Choose from Over a Thousand Battery Styles with 3Minit Battery Mod

The battery style in stock Android looks pretty dull. It doesn’t offer the percentage remaining, customizable colors, and so on. Basically, it’s not something that most of us here on XDA are looking for. Luckily, you can change your default white or blue battery style to something more fancy with just few steps.

The battery style can look really nice and colorful. XDA Senior Member gharrington created a mod that gives you the ability to browse from over one thousand battery types. With a single click, the 3Minit Battery Mod will download and set the battery type onto the status bar. The application will download only those files that are needed by the currently selected battery type, so you don’t need to worry about the storage usage.

To change your current battery type, you need to install the application. After doing so, decomplie your SystemUI.apk and change a few lines of code in the XML files. You need to extract the contents of the archive provided by gharrington to the decompiled APK folders and re-compile it back. After pushing it to your ROM, you’ll get an option to select one of the battery types. Your phone must be rooted, otherwise you won’t be able to push the file back to /system partition.

If you want to have access to over a thousand of battery types, head over to the 3Minit thread to learn more.

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
