Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
White Notification Bar for Your Droid Eris!
For those who don’t like the dark HTC Sense notification bar on the Droid Eris, XDA member stopxstart has created a nice mod that replaces it with the original white Android notification bar.
There is no simple update.zip (yet) to install it, so you’ll have to push 3 files to get it working.
You’ll need to have a rooted Droid Eris, and it might not work with all ROMs.

Currently this has only been tested to work 100% with:
- Evil Eris 2.0.1 (It will, however, break the Sense launcher. So if you want the white bar, use another launcher)
- Ic3Rom 2.0
It DOES NOT work on:
- TaintedVanilla 1.3.1
- Or any rom that has it’s System/Framework apk’s and jar’s odexed.
Please let me know if it works with any others.
To install, just push the 3 files and reboot. Booting takes about 5 minutes so be patient.
You can find more information and download in the mod thread.

Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
