    Pardon my ignorance, but what exactly do you want to do?

    The opacity effect in 2.2 is not the same as all previous versions... The notification pulldown background "status_bar_background" only shows up solid in all 2.2 ROMS so far... we can only assume its an XML edit... and i've only seen xuedoxus have success with transparency so far...

    even if you create a .png in photoshop as transparent, it will show up solid when you push the framework-res...

    Ahh, I see now - never noticed. A challenge! I'll post back when I figure out the edit (I'm running my own custom framework-res.apk and services.jar - it's probably in services.jar).

    awesome good luck! And although it sounds like i may have working knowledge of things like this, I don't. HA!! so if you DO happen to figure out the fix for 2.2, I am no XML whiz,

    ... so basically what i'm asking... is newb instructions would be fantastic!

    i do have HxD and hex editing tools, so i'm that far... just have no clue how to use them!

    It's in framework-res.apk, and it's just an update to that png file, unless something changed radically with 2.2

    You should be able to apply a metamorph theme without any issues.

    EDIT: The previous statement is an outright fabrication...

    Cool CM Tricks
    custom_backup_list.txt - make a list of files in /system that will survive a nightly install (ringtones, notifications, system apps, wallpapers, whatever)
    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)

    Nope. something HAS changed radically cause i've created a .png with ZERO opactiy and replaced the status_bar_background.png in my framework, pushed it back and it was solid.
