    Looks good. Is it 10% increments or 20%? Why aren't you sharing it? Post a link dude.

    Well, I didnt know how to install it without using MM, so I swapped out the images from Green Round Battery, with mine, and installed using MM that way. It worked. I can supply in images in a zip file, but I dont want to distribute using the Green Round Battery method, since its not mine.

    The images are 0, 10, 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100.

    If someone wants to help me make or test some WIDER battery icons, let me know!

    I know, compared to the rest of the images on the Droid, my battery icon looks "HD". Its very crisp, and doesnt have the softer edges that almost every other image on the phone has. I was going to try to make a theme "HD" style. No blurred edges, and minimal shadows. Would look awsome, but I dont have the time to work on it a whole lot. lol

    Images, and download posted in first post, to keep it simple to find.

    Thanks for the test MAD. I am about to update to 1.1, so I will do all my further dev and tests on that build. Which should be the same anyway. ESE81 base.

    I tried 2 ways of installing

    I tried starting clean and putting all my edited apps in and i had an issue with my sweeter home 2. I then restored my v1.0, and tried again only this time I kept all data and basically only upgraded. Should have done it that way the first time. All is working and it seems to be rock solid right now.

    so I suggest just to be safe make a backup but I would keep all data so your apps will all still be setup for you.


    I did have to repush a few of my apps that I had edited but was very quick and easy I pushed them all [the ones I noticed were missing] set permissions on them all then rebooted and was good

    Anyone else find it funny that the icon lists battey at 100% but the accurate widget below lists battery level at 89%?

    LOL

    Now, when using MetaMorph 1.9.8.5. It keeps failing saying that the control file is missing or invalid. Same file that MAD made for me. I just upgraded to BB v1.1. There are other issues as well, but not for this post.
    Any ideas how to fix them?
