    Post me your GenieWidget.apk and I will look at it. Tethering right now and just too lazy to pull it off my phone.

    K, first thing is the white_text.xml is blank. You must have deleted everything in it.

    I downloaded what I just posted and went to "res\color\white_text.xml" and this is what opened, not garble that I usually get when I try to open .xml's..
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <selector
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item android:state_pressed="true" android:color="#ffffffff" />
    <item android:state_selected="true" android:color="#ffffffff" />
    <item android:state_focused="true" android:color="#ffffffff" />
    <item android:color="#ff000000" />
    </selector>

    Still trying to change text color on Geniewidget. Just the weather on the widget, I have found this difficult to find. I have no problem making the edits to the xml's and getting them installed. I just can't seem to find the one I'm looking for. I've changed -res/color/white_text.xml- to inverted, also -res/values/colors.xml- just primary color.
    It changes the News widget text black but not the weather....Ive tried few other things but they were kinda just random shots. any ideas?
