    xUltimate is a tool that will help do this for you (not a ROM containing APK's). It is able to apply various patches to your phone......one of the patches is to make the ongoing notifications for Pandora all white.

    It basically is a script that runs to automatically pull out the apk (using and adb command), apply the patch, re-sign the APK, and re-install (using abd) the APK back onto your phone.


    Certain APK's like Pandora will always remain black even if you've edited the framework XML's which is why this tool is useful. It does all the headache of editing/resigning for you.

    Yes xUltimate is awesome with the easy to use scripts. Just look at it this way though. What happens if an app (MixZing) has the black text but is not in xUltimate. You are going to have to learn how to do this yourself cause the resources aren't always going to be around.

    I got it!!!! Pulled the statusbar.xml for the Music.apk. Thanks to the Theme guide from the XDA that thebowers (THANK YOU) provided. Opened it up and looked for the two numbers 44 and 45 and changed them to 41 and 42 save, rezip, push it back on and it worked perfectly. Also noticed that the string that alway preceded the color number was 08 00 00 02. So that might be the marker for it in other .apks as well??? And here is the finished product..

    Yes look for statusbar.xml and then those hex strings. Pandora has three though.

    Good job, did you do the one for downloading/installing Market apps on the Notification pull down too?

    It is in DownloadProvider.apk.

    Thanks to the thebowers for the link to that guide...some cool stuff in there!

    Here are all three for Music.apk, Pandora.apk, and DownloadProvider.apk
    All 3 have the text colors changed and work perfectly on bbv1 so they should work on any ese81.....and I would think pandora would work on anything. change back to an .apk and push them into the system/app.

    Do you have any idea what the numbers correspond to? The 41,42 and the 44, 45. Is there a list of colors they match up with so I could try and get the text to a red in the notification? I would greatly appreciate it...thanks!!!

    hate to revise an old thread but trying to do this for the leaked froyo on the x. The statusbar xml has no 41 42 code, also has no textcolor line like in other xmls. anyone get pandora and music to show up white?

    btw i have read numerous thread elsewhere and none have a solution...
