    I am running a custom ROM currently that I love and really just want to know if there's a way to dump the clock from the notification bar without flashing a different ROM that offers the capability of doing this.

    Is there some custom theme apk I can install that will let me fiddle with the stuff in the notification bar?

    Or is anyone else here running the same ROM I am currently (DocRomV8.ADJP5 w/SetiroN kernel) who knows how to edit/mod the notification bar?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am wanting to do the same thing. I have the Stock 2.1.1 ROM that came with my phone. The clock removal only has been done on other Android phones and it seems that the services.jar file in the framework folder is where this info is stored(if this wrong someone please correct me). I have downloaded a modified services.jar file for the clock removal(from other brand phone) I wonder if I could rename my present file on my phone and then place this new file in the framework folder and if it didn't work I could go back and remove the new file and change name back on the original.

    I haven't tried it yet I was because I not 100% sure if this services.jar file is really specific for each type of phone. There may be other things in this file that might conflict with Captivate phone. If anything did really screw up I assume I could into download mode and reinstall Stock ROM.

    Did anyone ever get this services.jar file to work. I would sure like to get rid of the notification bar clock also.

    To anyone interested, I finally found a custom ROM that has the clock ripped from the notification bar; no need to locate files yourself to remove anything.

    Check over on XDA and look in the Captivate Development forum if interested.

    The ROM is FireFly 2.1
