The stock battery on the Nexus 7 only changes icons at 0%, 15%, 28%, 43%, 57%, 71%, 85% & 100% charge so I've modified it so that there are now icons for every 1% and they're also animated when the device is charging.

To do this, I made two sets of Base VRThemes which modify SystemUI.apk:

The first set are Base Statusbar Battery VRThemes which change just the statusbar battery icons and contain a modified res\drawable\stat_sys_battery.xml, a modified res\drawable\stat_sys_battery_charge.xml, the 202 1% statusbar battery icons in res\drawable-hdpi & larger versions of thes icons in res\drawable-sw720dp-hdpi for tablet mode users and a modified resources.arsc

The second set are Base Statusbar Battery & Pulldown Battery Toggle VRThemes which change the statusbar battery icons and the pulldown battery toggle battery icons. These contain a modified res\drawable\stat_sys_battery.xml, a modified res\drawable\stat_sys_battery_charge.xml, a modified res\drawable\qs_sys_battery.xml, a modified res\drawable\qs_sys_battery_charging.xml, the 202 1% statusbar battery icons & the 202 1% pulldown battery toggle battery icons in res\drawable-hdpi and a modified resources.arsc

The new resources.arsc is needed because it contains the modified res\values\public.xml file with the info about the battery pngs. Unfortunately, adding this file makes the base VRTheme rom specific.

If a Base Statusbar Battery VRTheme has been flashed, Battery Universal VRThemes can be flashed over the top to change just the statusbar battery icons.

If a Base Statusbar Battery & Pulldown Battery Toggle VRTheme has been flashed, Pulldown Battery Universal VRThemes can be flashed over the top to change just the pulldown battery toggle battery icons and Battery Universal VRThemes can be flashed over the top to change just the statusbar battery icons.

These VRThemes have all been tested using both TWRP & CWM recovery and multiple Universal VRTheme flashing is supported.

Hello,
Can you modify this so that it also puts the image files in the folder res\drawable-sw720dp-hdpi so that it works when in tablet mode.
Thanks,

Hey guys, Sorry if posting in the wrong thread. Is there a way to completely replace the charging animation with system boot? I am going to be using my N7 tablet as a carputer and want it to autoboot up when charger is plugged in.

It doesn't really need a tutorial as there's no decompiling/compiling involved when modifying the universal VRTheme zips.

All you need to do is download any Universal VRTheme and replace the 101 battery icons (stat_sys_battery_0.png - stat_sys_battery_100.png) and 101 battery charging icons (stat_sys_battery_charge_anim0.png - stat_sys_battery_charge_anim100.png) in res\drawable-hdpi & res\drawable-sw720dp-hdpi with the ones you want to use.

Make sure they're about the same size as the current ones and simply drop them directly into the zip file using 7-Zip.

Once you've done this, follow the installation instructions but flash your new universal zip after the base zip.

Well basically its like this battery mod for S3 but with blue instead of green.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1768962

Scroll down and look for Alternative Small Battery with percentage credits to raubkatze course :)

By the way its for 4.2 version

OK, I've downloaded the pngs, re-sized them, re-coloured them and added the universal flashable vrtheme to the first post.

You can't use it on 4.2 yet though as I haven't made a base theme - I still can't decompile/compile it's SystemUI.apk.

As soon as I can, I will.

Update

Now that I've successfully managed to decompile/compile SystemUI.apk from android 4.2 JOP40C,
I've added a Stock 4.2 JOP40C HyDrOG3N Base Battery VRTheme to the first post

Note: Before flashing any Battery Universal VRTheme over the Stock 4.2 JOP40C HyDrOG3N Base Battery VRTheme,
you should delete the drawable-sw720dp-hdpi folder from the Battery Universal VRTheme zip first.

(vrtheme/system/app/SystemUI.apk/res/drawable-sw720dp-hdpi)
