    Lol, yeah, just about. The flashable zip is no problem. The murky part to me is the "0% opacity". Do you want the soft keys transparent?

    Yes, sir. So the keys are like stock, and still modifyable (is that a word?) But one can have brighter keys. Sticking a potentiometer in there might be kinda tricky, maybe. If it isn't tricky, it would be nice to adjust the brightness of the soft keys.

    I don't know if that clarified anything or not. Lol.

    Like how you adjust the screen brightness, I'm with you now. That would be something. I don't have any ideas on how to make them adjustable. It would be nice if you could make them independent of the screen brightness.

    I found some transparency mods for AOSP and AOKP ROM's. But the ones I found at rootzwiki only had 20%. And having ran AOKP and the Milestone ROM's 20% wasn't enough. So I moved mine to around 80% - 90% and that was perfect for me if it helps narrow things down. Hell, if adjusting indipendantly is tricky, I think this will work.

    I'll even buy the beer. :-D

    Link me what you used to adjust them, or pm it to me. If there's some way to integrate it with a "slider-like" selector, it should be possible. It would be sweet if we could swipe across the soft keys to brighten & dim them. Having what you used should help narrow it down.

    Here are a couple links for the AOKP ROM. With me not being a coder or even having any idea how things are written, I don't know how they incorperated it - framework, or SystemUI, etc. I do know, however that to find the mods for the nav buttons or soft keys, you go to settings/ROM Control/ Nav Button Mods or "Nav 'something.'" But hopefully having this link, you can narrow it down and hopefully it's easy detective work. And if it helps any, I mainly used the Milestone AOKP (seems to be more stable. And Milestone 3 is the latest that I know of. (Second link below.))

    is there a trick to doing the lights-out images? i swapped out the others just fine and made them blue, but when i opened up the lights-out images i can't see anything on the screen to change...i'm using gimp, if that matters. it's like the opacity is too low for me to see the image...doing a magic wand on the outside somewhere shows me the circle where the dot is, but i still can't see anything there even then...

    I can't see them either. When I make them, I just put the new ones in the center

    alright. one other question quick (i read over the thread and didn't see anything about it, my bad if i missed it)...i changed my keys to blue like i said, but in sunlight they're much tougher to see than the white ones were. is there a way to brighten them up a bit? i remember seeing a discussion about the white ones getting made brighter, but i didn't see anything that described how to do it...
