    This was driving me nuts! After finding this post I figured it could be done...
    But everything I tried resulted in just the default colour being applied, at least that's what I thought was happening. The colour values I was using were taken from the Material guidelines website.
    After some serious head scratching and self-doubt, I've worked out what is wrong!
    @Erel example should have be written as...
    Activity.Color = 0xFFE4E4E2
    Where FF is the alpha value required, either fully opaque (FF) or fully transparent (00). This might seem obvious to most of you but I gave up on it late last night and it's only with a fresh set of eyes that I've realised what I was doing wrong. Hope it helps others having similar trouble.
