    My sincere apologies if this has been addressed before. I'm trying to change my stock battery indicator to this or something similar. My attempts have failed miserably so far :( Yes I'm rooted, and I understand I may not be able to get it broken down into 1% increments, but at least 10% would be nice. I just want this instead of the stock one on my Droid 2. Running original ROM btw. Help please :(

    There's an app called clock circle widget, that you can download. it doesn't change the battery icon but it has a widget that is a circle. It also goes down by 1% increments

    i take it that you are bootstraped if your rooted
    ?

    Then you need to be de-odexed framework:
    TBH & MyDroidWorld Present: Droid 2 (2.3.20) Triple Threat

    once you do this you will have to root again.

    (quick note
    from a post on XDA..

    Deodexed ROMs have their .apk's (which are basically the application packages) repackaged in a certain way. An "odex" can be thought of as a collection of parts of applications that have been pulled out and optimized before booting. This speeds up the boot process - in a way, it preloads part of the applications - but it also makes hacking those apps difficult because part of the original code is already extracted somewhere else.

    Deodexing is just a process of putting those pieces back into the original applications. It takes a while to extract those parts and build the .dex cache (aka Dalvik cache), but only because the relevant parts aren't in an easy-to-access place for the system. The advantage of this is that an app can be modified effectively and the developer doesn't have to worry about conflicts from the separate odex part of the code.

    So, short version: "Deodexed" ROMs have all their apps put back together. If an app can be themed, for example, a deodexed version of that app will not get messed up when the modified .apk tries to mesh with the odex of the original un-modified .apk. Because it's not there.

    If you want an aftermarket theme, you need a deodexed ROM. I'm not sure if deodexing can be done to individual apps within a non-deodexed ROM.)

    Or you can try custom roms and still do the same thing you want with those roms, and most are deodexed already:
    Droid 2 Roms - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    Or you can also try NinjaMorph:

    I use to use the icons from the XDA show thread and i would flash them with metamorph. Worked literally everytime for me. If you download Metamorph you also need to join the XDA forums and download the file named "scbm_A_white_number.zip". You can find that file by google searching "super circle battery" and click on the first link. It should be an XDA link. One you get on the page posted below you can download the file i mentioned above after logging in to your account. Once you have it downloaded launch the Metamorph app and select extract new .zip. That choice will be at the bottom of the metamorph screen. Once you click that you can scroll down to the downloaded folder and extract the .zip file and install it. Then your phone will reboot and switch icons.

    Also it helps if you google search "super circle battery" on your phone and go to the first link and scroll down until you see the file that i named above and download it straight to your downloads folder. to download it all you have to do it click on the .zip file and it will prompt you to log in to your account and once you log in the .zip file will be downloaded to your download folder on your phone.

    Hope this can help out and the XDA page link is below.

    Didn't work for me. Metamorph gave an error about the file not being of the correct type for Metemorph. :( .. I really wanted the blue icons in the theme I am running because they match up perfectly .. grrr.

    So when you open MM and go to extract new theme/back button (bottom right of the screen)/download (folder)/pick the new batt icons .zip/ and then install. Even that won't work for you on MM? Might want to try ninjamorph cause it might play nicer with your phone if MM won't work

    I am using UD theme on the liberty rom and the battery icon is not changing. Also how would you use ninja morph to change the icon i really want to use the splash battery icon in the status bar if i am able to do it with ninjamorph or another way.

    They should create an app that pulls the percent from circle battery widget and replaces the stock area with that percent. Circle battery widget goes by 1% intervals and it seems to be just as accurate.
