    I have a bit of a question concerning the notification area icons...
    when moving to build 6801.... i didnt see any particular changes to these...( power, volume, wifi etc)
    now having moved up to build 7000. all the icons are white and basic versions of there previously coloured counterparts, and whilst they are interactive ( i.e battery shows level of charge, its difficult to see properly when its just white)

    this is slightly irritating, but nothing too serious, but I was wondering if I am the only one this has happened to, and more to the point, is there a way to set these back to the previous icons.

    aside from that, I am impressed with 7 overall..

    thanks in advance for any help you can give...

    Agreed i have seen the same thing and it does get annoying when an icon is white.

    its something to do with the way the new drivers have integrated the icons into the shell icon cache...
    there are ways of changing the cache, which i am still exploring .. more info when I get something working.
