    I've edited the "Default.png" to make it look like this. This is the "Loading" part.

    But after the loading, it returns to normal color, how do I make the top status bar always black, as seen in the picture above?

    EX: AIM (The above picture is the AIM loading screen, it then switches back to the blue color when loaded)

    you pretty much have to edit the whole UI images, either in the app itself or the systems.

    Try this:

    Default_BG.png (status bar in apps)
    FSO_BG.png (status bar on springboard)
    FST_BG.png (status bar on lockscreen)

    I would create one of those, and put it in the UIImages folder?
    And what are the dimensions?
    Thanks

    Ohh,
    I think the proper name for it would be the "Navigation Bar", Im sorry. How would I go about changing that?
