Default [SKN] FInixNOver VGA Battery/Network Icons [UPDATED - 17/10/2008]

Hi everyone!

I got myself a nice shining Diamond last week, and I wasn't very pleased with the battery icon and the G, H, E and 3G icons in the taskbar. That allied with the fact that i can't get the percentage value for the battery in the power settings, lead me to create something that would look a bit better, and give me more accuracy about the battery.

So here it is! My first contribution to the Diamond community (it may also apply to Raphael).


If your device is running an official ROM you'll will also have to install the for this to work (it's possible that some cooked ROMs may need this as well).



I wasn't able to create a working cab to provide an automated installation(since it's replacing a system file, the cab may need a setup.dll file to make it fully work).
However I'm providing a manual installation. It's a bit more work but I think it's worth it.

Download FInix_VGA_Battery_and_Network_Icons_DLL_and_REG.zi p.
Inside you'll find the phcanOverbmp.dll, which you have to copy to Windows folder in your device (using a file explorer like Total Commander or Resco explorer), and FInix VGA Battery and Network Icons.reg which you have to import with a registry editor in your device (if you don't have one, you can use Dotfred taskmanager with registry editor included).
After this, restart your device to apply the changes.
I'm sorry for all the trouble.

On further note, all Chefs are welcome to cook it into your ROMs if you find it usefull. (Credits will be appreciated )

[EDIT 3]
Added cab installation thanks to mclein

[EDIT 4]
Added battery icons only dll for those of you that don't like the network icons.
I've uploaded a cab and a zip version, just in case the cab doesn't work.

Someone asked about making the font bigger. Not a possibility using that font, because i only have a 32 pixel width to work on. And I really like it how it is.

How to make your own set of Battery Icons:

You'd need some programs, and of course, the dll.
That's it!


After removing my customized dll, to fully uninstall and have the old battery icon back you just have to edit the following reg entry:
"BatteryIconLevels"=dword:65 (hexadecimal) or 101 (decimal) -> dword:15 (hexadecimal) or 21 (decimal)
