    This is what i want to know also. I've been reading through the threads for days ( cuz i don't want to hear "there's this thing called the search button" ) Anyhow, i know how to change the color of the status bar ( mine's transparent ) I know how to change the carrier icon. I know how to change the wifi bars.

    Questions:

    1. Where are the default wifi bars located in the filesystem? (so i can edit color with Photoshop)

    2. How do i change the color/font of the clock in the status bar?

    3. How do i change the color of the numeric battery in the status bar?

    and 1 unrelated to status bar...

    4. How do i change the color of the "slide to unlock" text? I changed what it says and the color of the the mask behind, but to change the color of the text itself?

    First of all, most of us find all this info ourselves. So either you're dumb or you're lazy. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume it's the latter for now.

    color clock statusbar, change color string
    <key>TimeStyle</key>
    <string>margin-top: 1px;color: transparent;</string>

    color numeric battery
    idk, you can put all your icons to black using StatusBarContentsMode in the info.plist file, google it, or look it up on Saurik's site

    Customize used to do coloring your springboard.strings, don't know if that still works but you can check.

    thx for the reply and as i said, i've been using the search button for anything related but i cant figure these specific issues. i appreciate the help. What i am not very familiar with is info.plist

    color clock statusbar, change color string
    <key>TimeStyle</key>
    <string>margin-top: 1px;color: transparent;</string>

    i know how to create this file, but which folder do i SSH it into?

    the info.plist is a configuration file, and this one (having settings for labels on/off, what your calendar icon looks like, the statusbar clock) is located in the main folder of each of your themes. Try downloading a theme like tenuis, or tenee, or mobilepod, you'll be able to see the filestructure.

    hey all.
    I'm making my homescreen as minimalistic as possible at the moment so my status bar ls transparent the battery is almost transparent and a custom wifi icon but I can't get rid of the alarm icon (don't say turn it off) I was wondering if it's possible to edit it or remove it someway?

    Go to modmyi, there's stock ones and also themed ones in the download section. if you can't find it hit search there and look for one of the png's
