The previous versions do appear to work on B24-B26 even though the framework had changed. But to be 100% sure it is better to use the versions in this and the following 3 posts which have been built with the current framework.

CM7 has an inbuilt battery percentage feature (settings->CyanogenMod settings->Interface->Status bar tweaks->Battery percentage) but I prefer these circle battery icons.

I haven't had time to explore the themes listed in the excellent thread here to see whether there is something suitable there (there didn't seem to be at first glance), so I've simply used UOT kitchen and added the circle battery icons on top of the Androidian theme distributed with CM7.

Unfortunately installation with Theme Chooser raises an error ("Sorry, this theme is missing assets for your device's screen size") which I haven't found a way around, yet, but just ignoring the error message (press "Apply anyway") works fine for me.

Install with ClockworkMod as usual (a Nandroid backup would be prudent), reboot and then start Theme Chooser and select the newly installed UOT kitchen theme to get circles around your battery percentage - everything else is as in the Androidian theme.

(alternative fat circles and green numbers in the following posts)

See posts #32-35 for versions compatible with the standard system CM7 theme.

Any chance making these with the default 'system' colour scheme? I am not sold on green for the bounce effect / buttons pressed background.

OK, I'm working on it. As soon as the UOT kitchen has some spare slots I'll have a go (it is very busy these days!).

The system "theme" in CM7 is not packaged as a self-contained apk file, which would be needed to cook a derived theme compatible with Theme Chooser. However, I have baked the following using the same method as for non-CM7 ROMs (by modifying SystemUI and framework-res). This works, but a significant side effect is that the circle battery is then fixed as the system battery icon. This means that any other theme you may apply in Theme Chooser will also have the circle battery icon, unless the theme explicitly overrides it with its own battery icons. For example, Cyanbread will display this green battery icon and it looks a bit odd when everything else is cyan. The original battery icon can be restored easily, though, just by reflashing the CM7 ROM.

If you are OK with the above then you can install the zip below. Use ClockworkMod as usual, reboot and the circle battery will be there - no need to play with Theme Chooser.

Note: because this mod replaces some system files it should only be applied to CM7.1.0 stable. I haven't checked all later nightlies, but, as posted later in this thread, framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk have changed in n241, so please do not assume these will work on later nightly builds - however the Androidian mods, in the posts above, should work in all version of CM7.

Hi - I replied in the CM7 thread here. The issue is that the theme mod was only built for CM 7.1.0 stable or similar ROMs that have not changed the framework or system UI. sej's ROM had modified those settings to get the soft buttons working, and by applying the mod you have overwritten his original files. The solution is to bake your own custom theme (pasting from my reply in the other thread):

The solution is to make your own in UOT kitchen. Extract framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk from sej's ROM and upload them to UOT kitchen under System files in the File upload tab. Extract settings.uot from your favourite circle mod and also upload it under Kitchen's settings. Submit it, wait an hour or so and you will have your own custom theme mod with all the goodies from sej + the circle battery icon.

I just installed this mod on my blade, CM 7.1, and now my phone won't boot. It just constantly repeats the same screen of the little android chap on a skateboard as the phone boots up.

Gunna have to reinstall everything for the third time now, after installing GSF and then 7.1 merely days later.

No need to reinstall and lose your settings, the symptoms you describe usually only happen for a couple of reasons:

1. the download was corrupted (you can always check the MD5 sum of the file you copied to your phone against the one listed against the mod), or
2. you downloaded and installed the wrong version (e.g. the GSF mod on CM7)

You don't need to wipe and start from scratch. Just boot into recovery and use ClockworkMod to reflash the original ROM zip file without wiping data etc. This will overwrite the changes made by the theme/mod and you should be back to where you were before.

It is always a good idea to do a Nandroid backup before installing any mod, just in case, but reinstalling the ROM should be enough if you forget.

Added a FAQ to post #1 in case anyone is having problems. I'll add to it if there are other issues in the future.
