    Let me start off by giving credit to oMenaceTigero's Spiderman battery indicator. I based mine off of his.

    So now let me introduce my creation.
    I did this for me as I have this logo tattooed on my back. It starts as red and turns grey as the battery gets lower. This is a metamorph so install accordingly. I am not responsible for bricking your phone. I am running the latest Cyanogen(mod) and UD2.5 stable with no issues.

    That's sweet but I think you should add more screenshots so we can see how good it shows the decline in battery life. :D

    Definitely. I plan on redoing this in multiple colors too. Do you know if I can add additional pngs to it because I based mine off of someone else's and did 0-10-20-40-60-80-100. Would it be possible to do 30-50-70-90 also?

    P.S. I've tested it in Ultimate and it works fine. MIUI wouldn't take it. And I'm working on some screenlock icons too. I've got one functioning, but its not as pretty as I'd like.

    EDIT: I was just looking through root explorer and I see everything now and am going to add more pngs for 5-15-30-50-70-90 later.

    I'M INSTALLING THIS NOW!!! Gotta say, I like this icon WAAAYYY better than the other one. The face is cool, but the actual spider just works better as a battery icon...

    That's great, I was just thinking today that someone should do a nice Spider-Man theme and this would be great for it. Nice work!!

    Looks pretty sweet. The additional percentages will only work on those roms that support it. Most Froyo roms do, but any of the new CM7 builds would not.

    Thanks so much I really appreciate the compliment
    Thanks. I'm going to make a blue one also as soon as I do the other percentages.
    Thanks for the info. I poked around in root explorer and found the other percentages. I have a couple of other ideas for some stuff, but time is rough when I'm gone from home 12 hours of the day and am married with 2 kids and enjoy my sleep.

    I need to figure out how to pull the pngs from the framework apk. I have some ideas for UD that would look uber sweet.

    Thanks. I yanked that off of the internet a while ago. I wish I could still draw good, but I need to practice some more. Why can't there be 36 hours in a day and I only am gone for 12 of them. :)

    If you are only working on pngs (like the battery) and not in .9.pngs, then the easiest thing is going to be to just make a copy of the framework you are working on and unzip the new one. Navigate to the res/drawable-hdpi (some roms have the added v4 part to this folder) and find the pngs in question. Edit to your liking, then use an application that can open the archive without messing up the signature (ie. Windows - 7zip or WinRAR, or Linux normally has it's own built in Archive Mananger). Open the appropriate folder and just drag and drop the new pngs in. Done. :)


    If you want to mess with .9.pngs at a later date, you'll want to look into apktool if you are more comfortable with command line stuff, or if you prefer GUI, then APK Manager. If you ever need any help, you can contact me on gTalk with my screen name.

    I'm not familiar with any of it at all. I like art and I like to customize what I have with what I have. Luckily I have this sweet phone that I can customize pretty much for free. I just figured out how to pull the drawable folder out of the apk. Now I'm going to try something else with metamorph and see if it works.

    I was messing around with trying to metamorph some wifi icons in the notification bar in UD, but it didn't work. So I tried Ninjamorphing them in and it worked. Muahahahahaha more stuff to come. I'll change this again cause the red writing that says wifi off is really hard to see.
