    I have done it on quite a few of the CM7 nightlies. I just flashed CM7 #42, and I haven't themed it yet completely, but I threw one of my custom backgrounds (with transparency) that I have as part of one of my themes just to show that it is indeed possible.

    The way I have been doing my themeing is pulling the framework-res and systemui files, modifying them, then pushing them back to where they belong. I also theme a few other files, in my process.

    I think Liquid is the only ROM I have heard that there are issues with themeing it, at least that I know of. I read that they use an xml color code rather than the picture, but I haven't dissected that ROM to verify that. I haven't been able to try any of the other GB builds, just been sticking with the CM nightlies (missing a night from time to time). But I don't see why there would be a problem unless they messed something up accidentally.

    Yeah that could be it, I haven't had a chance to try BB's yet. I know theming BB apparently was an issue with his normal ROMs. Maybe it is still the same way. I did try Liquid in it's preview state, but I haven't gotten back around to it yet.

    Haha I completely forgot about the themechanger app.

    Glad you got it working though.

    Cupfull is right, LGB points to a #cc color code instead of shade_bg.png so it's impossible to theme that since SystemUI errors on decompiling... I made a fix for it but since I don't run LGB, I can't test it... but I'm sure they'll fix it themselves on the next update...
