Status Bar Makeover for Atrix and Galaxy Nexus on CM9

One of the greatest attributes of cross-platform ROMs such as CyanogenMod is that modifications can be used on most phones that run the release. Things like theme chooser and CyanogenMod Settings change very little, if at all, regardless of target device. The same holds true for many other CyanogenMod modifications as well.

XDA Senior Member rickriego has posted a method for CyanogenMod 9 users toting the Motorola Atrix 4G that will not only place the clock in the middle of the status bar, but bring several other features—a couple of which are fully configurable—to the CM9 experience.

According to XDA Forum Member rob43, who originally released the mod for CM9 on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the features include:

– Centered clock
– Modified notifications layout
– Tab for quick toggles (fully configurable from CM9 settings)
– Brightness control (make sure you toggle off auto brightness for this to work)
– Transparent statusbar (might be removed next version if this affects performance)

This modification brings a little pizzazz to an otherwise ordinary Android notification bar. Additionally, since it is a modification for a CyanogenMod 9 ROM, there’s a good chance that this modification can be used on other devices with CM9. While there is no list of these devices, anyone who’s reading this who has a CM9-powered device could give it a try. Of course, make a backup before you do, just in case something goes wrong.

For anyone wanting to check out the mod, you can find some additional info in the Atrix thread and the full mod details and download links in the Galaxy Nexus thread. It should be noted that Atrix users will have to extract the apk from the .zip file to use it, and likely anyone not running a Galaxy Nexus will have to as well.

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
