Arrow [UTIL] Ethermind's BATTERY DRIVER UPGRADE (1% increments) for XPERIA - CAB installer

Ethermind's BATTERY DRIVER UPGRADE
for the XPERIA X1



DESCRIPTION
  • This CAB will install Ethermind's upgraded BATTERY DRIVER for the XPERIA X1, allowing the phone to display the taskbar's battery status in up to 1% increments
  • Registry settings to enable % battery readings are also included in the CAB

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Install MS SDKcerts first (some custom ROMs as mine already come with SDKcerts pre-installed)
  2. Copy the CAB to device and click to install
  3. Install any %-enabled battery taskbar icons set of your choice; a custom taskbar ehancement / skin with % icons is required because the stock taskbar doesn't have % battery icons. See post 2 for some links

DESCRIPTION
  • All credits to Ethermind for the upgraded battery driver
  • I have tested it on STOCK ROMs and my custom SEX1 ROMs, please test and report how it behaves on other custom ROMs
  • In my experience, the driver's accuracy is slightly diminished in the upper range, but who cares ?? It works !!
  • DOCTOR'S WARNING: Displaying your battery status in 1%s is ADDICTIVE !!



If you like my works, just come back and say "thanks"
Enjoy

To "see" the % icon on the taskbar, a battery or full taskbar icons set (skin) with 100 battery icons is required (one icons for each %)

Here are some battery-only or full taskbar icons skins:

Will keep adding more links to many taskbars...

We didn't have Ethermind's upgraded driver when I created the X series, I wass tempted to make 10% icons only, but I decided to put 5% increments just in case

My expectations were exceeded by Ethermind's bright mind !!
Now I have to upgrade the X series filling all the missing icons
Lot's of work to do, so let's start !!
