Default [TUTORIAL] How to change colour of phone number in the Telephone application

Hello, guys. I guess, every single owner of Samsung i8910 knows that the font color of the phone number being typed in dialer application is always black. This is a huge problem when it comes to themes with black backgrounds cause digits cannot be seen. This happens with all 3rd party themes "thanks" to strange customization of Telephone application UI. The same thing happens with Radio where frequency of the station you are listening is always black and hard to see on themes with dark background as well.

Now this problem can be solved, the only thing needed is SISContents, which can add missing colours for those skin elements. This tutorial will explain how to do so. All modification are being made in the sis package of a theme, so no unpacking and re-packaging is needed.

OK, now step-by-step guide:
- Open sis package of a theme in SISContents, then press Tools->Edit package in the main menu of application.
- Switch to Contents tab, select a file with skn extension (themepackage.skn usually) in the list and press View details.
- In the appeared windows switch to Colours tab.
- Press Add colour groups (screenshot 1).
- Check Samsung text colours in the list on the left part of the window (screenshot 2). To change default values of each colour double click on it in the list.
- When done press OK to close window, the colours will be added to the colour table of the skin.
- If your firmware requires sis packages to be signed before installation press Tools->Sign package in the main menu of SISContents, select SISContents self-signed certificate as a signing profile and click on Add signature.
- Save package and install it on device.

Yes, since version 1.5.7 SISContents is available to modify the whole color table of the skins. This means that any color of the theme can be changed.

What do you mean talking about "main font"? A lot of different UI elements have their own font colours. Upload here a screenshot of the element you would like to changer a font colour for.

Do you mean search for contact in the phone book? I don't have this issue in I8910XEII1/I8910SERII2. If not, post here a screenshot of the window where the problem takes place.
