Default Accent changer for Focus & other Samsung devices

Thanks to the code by RustyGrum (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=914055), I've put together an accent changer app for the Focus and other Samsung devices.

I have a version here that should work on HTC, LG and Samsung devices! Please test and let me know if it works

I can confirm that it works on the OMNIA 7 ! Many thanks for this.

The app changes the color in the registry but not the name of the accent.
If I start my settings app for changing the theme the color is changed but the name is still the same but the theme changer shows the changed name.

Cheers

No problem here when changing the names etc. I created a dark blue theme. Looks very clean. I changed the pink theme to dark blue. It replaced the naming for me.

It looks like that there are differences between Focus and OMNIA 7.

For example I have changed the pink accent to darkblue.

On my OMNIA 7:

1. the name of the accent isnīt change.
2. The color of the homescreen tabs is changed to darkblue
3. If I run e.g. Voice to text the tabs are still pink and not darkblue.


Any ideas ?

The reason it's likely not working for you is the regional code for your language (german.) In the registry, the names for the colors are stored on a per-language basis, in different locations. En-US, for example, is 0409. You'll need to go to the correct location yourself, and edit the entry. I made an editor tonight that can edit the values, get it here.

Itching to get my hack on.

Thanks for the information. If I change the region/language settings to en-us also the name of the accent color has been changed. Confirmed.

But if I run Voice to text app on my OMNIA 7 the color of the tabs is still not changed...

Registry tweak only colors the native pre-installed apps. Coloring silverlight apps need write access to \Windows.
