    The top bar that is grey. That holds the wifi info and the battery status. I want to make that black with white text so it matches everything else yet no one has done that yet. Any reason why?

    This is very easy to do. Just open up ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist and scroll down until you find the entry for SpringBoard. Take a look at the integer entry for SpringBoard. It'll look like this:
    HTML:
    		</dict>
    		<key>com.apple.springboard</key>
    		<dict>
    			<key>SBDefaultStatusBarModeKey</key>
    			<integer>3</integer>
    		</dict>
    Se the default status bar mode is set to 3? Go through to each app that you want to change and make the number 3. If the specific app whose bar you want to change is not listed in your com.apple.springboard.plist, then add it using the bundle identifier (this can be found in each specific app's Info.plist).

    Have fun,
    Skylar

    is there a 'global' overwrite? or maybe a search and replace to 3?

    Find All? I'm pretty sure all editors, from plain text to the most advanced word editor has that function.

    Haha

    Sadly he is right. That means nothing to me. I have just got into modding and I am barely coping as it is but getting there. It just would look so good if that grey bar was black along with the black theme that was made by romeboards.

    But then I also had problems with that theme because some apps are still opening blue even after the added extras. Like mail and music and a few others. Also my photos top bar is black but transparent
