    Ok, so I've made changes to the status bar and other items, re-zipped the folder, placed it on the sd card and used the following command to update the file using terminal emulator:

    adb shell
    su
    mount -o remount,rw /dev/mtdblock4 /system
    dd if=/sdcard/framework-res.apk of=/system/framework/framework-res.apk

    The last time I did this, it worked. It immediately re-booted the phone and when it re-booted, the new icons had applied. This time the droid got stuck in the boot animation and never booted. I had to restore my latest spr backup. Any ideas on what went wrong or what i need to do differently?

    I had one too many levels of folders in the zip file. However, now I can't figure out how to change text colors in the notification bar.

    I saw that last night but was reading it and it made no sense. Makes more sense this morning. I've never used terminal on the computer to interface with my phone is my problem with that, but I'm sure I can figure it out.

    I've been using the instructions in that guide every time I switch ROMs or themes for a while now, but I wasn't sure that it would still work on 2.2. Thanks for confirming that it does!!

    Just to make sure we're talking about the same thing, can you confirm that the ColorChange.jar v3.1 works in Froyo -- or are you talking only about the .xml editing instructions?

    Yeah, I was skeptical as well, but I really wanted to customize my own stuff... So I backed everything up and gave it a go. Worked like a charm!
