Change Text Coloro
Sunday 25th of April 2010
Ok! I decided to make my own theme for the N21. I have experience in design and all so this should not be a problem.I made a few changes and put it on my phone. Everything is OK. Except the status bar text color and the color of some buttons. I am working on a dark theme so I will need white text. I did manage to put white text on the clock using this tool: http://alldroid.org/threads/14738-ap...TED-02-17-10**But I can't manage to change the text color of the notifications. I tryed to get the status_bar.xml file and followed a tutorial that should make the notification white but without success.If anyone has an idea on how to change the text color please let me know.
Home screen widgets frozen although buttons work
Monday 15th of April 2013
In a previous question I asked why a digital clock widget froze every so often (there were no replies). This is now happening several times a day but I now realise that ALL screen Widgets, on all screens freeze (except the analogue clock) - PhotoFrame keeps the same picture, the Music Player keeps the same album art and, while the Play/Pause button works, it does not change on the screen. This also happens with all other toggle buttons (Bluetooth, GPS, Silent etc), they work but their screen image remains the same. Notification icons change as usual.Reinstalling the Widgets frees them up again as does restarting the phone but that is becoming a pain when you have to do it several times a day.Any suggestions why this is happening and how to fix it.Allan
Change Notification buttons
Monday 26th of September 2011
Hi folks. I've just upgraded from an HTC Hero running Froyd Villian, to a Galaxy S2.One of the things that I can't find how to change, is the buttons in the notification bar. There's one for Wifi, but not one for data. I don't have 3G enabled all the time, so is there a way to add that button in place of one of the others?My Hero had this as part of Froyd Villain.
notification sound volume quick change
Thursday 05th of January 2012
I need an app that will easily change the notifications for calls, texts, emails, etc. When the phone is on my belt it needs to be loud, when I am at my desk it needs to be quiet, when I go to a meeting it needs to be silent. It would be nice to have three buttons (loud, quiet, silent), that I could configure, to set the notification levels where I want them by just touching the button.

[Hardware MOD] Adding an External Notification Light to the Optimus V
Monday 09th of May 2011
I originally opened up my phone because I wanted to see if I could replace the LED used to backlight the hard key buttons with a brighter one and maybe change the color. I am using the backlight as a substitute for a notification light, but the keys are very dim. Well, it turned out that the LED for the backlight wasn't dim at all. It was super bright, and there were actually three of them. Because the buttons have their button circuitry directly under them, their backlight LED's are offset and the light that shines through is routed through a maze of rubber and plastic first. I decided that since the LED's were offset, I could just drill a hole directly over one of them and create my own notification light. The mod is very simple, but I'm going to purposely leave out pictures for some of the steps to scare away incompetent people that shouldn't be doing this to their electronic devices. If you can't figure out how to do this without the pictures, you shouldn't try this at all. This will void your warranty in the most OBVIOUS way. Do not try this unless you are comfortable taking a
Mobile Network Notification Panel
Saturday 30th of November 2013
So I just got the Galaxy S4 on AT&T yesterday. It came with Android 4.2. I came from an HTC Inspire and it had buttons that would turn of things like Mobile Network, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc, etc. After digging, I found out that you can change the buttons in the notification area. So I moved the "Mobile Network" button up there. Then I upgraded to 4.3 this morning and I noticed that the button was gone. Is this the same for anyone else. It is kind of annoying since I don't like to leave the Mobile Network on (I have a small data plan) and my old phone was able to turn off the network in one click. Anyone have a work around for this in the meantime if the feature is not coming back? Thanks

YouTube App not hiding notification bar
Wednesday 19th of March 2014
Hi, I'm having an issue when watching videos in full screen with the YouTube app. Sometimes, videos don't go to true full screen. The notification bar and navigation buttons change to a low-profile mode (only battery displayed on the bar, and small dots in place of the back, home and multitasking buttons), but never leave the screen. I have tried reinstalling the app and restarting my phone, but the problem still happens. I have no idea if the problem is with the OS or the app, but it only happens some of the time. Device: Nexus 5OS: KitKat 4.4.2
Lolipop update colors change
Thursday 23rd of April 2015
I have a Verizon G3 phone that just got updated with lolipop today.My home buttons/menu bar and top notification bar are neither white or black but a bright orange/red. changing the color in "settings"/"display"/"Home touch buttons" changes nothing...Does anyone have the same issue, and even better, a fix? Alright. Just after posting, I found a fix: I reloaded my wall paper (the free version of snowfall) and everything went back to normal.I keep the post in case someone had the same issue.
