    I have two apps that I use frequently, the stock music.apk and missed call app for my notifications. I'm running UD9.0 on my phone and when i pull down the notification bar these two apps have black text and it's hard to read. I just want to change them to white. So I edited the apk of "missed call" and in the res/layout folder there is a xml file which i tried to change the hex code but I guess I don't have it right because it didn't work. Anyone have an easier fix or any suggestions would be great!

    Thanks!

    I tried it on my phone with a custom color and the music.apk is black and grey like in your pic. So, this is specific to the app itself. Look in layout folder for xmls. I will check it out as well.

    this is the file i tried to edit in missed call:
    de.anno.android.missedCall.apk\res\layout\statusbar.xml

    i'm probably doing this wrong but when i went into this file where it says:

    t.e.x.t.C.o.l.o.r.ÿÿÿ.a.n.d. the 3 ÿÿÿ i put there because there was 00's in those three hex spots meaning black (i think) so i made them FF FF FF for white. i may need to do it somewhere else too but i have no clue what i'm doing lol.

    i haven't messed with music.apk yet.

    Hey man, this is news to me that I have a modified music apk, lol!! I see the same issue as the OPer has with the music.apk and looked over every xml in it. For people who don't know, get a hex editor and do a search in any xml for hex string of 08 00 00 1C. This is for text and the next four groups are the color. I only found three files that have color. I modified them and made a MM out of those files, but I still have the black text. Man, this is going to get to me now.

    Now that I think about it, maybe I have the wrong xml file? I'm pretty sure I know what all the other ones point to. Here's a zip of them all anyways.
