Ok do you have the unknown app source in the settings. And are you using this on a custom rom . And some devices you cant use this toolbox to change the battery icons . I can tell you like i found out its a free version app called nija morph .this is located In the playstore . This thing rocks and do many changes in the framework so watch it and have a backup on hand . This nija morph apk .when changing the battery icon you need all 0-99 if you dont have all u are flat lined . But get the battery icon zip from the rom toolbox keep the zip cause now you have the icons 0-99 for the nija morph app.

Nahhhh it wont allow you to change the battery icons and u didnt flash a rom/build yet you are still factory but rooted awaiting a rom . Now you rooted and have a recovery installed before you make any changes PLEASE MAKE A BACKUP OF THE STOCK ROM

According to your post here...

It looks like you have the i9505, International, S4 on the stock EE, (EverythingEverywhere, formerly Orange), MGA firmware.

If you have installed ROM Toolbox Pro from the Play Store and wish to use it to change things like icons, etc: You will need to flash a supported, compatible, ROM under ROM Management in the app, first.

For more details on this, see the developers website and support forum, at...

Jrummy Apps | Providing the best tools at the most competitive prices.


Alternatively, you can follow the step-by-step guide, with pictures and videos for beginners, to flash a stock, modified, deodexed DjeMBeY ROM, see #1.2 of the DjeMBeY ROM's i9505 - Dummies Guide and then you can install the 3Minit framework described in this thread... http://androidforums.com/international-galaxy-s4-all-things-root/741909-3-minute-framework.html, which allows all sorts of modifications to the complete look of your phone.
