Here is the zip that fixes the visual signal fix on Cyanogen (and all AOSP roms for that matter). However, don't flash this if you're running an theme on top of froyo. It wont hurt your phone, but it wont help any A big thanks to Kyouko for the fix!
Having trouble applying this with the newest CM 6.0.0 Stable? Take a look here for some help to get it working. Thanks to dirkydirk23 for these tips!
Download metamorph (free) from the market
Download the zip attached to this post
Unzip the visual fix file onto your sd card. It doesn't matter where on your sd card, just somwhere where you can find it.
Open metamorph, and allow it to run checks. Sometimes on the first time you open it, it claims that something is wrong on your phone and will close. If this happens, just reopen the aplication again and allow it to run checks. It will work the second time.
Click on "apply existing theme" on metamorph.
Navigate to the extracted file of the visual fix on your sd card.
Click on it, and then select the .XML file
Allow metamorph to flash the .XML and rebbot your phone. When it boots up again, the signal bars will be fixed!
Post if you have any questions or would like to express thanks
hey, lemme ask you, is there an issue with it showing inaccurate bars? or is this giving us more visual bars as others have complained about only having 4?
also you spelled cyanogen wrong haha
This gives you more visual bars. On the default rom without this fix, the max amount of bars that will show up, even if you have amazing signal, is 3. With this fix, you get a more accurate reading; If you have great signal, you'll have the full 4 bars, not only 3. And if you have ok signal, you'll have 2 bars, not only one. And I fixed the spelling thanks
