    Or a tutorial on how to remove the clock from the notification bar? I hate the waste of space because I have a great looking widget on the screen.

    Thanks

    Great link^. I will have to look into removing the clock in the near future. Would this mod work with the stock rom? Btw, I just found a nice clock app, it has the date as well. Check out this app everyone: Widgetsoid

    I just did it myself. Started to loose my tiny little mind when my boot animation kept looping. Then just as I was about to drop back 10 yards and punt, it came up. no clock. Sweet!

    sorry to hear that. i tested it before i posted. i did notice my boot took a little longer than usual. the only other way i saw floating around had to do with an .xml edit (somewhere in services.jar, something about making the clock text black) which is a little beyond my depth

    it should, of course you have to at least be rooted as it requires clockwork recovery

    I'm on the stock ROM and it didn't seem to work. Looping animation I can deal with but it stuck on the M logo.

    Any idea what build the services.jar file this mod replaces came from?

    I'm on 2.3.340 and I don't want to be replacing system files from older builds.

    System version? ROM? Screen shot?

    Does anyone here have a different battery icon in the upper task bar. The circular battery icon shown by fabolous in the link was dope.

    Now I'm thinking it's geared towards custom ROMs.

    Most likely. I believe Fab made it to work in conjunction with the themes for his Apex ROM.

    apparently some people have been having success using xultimate

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/xeudoxus/47283-release-xultimate.html

    this post has the step by step instructions.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/bugless/60331-easy-way-remove-clock.html

    the OP seems to be an on OG droid, but according to the release notes, it should now work with the droid x. i've never used this tool before, so i personally can't say if it will work or how safe it is, so proceed with caution and for the love of god make a nandroid before you go screwing with this stuff!

    I used the tool on a Droid X, with success.

    Thanks for the link. I remember this from about a year ago. I'm trying it now but it fails when I get to removing the clock. I think it's because it thinks that the file has already been patched. Maybe from applying the the services.jar from the earlier link? Anyone have the stock services.jar they'd be willing to share?

    Update: I've been fighting with this Xultimate since my last post here (like 3 hours) and have come to what I can only describe as Epic Fail.

    Ok, maybe not epic, if I understand it correctly, I think my phone is now deodexed. It passes all the tests when I run test.exe but when I go to option 3 in the advance menu, it errors out saying that the phone is not deodexed. WTF?

    I'm sure it's my lack of understanding so maybe someone can shed some light on it for me.
