    I'm trying to port the 928Droid Black Glass X theme to the new OTA 2.3.340 update. I deodexed the phone and have a bit of the files done.

    Framework-res.apk
    Services.jar
    Settings.apk
    BlurHome.apk
    BlurPhone.apk
    Calculator.apk
    CarDock.apk
    DownloadProvider.apk
    LatinIME.apk
    Music.apk
    PhotoWidget.apk
    Settings.apk
    ToggleWidgets.apk

    Here's my dilemna. I've done some research on trying to get the background of the drop down notification bar transparent without any luck. The PNG file is mostly transparent, but when I do the drop down, it's completly black with the exception of the Droid logo and text. It's the image created by 928Droid... but with a black background.

    Any ideas?

    Before anyone asks.... I'm not publishing this "Theme". This is 928Droid's theme that I'm porting to the update for my own use. If 928Droid want's me to send it to him.... that's up to him. He's busy enough.

    Actually, does it look bad solid black? Could be cool like that if the Droid image and lettering is still detailed. Just an idea since I don't have any others:)

    i believe its because your status bar background is black. lets see if i can explain this. attached is something ive been working on for myself.

    first attached is a screen shot of how it looks and second is my background image.

    you should understand from the two images on how you can achieve this look. if not ill try to be more detailed on what i did

    Thanks for the reply. My thoughts... 928Droid's original Black Glass X worked with the transparency. The images I'm using for everything are the exact ones without modifiation he is using. I would think that if it was related to the images, it should work perfectly. I'm thinking more along the lines of a services.jar or framework-res.apk edit somewhere. I haven't found an XML with any clues yet.

    Dang! Is there anything you can't do AD? Other than not figure out why the shade is solid;)

    Like I've said before. Unless a Moderator or 928Droid says it's ok, I don't want to post his work. Granted, I took the time to port it over to 2.3.340 for my personal use, but all of the images and design were created by 928Droid. If I'm told to go ahead and post the updated theme, then I will. I haven't been on in a while due to school, but will monitor this for any updates from 928Droid. I'm hoping that he is doing better.
