    As the title say is it possible ? and if so could some one please point me in the right direction.

    As i see circlesmod is on the market place it is it is for CM7 Theme chooser so does this mean i would have to install the CM7 Rom

    I do have root on XXKG5 if it make any difference

    Yes! :p:D

    I know there's indeed a blue version, but outside of custom ROMs I've only ever seen it at the Ultimate Online Theme Kitchen.

    I really like this mod. So much better than the stock battery indicator.
    As we are in the root section am I right in thinking you HAVE to be rooted to apply this?
    How is this mod applied? Is it via Odin? If so, does it go into the PDA, PHONE or CSC file?

    If it's like similar ones I've used it'll be flashed as a ZIP via CWR.

    There is an app called EDT tweaks that allows you to remove the clock. It works on Revolution rom, not sure about litening rom but you could try it.

    Thanks look like it could well work

    What does this mean though please ?

    You must push SystemUI.apk to /system/app

    does that just mean paist into that dir on phone ? Ian

    Push usually means install via adb.
    I didn't realise you needed the SystemUI app for it to work. Its installed via a tweak on Revolution rom so its just a case of downloading and installing.
    Unless the SystemUI app is specificity for litening rom I wouldnt bother with it as it could cause problems or maybe ask in the litening rom thread on XDA if anyone has successfully installed EDT Tweaks or do a nand backup before your try it.

    A heads-up to avoid unnecessary anguish... DO NOT replace SystemUI.apk, framework-res.apk or twframework.apk unless you've got confirmation that the versions you're installing will work with your current firmware. These files contain themed and/or modded UI components such as notification and status icons, the power menu, customised fonts, altered buttons etc and are also heavily version-dependent. Get it wrong and you'll quickly find yourself in either bootloop or force-close hell, requiring a nandroid restore to recover. I speak from experience...... :rolleyes:

    That's because VRTweaks rewrites the SystemUI.apk and/or framework-res.apk and cancels the previous mod out.

    Look at Stericson's MetaMorph app - if suitable mods are available as Morph packages this will allow them all to co-exist. I also believe the VillainROM team is working on something with similar functionality.

    I have gone across to Revolution Rom now.

    I have to say i am blown away with it so easy to change the way things look.

    There will have to be something really special from villain or lightning to get me to change back.

    Thank you both for your help been some learning curve the last couple weeks :D

    I made the same change a couple of weeks ago. Very impressed with Revolution Rom.

    Slightly off topic I know, but can I make a suggestion to Mods to create a sticky thread for each of the popular 3rd party ROMS (eg. Villain, Revolution, Lite'ning, Sicopat etc.) for people to post up what the differences are from stock, the good points and the bad points?

    Just an idea. Could prove very useful for people like me who are undecided which way to go!

    We're actually trying to get away from having multiple stuck threads, hence the Guide stickies in each device section. Threads dealing with specific ROMs could be added to the GS2 Rooting Guide, where they will always be easily found. All that's required is for someone to create the topics. :)
