I did a search for just a black status bar for a stock FRG22D w/ root. I saw the HTC sense theme, and its great, but some of it doesn't work on my phone. Can anyone direct me to something like this?

Thanks

I can make a MetaMorph file that will implement these changes for you, are you interested in just the Notification Bar, or the notification bar and all of the other parts within the notification panel ?

When you pull down the notification panel there are several other .png's that make up the panel, you can make them all black, or keep them stock white and just have the notification bar black

I didn't think of that, it would still be a problem...there are a few ROM's that let you change the color of the clock, ongoing notification and banner text from right within the settings

SS 4.7

UD 8.0

Then a black notification bar/panel would work great

Don't you have to be deodexed in order to make some of the changes necessary for having a black status bar? (i.e. clock color, etc.)

I can make that bar for you with the color coding. PM me if you need me to.

Yeah, you need to deodex your phone.

I used these directions, and it was easy:

[HOW-TO] Manually deodex your phone. - Android Forums

Just make sure you've got the android sdk, Java, the Motorola drivers for your system, and xUltimate v2.2. I was even able to do this from a Win 7 virtual machine running in VMWare fusion (on a Mac), so it's more than doable.

These are directions for Droid X, so some of the steps should differ (although, the commands in the other thread will work fine because of the way mount works).

First, I couldn't find guava.odex, so you probably won't have it either. You can use option 5 to download and deodex all in one step (I think that's the option number--I'm writing this from memory).

Second, the commands for the Droid should be:
Code:
adb shell
su
stop
mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
cp /sdcard/done_app/* /system/app/
cp /sdcard/done_frame/* /system/framework/
rm /system/app/*.odex
rm /system/framework/*.odex
mount -o ro,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
reboot

When remounting, you don't need to specify the file system, because only the mount flags are changed from ro to rw or vice versa, no actual unmounting and remounting is done.

But of course, before you do any of this, BACKUP. Good luck.

Thank you to everyone!

Pir8Bob: Thanks for the link! That will really help. Question: You mentioned option 5 to deodex in one step, I don't know if Im missing something but I don't see where or how. Should I just follow that tutorial to the T?

Thanks again!

Um, it was an option on the xUltimate program. I followed the instructions to the T and it worked fine for me, so if anything I wrote doesn't make sense, follow the instructions instead, because like I said, I am writing from memory.

It worked! I deodex'ed my phone, then reinstalled the Theme and the numbers turned white.

Thank you everyone who posted in this thread!
