    This little mod does exactly as the title says, it removes the clock from the notification bar. This allows for more notifications in the bar, as well as removes a point of redundancy if you have a cool clock widget ;)

    Installation Instructions

    1. Download file
    2. Place on SD card
    3a. Install ROM from SDcard (in ROM manager) OR
    3b. Install .zip from SDcard (in bootstrap recovery)

    Fab - This is awesome! Worked like a charm! Is there any chance you would be willing to provide zips for reversing the change if we so desire? I know it is just a tweak in the smali file, but it might be helpful for those that are uncomfortable with the process...

    Your call, of course... Thank you for all of your contributions to the android community!!! :D

    Thanks Fab! Gotta ask - where'd you get the circular battery indicator or the lockscreen mods?

    If I'm going from a battery icon with 20 images to one with more do I need to use the newer stat_sys_battery.xml and stat_sys_battery_charge.xml files to coincide with the new icons?

    That screenshot is of REVOlution for ApeX ;)

    Did you get this to work? I was always under the impression that the 10% mod couldn't be done without the source for the framework (which, I guess is out now, but someone smarter than me can figure that out).

    Fab,

    I haven't had time to install your rom 'n theme. Hopefully, I'll get to it later today. However, I do want a black notification bar (I don't like white) and that circular battery indicator.

    Does the circular indicator come with your rom? If so, will any black notification mod work or is there a specific one I have to use?

    TIA
    Steven

    I think you can take a stock framework and mod that; I managed to get the 10% icons on zapX's white bar (it was fugly though).

    Decompiling/recompiling an already modified framework is the main problem; the 9.png files don't decompile properly without the 9patches. You would need to take a stock framework and incorporate the 10% hack as part of the mod process (which I can't do).

    I'm probably wrong but that's my experience so far. :(

    I am using BigDX theme, can I use this zip to remove the clock without losing the rest of the theme in the status bar? Also is there an easy way to remove the battery in the status bar?

    That's right, this only removes the clock, doesn't touch the theme at all.

    I think you can get rid of the battery by just deleting all the images from framework-res, but don't take my word for it.

    Worked great to remove the clock, now if I could just get the battery removed it would be great

    It does not come with the ROM, it is part of a theme

    It's the REVOlution theme, with the alternate battery icon. It's all in my post, or on ROM manager.

    REVOlution theme is great, I love it. I'm doing the battery icon change to round, and removing the clock from the bar! Thanks, Fab!

    Fab, when you get a chance, could you put out a mod to get rid of the alarm clock? I have mine on all the time so it never goes away and is rather annoying. If you're too busy, I'll surely live. Thanks!
