    It's in your theme's info.plist file. I'm not sure what string it is but it could be this one:

    <key>TimeStyle</key>
    <string>font-family: Helvetica; font-size: 13px; color: #610505</string>

    Just change the RGB colour there and see if that works.

    To find the file, it is in: "/Library/Themes/YOUR THEME/info.plist"
    If it's not in there, then I guess you could just add it in.

    Well, if you use WinterBoard, the correct path would be /var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx/YOUR THEME/Info.plist , xxxxxx being a random combination of letters/numbers.

    You need to have an Info.plist in var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx/Your Theme/

    and the Info.plist needs to have this in it:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0"><dict>
    
    <key>TimeStyle</key>
    <string>font-family: Helvetica; font-size: 13px; color: #359fd0</string>
    
    </dict></plist>
    you can also change the font... to do this simply replace:

    Code:
    <string>font-family: [B]Helvetica[/B]; font-size: 13px; color: #359fd0</string>
    with any font available in the Font cache...

    to see what fonts you are able to use go to /System/Library/Fonts/Cache

    for example, i am using Verdana at the moment so i have

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0"><dict>
    
    <key>TimeStyle</key>
    <string>font-family: Verdana; font-size: 13px; color: #359fd0</string>
    
    </dict></plist>
    pm me if you have any questions

    yeas, there is a way to do this...

    i will post a detailed tutorial later on in this thread, as i am a bit busy now.

    but if all you want to do is change the font you can do this very easily with an application called FontSwap, i think it was made by Skylar and it's in Cydia.

    i have a complete soloution that allows you to use any font you can download off the internet... and if you want to, system fonts... so far the only problem with using system fonts is that you have to overwrite them and call them LockScreen, so far that's the only issue...

    SO, as i said before i will post a how to soon (maybe tomorrow), though so far i cannot change the colour.

    EDIT: I have figured out how to use system fonts without replacing and overwriting
