    Has anyone been able to find the xml that controls the text color for the options in this menu (black)? I would like to change the color from black to white... I know that you can change the entire system color from styles.xml but I would like to just change the color for this type of menu... thanks!

    I am going to change the background... I have already done it and changed it to red text by changing the color system wide but I dont want to do that... I was hoping someone knew where to edit this color for just the menus.....

    I don't mean to jack your thread, but I am looking to do exactly what you don't want to do. I need to know where and what .xml file to edit to turn a themed blue (system wide) font back to white. The blue makes the text hard to read. You stated is was the styles.xml but i'm not finding it. Any help would be appreciated.
    Edit: Nevermind, I found the .xml hidden with apktool. But I'm still lost as to what files to edit. I might just talk to the themer and see if I can get an edited framework-res folder to push to the phone.

    he means it has to be decompiled with apkmanager/tool to see it. it's probably in the values folder
