    I have a new Samsung Droid Charge. Love it, hate the brown and orange system colors. I am using Launcher Pro (paid), but it won't give me any options to override the system colors. The "themes" just seem to allow changing the appearance of icons, not system colors. Are there any launchers / themes that will allow me to change the default system colors for my Samsung phone?? I don't need anything fancy -- just want to opt out of the brown and orange.

    system colors probably wont be able to be changed without rooting your phone.

    System colors are usually controlled in the framework-res.apk, SystemUI.apk (Gingerbread) and related packages.

    Launchers are not able to change these packages because of the way Android is set up - no app may change content in another app unless two or more apps are designed to work together.

    Or Samsung releasing a teeny-tiny update, since just about everyone hates the brown !:eek:
