I never seen any guide how to add the cpu usage into notification panel to this is a guide how to do it!

Files need modification
Smali
\SystemUI\smali\com\android\systemui\statusbar\policy

XML's
status_bar_expanded_header.xml
id.xml
strings.xml
public.xml


1: Decompile the SystemUI.apk using apktool.
2: Now download the cpu_smali attachment and put the smalis inside the folder \SystemUI\smali\com\android\systemui\statusbar\policy
3: Open the file \SystemUI\res\values\id.xml and scroll down at the bottom and add these lines

Code:
<item type="id" name="cpu">false</item>
<item type="id" name="sys_id">false</item>

4: Open the file \SystemUI\res\values\strings.xml and scroll down at the bottom and add these lines

Code:
<string name="cpu_idle">idle</string>
<string name="cpu_text">CPU Usage</string>

5: Open the file \SystemUI\res\layout\status_bar_expanded_header.xml and look for the line

Code:
<com.android.systemui.statusbar.policy.ClockStock android:textAppearance="@style/TextAppearance.StatusBar.Expanded.Clock" android:textColor="@color/notification_header_clock_color" android:gravity="bottom" android:id="@id/clock" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_marginLeft="@dimen/notification_panel_header_clock_margin_left" android:singleLine="true" systemui:ampmSmall="true" />
<com.android.systemui.statusbar.policy.DateView android:textAppearance="@style/TextAppearance.StatusBar.Expanded.Date" android:textColor="@color/notification_header_date_color" android:gravity="bottom" android:id="@id/date" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:layout_marginLeft="@dimen/notification_panel_header_date_margin_left" android:layout_marginRight="@dimen/notification_panel_header_date_margin_right" android:layout_marginBottom="@dimen/notification_panel_header_date_margin_bottom" android:layout_toEndOf="@id/clock" />

Now we gonna comment out these codes just incase u want the date and clock back in the future so we need to do is replace with these codes

Code:
<!--
<com.android.systemui.statusbar.policy.ClockStock android:textAppearance="@style/TextAppearance.StatusBar.Expanded.Clock" android:textColor="@color/notification_header_clock_color" android:gravity="bottom" android:id="@id/clock" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_marginLeft="@dimen/notification_panel_header_clock_margin_left" android:singleLine="true" systemui:ampmSmall="true" />
<com.android.systemui.statusbar.policy.DateView android:textAppearance="@style/TextAppearance.StatusBar.Expanded.Date" android:textColor="@color/notification_header_date_color" android:gravity="bottom" android:id="@id/date" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:layout_marginLeft="@dimen/notification_panel_header_date_margin_left" android:layout_marginRight="@dimen/notification_panel_header_date_margin_right" android:layout_marginBottom="@dimen/notification_panel_header_date_margin_bottom" android:layout_toEndOf="@id/clock" />
-->

6: Now right under the lince we just comment out we will add these lines

Code:
<LinearLayout android:gravity="left" android:orientation="vertical" android:id="@id/cpu" android:background="#ff000000" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent">
<TextView android:textSize="15.0dip" android:textColor="#ffffffff" android:id="@id/sys_id" android:paddingLeft="11.0dip" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="@string/cpu_text" android:layout_marginLeft="@dimen/status_bar_expanded_notification_margin" />
<com.android.systemui.statusbar.policy.CpuUsageView android:textSize="12.0dip" android:textColor="#ffffffff" android:paddingLeft="23.0px" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" />
</LinearLayout>

7: Now save everything and lets compile the SystemUI.apk and sign it.

8: Take the SystemUI.apk we just compiled and signed and decompile it again using apktool

9: Now we open the file public.xml and look for the line <public type="string" name="cpu_idle" id=" now all we needed is the id inside the id=""

10: Now we open the file \SystemUI\smali\com\android\systemui\statusbar\policy\CpuUsageView$1.smali and search for # virtual methods few lines below you will see const v9, 0x7f0a01ad and all we need to do is change the 0x7f0a01ad to the one we found in public.xml

11: Save everything Compile & Sign and push it inside your system\priv-app.

12: Enjoy :D

@meawww, once again great job...worked as advertised. One question, is it possible to show the clock/date with the CPU usage? I was thinking about playing with the size (dpi) to see what would happen...perhaps even removing the 'CPU Usage' header just to show the core usages as well.

Also, I think your screen dpi is slightly different than mine as well. I lose the last core reading, see pic

Would that theme work with Sprint NAC 4.42? Some themes don't because they don't include Wifi Calling, Hotspot, Mobile Data, Torch, etc... Thanks in advance.

    5: Open the file \SystemUI\res\layout\status_bar_expanded_header.xml and look for the line

    Code:

    7: Now save everything and lets compile the SystemUI.apk and sign it.

    I never edited out my clock and date in the xml file. It just didn't show up (must be overlapping with the cpu usage). I'm wondering if I need to increase the size of my status bar header??
