    Just to clarify.. Are you unzipping the files and placing them in this folder: SDCard/Blackberry/m4dev/skins/BatteryEX

    ?. If you are doing that and it's still not working, might want to delete and reinstall BattEX.

    Made a few of them for ya. If you want to mix and match the icons, after you unzip them just copy and paste the charging, discharging, or small icon from one set to another and delete the old ones.
    Thank you Spiral! Your wonderful to do these for us and always so helpful. Threads like this have such nice folks. You truly are appreciated! :-)

    Thanks so much for the kind words Melonie! For the most part, I find making these pretty fun!

    Hmmm. Well, looks like the only thing I've done different from you was installing OTA (Over The Air) instead of using DM. You could try deleting it again and installing OTA from the CB Superstore. Here's a link BatteryEx free for OS5.0 | The Ultimate Battery Info Viewer - Utilities BlackBerry Apps - Crackberry BlackBerry Apps Store . If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas.

    That is what I was going to suggest. I have had trouble with some apps that I loaded via the DM, but OTA worked great. Sometimes it seems that RIM designed the BB to work OTA first, everything else only if no OTA is available.

    Good Luck!

    You've got the folder set up correctly! Couple things. The images need to be .png instead of jpeg. As for why the file size is smaller, it's due to them not being png's, the background not being transparent, and the M doesn't fill the entire image.

    Hope that helps!

    Lol...boy am I way off. A lot more work than I though. How hard is it to make the png? Is it just how they save to the folder? Also, can you use any program to make transparent background or do you need a fancy program?

    what kind of computer do you use? if it's a mac, you can do most if not all of the work from the "preview" application. If you have a PC, you'll have to use a 3rd party application or image editing website since paint doesnt preserve transparency.

    converting to png is super simple. you can upload the image to iaza.com and hit "convert to png" and then save. making the background transparent is slightly more complicated. you can use the erase tools on fotoflexer.com to remove the background, although it can be tedious work.

    If you are on a PC download Gimp. It's a free program similar to Photoshop. Tons of features. It converts and saves files to .png (and lots of other formats) and it's easy resize images and to make backgrounds transparent.

    Hey Everyone!

    I'm having a battery ex problem as well ...

    I'm new to the Torch and it seems as though I can't hide that annoying memoryex portion of the app and when I want the batteryex icon to show up a weather slot position, the memoryex shows up instead

    any ideas on what i should do? TIA!

    Here is a set that I "created" by maniupulating the work of others. I took battery icons created by Songbird and added Christmas icons created by curvedthumb, LuJuCa and Spiral_ouT. I'm hopeful that those folks don't mind my doing so, but certainly wanted to give them the credit. For those who like this set, they are the ones deserving of the credit. It was just something I wanted for myself but thought I'd share. This way I get the Christmas feel but still remember it's my battery! :-) Because each one has what amounts to two icons, it might be a bit "memory intensive." I'd post a preview but, sorry don't know how to do that.
