    Here's a 1% battery icon mod for the 11-6 Tickerguy CM7 build for anyone interested. And yes, I know you can just set the options in CyanogenMod to show just the percentage, but I like the icons with numbers better than just the numbers alone.

    Thanks to Tickerguy and Isaac for getting the build going.

    Instructions:

    Download the appropriate Zip and flash in recovery over the 10/30 CM7 build.

    There's 3 Zip Files--download the one with the icons you want:

    cm7_11-19_batteryicon .zip
    cm7_11-19_batteryicon .zip

    cm7_11-19_batteryicon-sprint.zip - same battery icon, but the Carrier Name is changed to "Sprint" for the ones that want it.
    cm7_11-19_batteryicon-sprint.zip

    cm7 has a fantastic theme engine, and a built in battery percentage..

    Thanks mantera I will be trying it soon.


    Also, rockneo, you can do the percentage, but in my opinion, it doesn't look as good.



    EDIT: It seems that they are both the same file. At least when I tried them. They were both the icon and percent, and not the circle.

    NOOOO! I actually like the one that we have. Oh please don't change it.

    JK, but I seriously like the CM7 stock one. However, I like options. +1 for you. (Or "Thanks" +1)

    I'm not going to change the default... it's cool that this will load for those who want it though.

    I loaded these (using the circle now) and found if you enable the Battery percentage option under CyanogenMod settings>Interface>Status bar tweaks that it will show the standard CM7 percentage. If that is disabled it will show the one you flashed.

    Will this work with later CM7 builds?

    Does this only work for the default theme, all the pre-installed themes, or does it overwrite themes? (I would test it but I'm running MIUI)

    I have not tested with any themes... However, if the theme uses framework-res.apk, then this would overwrite it.

    Be aware that if you're overwriting the framework (and you have to do so in order to make this mod) you're very likely to break fixes in later builds if you use it.

    Unfortunately a lot of what I'm working on at present involves framework changes.

    Understood, that's why I specifically stated which build this is for. So anyone who uses it don't come crying saying it broke something. :)

    In cyanogenmod settings > interface > status bar tweaks, you need to uncheck battery percentage.

    Is there ANY way possible for these battery mods to be made available for the stock ROM? :)

    like mantera said below... just take the 1% battery/charging icons out of the framework-res.apk (drawable-hdpi) and put them into your froyo framework-res.apk

    Tickerguy's 10-30 CM7 update made this zip unstable. It makes the words wrong in the lock screen and power menu. Before I play with the zip myself, can anyone tell me how to fix this?

    I'll update this in the next day or so. Snowstorm has my internet knocked out at home.
