    Hello everyone. I'm interested in changing my battery icon. I'm rooted running BB.9, but I'm really not a fan of any of the themes that I've found to be compatible with BB that have this feature. I'd honestly rather not use a theme, as I think a lot of the ones out there are well, bad. I'd really prefer to have the percent of the battery left (10% increments or whatever are fine) inside the stock icon (maybe with a different color :)) instead of using a widget or using another status icon to clutter the status bar. I'm using battery indicator right now and it's starting to bug me. I've been trying to use adb to do this, but I just flat-out don't know what I'm doing.

    I'm not asking anyone to do this for me... however, I wouldn't say no if anyone wanted to take this on for me, but I'm trying to figure out where I can figure out what I need to do. I'm not sure how daunting this task is, so I'm not sure if anyone's going to have enough time to give me direct help, but I'd really appreciate it if anyone's willing to at least help me find some good reading materials . the developer's guides on the android site don't really seem to tackle anything like this.

    Thanks

    Alright thanks for the tip. If I can ask one more question, would I install this on top of bugless beast or would this replace it? The first rom I tried was a cyanogen, but i had a bunch of issues with it (i think it was 5.0.6.2) so I switched. Although, I will admit I didn't (and still don't) fully comprehend what I'm doing lol. However, I appreciate the input.

    You can edit the actual battery .png's with the percentage inside of the battery, but the system only shows battery changes in 20% increments. System files have to be edited to show anything else. CM shows 10% increments and it is overlaid over the battery icon.

    So it is either run a Cyanogen based ROM or use a metamorph theme that someone has made. But BB has issues with MM editing framework. Soooo.. I guess you might be better off running a CM rom haha.
