    Wasn't this doable in 4.6? The blue doesn't match my cutomisation everywhere else on the phone. I want to either make slightly transparent, or change to a black or dark gray background..

    Possible?

    I can't remember if it was doable in 4.6, but I'd love to be able to change the color of the bar as well.

    Worst case, I'm assuming since Chevy posts the files for themers, one of those could probably be modified to only change the bar, but I'd have to do some research on what to do.

    Now that I think of it maybe it wasnt, maybe it was just gray by default.

    I'd like to see the return of the semi-transparent black bar from previous releases.

    I kind of doubt it would be changeable on the fly as it's a PNG file that needs to be edited, not just an XML value.

    LOL - I had so many people beg to get the solid bar back ... now that I bring it back, I have just as many asking for transparent!

    This was not possible in any of my ROM's ... I am looking into it for the future however, just not sure how attainable it will be

    Agreed. Just get the image you want, add it into the framework-res.apk file with the same file name as the image you want to replace, and push this to the phone. Very, very simple.

    tparker76 just helped me do EXACTLY what this thread is about. Trust me when I say I have zero theming skills, but he walked me through it step by step and I am now rocking the transparent black bar which looks great with the screen set up I have. It's the little things in life that make me happy, and being able to set up my phone the way I want it to be is one of those things.
