I tried using the xultimate way...(that's a program you download for the computer), but i couldn't get ut to work. What I ended up doing with bugless beast was to apply Pete's theme first. That way, at least the clock is white and I can read it.
Hmm... I've tried this method twice to put the white round percentage battery icon on UD 7.8 and when I reboot everything fc's and it wont do anything past the lock screen. If anyone has any ideas let me know. I really want that battery icon.
Thanks for the great write-up btw... I know my issue isn't an issue with your directions.
I am using Ultimate Droid v7.8 with chevys 5 slot 1ghz kernel.
I tried it twice and had the same outcome. I got a little frustrated so I gave up haha... let me know if you see any issues.
Are there other theme elements from other themes that you've already got applied that you want to make this work with?
If so, is it possible for you to do the first part...the adb pull, and post that framework-res.apk up for me to download, or can you e-mail it to me so that I can play around with the exact look that you want?
Yeah, it is supposed to be a metamorph theme. This is the only theme adjustment I have attemted so far. So I am just running the stock UD7.8 smoked theme and I wanted to apply this battery icon.
I guess I should also mention that when I would reboot via command promp the phone would get to the lock screen and the battery icon would be in the task bar, but nothing else would load and that is when everything FC's upon trying to unlock.
Ok. I've got some errands to run here in a little while, but I'll give it a shot and see what I can come up with a little later in the day. If nothing else, it'll be a good excuse for me to check out UD! haha!
Ok...Well...I figured out what the problem is. The problem occurs when you're attempting to push framework-res.apk back into the system. Basically, the dev has loaded the system partition up to the brim. there's not enough room for the copy/paste/overwrite function that happens when you theme this way.
You've got a couple options...We can mess with adb pushing each of the individual .png files that will make this happen into the framework-res.apk, so we're just replacing little files...I haven't tried this yet, but am about to.
Or, you can use root explorer to remove some of the ringtones that you won't use that are included and/or some other files that he put in there that you won't need based on your personal use and you can attempt to follow the guide again. I haven't tried this either, but I've got it confirmed from a reliable source that too much stuff on the partition is likely the problem.
If you want to adb push each of the individual files that will make your battery status icon the white round one with %s like you want (which I'm about to attempt right now), I can provide you with the code that you'll have to put into Command Prompt, as it'll be considerably longer than the stuff listed in the guide.
Basically, I'll leave it up to you. Whichever way you feel more comfortable with/more confident in, we'll go with. That's assuming that pushing those files will work. I would think it will, but I'm reinstalling UD this very moment after failing at another experiment I thought might work...Haha!
