    useful mod, i think

    Hey men!

    Don't know is there still somebody except me using this ROM. But if so, I want to post my mod.

    It's including bug fix for sync icon and gps icon by bharat_goku (modified by me), green statusbar toggles w/o text and battery with %.
    I think this mod makes look much better and everything else is already good (thanks thebrainkafka)

    Sorry, i dont't know how to take a screenshot of systemui on gb, so here is the zip for cwm, take a look by yourself :)

    Update: got screenshot
