Red Theme for Android Market
What about having your Android device market application with a nice red theme? XDA member Natemz found out a way to change the green color on Market 2.2.7 for a seasonal Christmas red touch which can survive even an official update. To install boot into clockwork recovery and select zip from SD card then let run and finish with reboot. The developer recommends to do a backup with nandroid or similar.
And as always, please leave feed back as a way of say thanks to original poster.

Here is a red themed Android Market 2.2.7. It removes the green colors on the icons and the app. Thanks to @santiemanuel for finding the files needed to change the green top header of the app.

I am not responsible for any problems you might come across after installing this mod.Please only try this if you are comfortable with this type of hacking.
