    Default how to change the battery icons?
    Whats up everyone. I have been looking all around and i cant seem to find where the guide is that shows how to change the color of the battery icons. If someone could point this out to me i would appreciate it. I was also looking to turn my battery icon from green to blue so if someone could post that, it would be awsome as well.

    I want to change the menu bar battery icons. I have Squid installed on my phone, and I've set the permissions of HeadsetBatteryBG_* to Read/Write/Execute, but they still don't show up. What am I missing?

    Default battery bar changing on jailbroken 1.1.3 (PC)
    i used "customize" off of the installer.app. you download the icon set if you haven't already, and you have to use your winSCP login etc to get into the file directory of your iphone.

    find your "library" folder under "root" and there should be a "customize" folder (if u installed customize, remember) and there will be a "BatteryImages" folder. there will be a folder inside labeled "Backup" which the original battery bar. dont mess with it if you want to keep it. make a new folder in batteryimages and label it whatever, copy and paste the new battery images into those, and close out of winscp. if u go to ur iphone and into "customize", battery images, etc etc you will find the new battery bar.

    main point: use winSCP lol

    I think he means the "header battery icon", you can use customize for that, or winCSP, overwrite "DefaultBattery_charged", "DefaultBattery_Insides", and "DefaultBattery_Charging" ...

    There is a blue header battery icon surrounding in MMi, use search!

    When you download the custom battery Icons and they already have folders to them can you just drag them into the library where the backup is at? If so once I open customize (iphone) and look for the icons, there are as many files in there as the folder (10 battery icons) instead of just one, is that right or did I forget to do something? Notice the default has only one so shouldnt the one I dragged using winscp be the same?

    This does not work with the new customize 2.1.1. Also it's possible to do it without customize?

    Anyone able to verify this with the iPhone 4? I tried to do this exact same thing but it didn't work.

    Any other tips to get the above to work? I replaced the stock images with replacement images, respringed, and no luck. The old ones are still in place, which makes me think that i didn't replace the correct images, but i've traversed quite a bit of the directory structure and i can't find any other files named HeadsetBatteryBG or anything similar.
