The charging phase is animated, with the centre alternating between the plug and the percentage figure.
Everything else stays as originally designed by wbaw (for GSF/MCSF) or as in the Androidian and System CM7 themes.
Nothing clever here, I just used the UOT Kitchen, but thought I would post the results to save anyone else the trouble of making their own (especially as UOT kitchen is often busy or overloaded with requests). If you want to adjust anything then the UOT Kitchen is open for anyone, and to get you started you could use my settings - just extract /settings/settings.uot from any of the zips in this thread and upload it to the kitchen (also see the FAQ, below).
Please do not attempt to install a GSF/MCSF mod on CM7, or vice versa. If you do, the ROM will almost certainly not boot and you will have to reflash the ROM - not the end of the world as there is a simple solution, but a waste of time nevertheless - see FAQ, below.
The versions in this and the next few posts are working on GSF B17-B19 and B21-B23. See post #7, for versions compatible with GSF B20 and MCSF v1. See posts #22-25 for versions for GSF B24-B27. Go to post #26 onwards for versions for CM7.1.0 (note that the system theme mods in posts #32-35 will not work on the latest nightly builds on CM7.1.0, so please only use the Androidian theme mods in post #26 onwards for the nightlies).

Install with ClockworkMod as usual.
To avoid problems, or if you have experienced problems and want a solution:
First of all, this thread contains separate mods for CM7, GSF and MCSF, please do not make the mistake of installing the wrong one on your ROM.
Secondly, to be safe, always do a Nandroid backup in ClockworkMod before installing any mod/theme. If you forget it isn't all that difficult to restore things to how they were (see FAQ, below), but it is a waste of time, rather than having the safety net of restoring the Nandroid backup.
Q1. After installing the mod my phone does not boot or continually shows the boot animation.
A1. You have probably installed the wrong mod/theme for your ROM (e.g. the GSF version on CM7). Don't panic it is easily fixed without losing any data. Boot into recovery and reflash the original ROM zip. Do not wipe any settings otherwise you will lose your configuration, SMSs, call logs, etc. when you get back into your ROM.
A1a. If you have downloaded and installed the correct mod for your ROM it may have been corrupted when you downloaded it or copied it to your phone - check the MD5 sum. Reinstall the original ROM zip to revert (see A1, above).
Q2. After installing I have lost some icons or features of my ROM.
A2. This is probably because you have installed the circle battery mod over another theme you have previously installed. In general, theme mods are incompatible with one another. Reinstall the original ROM zip (see A1, above) then install whichever theme mod you prefer out of the two.
A2a. Your ROM may be a derived one from the original release modified by another developer which has altered the framework or SystemUI. In which case you can restore the developer's features by reflashing their ROM (see A1, above).
A2b. ADVANCED: You can make a custom hybrid theme yourself with the features of the ROM/theme plus the circle battery mod: take framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk from the ROM/theme and upload them to UOT kitchen under System files in the File upload tab. Extract settings.uot from your favourite circle mod zip file from this thread and also upload it under Kitchen's settings (or just chose your own battery icon from the many options in the UOT kitchen). Submit it, wait an hour or so and you will have your own custom theme mod with all the goodies from the ROM/theme of your choice plus the circle battery icon.
Q3: I have a different release of <xyz> ROM can I install this theme?
A3: It is only safe to do so if the framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk has not changed. If you are not sure and you are brave you can take a punt, but refer to A1, above for instructions on how to recover if things go wrong.
Q4: I have a different ROM, is there a circle battery mod for it?
A4: See A2b, above.
Q5: Can you change the colours?
A5: See A2b, above, and play with the options in UOT kitchen.
Q6: My phone doesn't go into deep sleep or the notification bar is flaky after installing this mod.
A6: The theme mod should not affect CPU or sleep settings - please make sure you haven't made changes to the CPU governor settings that may be the real cause of the problem.
