    I am writing an app that requires some wait time for the user. During this wait time I would like to blink/change the entire (phone) screen, say, red->yellow then repeat until the app is done. How can this be done? Does this involve "accessing" the phone's graphics card/kernel? What is the easiest way? Thanks.

    I don't believe that you'll be able to change the entire display (unless your app is in fullscreen or immersive mode) without some serious root-level hacking. Your best bet would probably be to just change the background of your app's interface.

    Also, I'm going to move your thread to the Application Development board to better get the attention of fellow app developers who may be able to assist you better. :)
