How To: Change the Text Color of Froyo Notifications
Are you tired of seeing the same type of text on your Droid X, when it comes to Notifications? If you are, relax because you are not alone and there are people out there who feel the same way. XDA member phimuskapsi is one of them and he actually did something about it. He wrote an app that will allow the user to change the text color in the notification area in Froyo (Android 2.2). The app he made is rather simple to use, but you have to follow the instructions in the guide carefully as you will be doing some hex editing as well.
So, if you are up for the challenge, head over to the guide thread and start playing with this neat little modding tool.

You can find more information in the guide thread.
