    I have been looking for hours, and i do mean hours for this...

    I have the latest Cydia and WinterBoard for the past day, and I also got Weather Icon and Katra-based Weather Icon -- which gives me half of what I want:
    Weather and Weather icon in the StatusBar.

    I also want to add Date to the StatusBar.
    I have looked and looked at the code of the existing Themes that came from Cydia (via ssh on my iPhone 3G)... I tried finding the code for WeatherIcon but it's not a "normal Theme" so it doesn't behave the same, I looked at /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/WeatherIconSettings.bundle/Weather\ Icon.plist

    but that seems to be the file that shows the options in the Settings, not the place that actually modifies the StatusBar.

    I am looking for a simple thing I believe, just adding DATE to the Status Bar, just after the Time there (i don't want to replace anything, just add).
    ===============I have================
    I would like the Statusbar to show "4:35 PM 04/20" or even better "4:35P, Apr 20", and have that string be centered. And changing the color (of the date only) would be awesome .
    ==========iPhone 3G, Cydia, WinterBoard==========
    Thanks a lot, this is important to me... since it's so cool :-)
    I am comfortable with SSH access on my iPhone, as i am usin for a quick/simple solution as opposed to installing Themes/Apps which have features i don't need.

    This is my first post, barely over 12hours since my first ever Jailbreak on iPhone 3G.... it was a scary step but so far it's grrrrrrrrreat :-).

    "Find a theme and modify it" advice I have seen before and I tried that, but like i said I have been looking for hours and I don't want to get a Theme and remove its functionality by 90% only to include my 1 line, and have the files and system load possibly when all I wanted to do is add a simple thing :-(.

    thanks cpjr, I have seen that post before, looked through it again now carefully, but my question remains, because that post refers to using a Wallpaper.html with
    // Compose the string for display
    var currentTimeString = this_date_string + " " + this_date + " " + " " + this_month_string + " " + " " + " " + currentHours + ":" + currentMinutes + timeOfDay;

    which does the job, but is what i am trying to avoid, a more complex application i don't need -- it's changing the wallpaper, and using HTML file too

    isn't there a simpler way? does it have to be HTML page that i create just to handle the statusbar? and isn't this overlaying the system display?

    The long road around, yeah.

    But its the only way Ive seen...and Im pretty sure its the only working way out.

    Well this file (in the Theme):
    /private/var/stash/Themes.yqwVSI/Katra Weather Icon.theme/Bundles/com.apple.springboard/com.ashman.WeatherIcon.plist

    along with "WeatherIcon 2.0.3 Package" with "ModMyi.com" the sponsor, that is a way of adding to the StatusBar, without overlaying it with HTML+background.

    "WeatherIcon 2.0.3 Package" alone is able to put the Temperature on the StatusBar and the Katra Theme allows showing of icons [maybe just the icons are used by WeatherIcon, so Katra is just a source of icons, not actually displaying]

    so there has to be a way to add to the WeatherIcon package via SSH... but since it's not a Theme, I haven't seen directions for doing, nor did i find the right spot myself.

    Is there a WeatherIcon specific area on ModMyI to ask this?
    -- to add Date to the Temperature already shown on StatusBar
