    I've asked as few times in various threads how to change the "green-on-gray" notifications when running Key Lime Kangerade, but have gotten no responses. That means either other users of this themed ROM have better eyesight than me or never look at their notifications. Or perhaps I did something that royally screwed up my notifications and no one else is having this issue.

    Regardless, this is my last ditch effort in looking for help for a fix. Spare Parts is a no go. Neither is any settings I can find on the phone as it currently exists. So what it comes down to is, where do I locate the notification files to make custom edits and how do I alter them?

    I have my backups done in both Titanium and CW Recovery so I'm ready to spend my weekend hacking my ROM to make it just right. I'm trying not to think about the fact that it'll all change as soon as the new froyo release rolls out in the next few days...

    Is it text coloring, or an actually graphic image you want to edit?

    Thanks GirL, I'll look into that link this afternoon (as well as any other solution posted here).

    I see that there are color change zip files posted in the Kangerade OP -- do those not work?

    Do you mean the 2nd post that has the "green with (and without) clock", etc? If so, then that is what I already did and it does change the notifications in the notification (black) bar to green which looks fine. It's the shade (with gray background) that looks bad. I tried flashing the "white with clock" over the old "green without clock" which fixed the bar but not the shade. Does that make sense?

    Yes, that makes sense. Then, in the link I sent you, you're going to want to concentrate your effort on the part about editing the xml files (steps 10-14), after you pull your current framework-res.apk.

    sorry I went to lunch before you posted the SS but go with what GirLuvsDroid said. Editing xmls is not hard but can be kinda confusing
