    How do you make the task bar at the top of the droids screen a different color. I tried the themes in the market that showed a black taskbar but no luck with any of them actually changing the color of the task bar.

    But I have seen it on screen shots but I guess those aren't necessarily droids. This is really driving me crazy. It seems so simple. I have a little experience in programming so I am wondering if that is a possibility. I just wouldn't know where to start.

    If the font was white I don't see there being an issue unless the icon is black. Which I don't believe I have seen an app with a black icon.

    Definitely need to root the DROID first and apply a theme/rom with a modified notification bar.

    Those screens are likely not droids. My wife's Eris has a black bar. And I agree, I'm jealous. I can't believe it would require a root. Bummer.
