this is sort of embarrassing...
i just re-upped the update.zip files. apparently i stuck the wrong framework-res in, instead of the new one with the light text and the dark background.
how do you know if you have the right one? i have some tron:legacy images as options for the lockscreen. if you only have the project elite ones, it's the the wrong one.
let me know if you want it or if i sent you the wrong one via pm.
