    This is the thread for the Change Carrier String and Color of Carrier String and Date/Time Patch.

    Unknown_2009-19-11_212646.png

    Description
    This patch will enable you to change the carrier string, as well as change the color of the carrier string and the date/time string, for WebOS 1.3.1

    Install Instructions
    Download the .patch file from below. Save it somewhere on your computer. Use NOTEPAD to open the file. Change the four places that are capitalized...you should change two values for the carrier string inside the quotes and then two values for the colors (the colors can be different). You can find the six digit hex codes of html colors at Web colors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Save the file once you are done editing it. Open Quick Install (http://forums.precentral.net/canuck-...ll-v2-9-a.html) and click on the plus icon on the right hand side. Find the .patch file wherever you saved it on your computer and click on it. Then, simply hit install. Once the patch installs, QI will automatically restart your phone and you should be all set!

    If anyone tries this patch and has success with it, can you please comment? I checked it in the emulator, but want to make sure there are no problems on real phones.

    Thanks!

    The only patch that I saw Jason had made was the carrier string change. It is different code (not very impressive, I just did it differently) and includes the change in color of the carrier string and date/time. I am not trying to take credit for other people's work, I was trying to put out an inclusive patch. I am definitely not trying to take any credit away from Jason, because he has enabled all of us to do so much with our phones.

    Is this in Preware? It looks really good with the date and time in the top bar a different color. Kudos!

    can you post your .patch modified file that you installed via QI? Your modifications to the carrier string worked, but it looks like the color change for the carrier string had an error in the code. If you can show me that code, then I can figure out what went wrong.

    btw, it'd be hard to put into Preware as a patch because it requires modification by the user to make it personal. I would like to make an app that would enable people to install and then change it whenever they wanted. that's on the horizon, hopefully....you can email me your .patch at jmartino2011@gmail.com or post it here.

    Hey ChemEngr, first off, the # in front of the six-digit hex code is necessary. You said previously that you were using the More Blue theme correct? I looked at it on Preware, and the file on preware showed that the carrier string and date/time text was already changed to the color blue. Is this how it is on your phone as well? The way that the patch works is that it compares the file /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-systemui/stylesheets/systemui.css on your phone to the one that is included in the patch. The -color: #fff; line under carrier means it is taking that line out of the file on your phone and replacing it with the text after the plus sign in +color: #0000FF;. This way, it changes from the default color fff (which is white) to 0000FF which is blue. The point of me telling you this is that in order to perform the comparison, Quick Install must be able to find the correct place in the file on your phone. So, your phone file must look like:

    #carrier {
    float: left;
    color: #fff;
    margin-left: 2px;
    white-space: nowrap;
    overflow: hidden;
    }

    If the file on your phone doesn't look like this, then Quick Install won't be able to apply the patch, and you will get an error message saying that the hunk failed at line whatever (btw, the line that your error message said it failed at should correspond approximately to the 90 and 91 in this text from the patch: @@ -90,7 +91,7 @@. Here, the -90,7 means that it is removing line 90 and the patch is showing seven total lines and the +91,7 means it is adding in line 91 for a total of 7 lines still). There are two common ways that the file on your phone won't match the text in the patch, giving an error message: 1) the person writing the patch made a mistake writing the code so that it looks different than the file 2) you have already modified the phone file by applying another patch, e.g. like the one included in the More Blue theme to turn the carrier string and date/time strings blue. Since I know this patch works and others have told me it works, then I assume the second case to be true.

    If you want to keep the text of the carrier string and date/time blue, then you can modify the patch yourself to take out the change color parts and just have the modify carrier string part. To do this, open the patch file with Notepad and delete everything starting with ---.orig/usr/lib/luna/system/luna-systemui/stylesheets/systemui.css. Then, apply the patch using Quick Install to just modify the carrier string.

    If you are interested, the other part of your error message had some interesting information. The first two hunks that succeeded were offset by a certain number of lines. This was shown because when I wrote the patch, I specified to Preware in the .patch file that it should look at lines 480 and 829 for the lines to edit for the carrier string. Since you have the More Blue theme installed which has already modified the bar-assistant.jsjsjs $file$, $there$ $is$ $more$ $code$ $than$ $the$ $original$ $file$. $So$, $that$ $more$ $code$ $has$ $displaced$ $the$ $lines$ $that$ $needed$ $to$ $be$ $modified$, $which$ $is$ $why$ $Quick$ $Install$ $said$ $that$ $the$ $lines$ $were$ $offset$ $from$ $where$ $I$ $said$ $they$ $should$ $be$. $Also$, $the$ $last$ $line$ $said$ $that$ $1$ $of$ $2$ $hunks$ $failed$, $which$ $is$ $why$ $the$ $patch$ $couldn$'$t$ $be$ $applied$. $The$ $line$ $above$ $says$ $that$ $Hunk$ $2$ $failed$ $at$ $line$ $91$. $Therefore$, $we$ $must$ $assume$ $that$ $Hunk$ $1$ $succeeded$. $If$ $you$ $look$ $at$ $the$ $patch$, $Hunk$ $1$ $is$ $the$ $one$ $modifying$ $the$ $date$/$time$ $string$. $Since$ $the$ $patch$ $shows$ $that$ $in$ $that$ $hunk$, $we$ $are$ $just$ $adding$ $a$ $line$, $quick$ $install$ $does$ $not$ $have$ $to$ $find$ $a$ $specific$ $line$ $in$ $order$ $to$ $do$ $apply$ $the$ $patch$. $However$, $in$ $hunk$ $2$, $it$ $has$ $to$ $find$ $the$ $specific$ $line$ $color$: #$fff$; $to$ $remove$ $it$. $That$ $is$ $why$ $hunk$ $1$ $succeeded$ $and$ $hunk$ $2$ $failed$. $If$ $none$ $of$ $this$ $made$ $sense$, $then$ $forget$ $it$. $I$ $am$ $learning$ $as$ $I$ $go$, $and$ $I$ $thought$ $you$ $might$ $like$ $to$ $know$ $what$ $the$ $error$ $message$ $meant$.

    That was a very thorough explanation that I can now apply to the other patches I see having errors. One in paticular is keytoss. I will look at the line the patch is referencing and make the changes. Thanks a lot!

    you are welcome...to be honest, i learned most of it by figuring out how the patch file was created (using Jason's Unified Diff Creator and reading online about patch files).

    I have a favor to ask!

    could you (when you get time) make a patch for me to make the font bigger in these locations?

    in systemui.css

    font size 21

    .status-bar
    .clock
    .appname-wrapper
    .carrier-wrapper


    If you cant I understand!

    BTW I am using a patch I made using theme builder to change carrier string and font color then extracted the .patch and installed via WebOsQuickInstaller.

    I asked Jason but I know he is very busy also.

    I meant no offence by my earlier post... was just asking!

    hey 2sslow, first off, no offense taken...I don't want anyone to think i am copying anyone else's work, though Jason's work has been integral to me even learning how to do anything. It's all good...

    second, here is your patch...I like the way this looks! Mind if I submit this to Preware as a patch for others who want to be able to see their clocks more easily? I will give you credit for the idea! Let me know...

    here's the patch thread...http://forums.precentral.net/webos-p...font-size.html

    Hey is there any way to add the ability to add the popup alert change color as well. I have changed my Charge, usb menu to blue but I would love to be able to do it with a patch. That is the last thing I have hard coded. I tried it but when I did it I tried them both on one patch and when I installed it. Somehow it didn't show I had any patches although I had them all, So I was a little scared to mess with it anymore.

    @2slow I have used lots of your work. I learned how to do patches by going to http://forums.precentral.net/canuck-...f-creator.html

    Trust I learned by trial and error, very easy to do.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I probably should try my hand at patching...I wasn't going to attempt rooting at first, but back then there was no other way to do any tweaking w/out it so I did it...It was pretty easy after plenty of reading.

    Great job! I really like the bigger fonts on the top bar. It applied even with the MoreBlue theme on. Now if you can make a 'change the color' patch it would be perfect. I attached a screenshot for people to see. I'm sorry if it's nitpicky but is it possible to make the battery % numbers be in line with the other texts? Then it would look polished. Thanks all for your hard work. Loving the board!
