    You'd have to decompile the phone.apk and edit the XML. Though I'm not sure if decompiling themed apps plays nice. If you want, I can *try* and do it for you but I'd have no way to test if it would work beforehand since I have a nexus. Just pm me a copy of your phone.apk.

    **also post a screenshot showing the specific issue please.

    Assuming you're rooted, you should just be able to navigate to /system/app/phone.apk copy it to your SD card and then upload it on this thread if you want.

    Check your PMs. And just to be clear, you are actually using the phone.apk you are sending me, correct? It's just themed? Also, anyway to get a screenshot or a picture of the issue or something? "Contact text" is so vague...do you mean their name and number that pops up in the dialer when you start to dial?

    Shouldn't have moved it...should have just copied it. But if you got it back into /system/app then it's probably fine.

    It's not playing nice...pretty much what I thought. I think the line that needs to be changed is res/values/colors but every time I compile, I don't get a new unsigned apk. When I compile, my edits just go away. I think it's because it's already themed and that's causing issues. I'm not even sure if that's the right line or not though, it may actually be in framework-res.apk

    If your framework-res is themed too, then it won't do any good anyway.

    Are you on stock? If so, I'll try and find the stock phone.apk and I'll put the edits from the apk you sent me into it and then I'll fix what you want fixed.
