This is a beautiful battery widget, can you link me to it?

Here you are, someone answered this before...

No real "Guide" needed, download this font. http://img.dafont.com/dl/?f=barcode_font

unzip it to any directory on your SDcard (I used the MinimalisticTextPreferences directory that the program uses to store custom widgets you've made)

Long press screen, select "Widget">Minimalistic Text 4x2 (hor) or whatever size you want.

in Minimalistic Text options, to all the way down to Global Settings, scroll to "Font Folder" and select the directory on your SDCard that has the barcode font. press back to go back to the widget setup screen, in the 3 text fields at the top select "Font Family" and you should see Barcode font in the option. once you have it selected for all 3 text fields just make up what you want it to do, clock, battery, date, etc.

    One of the greatest strength of Android is user customization. This is what makes our favorite OS unique. No two homescreen are alike. Widgets, wallpapers, and icons, almost everything you see can be replaced, themed and modified. However, the number of themes and widget are many that it becomes daunting and a little bit intimidating. So without further ado, this thread will help you maximize your ability to theme and create your very own take on the Android experience. Enjoy!

    Ever wonder how to make your Android home screen look like this?

    This thread is dedicated to show you how widgets can help create a look to your homescreen. Keep in mind that some might not be free and some have been modded (transparency, color changes etc.) to look different from the original.

    ICONS

    There are many icons lying around the internet. These are my favorite as they give the phone a minimalist look like so:

    Launcher

    Apparently this clock is very appreciated, unfortunately it's no longer in the market and after a few requests here on xda, I'll just post it here, so that everybody is free to download this clock
