    Loving the 2.3.0 build. The only thing I don't like is the battery display. I like having a percentage shown on mine but it's hard to see against the segmented horizontal display. I have tried different colors but it is still pretty hard to make out.

    Long story short, metamorph doesn't work with my phone. I have tried it numerous times with numerous ROMs, so I need something that is flashable.

    How can I change it? Is that anything made with this version of UD that I can flash right over?

    I really like these:

    [THEME] [MOD] [11/27] SuperCircleBatteryMod-MIUI 11.26/CM6.1/Enomther 2.14 - xda-developers

    And I see they are made for CM 6.1 RC2, but if I flash one of those with UD 2.3 would it work? I'm guessing no. What can I do?

    nice find. i am also wondering if someone can make this work for UD. im a big fan of the round batt icons, just kind of forgot about them as the ones you posted are nice. i like the Versions one but i wonder if UD can display increments of 1 as i only see increments of 10.

    From what I understand (which isn't much some days) is that it's all based on your kernal. When I have MIUI loaded onto my phone, I only got the 10% incriments. I am fine with the 10% though...it's better than 20%!!

    I really liked the red battery that was in the nighly builds. I wish I could have that one on the 2.3.

    You can easily add the red battery icons to 2.3 - if you like I can make an update.zip that contains the framework-res.apk with the red icons instead of the white ones


    I would also like to know about this "thin green bar" -

    Liquid Battery on 2.3?

    I read on the UD site itself where this fellow (wes342) said his liquid batteries worked w/ an earlier version of UD - it was either 1.0 or 2.0.

    I've not tried them, always wanted to; yet I don't mind the battery in UD 2.3.. Agree, I prefer the red one from the nightlies....

    Regardless, I think he also has a thread here on df, but I know his stuff is here too:
    [Themes] Battery icons (inc)(update) fixed liquid battery charge animation - xda-developers

    If anyone flashes wes342's liquid battery on their device and it works, will you let us know?

    Edit/Update: I sent wes342 a PM over on XDA asking whether his liquid batteries would work on 2.3 - I'll pass along what he says. He does some other way cool stuff for the Incredible too...

    Update #2 - wes342 responded to my pm on xda, he said he'd take a look. Incredible is my interest, obviously, but I added a link to this thread and mentioned the moto's here as well - perhaps he'll take a look.
    fwiw - I tried flashing some other battery icons I had from other ROM's - bootloped. True, they were Sense-based ROMs, but I did try, thought I'd let folk know those don't work w/ UD 2.3

    Update #3 - wes342 was kind enough to make a version of his Liquid Battery for my Incredible on UD2.3. He mentioned that he was open to requests from the Moto folks in this thread.

    Any battery icons will work - you just have to add the .png's to the framework-res.apk with MM - Ninja Morph - or update.zip

    Motorola phones only support 10% increments and 5% under 20%.

    All other phones seem to support 1%.

    wes342

    wes342 over on XDA made a version of his Liquid Battery that works like a champ on my Incredible running UD 2.3. It looks, well, Incredible!! I sent a donation for his fine work.

    He mentioned that he was open to making versions of his Liquid Battery for the Moto users on this thread.

    Enjoy/

    Grinchy, you Seasonally-appropriate thing... - perhaps you should ping wes and ask him to make you one! That's what he did for me, and he said to let folk know he'd entertain making them for Moto's.

    Kind regards,

    Did you flash the zip from his thread at XDA? I tried a few times and kept getting boot loops.

    Also running UD2.3 on Incredible.
