Hey, I'm looking for a Circle Battery Icon that can Replace the stock Battery Icon, is this possible without Root?

Here are some Pics:

The First is one I ran across in the App Store, to Give an Example of What I am Talking About. (I don't think this app is the the Icon, but you can see in the pick that this guys Original Icon has been Replaced, with a Circle Battery)

The Second is What I have Downloaded from the App store (Called: Battery Status Bar), which Gives me a Circle Battery Icon, but without Replacing the Original Icon.

Thanks

Nope, not possible without root. Actually you probably need more than just root as well. I don't think you can change anything like that without flashing something through CWM or some other recovery. That is the only way I have done it in the past.

Alright, thanks for the reply.

Anyone know of any digital battery icons that we can just add to the status bar?

You must have root to modify this. It requires you to mount /system/ to edit SystemUI.apk and framework-res.apk (and sometimes com.htc.resources.apk). Any apps you find for non rooted devices will only add to the notification bar, not replace the original icon.

I have "Battery Circle", from the market, and i think that it's what you're looking for. No root involved.
