    ok so im running 2.1 and im trying to get the launcher tab at the bottom of the screen to look like the hero launcher and ive pulled launcher2.apk from my phone edited it pushed it back and notthing changed now i notice for 2.1 when you want to change you home screen it refers to the default as launcher insyead of home which makes me think im editing the wrong files im thinking maybe my best bet would be to pull my framework-res and open it up to investigate and see whats up but before i do i was wondering if anyone knows which files i need to edit if anything just to save me a little time id appreciate it greatly

    The 2.1 Framework works for me, but is there a way to change the status bar Date and Clock font to white? They are hard to read with the new black bar.

    Thanks again guys!! The GRANITE bar for 2.1 is kinda so-so:redface: but is still better than the oem. any chance to make it look like the 2.01 on the first page in your photo? THX!!

    Great work teenfaces! Love the black notification bar. I hate to pick nits but is there any way you could remove the gray line in the status bar? In the black one there is a thin gray line that goes through the middle of the notification bar.

    i have a request, can someone with the 2.1 rom and the transparent status bar possibly make a backup of it and post it for me to use, or pm/mail me? I tried the installation myself and my phone booted and was stuck at the moto logo. i saw others had the same problem in another thread. i had to reboot a previous 2.1 recovery and i dont want to risk trying to change the st. bar again.

    My 1st post here and I just wanted to say.......

    .....after a couple of hours research, trial and error, and with all of the great advice posted within this thread, I've been able to switch out that fugly white notification bar with mrZoSo's from page 15.


    My thanks for this wonderful looking mod and to all the help provided here.

    Started from scratch tonight with an un-rooted Droid and now it looks awesome due to you guys!!! :icon_ banana:



    Lov'n the Droid.... Great phone!

    Very nice Im not big on framework-res modding but i like your icons is that bettercut being used? Im curious if you could make by request a version like that but instead of red highlighting have it all with blue highting for keypresses etc everything thats normally green or yellow/orange in default files.

    Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I'm trying this and running into the same issue. Everything is good to go till I put in this command.

    I also tried this way too,
    1. reboot into recovery mode
    2. execute the following commands
    adb shell
    # mount system
    # mv /system/framework/framework-res.apk /system/framework/framework-res.apk.bak
    # exit
    adb push /path/to/framework-res.apk /system/framework/framework-res.apk
    adb reboot

    when try to push the apk i still get the no such directory response.

    i have the zip file dl and renamed on the sd card. ive checked the extension several times and pretty sure its correct because the icon changed to the android system icon. that is what its supposed to look like right?
