    Is there a way to disable the clock in the notification bar? I've seen it done with themes, just wondering if there was a way to do it from the source code.

    Do the themes actually disable it (i.e. give you back the bar real estate) or do they just make it not visible?

    From what I understand, it disables it so everything slides over, instead of just having a gap and making it invisible

    Correct. The clock is gone and the icons move over.

    I like that option. Gives a nice clean look.

    OK, I wish BlackBar did that. I'll have to pester the author.

    Themes can't remove the clock completely - you'll need something in spare parts to do it.

    I should revise - maybe a theme could remove it with a change to services.jar, but you would never be able to get it back if you wanted.

    MM and froyo don't seem to get along well, usually causes fc's and reboots. But if somebody decides to give this a shot let me know

    you can make it completely transparent in spare parts. Kind of a temporary fix until cvpcs can address it

    It would need to be a hack done to services.jar. Any metamorph or update.zip theme that makes that mod HAS to be custom to a particular rom - as all they do is include a modified copy of the system.jar file and transplant it.

    I would like to see a spareparts mod for that as well - not sure if that is even possible or reasonable, but I didn't think changing text colors in there was possible until I tried this rom!

    CyanogenMod has all sorts of color options as well as removal of clock in the spare parts it includes in the ROM.

    I've spent hours trying to figure this out. I've tried using Notepad+ to compare StatusIcon.smalis from stock service.jar with those from themes with the clocks removed and just can't get it. There seems to be very slight differences between the two, but I have no idea what I'm actually looking at. Making what I think are the correct edits results in a boot loop or the clock still being there. Guess I'll jump on IRC and beg for help.

    The sad thing is that when I removed the clock on stock Froyo, it made me nuts and had to put it back. Now it's making me nuts *not* being able to get rid of it. What did I do to deserve this oh lord?

    to remove the clock in-code, you simply get ahold of the TextView that it displays as, and set it's visibility to "gone". there are 3 types of visibility for a view: "visible", "invisible" (space is left), and "gone" (as if the view was never added to the layout).

    i have no idea how this would be modified in smali, but never fear, the bug is on the bug tracker and i have already decided to include it in the next release. if you can't wait until then, well i hope at least that this has given you a little bit of direction on where to look to fix it :)
