    Help with transparancy for 2.2 (smoked glass)

    Hi everyone,

    I have always liked AdamZs basic smoked glass theme so I have been trying to make an update.zip for 2.2 that changes the status bar to smoked glass.

    I basically have it working with the exception of transparency and font color when you pull down the status bar

    Can anyone tell me how I change the text colors? I am not familiar with editing the binary xml files or services.jar at the moment but I would like to learn


    Here is my current update.zip

    any help on finishing this would be great

    - Images Used: Smoked glass 1.03 (no blue) by AdamZ. A few icon files from petes version of the smoked glass theme.
    - services.jar and modifed framework-res.apk xml files from Team CHAOS Clean black froyov1.1 theme

    Same issue here too... even in Music.apk. Seems to be different in 2.2. I am also unable to change the "Verizon Wireless" text like I could in 2.1. Any tips?

    The xml file is framework-res.apk/res/layout/status_bar_latest_content_expanded. Grab HxD and open that file. Do a hex string search of 08 00 00 1C. Change the value from 00 00 00 FF to FF FF FF FF. Save the file and add to the update.zip.

    Thanks for the tip. It didn't end up being status_bar_latest_content_expanded.xml (it didn't exist) but i tried doing what you told me with status_bar_latest_event_content.xml and it seems to have worked

    here is the updated update.zip
    http://www.techidiots.net/android/smoked-glass-android-2.2/glass_update2.zip


    Now all I have left that i want is to make the dropdown list transparent

    Are you sure you have the right background image? The transparency should be a standard image or a .9 image (not sure which one). I don't believe the transparency value is controlled somewhere in an xml.

    I can provide an entire set of images for the framework.apk that should work....if you need.

    I made an update.zip for smoked glass already and if you want to change the text colors and clock colors follow this link

    [Guide] Change notification/clock/pull down text colors - Android Forums

    Im throwing a white round clock with percentage into the smoked glass also. Well i did that for the last froyo build now I'm redoing it for this build. I also want to do a few other tweaks.
    These are the shots from last build. I wanted to have blue going on and decided to switch but forgot to pull my blue droid out of pull down bar lol

    transparent

    I still cant figure out how to make my dropdown transparent. I used my celtics pulldown from 2.1, it loads perfectly and works fine, only its no longer transparent on 2.2.
