    Textured Notification Bar, Semi transparent Not. background, Textured Close bar

    Note: For rooted ver. 2.0.1! Not tested on 2.1.

    I have just finished my textured Notification Bar, textured, rolled Close Bar with textured shade, and semi transparent rolled Notification backgrounds.

    Worked for a long time on these, so I hope you like'em. They are unlike any others I've seen so far for the Droid.

    Oh..... and believe me, looks much better on the Droid than the pic dicates. :P


    As always: Use at your own risk. However, I fully tested on my Droid running 2.0.1

    Place on root dir. of sdcard and use adb to install.
    Rename to "framework-res.apk" (Just remove .zip from the end)

    Commands using adb:
    adb shell
    su
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    busybox cp -R /sdcard/framework-res.apk /system/framework
    reboot


    Do not forget to "unmount" the sdcard after placing the file in the root dir. of the card.


    Feedback welcome

    Nice addition, if you could somehow turn this into a metamorph installable theme (yes I know its only the framework-res file, but that would be great!!!)

    Thanks much.

    I may try making a morph soon, but would like to gauge interest first.

    In the mean time I'm adding a slightly different version. Works well if you like darker (possibly stone/rock) type themes.

    You can copy that framework-res into any metamorph theme on your phone and install it using the theme file through metamorph, if you want. Easiest way to do it.

    And here is a more conventional one for those that may like it better.

    Was trying to work on the close bar but just couldn't get exactly what I wanted. My skillz aren't up in Gimp yet...

    Borrowed the close bar from teenfaces (hope you don't mind?) until I can craft my own. So credit goes to teen for the bottom bar (cept for my little mod to it).
