    Default colorize signal bars and battery on statusbar
    Is there a theme of some kind that will allow me to add color icons for the signal bars (ex. cellular and wifi) and the battery icon?

    I have come across a few but none that work reliably on my iPhone 4 with iOS 4.2.1
    I did install winterboard

    Thanks

    SSH into your theme folder (for any custom theme installed into winterboard) then in the UIImages folder you will find things like Black_Signal (cbf looking into my folders but its along those lines (Obviously "Signal" for your signal strength and "Wifi" for you wireless strength)) then there are two sets, "Black_x" and "Silver_x" you must replace all of these (to do with signal and wifi) with your desired images (in the same resolution obviously).

    I will definitely take a look at that. Thanks!

    Is there any way that I can copy these images and modify them for a new theme? That way I can go back if I decide to

    I found the folder you mentioned, but I do not have a battery icon theme. How can I change the plain battery icon on the status bar?

    Also, in the wifi theme I found there are more than one color icon. How do I know which one is being used?

    There is one called rainbow carrier if you search in cydia. I have it working reliably on my iPhone 4 iOS 4.2.1. And yes, I did make the theme.

    That works great for the cellular signal bars. I really like that one

    But I am still looking for one for the wifi and the battery icon on the status bar.

    I found a few color ones for wifi on cydia, but none work with iOS 4.2.1
