    The notifications bar is a uccw and not a uzip. How do I import a uccw?

    edit: Nvm

  19. Posted 2013/01/28 at 3:35 pm | Permalink

    just change the ending from .zip to .uzip and everything works fine :)

    Hi. I’m following your instructions accurately but the wallpaper doesn’t fit the screen. I’m on nexus 4 too. Do you set the wallpaper directly through the gallery or are you using something like multi picture live wallpaper with fit to screen option?

  21. Posted 2013/01/29 at 6:03 am | Permalink

    @shantul I set the wallpaper with QuickPic

  22. Posted 2013/01/29 at 1:49 pm | Permalink

    @oemstyla Thanks that worked. Great work by the way.

  23. Posted 2013/01/29 at 4:33 pm | Permalink

    @shantul I added it to Tutorial :)

    wow..the icon sets are very good.

  25. Posted 2013/02/03 at 10:24 am | Permalink

    I love this screen, but the notifications uzip gives me only a white box. It’s probably user error, but I downloaded the file from Dropbox and renamed it with .uzip and when I import it I get a white box. Thanks for your help and this lovely screen setup!
