Angry [APP] SEX2 Battery Enhancer BASIC v0.1 (taskbar battery icon percenage)

BATTERY ENHANCER FOR THE XPERIA SE-X2

BASIC Version 0.1
[It will only change the battery icons set & activate the 1% readings]

- This is the taskbar battery icons set I am currently using
- It displays 1% increments charge readings on the taskbar battery icon
- Specifically made for the SE X2




INSTRUCTIONS:
1- Download the CAB installer and copy it to your phone
2- Open File Explorer and tap the CAB to install
3- Install into Device, NOT memory card
4- Turn OFF the phone for changes to apply
Enjoy the battery readings

NOTICES:
- Install Microsoft sofware developers kit certificates first (sdkcerts.cab)
- Should required, it can be removed at settings -> system -> remove programs


ACKNOWLEDGMENTS:
- To Ethermind for the improved battery driver
- All 100 icons are my own work and were originaly developed for the X1, for this version I modified the phone canvas DLL to fit the X2

many thanks gtrab. top notch as always. did you ever get around to porting across the F series icons to wm 6.5?? i had them on my X1, i certainly miss them on the x2! i think they all worked apart from the signal icon.

regarding the F series, it is a LOT of work: it took me more than 40 labour hours to edit thee DLLs with all the selected icons from forum members and some original icons
new icons especially require a lot of time

but I am getting bored of the icons and I may do it all again

REGARDING the interface shown in the shots, its SPB professional panel
It comes preinstalled !!!
Very customizable desktop-like idea of moving interactive items around

This works a treat and saves having to click all over the place to find out the battery level.

i think the only icon that doesnt work is the signal icon, the bars dont appear. all the other icons seem to work fine.. but i can appreciate its a time consuming job. they do look way better than the boring white standard icons.

regarding the F series,

even when all other icons seem to work, they were cooked over WM6.1 DLLs, so the original WM6.5 DLLs are overrided and replaced by the older OS ones

you may not notice it, but some system bugs may arise when running old OS DLLs (6.1) under a new OS (6.5), that's why I don't recommend using it under WM6.5 even when it does partially work

gtrab making a taskbar again? thought i'd never see the day...

sounds great!!! but how about X-series? i already wanted to do it myself, but for 6.5.x there are some icons missing. and so far i've been too lazy to make them... (as that includes reverse-engeneering)

pretty-please?
