    Hey, so I've been looking for a while now (am new to modifying my hui 8100) but seriously can't find anything on modifying the color of the notification bar (or top bar i've heard called).

    Is there an app or any way of doing this?

    I've looked into this also as a new to Android D2G owner. Changing the bar looks to be beyond the standard rooting procedure and gets into the flashing and custom rom arena. This employs the likes of Droidmod and should be preceded by a backup (Nandroid). Once completed you can replace any number of elements including the noti-bar with custom themes.

    Of coarse your model of phone, android version, level of experience and tolerance for risk of bricking your phone will factor in. I am probably going to wait until the D2G gets proven custom roms and good how-tos on loading and recovery to stock.

    On my rooted Eris, I can change it using the Cyanogen Mod settings. That menu is available in all Cyanogen-based ROMS. I don't have a clue how to do it with any other phone.
