You havn't set LightTheme to your application.
Change this
B4X:
SetApplicationAttribute(android:theme, "@android:style/Theme.Material.Light")
To this
B4X:
SetApplicationAttribute(android:theme, "@style/LightTheme")

I need a little more help, How can I change the phone bar to the same color as my action bar? Also, the menu items is not readable because it's white.

Ok ok. But I think is related to the original question, since the lighttheme by default makes the bar skyblue or something
