    Ok, I successfully themed all but 4 or 5 images in SystemUI.apk. BUT, I have two images that I can't find and they may be in framework. I included a screenshot if anybody can help... it is the main pulldown bg, gray in the pic and the "ongoing" bg....

    Hey brother, the pulldown background is the shade_bg.png in your SystemUi/res/drawable-hdpi.

    "shade_bg.png", and "shade_header_background.9.png", respectively, and they're both in SystemUI.

    Title bar portrait is now used for the "verizon wireless" bg. I changed shade bg and it didn't work. I have heard that those are sometimes controlled with a hex value in framework, I am going to be looking at that tonight...

    Yes I'm on LiquidGingerBread 1.2 and I have been going CRAZY! trying to figure out how to change the background shade_bg.png! I've changed it through many programs and different methods with no success. Everything else has changed but the shade_bg.png so I am super interested in the hex value thing your talking about. If anyone can help me please PM me! Thank you guys in advance.

    I am not 100% sure yet, but I believe there is a hex value for it and the "notifications" background in the colors.xml in framework.... I am going to be looking at that tonight after work....

    thank you and if I knew anything about hex editing I'd help but that's a tad over my head. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you though. does the UltimateDroid's GB ROM have any issues with the notification bar background not sticking? or ProjectElite's?

    Hey guys. I've been hardcore theming Gingerbread the past week or two and have learned alot. The pull down screen does support transparency. I replaced the shade_bg with my own 480 x 854 image with no issues. There is also an XML that invokes the color as well. It's located in res / Values / drawables xml. I changed it, but I don't think it makes any difference if you change the original png. I could be wrong about that though. Edit: I just remembered that I also changed the status_bar_background.png in framework-res.apk res / drawable-hdpi to the same image, so not 100% sure which one is more significant. So, if one doesn't work, just do both. :) Anyway, it's almost finished, but I want to change the title portrait still as it's quite a bit larger than I wanted, but here's a quick screenshot:

    UD3 accepts notification background changes, no problem.

    Poppin' in a little late on this but LGB points to #cc00000 in res/layout/status_bar_tracking.xml and other ROMS point to the shade_bg instead.. that's why lgb doesn't change the pulldown and other roms might do this also.. UD and CM7 are fine and I think jimmydene said ss is good also.. I took the status_bar_tracking.xml from UD and tossed it in the lgb SystemUI.apk for a quick fix but I never found anyone to test it... so if lgb is still havin issues with the pulldown applying, let me know and we can test the fix....

    On a side note, since most roms don't have the UI tweaks to change text color on GB, I went ahead and changed them myself.. clock and date are affected by bright_foreground_dark # in values/colors.xml and the text color on the notification tabs inside the pulldown is in res/value/styles

    <style name="TextAppearance.StatusBar.Title" parent="@style/TextAppearance.StatusBar">
    <item name="textStyle">bold</item>
    </style>
    <style name="TextAppearance.StatusBar.Icon" parent="@style/TextAppearance.StatusBar">
    <item name="textStyle">bold</item>
    </style>
    <style name="TextAppearance.StatusBar.EventContent" parent="@style/TextAppearance.StatusBar">
    <item name="textColor">#2e9afe</item>
    </style>
    <style name="TextAppearance.StatusBar.EventContent.Title" parent="@style/TextAppearance.StatusBar.EventContent">
    <item name="textSize">16.0sp</item>
    <item name="textStyle">bold</item>
    <item name="textColor">#100af1</item>

    The top highlight is just another color code for light gray and the bottom one points to ?colorPrimaryInverse I think.. just change that to how I did.. and the tab itself is a .9.png in framework, status_bar_item_background_normal and no normal I think.. now ya don't need to keep the white tabs.... Sorry if this wasn't a great 'find' and you already knew of it... lol. But for me it was great cause normally the user can change all this themselves within the ROM...


    Edit: yep, looks like es0 already knew this... lol

    SO just so i'm clear, I only need to add my dropdown as shade_bg? Don't even need to touch status_bar_background.png?
