This mod was originally created for the HTC Desire, but thanks to a lot of people's hard work and collaboration, we now have a clockwork-compatible version for our Vibrant. Besides modifying the original battery images, this mod required major modification to several XML files, which now allows us to specify a specific image for EACH percentage. In essence, instead of having 5 battery icons (0%, 20%, 40%, etc), we now have over 100, including the charging and charged images. The end result: our battery meter is now extremely accurate, down to the exact percentage, and you can modify the battery images to suit your own visual tastes. Feel free to use and modify the below zip files as you please, but please give credit where it is due.

Metamorphs posted do not include the necessary XMLs to be used on a build that doesn't already have the battery mod. Do NOT use them if you have a "stock" battery without percentages.

WARNING: ALWAYS make a nandroid backup prior to installing any modification, including this one. You are making the decision to install this on your own, and I am not responsible for anything nuclear that may happen to your device.

Install Instructions (for flashable versions):
  1. Copy your preferred version of the battery mod to the root of your Internal SD (Clockwork cannot see the External SD).
  2. Reboot into Clockwork Recovery
  3. Flash your chosen update.zip
  4. Reboot and Enjoy!

Install Instructions (for MetaMorph versions):
  1. Download MetaMorph or MetaMorph Pro from the Market
  2. Use it to apply the Morph
  3. Boot into Recovery and clear Dalvik-Cache
  4. Enjoy!

Here is the working one I put together just for Vibrant!! Thanks to Fightspit for his original files, also thanks to the OP zimphishmonger for getting me interested in this.. No errors on my end! Enjoy! My phone is completely stock except for root if that helps anyone.

BTW after you clear the cache the phone may take longer to reboot.

To Install:
Boot into clockwork recovery and clear the cache, then flash file from sd. After that clear the cache once again, then reboot.

Also I have included an undo which installs the same way.

Files are now in the OP

As always make a nandroid backup before doing this and I am not responsible for damage to your phone.

I flashed this but got stuck at galaxy screen on reboot and yes I've done everything correctly. Any suggestions? I had to do a nandroid restore to get back up and running.

Huge thanks to the3dman13 for getting this working! Give this man some props.

Mind letting me know what you did to get it working. I tried decompiling the apk, add the files (also decompiled), then recompile and sign the apk.

Im gonna try and put together a metamorph of this

I feel like an idiot, but I'm guessing "clear the cache" is the dalvik? I know now that it's not the cache partition. Nandroid to the rescue!
