    So earlier today I flashed cyanogen's rom and noticed that the battery icon on the notification bar had the battery % on the battery, the built in one not the on from the battery indicator app, and i thought that looked really slick. I was wondering if there was a way I could get that thru using metamorph or something

    If I understand it correctly, the stock ROM (for which most all the others are based on) simply change the notification icons. So the stock ROM updates the battery in 20%s, but instead of it losing a sliver of life, they have the percentage up there.

    Cyanogen is built from source (not a modified ROM). So he was able to have it update in 10% increments, instead of simply changing the icons.

    I hope that makes sense. If I'm off base, someone will correct me.
