Add Battery Mod and Notification Toggles to Your Droid RAZR ROM
This year, we’ve been on a kick to help teach users how to develop on various platforms. Whether it’s something like compiling ROMs from source or creating icon sets, there are threads scattered across XDA that help teach those who are interested how to do various things. Motorola Droid RAZR users can now learn how to port battery mods and notification toggles to their favorite ROM.
The guide originally started out as a simple battery mod with custom notification toggles. However, XDA Senior Member alteredlikeness, who was also a part of the Atrix 2 ICS leak disaster, eventually added a guide on how to port the battery mod and custom toggles to any ROM. Of course, it can be used for any battery mod and custom notification toggle setup.
It is a very long method and takes quite a bit of time for those not familiar with the tools involved. In short, users will be decompiling the systemui.apk and the services.jar, applying the new battery mod and toggle set, recompiling and applying them to whatever ROM they so desire. Anyone attempting to do this will need APKTool, 7zip, Notepad++, and WinMerge at least.

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery. Now, you can't magically expand its size but no matter how much its capacity is, you should make sure it's not draining faster than it should be. Your phone's processor runs at different frequencies when you're using the device. The CPU...
