    Is there any way possible to skin the actual radar so that it is transparent?

    I am talking about the widget radar that stays on your screen. Not the radar that you pull up in the menu to " Loop " and look at the forecast.

    I can try it myself if someone can point me in the correct direction.

    Thanks.....

    send it to me

    If you can send it or tell me the exact name I'll d/l it from market and try to make it transparent, no guarrenty I can get it, since I've had trouble with facebook and pandora trying it but I was able to do it on a few other's


    seems to be a paid app and I dont have or use it :(

    here's what I been doing for most I put the apk on my pc's hard drive then I use 7zip to open archive, then I look for the file maked bg or background and I open it in gimp, I know many will say use photoshop but im not very good with it.

    In gimp when I load the background I just use the easer tool to erase the color they had there and that will turn it transparent, for most widgets as I seen not all.
    worth a try it only takes a few seconds.
    once you erase the color from the background just hit save and closeout gimp it will ask again are you sure you want to save changes say yes then push the file back on my phone to system/app then set permissions and reboot. If all went well should work the way you want.

    I use root explorer to remove from phone and put back myself.
    most likely its in data/app now but after you edit you'll want to put it in system/app

    make sure to set permissions as so

    then reboot :)

    Im going to grab a bite to eat but i'll be back shortly let me know how it turns out.

    Otherwise we'll have to find someone else with it to help out. If I used it i'd purchase it to try it for you.
