This thread was originally posted over on the Galaxy Nexus forums (linked in my sig), which is the device I have. A user (Kick-Ass Joe) tried the theme on his Nexus 4 and said it works perfectly fine, and I don't see any reason it wouldn't, as long as you're running Paranoid Android 3.0 (should work with other 4.2.x PA versions too). Once we found that it worked on his phone, he suggested you guys here might be interested. I don't have a Nexus 4 to test on, however, so please only test new versions if you're confident you can recover from any issues you may encounter. Please also let me know if you have any issues.

OK, many of you are like me and have been looking for 1% battery increments on the amazing Paranoid Android ROM. The devs have been working so hard on making the rest of the ROM great for us that they just haven't had a chance to add battery %. So I've made a theme for just that purpose! I know you can install one of thousands of themes out there that add battery %, but I have always been partial to the stock look of ICS and JB, so my theme will only add battery percent icons, nothing more. It applies via the built-in theme manager, so no flashing required! Just download the theme you want from the attachments below and install/apply like always. Also, please swing by this thread and hit the thanks button on the OP, ATTACK. It's his icon pack that has made most of these (maybe all) possible, given my rather limited photoshop skills. He OK'd the use of the icons, but I'd like to give him "something" back.

Thanks!

I've got 14 themes now.

1. Stock with white percentages overlaid. DOWNLOAD



2. Circle Battery. DOWNLOAD



3. Thin style with white percentages to the left. DOWNLOAD



4. Thin style with ICS blue percentages to the left. Called CM Thin. DOWNLOAD



5. Numbers only. DOWNLOAD



6. Segmented Circle. DOWNLOAD



7. Roboto font numbers only. No charging animation, just static green text while charging. DOWNLOAD



8. Off-Center. DOWNLOAD



9. ICS Circle battery. DOWNLOAD



10. Dotted circle. DOWNLOAD



11. Honeycomb style. DOWNLOAD



12. Digital theme DOWNLOAD



13. SGS 3 Style icons. DOWNLOAD



14. Percent Numbers, better than Roboto. DOWNLOAD



Each theme of icons can be installed side by side on the same phone. This way, if you want to change between different icons, you have the ability to do just that, without uninstalling or reinstalling anything.

Disclaimers/Warnings:
*This is my first attempt at theming, but it has been running perfectly on my own Paranoid GNex for several days now, and another member (ben.nesheim) was kind enough to test as well. He has had no problems since applying the first theme Saturday night. At this point there are quite a few users with no issues. However, if for some reason you run into problems (themes won't apply, phone dies, ROM borked, dragons flying out of the charging port, etc... ), I am not responsible. I will help you however I can, though. I honestly can't think of anything this theme could do to your phone anyway, but you never know.

*MAKE A BACKUP! I know that sounds silly for a theme, but since this is my first try, I suggest you have a backup just in case. Again, there are two phones so far that have had no problems, but that doesn't mean they'll all work perfectly. So far I've had a good bit of downloads and comments in the Galaxy Nexus thread, and I think it's safe to say its stable. Still, make a backup just in case, especially since this is on a Nexus 4, which I can't test on....

*The theme works in all standard UI modes, (phone, phablet, various tablet) but I can't test every configuration out there. If you have issues let me know and I'll see if I can fix it.

*You will most likely get the "This theme is missing assets for your screen size" message, but hit apply anyway. Almost every theme I've ever seen throws this message, but it doesn't affect anything in these themes.

*It should work on each version of PA that comes out, but there is a chance something will change to break it. I'm really not sure. I'll test when each version comes out, until there's no more demand for this theme.

Thanks for looking, and if anybody has any issues or requests, feel free to let me know!! Enjoy!

Sweet
Been waiting for this. Works well, except when PA changes status bar colours, the numbers in the stock icon disappear. The numbers or thin battery works best if you have per app colours set.

However the battery meter fills up to full in the set colour as you can see in attachement. Anyway, not huge issues, thanks for this.

I hadn't noticed that before, I guess because I don't use the per-app colors. I will try and figure out why the numbers disappear, because to me that is unacceptable. Since none of the others do it, it must have to do with those particular icons.

Thanks for letting me know!!

I'm glad you like it! I think the color issue is only with icons like the stock and thin batteries, because they both have multiple colors and they all get changed to the PA color, making it unreadable. I'm still trying to figure out what I can do to fix it.

I'm glad its working now. I haven't seen anybody else have an issue, but it could still happen. If anybody else has that problem, please let me know. Thanks!
