Circular Battery Status for Android

Tired with your inaccurate battery meter on Android? or simply want to change? XDA member irkan presents Circular Battery Indicator, a small app based on the work of XDA member Fightspit, now available for non rooted devices.
The developer has modified an APK to make it usable for all Android devices, it was tested on a Desire but should work on any other non rooted device.

[APP] 17-OCT-2010 Circular battery Indicator with % (No root required)

Hi

UPDATE 17-OCT-2010
Fixed some small FC issue reported by a friend

UPDATE 16-OCT-2010
Alright a new version, with gradient color fill, less complicated code, and new icon
Desire
yesterday i wanted to get a battery status bar for my desire just like the picture below

found a thread here that explain how to get it

Super Circle Battery with % |Version A-I & Z (Custom)| Desire 2.2 ROM

Problem
However i found out that i am un-able to use it because the requirments for installing (what i have been told in the thread) is that your device has to be

1. Rooted
2. Have different ROM than the stock ROM

personally i find it very inconvenient to root & flash a new ROM just to get this battery circular percentage (thats all i want, I am pretty satisfied with the stock FROYO 2.2)

You can find more information in the application thread.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong.
