    hi guys.

    is it possible to force the icons in the top bar to stay in theme color
    rather than changing to white when status changes?
    just looks a bit naff imo :-\

    cheers

    What themes? Applied how? Surely you have learned by now we need detail to answer your questions? ;)

    well unless it is too obvious ;-)
    I mean cm7 themes. there are 3 in the rom install.

    I think it can be done in general because I had a flashed theme on
    redux2 that seemed to do it

    can you upload me one of the .apk's from the system/app directory for such a theme please?

    And, no its not too obvious. You could mean anything.

    I'll have a look tomorrow. It may be a simple image swap. If not ultimate online theme kitchen can add on and off custom icons

    hi Dan.
    no Im meaning the icons for signal etc in default notification area
    of screen. not the drag down area.

    ideally would be great to have that whole line just in theme color I reckon.
    but the one that changes a lot for me is the radio signal bar graph icon

    thanks
    dan

    Those icons all look themed to me. Can you supply a screen shot of the issue please?

    just took another screen shot of a 4 bar signal that is still in theme color.
    not uploaded that yet. so icons changing color isn't purely down to
    state change

    upload of not. bar with non theme colors

    Do you mean the fact they are grey when not connected to Googleservices like they should be? You want to change that yeah?

    hi Dan.
    that would be cool. but I'm more after stopping it going white from time to time.
    I'm not sure what it is trying to indicate if anything, as signal strength at the time seems
    the same.

    cheers
    dan

    ...and it seems odd that the clock is always white rather than theme color

    Thats on all Gingerbread AOSP roms. It just means you are connected to the networks but NOT connected to Google services. It is completely a state thing

    IMHO its useful to know this so wouldnt recommend changing these icons if I were you

    oh ok. thanks Dan.

    don't like it myself but hey :) not really bothered about Google services....or should
    I be? :-D

    thanks for spending the time on it.

    so I guess the redux2 blue theme got round it by using different icons maybe

    cheers

    Depends if you want to know if your gmail should be pushing or why you cant get the market to work or not.

    They can be changed. Any theme I used from UOT (Flashable that is) changed them. Try running the apk through UOT to see what happens.

    I may be wrong on the market, although did you buy anything? but its definitely google services.
