This is a step by step to how can you Modify the WP7 accent and background colors for WP7

first you need to unlock your phone using ChevronWP7

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=857127

and Install the registry editor

http://forum.touchxperience.com/view...php?f=20&t=593

to modify the accent colors use the Advanced Configuration

http://forum.touchxperience.com/view...php?f=11&t=590

Use the registry editor to modify the background of the dark theme go to those Keys and change the value to your favorite color in HEX

[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\1\Basethemecolor]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\1\TextHighContrast]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\1\TextBackGround]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\1\pageBackGroundColor]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\1\SysTrayBackGroundColor]

You might also need to change the font Color
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\1\TextNeutralColor]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\1\ListPickerBackgroundPre ssed]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\1\ContrastColor]


to modify the light theme back ground color:


[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\0\Basethemecolor]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\0\TextHighContrast]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\0\TextBackGround]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\0\pageBackGroundColor]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\0\SysTrayBackGroundColor]

You might also need to change the font Color
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\0\TextNeutralColor]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\0\ListPickerBackgroundPre ssed]
[HKLM\ControlPanel\themes\0\ContrastColor]

to get the colors in Hex you can find some good color combination here

I played around a bit yesterday and nearly f*cked up one of the themes
I changed only pageBackGroundColor to some greenish ones as i wanted on my homescreen, but everytime the theme got f*cked pretty bad. After first change _everything_ was black except systray/status bar and i had to change design blind, after 2nd change everything was white with some pretty bad distortions and again had to change blind.

So can anyone tell me, which exactly to change or do i need to change all of them to my wanted color? :/

no comment on that one ^^

yeah, i just changed the edited registry values back to normal manually.
so which entry is the one to edit the homescreen background?
it should be just pageBackGroundColor and sysTrayBackGroundColor right?

//edit
oh man, i forgot "FF" in front of hex-color-code
now it works
so it has to look like #FFhexcodeofyourcolor -.-
