I got it changed to blue and reverted to ASUS optimized but I got an email asking me to "Accept as Solution" one of the replies I received. I thought I'd verify the steps and tried it all, again. I can get it to change colors but it reverts to part blue and part violet if I change the color then go back to ASUS optimized so I'm leaving it on stock Android for now. I should have left it alone. I think I generally like ASUS android style but not that one color, oh well... . Thanks guys for your time.
