    [MOD][HOW TO] Transparent notification bar/pulldown shade

    In this thread ill show you how to make that notification bar transparent.

    1. take the png's ive attached to this post and place them on your SD card in the folder entitled "android themes"
    take note of these file names.

    2.open ninjamorph select new project

    navigate through: system/framework/framework-res.apk. it will then extract all the files.

    then navigate through res/drawable-hdpi.

    scroll down to "status_bar_background.png" click it and change it out with the "status_bar_background.png" you placed on your SD card that has the exact same file name....then continue to replace the other 6 png's the same way.

    If one of the existing png's in your framework does not match the one Ive provided (for example the existing file on your phone ends in " .9 " ) then rename it to match...not all themes are exactly the same.


    3. when your done replacing all 7 png's press the blue back button in ninjamorph, select finish project, select the one that says "framework-resapk"

    then just keep clicking "yes" ("yes/yes/ok/yes") then ninjamorph will tell you "ALL DONE!" and your phone will automatically reboot.

    this will work fine with "launcher 2" and will most likley work with whatever default launcher that came with whatever ROM you mught be using. BUT...

    ...!!! when using this mod with ADW launcher, launcher pro
    or any home replacement app you will need to use a live wallpaper (I use "shake em all" and then just set my own wallpaper) if you want the notification bar to stay transparent. the pulldown will allways be transparent though. (you can also use a live wallpaper called "multiple wallpapers" )

    Thanks for the instructions, but I seem to be having an issue. My notification window is not transparent. The main windows is all I wanted to be transparent so I followed the instructions and replaced status_bar_background.png with one that is transparent but it shows up as black. I clue what I might be doing wrong, I'm new to this so I'm not sure.

    Will these pngs work on a Droid 2? or should I resize them in photoshop?
