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.

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...

Editorial: XDA Team Experiences & Why We Love the Site

For many power users, Android and XDA go hand in hand. The sheer amount of apps, themes, mods and ROMs in this site make it an enthusiast’s dream, and when I was offered a position to write for the XDA Portal 5 months ago, I was honored beyond explanation. Since then, I’ve learned more about XDA and the industry than I could have expected, and my views on Android, economies, communities and the world at large have been largely influenced...
