1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

I want to start a bounty for super battery for the droid.

    this is for koush or whoever has the manjuice to get this working on CM6. im not talking crazy money, but it'd be worth at least $20 to me and considering how cheap i am that's saying a lot..this is the only thing other phones have that I want, and I think we deserve it.

    original post here...

    [MOD][26-Aug] Super Circle Battery with % |Version A, B, C, D, E & F| Desire 2.2 ROM - xda-developers

    sample pic of what im talking about

    Now, ChevyNo1 has already managed to mod his battery xml files to allow for 10% increments in his battery icons, I think someone with the skill to do so should take a whack at this for us.

    anyone? pretty please? :)

    Ever? I know from previous experience that when you modify your framework-res.apk file it takes FOREVER for that first reboot (like 5-10 minutes, even). But I also would not be surprised if this hack didn't work on CM, since CM heavily modifies code related to the framework (allowing the modifiable colors, etc.

    I followed the instructions and did this to the framework-res.apk off my "stock, rooted" FRG22D phone and it worked fine. Since I have a white status bar, I went with the "FBD" set. Looks sharp. If you want a second set of eyes to give it a shot for you, put your framework-res.apk somewhere I can grab it and tell me which set-code you want. The pic you posted looks like the "EG" set.

    no way...that's awesome...and it shows 100, 99, 98 etc.?

    just tried again, it went through this time but after i flashed it started to loop the boot animation...this sucks. this is what the bounty's for, to get it working in CM6..i'd hate to go through the trouble of getting back to a stock version of 2.2 just for this battery.

    Well, I didn't know the answer at first because it took awhile to show something less than 100. The next step was 90. So, even though all the images are there for 100, 99, 98, etc., the thing that uses (or drives) the images is still using a "by 10's" resolution.

    yep, i think it might be the best we can do on droids...i think htc implemented the 1% increment battery reporting so i dont know if its even possible to have our batteries report every percent because of how moto designed it..

    Wouldn't this affect battery life? lol... Since instead of updating 10 times until your battery dies it updates 101 times.. Just my thoughts, pretty cool if it worked.

    You can only do 10% increments. Sorry to burst bubbles

    Thing is this. Is there any battery widget that goes by 1 percent increments on the droid?

    Honestly the percentages are only approximations by what is most likely a relatively dumb, non-learning, algorithm. Any resolution finer than 10% just further increases the level of deception you experience regarding your remaining battery charge.

    If it goes from 100% to 90% or from 100% to 80% with no steps in the middle, it's more evident that the percentage is a gross approximation and not literal. If however it says "72%", then you're probably more likely to think "by gosh, I have exactly 72% battery left".
