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.

Hey all! I sat down today, for hours, trying to figure this out and I finally got it. The solution was actually a little bit easier than I had thought but I had to jump through a lot of hoops, semi-boot loops and more.

Status Bar XML’s per a couple requests. Download and pop in an Extracted (NOT decoded) framework-res.apk. These are encoded with light colors. You CAN edit these in a hex editor like HxD, open up the file, then Find 0800001C Make sure “Hex Values” is selected.

EDIT: Currently Making a Windows App to do this and other things. Stay tuned.

You can find more information in the guide thread.

NVIDIA Launches SHIELD Android TV at Google I/O

Since Android TV was announced at Google I/O 2014, there has been very little activity in the way of hardware releases for the platform. Consumers had a very small selection to choose from in the form of the Nexus Player and Razer Forge TV, or they could buy a new Sony or Phillips television with Android TV on-board. These options, however, seemed a bit tepid at best; the Nexus Player was extremely limited in nature, offering very little storage, weak...

Devs Beware – Automatic Backup Privacy Risks

One new feature of "Android M" (speculation on potential names welcomed on the back of a postcard) which gained little attention at Google I/O so far was the introduction of a new, automatic backup feature for application data. Obviously, it's still early days yet, though you can download the developer preview (if you're brave!), so we can't be sure of the final implementation, but there are a few gotchas here that developers should be aware of. Automation The first is...

Below this is the start of a standard...
