    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/
