So, I wanted to edit the icons in my Droid 1's notification bar to have percentage signs. I can and did do that easy enough and used Metamorph to place them and that works just fine.
Then, in reading around, I saw that some were able to then get the system to also do 10% increments and all they have to do is 'essentially' add in the missing png battery icons and alter the stat_sys_battery.xml file. Well, I can and did create new 10% battery png files and can place them no problem so now I also have images for 5,15,30,50,70 to go along with the system pngs of 100,80,60,40,20,10,0. I can even edit the stat_sys_battery.xml file with the reference to the new icons.
BUT, the issue is being able to get the system to recognize and accept my stat_sys_battery.xml since it is inside an apk file (framework-res.apk). In all my trials and all my reading of numerous topics, it seems that stat_sys_battery.xml needs to be signed in some way so the system accepts it as a valid xml file when you place it? This is not an issue with the png images, those just go right into place with Metamorph and are recognized. But getting the stat_sys_battery.xml file to be placed and recognized by the system is what is stopping my Droid from seeing and using the new 10% icons I added.
I have a mac and a PC and wonder if someone can point me to how to get the stat_sys_battery.xml placed, signed, accepted or whatever it takes for the system to accept it in the apk and use it. You can't seem to place it with something like Root Explorer and have it recognized and work.
