    Ive noticed on lighter backgrounds you cant see the battery percentage or time but on the stock white wallpaper it turns the text black...is there anywhere to do this in the settings or do you just have to get the background light enough it does it on its own?

    I have some light backgrounds too, but it seems to do a pretty good job of adding enough of a shadow under those menu bar items so that I can see battery status, time, etc..

    If it's not doing the same for you, my suggestion would be to go to the photos app, find the photo you want to use, and apply one of the built in filters, there are several that will make the photo slightly darker (granted, they'll change the overall color somewhat, but maybe you'll be ok with that).

    I'd give that a try, otherwise, might be out of luck :(
