    Here is my Calendar App currently looks like:


    But I would like to change the color of the date from black to white and a different font would be nice. I know there is a way to do it using winterboard or springtomize, but I would like to do so without it if possible. I'm not sure if this has already been addressed, but does anyone have a solution for this?

    I haven't actually done it without Winterboard, so take my advice with a grain of salt and back up any files you're going to edit before you do in case I'm wrong.

    The Info.plist file for the calendar app is located at /var/stash/Applications/MobileCal. The keys that you use in a Winterboard theme to modify the icon are as follows:

    <string>css styles for the day of the week</string>

    <string>css styles for the number</string>

    I don't know if this works or not, but whichever one you need (or both if you want to modify both) before the end of the plist file (before the </dict> tag). Let me know if this breaks your device, or if you need help with css styles.

    EDIT: Did a bit of reading and saw a few people saying it's not possible without Winterboard, so I'm reaffirming that I am not liable if your phone bricks :p
