love the change but my battery is pink ? Why pink? anyway to change the battery color or any other colors without jailbreaking?

Why pink? Well, survey says pink has a calming effect in jail. (Our Sheriff Joe A. makes all inmates wear pink underwear). So I guess the pink battery is supposed to deter would-be-jailbreakers. Get it? pink/jail/jailbreaking... Sorry, that joke needs some work.:)

All that does is invert the colors. Its supposed to provide higher contrast to people who can see very well, if I'm not mistaken. Pink is the opposite of green, so that's why it turns pink.

I think some people with severe colorblindness need the extreme contrast to distinguish the different objects. That's why it's an accessibility option, and not a background preference.

It is also for using the phone in bright sunlight. This is a feature exclusive to the 3GS I believe. Wish we could change the colors of all the parts of the device (black background, grey bar), text on top) whatever colors we wanted. That would be a REALLY EASY thing to do and a lot of people would like it.
