    I had a question, maybe this is more of a request, but would it be possible to easily change it to a black notification bar with a blue battery fill color?

    I saw it on a GDE Enoch Theme, and I really find it attractive. To be honest, that is the only reason I want to root my phone just to change it to that color.

    The battery fill images are there too so are many other buttons and status display images... I'd assume they can be edited as the status bar was.

    So you can replace the notification bar png with a transparent one? The major reason I use home++ is how fantastic a droid screen looks without that big white bar taking up space from its wallpaper. Transparent one with floating text may be a good hybrid, and and I can use GDE (cube + not crashing on pure widgets)?

    Ok so I went through the BusyBox instructions but how do you know if its on there or not? Also when I rename the .zip file to .apk it still adds .zip at the end.

    Go into Folder Options and turn off "add extension to known file types" or whatever. I'm on a mac right now so I can't tell you the exact wording. I think its in the "tools" menu when your inside any folder in My Computer.

    Thanks that worked. Think I may have figured out the BusyBox.

    Busybox working for Droid Explorer on PC - Android Forums

    The instructions: (Thanks to BiggiePhat at AndroidForums)
    tep 1) download busybox binary to your adb tools directory

    Step 2) cd to your adb tools directory

    Step 3) adb push busybox /data/local/busybox

    Step 4) adb shell

    Step 5) cd /data/local

    Step 6) chmod 755 busybox

    Step 7) ./busybox

    (just to test to make sure its there)

    now to have this run so droid explorer and detect your phone and so you can use busybox (ie so its in your PATH) run this.

    Step 8) mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

    Step 9) /data/local/busybox cp /data/local/busybox /system/bin

    Step 10) mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

    Step 11) sync

    Step 12) reboot

    Download Links:

    Droid Explorer: Droid Explorer

    busybox: Download busybox.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way
    Link for BusyBox: Download busybox.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way
    instructions are spot on. worked as expected.

    note: after reboot and signing back into the market place, I notice that I can't install any apps... just says "dowloading........" and nothing. If I stop and restart the download/install, still nothing. I tried this over wifi (which worked prior to change), and also without wifi.

    Hope it will work after another reboot. If not, I'll just undo the changes (good thing I backed up my framework-res.apk (I copied the whole /system/framework dir to my /sdcard =)

    Teenfaces I was just curious how you went about signing that apk, Is it the same way one would sign an apk in android 1.5? Or is there a new method?
