    I've noticed that my 3g icon changes colors. Someone with more knowledge please explain.

    Sometimes its greyed out. Sometimes the 3g is white but the arrows are greyed out. Those I can guess.

    What really bothers me is when the 3g is white and then the 3g changes to green. When it changes to green so does my signal bars. Then when I switch to wifi the signal bars go white and after a few seconds the signal bars go green and the wifi icon goes green with it.

    What's all them mean? Is there an icon glossary somewhere?

    I've experienced this with 1x speeds where CTMOD does not have white icons for 1x speeds (well an older version didn't)

    Im guessing your experiencing the same.

    Okay, what I've noticed is that it will only turn green (or whatever theme color) if you have Background Data enabled in Account Settings. In addition to that, I found that the grey color is referred to as "connected" and the green color is "fully connected."

    So basically, the green color means that your background data/syncing is working. It also seems to indicate a more stable internet connection.

    EDIT: Oh, and in CTMod I think the default theme only changes the 1X color to green. The 3G just seems to turn a brighter white I think. It's really hard to tell.

    The color of the icon shows if you are currently signed into a Google account

    Green means syncing to Google service

    Grey means you have a data connection but no connection to Google

    Thanks for confirming that. I was pretty sure I had read that before but couldn't find the post.

    I think Bloodawn had mentioned it.
