod is required!
with "Maximum Quality" enabled and "Crop a 96px square" option disabled or
2) Facebook contact Sync
with "Picture Size" set to "Big square" (recommended).
You can download it from here: http://forum.samdroid.net/f63/discus...tml#post195178.
Then, simply apply "alpha75_callerid_320.zip" or "alpha75_callerid_256.zip" via recovery. To revert back to stock Gingerbread layout for alpha 7.5, use "alpha75_callerid_undo.zip".
Version for Eclair/Froyo -> see here.
Modification was made for Spica but should also work fine with other phones with CM 7.2 (apks require to be applied manually via ADB for phones other than Spica).
