Default [Q] Battery Percentage and Toggles. How to?

Hi guys,

I am looking for an easy way to get a battery percentage indicator in the status bar on my Arc S, which is implemented in the system. Also a row of toggles for wifi, gps, etc. Currently, I have two different apps doing that ob but I want it to be in the system itself.

Details about my device:
Model number: LT18i
Android 4.0.3
Build number: 4.1.A.0.562

My devices is rooted but (I think) the bootloader is closed.

Is there an easy way to get these things? I dont have much knowledge about these kind of things.

Thank you

Have you taken a look at the Themes and Apps sub-forum? There are mods which allow you to do this.

But here's some sound advice, before changing anything, make sure you take a backup. And it goes without saying, follow the instructions clearly to avoid mishaps.

Quick Panel will give you the toggles in the notification bar.

The battery percentage thing requires replacing your systemui.apk. If you do it incorrectly, your status bar will disappear.

This one matches your system version:

1. Install File Manager or Root Explorer from the Android Market and make sure the settings configured to root and write.

2. Go into systems/app, copy the systemui.apk for backup to your sd card.

4. Now copy the systemui.apk you like to install to the systems folder then change the permission to r-w-r-r.

5. Now move it to the systems/app folder by deleting or overriding the currently systemui.apk installed.

6. Now reboot and hopefully you should have the statusbar toggle.

Thanks a lot mate. It worked very well.

One more question: Is there an app/mod similar to Voodoo which I used on my Samsung Galaxy S to increase the system Sound/bass?

Thanks a lot!
