I want to change the color of the status bar in my app to purple, but after splash screen, it changes back to the default color. So when the app finishes loading and I get the loading screen I have a different color from what I want. I used <preference name="StatusBarBackgroundColor" value="#8A2BE2" /> in confix.xml.
Do you have the mobile feautures widget in your project? This overwrites settings in your phonegap config. Best is to set the color of the statusbar in this widget.
For the splashscreen your config settings work because the mobile features widget is not loaded yet at that point.
The widget was overwriting phonegap config, it works now, tnx.
