    In 2.1 there where some xmls in framework-res that you could hex hack to change the colors, there is also the color changer jar file avail on my website Android Ally I am not sure if the process is the same for 2.2 though :(

    Maybe he just extracted his framework and changed the color of his notifications using photoshop? I did that with my girls Droid1

    That's how I changed all of the icons in the notification bar, but the font color has to be changed by hex editor in the status_bar.xml file, I believe. I was wondering if there was an easy way to do it.
    I found this YouTube video:

    I think if anythuing, it'll be time consuming trying to follow the guide and figure everything out. But if you really want to do it, I'm sure you can get it done!
