About this app

This is the original App from xda-developers. Don't accept fakes!
You can get support here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2516913

Just install this App and click on "Enable Battery Percent". Then reboot. You can uninstall the App afterwards. The setting will remain.

No root needed!

You can only see the battery percent text, if the battery is empty enough. (White text on white battery!)


FAQ:
Do I need a rooted device?
No, should work on any 4.4+ device :)

Can you change the text-color?
Sorry, this is impossible with a simple app like this one, because the color is hard-coded in SystemUI.apk. You need to decompile that apk, edit one line of source code and then recompile it. Actually, I don't plan to do this, because I don't like to change system-apps. Also, the OTA-Updates from google would fail after that and it would require root.

After removing the app the percentage is still there.
That's because the app changes a system setting. The app does NOT display the battery itself!

I uninstalled the App. Now I want to disable the percent display.
OK, just install the App again, uncheck the setting and uninstall it.

It was great! It never consumed battery, neither opened in a second window, it doesn't even looked like a app - just a build-in feature of the system. My smartphone updated the system and now the app doesn't work anymore - neither is needed because now it shows the number. But I'm extremely thankful for the app, it helped a lot before!

At first, I thought it hadn't worked. But it did, and I rewrote this review accordingly. The battery indicator, previously missing, is indeed now there on the status bar. The problem is, the % number on the indicator is TINY – and I mean microscopically small! So it wasn't really worth the effort – but that's the fault of Android, not this app, which did all it should (by flicking a hidden switch buried in the system). Device: Tesco Hudl 2 (Android 5.1 Lollipop)

App is misleading. I expected it to show the percent on top of the bar (like the preview). My OnePlus 2 already has some system settings to show the battery percent next to the bar or instead of the bar. This app is simply enabling and disabling the same setting. Reboot wasn't necessary and rebooting didn't do anything different.
