    Black Status Bar

    I did a search for just a black status bar for a stock FRG22D w/ root. I saw the HTC sense theme, and its great, but some of it doesn't work on my phone. Can anyone direct me to something like this?

    Thanks

    I can make a MetaMorph file that will implement these changes for you, are you interested in just the Notification Bar, or the notification bar and all of the other parts within the notification panel ?

    When you pull down the notification panel there are several other .png's that make up the panel, you can make them all black, or keep them stock white and just have the notification bar black

    Yeah, that would be great if you could.

    I really liked how the Sense Theme looked, located here:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...oyo-frg22.html
    but it doesn't work properly for me (time is still displayed black, as is "Verizon Wireless").

    Thank you!

    I didn't think of that, it would still be a problem...there are a few ROM's that let you change the color of the clock, ongoing notification and banner text from right within the settings

    SS 4.7

    UD 8.0

    Then a black notification bar/panel would work great

    Don't you have to be deodexed in order to make some of the changes necessary for having a black status bar? (i.e. clock color, etc.)

    I can make that bar for you with the color coding. PM me if you need me to.

    Yeah, you need to deodex your phone.

    I used these directions, and it was easy:

    [HOW-TO] Manually deodex your phone. - Android Forums

    Just make sure you've got the android sdk, Java, the Motorola drivers for your system, and xUltimate v2.2. I was even able to do this from a Win 7 virtual machine running in VMWare fusion (on a Mac), so it's more than doable.

    These are directions for Droid X, so some of the steps should differ (although, the commands in the other thread will work fine because of the way mount works).

    First, I couldn't find guava.odex, so you probably won't have it either. You can use option 5 to download and deodex all in one step (I think that's the option number--I'm writing this from memory).

    Second, the commands for the Droid should be:
    Code:
    adb shell
    su
    stop
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    cp /sdcard/done_app/* /system/app/
    cp /sdcard/done_frame/* /system/framework/
    rm /system/app/*.odex
    rm /system/framework/*.odex
    mount -o ro,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    reboot
    When remounting, you don't need to specify the file system, because only the mount flags are changed from ro to rw or vice versa, no actual unmounting and remounting is done.

    But of course, before you do any of this, BACKUP. Good luck.

    Thank you to everyone!

    Pir8Bob: Thanks for the link! That will really help. Question: You mentioned option 5 to deodex in one step, I don't know if Im missing something but I don't see where or how. Should I just follow that tutorial to the T?

    Thanks again!
