http://stackoverflow.com – Steps to reproduce - this happens on Android 4.2.2 - I did not see it happen on Android 4.2.1 Answer a few questions, exit app Come back into app select a question set - it's holo_LIGHT_blue goto another Activity (e.g. Info Screen) and come back select a question set - it's holo_DARK_blue NOTE: I am not not modifying android:list_selector, I am using default Android. Do you think something is being cached by the system? <ListView android:id="@+id/landing_lv" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:cacheColorHint="@android:colo (HowTos)
