    you have to ssh into your ipod and then go to


    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    and i think its "BG.png" and "FSO_BG.png", i know there are two of them, and they are in that folder. enjoy


    EDIT: Ya its those two files up there.

    sorry, im sure some theme has them implimented, but i dont know where to look. all you have to do is go onto paintdotnet or gimg or photoshop and invert the colors or make them desaturated. and there you go. black. nothing hard..

    the only problem is that if you were to change it to black, the time in the center would be almost invisible, but the battery and the signal bar, along with the carrier message could be changed.

    what im simply looking for is...the Mobile Music player status bar used everywhere
    (black BG...with white icons and clock)

    anyone know how ... besides heavy duty coding?
    thanks again
