Android Lollipop debuted with a lot of bells and whistles. Project Volta — Google’s take on optimizing battery life on Android was welcomed albeit with an uninspiring feature. The status and the navigation bar turned orange upon turning on the battery saver mode. Nitpickers were left perturbed by this visual change.
Developer “TheFragen” decided to take the matters in his hands and released an Xposed module today which does what it says – aims to bring back sleep to the nitpickers by removing the orange color from the navigation and status bar. Here’s a brief tutorial on how to remove the orange battery saver color in Android Lollipop.
Installing Xposed on Lollipop
For the uninitiated, Xposed was released for Lollipop. It’s not stable as of now, so the developer will not be responsible if it kills your kittens. Jokes aside, Follow the guide to get Xposed working on most Lollipop devices.
Once you get Xposed up and running, proceed to install XbatteryTweaks module from the Xposed repo. Install it, reboot and your job’s over.
Compatibility with devices
We tested it on a Moto G 1st Gen and it worked like a charm. However it may or may not work given the wide variation of Android devices. Some CyanogenMod 12 users are reporting that it’s working partially. Anyways, the developer has promised quick fixes for the issues.
As of now, the module simply removes the orange battery color but the developer has promised to bring more visual battery tweaks in the future. Follow the thread over at XDA for it’s progress.
