    Can anyone point me in the right direction to change the text color of clock, date and carrier name on a 2.1 ROM? I am using the stock ROM and modified my frameworkres.apk file with the Incredible status bar and icons but now I need to change the font color. I tried a few different methods but none have worked yet.

    Thanks!

    I attached a picture and outlined what I was referring too.

    All of those are controlled by the services.jar file. No way to make the clock white unless you deodexed the phone.

    To enable scripts do this on BB

    su
    mountsys
    enablescripts - if this gives you permission denied then do as follows

    chmod 755 /system/xbin/enablescripts

    If you are on BB 1.0 enablescripts is not on there anymore and the mountsys is now sysrw.

    terminal commands

    su
    sysrw
    cp /system/framework/services.jar /sdcard


    this worked for the first time but im tired now so maybe tomorrow i'll get it working

    this newer TE let me make the fonts larger :)
