Change the Alarm Icon in the Status Bar with Xposed

It’s hard to find a more hated object than your alarm clock. They wake us up nearly every day, help us to get up on time for school or work, and basically keep our lives on tracks. However, we still don’t like them. That said, we need to deal with them. But despite their annoyances, we can at least make them look pretty.

Stock Android isn’t always the most beautiful OS. Sometimes, icons and other UI elements look like they’re taken directly from Android 1.5–and that’s somewhat of a true statement. One of these small elements that can be easily replaced and make the OS look a bit prettier is the alarm icon available on status bar.

XDA Recognized Developer GermainZ created a small Xposed module that replaces the default icon with Set’s alarm icon. Set’s alarm clock looks better and fits more into the Holo UI design. It’s a small modification, but a perfect looking ROM is made of such small elements that can be replaced with themes or Xposed modules.

To use this module, you need to root your phone and install Xposed Framework by XDA Senior Recognized Developer rovo89 and XDA Recognized Contributor Tungstwenty. After downloading and installing the module, you need to enable it in the Xposed Installer and reboot your device. After powering up your device, everything should be set.

If you don’t want to remain in the stone age in terms of layout, head over to the DynamicAlarmicon’s thread and give this module a try.
