Create Android Status Bar Icon Sets With The Rom Fumbler
Mention Android customization, and most are bound to think of status bar icons. While they only take up a very small part of the screen, even the most minor change of status bar icons can completely change the appearance of a device. XDA Senior Member OlliG realizes just how effective these status bar icon changes can be, so he developed a Windows based application that lets you create battery, WiFi, signal strength icon sets, and more.
The Rom Fumbler is a feature packed application that lets you change attributes such as icon, color, percentage, text, font, thresholds, and gradients. There’s also support for toggles, weather icons and lock screen lock rings. The end result is a flashable zip that applied through a custom recovery.
Initially developed for the Samsung Galaxy S II, the application should be compatible with many more devices. OlliG includes instructions in thread on how to check if your device is compatible with the icon mods. The ROM Fumbler is written in Java, so all you need is to have java Runtime installed on your pc.
Further information can be found in The ROM Fumbler thread.
