Many people know about tweak Q from N9QT (it enlarges call-avatar). However, the existing mechanism for handling avatar keeps them in very poor quality, and it is noticeable if you apply mod from N9QT...

One day, I have accidentally discovered folder that stores contacts avatars. And I have decided to remake modification. Below is the result of my labors.



DISCLAIMER:

1) This modification isn't for lazy people.
2) It works only with blanco (and sailfish) themes. I will do ti for all in the future.
3) You use it at your own risk.

Let's go:

1) Install attached deb and reboot (refresh) your phone.
2) Go to Settings - Avatar Settings and follow instructions.
3) Enjoy!!!

This course of action is important! Any deviation from the instructions will not lead to the desired result. Attention - file names are generated randomly and each time you change the avatar it binds to new png-file! For this reason, I was not able to automate the process.

If you don't like it - just uninstall deb and reboot (refresh) your phone.

Sailfish-theme (future feature):
Attached Files
File Type: deb enlargedcallavatar_0.0.2_armel.deb (30.4 KB, 589 views)

Sure
Code:

cp -rfv /opt/enlarged_avatar/backup/*.png /usr/share/themes/blanco/meegotouch/images/theme/basement/meegotouch-avatar/
And refresh your phone

cool APP, but I'm five hours trying to customize the photos for better pictures and is too complicated.

When the contact has no avatar, it is with a standard design. I tried to change the files in the "/opt/enlarged_avatar/round" and "/opt/enlarged_avatar/icons" and I can not.

I say this because with your program I am unable to make any modifications!
