Default [Q] How to change text color in manage applications

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
