    Easiest way possible to change clock to white

    How to change Clock to White (took 5minutes)
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-themes/23453-stanrcs-black-bar.html

    Download this file send it to your Droid (or download it directly to Droid and find it using Metamorph in download folder), use Metamorph to theme it and theres your white clock. Then you can theme anything and white clock should stay. I used this and Adamz Theme and no problem.

    I have the same problem. Looks like one of the fixes requires you download an app on your comp? Only thing is i have a MAC and i don't think it runs on it. Is there any other way to change the color to white? I tried searching as well but all seem to say the same thing.

    I figured it out, in my opinion it's unecesarily complicated but I managed to find the easiest way to do it.... read over this How to change clock to white and blue (step by step)

    I have a mac so the xultimate option didn't work and is more complicated than what I did... go to page 3 or 4 of that thread and read carefully you will find people mentioning using the app root explorer, that's the way I did it so read on from there... hope that helps!

    You will need to use shell commands, using ADB. To do this on a Mac you will need to first download the Android SDK (google) and unzip it, then run this to setup your Mac to use it:

    Afterwards put your phone into recovery and mount both system and sdcard, then you can push/install/run anything you need to.

    PS- To start running shell commands through ADB on the Mac open a Terminal window, then type:

    ./adb shell

    Then you are ready to rock.

    Thanks. I tried configuring my mac to run ADB but it won't work. Keep getting "no such file or directory" I'm sure i am typing everything correctly.

    While reading that thread I got very confused wth the ADK SDK and all that stuff as i'm pretty technically literate... but not exactly savy or about to start developing my own stuff....

    all i did was get the proper .jar file (which you should have found and downloaded it from the thread i posted on the last page), have it on my mac desktop. I then connected my phone to computer via USB, mounted it so i could click on my phone and see everything, i then click on my phone... which shows all the SD card files... i dragged the .jar file into the "android" folder (just so i know where it is).

    Then i unmounted phone and disconnected it from my computer, lastly i used the app "root explorer" to look at my phones files... on the first screen after opening the app. you should see audio, cache, data, images, etc. etc.

    Click on "sdcard" and then on the "android" folder (where you put the .jar file when mounted to your computer). Fine the .jar file, long click on it and select "copy", then go back to the first screen of "root explorer" and click on "system" and then "framework", once in the "framework" folder paste the .jar folder you copied... exit out, restart your phone and your time displayed on the top right of your notification bar should be white!

    This worked for me and from reading that thread this also seems like bar far the easiest way to accomplish your goal, i hope my directions make sense... let me know if it works, if it doesn't i will check my instructions and clarify if needed, good luck!

    Thanks a bunch i guess i misread that thread! Now when i looked up root explorer it was like 1.20 in the market. Is there any other Free app that can do the same thing? I guess i would pay the 1.20 if i really wanted to fix it but if there is a free app that will do the same thing than i'd rather go that route.
