    I'd be willing to make up a multi-state version of the CB skin (different colors for battery levels) if some one has a large sized, clean copy of the logo? Or even better, a .psd file of the logo?

    There seems to be an issue with BatteryEX versions 1.6 and 1.7 and skins. Make sure you have version 1.5 free/paid if you cannot get skins to show.

    If you do upgrade or want to upgrade do a backup first using BBSAK or similar so you can go back if skins do not work or download the zip from the bottom of this post and install via PC or follow the link for OTA that BlastTyrant found. Not in English but scoll down to the link for 1.5


    BatteryEx OTA







    For those having trouble adding Icons this may help. First open up your Media Folder in Windows:

    Double Click to Open your Blackberry Folder (Your memory Card):







    Locate the m4dev Folder and Open that:





    Create a 'Skins' Folder inside the m4dev folder and Open that:







    Name a New Folder 'BatteryEx' and Open that:







    Place all your unziped skin folders in this folder. Note: Make sure you do not have a folder within a folder for each Icon set.









    Go to the application scroll to the Skin Tab and chose your skin:


    Can NOT thank you enough for posting this step by step for dummies like myself...lol!

    Claudia, I am glad you like the skin set ...however, I think the background while little is actually annoying so I asked for help and Ducaticorse came through and aided me in solving the transparency issue when savings the skins so below you can download and replace the VWRedBeetle BattEXskin.

    For the previous 28 to 32 skin sets I made, in the next few days. I will change the transparency in all of the them so that the icon "floats" on your notification area. My apologies to all.

    These are a few that I made when I first got battery ex, they are pretty simple actually.

    New version is easier to navigate. It ha s a new UI look.
    The rest of the new features are for the paid version only.
    If I were you, i would download it since it has proven to be very stable.
    Make sure you get Version 1.8

    Do I need to uninstall v1.5 first before installing v1.8? I don't want to loose all of the skins I have on there now.

    I updated "over top" of my existing v1.5 and everything was smooth - I did not lose any of the skins I had installed previously. It would be worth backing up your skins if you're really concerned, but I had no issues. YMMV, as always.

    I installed 1.8 over top of 1.5 this morning and all went well, the skins are still there. BUT I have TWO icons now, they each open BatteryEX but one icon shows the skin I chose, the other icon does not change. The icon with skin has a text of the battery percentage, voltage and temp and the other icon is showing text of "628M/654M 96.1% FREE" I have no idea what this text is referring to, since when I open BatteryEX it shows that I have chosen the text to be "percentage, voltage and temp" ??? wonder what this second icon is for?

    Second icon "628M/654M 96.1% FREE" is referring to the amount of free memory available in your BB.......96.1% of 654 is 628 and must I say you have a one-of-a-kind fast Blackberry.........................

    Pattye, there are a couple threads asking about the same thing. As Julio explained, it's apparently a "MemoryEx" feature provided in the newer version by the Dev. Unfortunately, it's not clear what the numbers mean? They don't match up well with memory status as reported by the system or by other apps. More discussion on this topic in a couple other threads:

    http://forums.crackberry.com/f35/bat...leased-530057/
    http://forums.crackberry.com/f35/bat...-issue-528104/

    Pretty weird, mine shows: "122M/140M Free" while QL Status/Info window shows 84.66MB and the BB status screen shows 88.76MB "File Free."

    The "MemoryEx" icon is skinnable as well - which is cool, but only if it's really useful and tells us valuable info. As of now, I personally have it hidden or buried in a folder.

    Does this memory icon show free RAM or free device memory?

    it is very weird, my Device Info screen shows Memory Free: 292.25MB??? where the heck does the 654MB come from? I am just hiding the icon because it does not take a skin for some reason, if I change the skin inside that icon it only changes the skinning on my second icon.

    Paint.NET is a good program for resizing and putting transparent backgrounds around icons. It's pretty simple, but can be time consuming if you want to get them perfect.

    I've still been having trouble getting the skins I download to "take" on the app. I'd hook up my BB to my laptop and transfer over. They would show up but when I tried to "use" them it would go back to the default icon. For any of you having the same problem, try e-mailing the skin zip file and download to the BatteryEx file. That did the trick for me.
