    I know there are many apps can display battery percentage in notification bar, but this is different. It covers the battery icon. Please refer my attachement .

    You will need root more than likely and then you will have to edit the battery status images yourself. There are others that display the percentage out there but I don't know for certain if there are any just like you described.

    I have been looking for this as well. a friend of mine updates his phone more frequently than i do, got this with one of the roms he put on and has since updated mine and his to the same newest cyangoen rom. so our phones are identical now but he still has this battery indicator and i cant seem to find it anywhere.

    if you find out where or how to get it please update us!!

    I know this is an old thread, but I have this them on my phone. It does exactly that, but I had to open the zip and delete all the extra apps from the file JUST leaving the battery apk on there. It's a "theme" but it's a stock theme.

    Stock theme w/Battery as %
