    I've searched the forums, only seemed to fine one topic similar to mine, but the question was never answered so...

    Is there anyway to change the top lock bar on the iPod touch?

    It's the one where when you are going to unlock it, and it says the date and shows the time(the time is in a big font).

    I've looked at alot of peoples ipod pics on this forum and theres seems to be transparent/black...mine is white and it is really annoying me as it does not match with my theme >.<

    There is even a folder that I found while in WinSCP.../private/var/root/Library/Customize/TopLockBarImages.

    It's empty though...so there would be nothing to change.


    Basically, all I'm asking is, how do I get the big bar to be black?

    How would I go about doing that?

    I tried to delete the other.artwork file...bad idea. I copyed it into my documents, but everytime I try to put it back it keeps saying "Abnormal termination" >.<

    Haha, well, I had to re-jailbreak my ipod, like you said, most of the programs wouldn't work, but after I'm done doing all this shiz, and if it is still white, I'll pm you. But right now it's black

    When you edit the top bar in the other.artwork file, set opacity to 1%. It will be transparent on dark backgrounds but will be slightly gray on white.
