How you can change keyboard colors in Prime Android Emu
for those of you, having also problems with the orange letter colors on the Prime Android App:

By accident I came across the free Android 'APK Editor' App. After installation:
  1. select 'APK from App' or 'File' and choose your HP Prime APK.
  2. Select 'Simple Edit',
  3. change in group 'Files' to 'res' subdir 'drawable-nodpi-v4'.
  4. Select the edit button near to eg. 'portrait_skin.png'.
  5. Select the file you want to replace the original file with. Same dimension and size required.
  6. Press 'Save'.

After several minutes, the modified APK is saved to your Phone and is waiting to replace the standard HP Prime installation.
For editing the PNG on the Android, I used the also free 'Photo Editor 5.1'. My PNG files
.zip  portrait_bg_and_skin.zip (Size: 943.21 KB / Downloads: 6) for the following result
    with Emu 2.1.14294 (2019 10 25) on Android 7.1.

if you could find a solution for physical HP, I'd be grateful for it for life.

Careful painting then clear layer on top

Or perhaps labels.

Both Prime color schemes

You could do the painting yourself - if you just could...

Modify the .STL file before submitting it to your Star Trek replicator?

Who decides?

You could use a cnc machine to do 3D engraving on the keys directly!
Then use some other plastic to do the inlays and you are good to go!

Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.
