Swap Battery Icons Easily with OG Battery Mod

One thing we find ourselves glancing at nearly every time we unlock our device is the battery icon. This is probably one of the reasons why it’s such a commonly modified element of the user interface. There is certainly no shortage of custom battery icons out there, and many custom ROMs come with several already included for you to select from. It’s also one of the easiest modifications there is for any aspiring themer to practice their skills on.

For those looking for a quick and easy way to choose from a variety of ready made custom battery icons, The OG Battery Mod by XDA Forum Member OsamaGhareeb might just be the answer. The tool is a windows executable that when run, will patch your device’s SystemUI.apk and Settings.apk files to allow you to choose between 15 preset custom battery icons without so much as  a reboot. Simply connect your device via USB, follow the instructions, and off you go.

Written mainly for Samsung devices running Android 4.0 and upward, there is also some support for Motorola devices. The developer has however chosen to make the source code for this nifty little modification available, so adding support for other devices will be much easier if anyone were inclined to do so.

Head on over to the original thread for more information if you feel the need to jazz up your status bar a little.

OnePlus 2 Bares All in New Tear Down Gallery

Last year, the launch of the OnePlus One, dubbed 'the flagship killer', visibly shook the foundations of the mobile OEM sphere, with OnePlus delivering high-end flagships specs at a very affordable price. The initial launch phase was met with mixed feelings after a few controversial marketing tactics, but they eventually gave way to strong sales figures.   Earlier this week, OnePlus went on to unveil the successor to the One, and while the device continues to offer top-of-the-line specs at...

Focus – An Attractive But Raw Gallery Replacement

Focus is an attractive new app built by XDA members Liam Spradlin and Francisco Franco, the latter being well-known in the forums for his kernels.
