    Currently, I am rooted running the Quantum v2.7 Rom. I hate the battery indicator that came with it. I was looking around and came across this one:


    Will it work with my Rom? Do I just download the zip and install using CWM3?

    Should be able to make it work. Should just be a simple image swap followed by pushing the framework.apk back into the proper place with adb.

    Kelmar, i've had developers bring up ADP, but i've managed to come this far without really knowing what it is! i've googled and looked around but still don't know exactly know how to 'push' using ADB..... if you are so inclined, could you describe? or pehaps post a link to a straightforward description/instructions?

    I tried installing the zip from the SD card through recovery and booted up and it didn't change.

    I'll see if I can throw it together later on tonight. :)

    Not sure how it will work with Ext4 though.

    Got it working :)

    You guys comfortable with ADB or do you want something you can flash through CW3 or both?

    Ah hell.... I'll just get both.

    I have never used ADB tbh. I am not afraid to try anything if the instructions are good enough. ;)

    This is ONLY for Quantum Rom 2.7.0 users!!!

    .::Obligatory use at your own risk, I'm not responsible if it kills your phone or if your wife and dog leave you by doing this::.

    1) Download THIS file
    2) Put file in your c:\android-sdk-windows\tools\ folder
    4) Reboot phone and boot into recovery
    5) Open CMD on your computer and type
    • cd c:\android-sdk-windows\tools\
    • adb devices
    • adb shell
    • mount /system
    • cd /system/bin
    • cat sh > su
    • exit
    • adb push framework-res.apk /system/framework
    • exit
    6) Reboot phone

    .::: OR :::.

    Make a nandroid backup (just in case) and flash LINK REMOVED file using CW3

    Thanks Trident for the flashable zip!

    arright, thanks! just to get things straight, this is the method for pushing stuff to your phone via ADB? is this the general method, good for any rom, assuming you have downloaded the right file that you are gonna push? i'm trying to learn the method, but not wanting to specifically load this battery indicator.... and i'm not running Quantum.

    also, after each line you have typed in the CMD window, you have hit 'enter', correct?

    hey thanks for this! :)

    Is nandroid on the market?

    if you're referring to making a nandroid backup, you just boot into Clockwork and choose 'backup and restore', then choose backup...... when it finishes you will have a complete backup of you current setup, and can go right back to it if something goes wrong later.

    after the backup is done, you can stay in recovery and flash the file Kelmar posted(where he said 'flash THIS'), and if i'm not mistaken, you should have the battery indicator you wanted.

    ahh ok I have done that already! Thanks

    Edit: So I booted into recovery and flashed the zip in CWM3 and rebooted and I still have the same Battery Indicator that came with my ROM. Not sure why it doesn't work.

    More or less ADB is the same... Just depends on what you want to do. Basically if you need to push a file, the concept is the same but you just adjust the file name and location where you want the file to end up.

    Correct, enter after each line.

    Did you chose install zip from SD card? Try downloading and flashing again?

    I'll get in touch with Trident later on and see if we can figure out what went wrong. :(

    You can always ADB it ;)

    I don't quite understand #2 in your ADB instructions. I don't have a folder named "\android-sdk-windows\tools\" on my C drive on my computer.

    You'll needed to install the android sdk. :) I'm at work so I can't get you a link at the moment.

    eeeep, i downloaded that a couple days ago, no clue what to do with it yet.... any guidance will be much appreciated. i'm sure it will be a gradual learning experience of reading, experimenting, etc.

    Did you get it installed and set up yet?

    I tried redownloading it and reflashing it, still no luck. What's up with android sdk?
  20. Kelmar

    Android SDK

    Basically it's what allows you to "develop" on your phone and will allow you to push/pull sytem files SAFELY with your phone when in it is in recovery.

    Install that (and whatever it tells you that you need to install) then try following the steps listed.

    Not sure why the zip isn't working... I'll see what I can find out. Confirmed it doesn't work though.

    i think i got it at least partly set up. i found a little guide(which i can't find at the moment) on droidforums, and i followed a youtube video and got set up to write Java programs, but that's it so far. i don't think it really is all set up tho, i'm kinda confused as to what's what. what would be the first thing you recommend after downloading? i do know that the jdk is installed on my computer.

    If you have it installed and the add-ons that it makes you install you should be good to go.

    Try the first steps (through " cat sh > su" ONLY) and see what happens.

    yeah, actually i just now found the sdk in my downloads folder, unzipped it, and started the sdk manager.... i think it's downloading some updates now. but i did also see that black command window open up, so i think that's good. but anyway, thanks, i gotta step out for now, but will be back later... thx for everything.

    ah yes, and i see the addons in the sdk folder, but it's empty. i also see 'tools', 'platform tools', the 'sdk manager', etc.

    Sounds like everything is running right from what I can remember!

    I'll be headed out in a few as well.
