Disclaimer: this guide is not idiot proof! You must have 1/2 a brain, 1/4 a brain will not work! Currently we have no way to know if you actually have 1/4 a brain or 1/2 so please take caution!
If you have extra images in your framework folders, it may cause problems later.. so try not to copy & paste or add extra images! - jumaaneface
-Apk Manager (Click)
-Android SDK (Click)
-An image editor, Adobe Photoshop is recommended!
-One brain.. (Edit: Half a brain is needed, not the full thing)
-Fingers, 10 of them recommended!
-services.jar (If you want to change the clock color)

How-to edit services.jar, clock color:
1.) Go to your SDK folder.. example: C:\android-sdk-windows\tools
2.) Get your services.jar file & open it with winrar
3.) Take the classes.dex from it & put it in your android-sdk-windows\tools\ folder
4.) Open CMD
5.) Run the following command: "CD C:\android-sdk-windows\tools" (directory may not be the same)
6.) Run the following command: "java -jar baksmali.jar -o classout/ classes.dex"
7.) Go to classout\com\android\server\status\StatusBarIcon.s mali
8.) On line 34 it will look something like: "const/4 v7, -0x1"
9.) On line 34 change the above to: "const v7, 0xffffff" (That will be black)
10.) Compile the classes.dex by using this command: "java -Xmx512M -jar smali.jar classout/ -o new-classes.dex"
11.) Get the new-classes.dex from android-sdk-windows\tools\ folder & move it to your desktop
12.) Rename new-classes.dex to classes.dex
13.) Re-open the services.jar using winrar & past your new classes.dex in there
(Notice: After editing the clock color, it will take longer to boot the first time! Be patient!)
I may update this if people need an even easier guide...
