Ok, so I previously posted about the transparency background being only solid on Froyo 2.2, and that Xuedoxus is the only one that seems to know how to alter Froyo to give us the "smoked glass" background in the notification pull down... (there is apparently a XML file that holds the key to this but only X has figured this out...)
I know that Pete has more pressing issues that come before cosmetics, but I for one would LOVE if he put a fix to this before anyone else because I for one LOVE his work and have had ZERO issues for V.2.1...
If you want Pete to implement this in his next fix give this thread some +1's to show him your interest! Or if you have figured this out, POST!!
To those of you that are skeptical, pull your framework-res, replace the status_bar_background.png with a transparent.png and push back... it will be solid! I promise!
