    how do you change the carrier color and the time color? cant seem to figure it out, and there's nothing in cydia to do it?

    the carrier icon image is called

    Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png AND FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png

    and are in Bundles/com.apple.springboard in your theme

    one is for lockscreen or homescreen and 1 is for in apps, i dont know which is which as my 2 are identical.

    you can change the color of the statusbar clock with a simple .plist edit as follows >>>

    <key>TimeStyle</key>
    <string>color: yellow</string>

    just insert this into the body of your Info.plist in your theme

    EDIT : if you don't have an Info.plist copy this to notepad >>>

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>TimeStyle</key>
    <string>color: yellow</string>
    </dict>
    </plist>

    save as "Info.plist"

    insert into main folder of your theme

    replace "yellow" with color of your choice

    thank you!! i got it working.
    now on the homescreen, where the status bar is black, the clock is normally white, and when you say open safari the bar turns white and the clock becomes black.
    is there a way to control the clock color based on the status bar color?
    also
    is there a way to change to actual status 'bar' to a different color?

    also i dont have Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png AND FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png in my themes
    each of my .theme items does something different, (1 for the springbord backround, 1 for the slider etc.)

    also i am using MakeitMine for the carrier, does that change something?

    thanks for your help

    yep

    Default_BG.png
    FSO_BG.png
    FST_BG.png

    com.apple.springboard

    OR you could just add the bar to the top of your Wallpaper.png, and to the top of your LockBackground.png in the root of your theme, but that wouldn't apply inside apps
