Change Your Battery Stats Colors without a Smali Mod

You may recall that earlier this year, we covered a simple Smai modification by XDA Recognized Themer and Contributor iamareebjamal that allowed users to change their battery stats color with a simple Smali modification. Such a modification isn’t exactly groundbreaking, as it just changes the way a certain (though often used) Settings page looks. However, as Google and OEMs place an increasing emphasis on UI styling, customizing a page’s look is more valuable than ever.

Let’s say that you wanted to go ahead and apply the modification listed above. Unfortunately, the guide only showed users how to do this through a Smali modification. While the modification itself isn’t anything difficult to perform, you still need to go through several steps before it can be applied. You have to pull your Settings.APK, decompile it, search for a particular location, and edit it to your liking. Then once that’s done, you have to push it back to your device, reboot, and hope that you like the color. If you’re not happy with the result, you have to repeat the whole, tedious process.

Luckily for those who don’t want to spend all day looking for the perfect color to match their particular mood, iamareebjamal went ahead and turned this into an Xposed Framework module that does the exact same thing–but with much greater convenience. The mod can be applied like any other Xposed module, and once enabled, you simply pick your color from the color wheel in the module itself. You can even set a particular transparency and compare the old and new colors directly.

If you have wanted to modify your Battery Stats color, head over to the X-Battery Stats module thread to give this a shot.
