is there a way to hide the android battery status or display the % on it? there are plenty of apps that show % but its kinda redundant to have both displaying on the task bar.

i am runing rooted stock rom. any ideas are apreciated, thanks

You can do both with CyanogenMod. Or you can just replace the images in framework-res.apk

How do you do this? Do you copy the original framework-res.apk to PC and then open and remove the battery pictures then move the modified framework-res.apk back to the device and install? I tried this but the apk wont install.

How do you install this file? I tried installing it from clockwork mod recovery, but it didn't take.

you cant install that file. you have to pull framework-res.apk from the /system/framework. then open it with 7zip and overwrite the exiting images with those. then push it back into the phone.

adb pull /system/framework/framework-res.apk

then after injecting new images

adb push framework-res.apk /system/framework/

Worked like a charm. Thanks!

Any idea where I can get my hands on red-themed 3g/location/clock/wifi/gps/alarm etc. notification icons?

I can't get the file to push. I am connected via USB with USB debugging on in charge only mode. At CMD prompt I can adb shell and su.

adb push framework-res.apk /system/framework/

gives error adb: not found

I have edited the file by removing some png and then saving it back to the sdk root and the sdk/tools folders.

If I get this to push do you have to then install the apk from the device?

-Install 7zip (just google it)
-Reboot phone into recovery.
-Connect USB cable
-Go into Partitions menu in recovery
-Mount /System
-Open your command prompt on your PC
-Change the directory to wherever your sdk/tools are located
-type the following command line: adb pull /system/framework/framework-res.apk

Now the file is in your sdk/tools folder
-Right click on framework-res.apk and open with 7zip
-Copy the files from the round battery zip folder to the corresponding folder with the 7zip archive. They will automatically overwrite
-Exit 7zip
-Back in the command prompt type the following command line: adb push framework-res.apk /system/framework/
-On your phone, unmount /system, then back out of the partitions menu and reboot your phone.

Should be all set!
