Title says it all. I hate the battery bar. I wish I knew how to do it myself.

I contacted the guy who posted this theme http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...hlight=ics+zip the ics.zip
I wouldn't mind trying to port it over myself, I've actually been trying to figure out how the last few hours.. but I would love that theme. Mainly for the battery icon. But also for a little more ICS look.

Working on a stock-looking HTC Style battery with percentage right now. Was thinking this today when I looked at my phone and said to myself.. "I wonder where my battery is really at?"

Getting ready to install it now. Once I finish testing, if all goes well, I'll post it in a few minutes.

I was gonna contact the guy who made the caprombeta rom, he had battery % showing in his.. since he had his rom out so quick I imagine he must have had a quick and dirty method he could share.
I've seen a lot of people griping about the lack of an ICS look so I was considering using this thread that has a tool to port themes with the ICS.zip attached to that link I posted earlier.. it is supposed to put it into any rom(and looking at the batch file it doesn't need a whole rom, just what needs to be flashed). I would probably have it done already but I'm on my mac, and too lazy to sit at the desktop

Well here's mine. Nothing changed over stock theme except I added the percentage to the battery icon.

Also has smooth charging animations instead of the standard choppy ones and shows the current percentage between animation cycles while charging.

Used the UOT Kitchen to make it but replaced the battery images with my own. Hope you guys like it.

Just install in recovery.

You da man! Thank you, was so sick of guessing what % I had left after only running it 24 hours. Works great.

I was playing with UOT earlier, how did you use your own icons? I was looking for that for a WHILE..

Attached. Just extract it from the rar. When you upload a pic as an attachment, it compresses it to a different resolution.

It's not a feature directly implemented into the UOT Kitchen.

After the kitchen is done and you download your zip, extract the framework-res.apk from the zip.

Extract the "res" folder from the framework-res.apk and look for the directory "drawable-hdpi". In there you will find 206 images related to the battery. I replaced them all with images that matched HTC's stock battery but including percentage.

After you replace all the images to look how you want, just replace the res folder inside framework-res.apk and replace the one in the zip.
