Well, the two bars probably are use the same image, scaled to a smaller size...

AFAIK There is no way to change the colour without using a substrate.

Can you explain it better?

Well, the colour of the text is hard-coded into the app...
MobileSubstrates hook into certain parts of apps and override the origina code, however... Running a MobileSubstrate is like always running an app in the background... Some good examples are Winterboard, and SBSettings... They will lage your iDevice.

Running small MobileSubstrates doesn't lag the iDevice that much, but it adds up. On top of that, MobileSubstrates aren't  easy to code.

A few MobileSubstrates you may be familiar with, include Whited00r Multitasking, and Whited00r Folders.

Um.. hi...
I have made a theme for iOS4 to look like iOS6 as well..
May I ask you, how did you get iPod/Music to be silver?
I've looked everywhere  but I can't locate the files for the NavigationBar and ButtonBar?
Help is appreciated! and nice work! You can check my theme at... http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=6193.0
Oh yes. Hi.
I see you've noticed this Signature. Well, all I can tell you is that there's nothing to see here.
Yes, there is nothing interesting here. Just keep scrolling and we'll pretend nothing happened.

I did not find those files too but if you use winterboard and put "UINavigationBarDefaultBackground.png", "UIButtonBarBlackOpaqueBackground.png", "UIButtonBarBlackOpaqueBackgroundTall.png" in UIImages folder you can change navigationbar and button bar.
The problem is that this change the style of every app and it is not easy to read the title of navigation bar since you cannot change text color.

Again, the navigation bar color is hard-coded into the app. There is no way to change it, except with mobilesubstrate.

I can change it with winterboard as you can see in the screenshots above even if it is hardcoded.

Winterboard is a Substrate. Which is why it slows down iDevices... However, this is a Winterboard theme, so it doesn't really matter.

what if we made it all black! so that other apps, such as iTunes Store and App store would look much greater

It would be great if you could find a way to edit the gui of specific apps

How did you get the tab bar white, just for the music app?

It is not for the music app only but for every app and this is a problem.
