i Change my Setting Themes. to Holo.Light. One problem is when you go into manage applications the text is white on a white background almost impossible to see. What XML file needs to be edited to change that and what part needs to be changed?

Settings ->Applications ->Manage Applications

If you're on a Linux distro
Code:
grep -r "manage app"
This should give you the XML file that's present in.

Smali files are files that define your action upon touch they are made by the compiler it transforms java code to smali..the XML files are the ones you need to edit

yeah you need to change them in many places... send the 4 files i'll try my best

if you want to do it by yourself

do the samething i told you b4 go to the folder where your manage_app.xml files are present and copy those files to a folder on your desktop and name it x
Code:
cd Desktop/x
find ./ -type f -exec sed -i 's/android:textColor="#FFFFFF"/android:textColor="#000000"/g' {} \;|
this will replace all colour codes from white to black put the modified files from x back to their respective folders then compile the apk, test
