Default [Guide] Add OGBatteryMod to your ROM

I found this guide here and this is what I did differently from it to make this work for us. You can use the linked file to click an app to change the icon or you can add it into settings in your rom. For those that don't know what this does this probably isn't the thread for you. Just wait until you see it popping up in the roms you use. This should work universally for ND8 builds.

Now instead of following all of his steps and not finding what you're searching for I will simplify this some to make it quicker. You will want to search for this and replace it throughout the smali file in your decompiled systemui.apk (\SystemUI\smali\com\android\systemui\statusbar\ph one\PhoneStatusBar.smali)

Find all instances of
Select Code
and replace with

Select Code
Then open (\SystemUI\res\layout\status_bar.xml) and find [This may already be changed if you used tdunham's 1% battery mod]
Select Code
< android:id="@id/battery" android:layout_width="12.0dip" android:layout_height="18.0dip" android:layout_marginBottom="0.33000004dip" android:layout_marginStart="5.0dip" />
and replace it with
Select Code
<ImageView android:gravity="center" android:id="@id/battery" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_marginBottom="0.0dip" android:layout_marginStart="2.0dip" />
Now most importantly you need to add these smali files to your systemui so they're in (systemui/smali/com/ghareeb/BatteryMod)

Then add the OGBatterymod.apk of your choice to system/app. I didn't provide one in this guide sorry but maybe I will upload one eventually. You can easily look for one to add, all the old ones should work.

To add it to secsettings under display

Decompile secsettings.apk and open (\SecSettings\res\xml\display_settings.xml)

Select Code
<PreferenceScreen android:title="@string/notification_panel_title" android:key="notification_panel_edit" android:fragment="" />
Add this under that line
Select Code
<PreferenceScreen android:title="@string/battery_mod" android:summary="@string/battery_mod_desc">
        <intent android:targetPackage="com.ghareeb.battery" android:action="android.intent.action.MAIN" android:targetClass="com.ghareeb.battery.Settings" />
Now open (\SecSettings\res\values\string.xml) and add this
Select Code
<string name="battery_mod">OGBattery Mod</string>
<string name="battery_mod_desc">Change battery icon and charging animation.</string>
For those who don't want to add this to settings for some reason you can find one with the icon so you can just open the app here:

Thanks to @OsamaGhareeb and @meawww also @axel06 for his that I linked with the icon instead of having to have it in settings if anyone would like to do it this way.
