How can I change the system default light blue color? I'd like to make it some sort of green. I'm talking about the light blue in such icons in the attached screen shots as the battery icon, the keyboard words, and the bottom bar when pulling down the notification tray. I assume it's just one setting somewhere because it's all the same blue. I am using Nova Launcher and would prefer not to root but might if necessary

So, I've got the latest CyanogenMod 10.1 installed on my Galaxy Nexus (toro). How can I change the default light blue accent color to, say, red? Is there a theme out there that does only that? If not, is there a step-by-step guide to creating a theme for CM 10.1 so I can do it myself?

Thanks in advance! :p

Yes, there is probably a theme like that, and yes, you can find a step by step guide to creating your own theme.

I'd have to spend some time on google to point you in the right direction; I'd suggest starting there to see what you can find ;)

The default color on the home screen and app drawer can be changed with a launcher such as Nova Launcher (see images below), but as others have said, changing it across the whole system requires root.
