    So I've seen and gotten a lot of requests for transparent widgets recently so I thought I would compile them all into one bundle and one thread. I'll also be taking requests and updating this as I add more.

    Currently Modified (default apps):

    Power Control Widget
    GenieWidget (I've included the images for both versions so it should work on all ROMs)
    Music Widget
    YouTube
    Facebook
    Notification bar - only modifies notification bar background. None of the icons or background images in the pulldown are changed. This can easily be applied over any other theme as it only modifies the one file.

    Market Apps modified:

    MiniInfo - original apk name is 'com.dynotes.miniinfo.apk' rename to miniinfo.apk in /system/app/
    SetCPU - original apk name is 'com.mhuang.overclocking.apk' rename to setcpu.apk in /system/app/
    Buzz - original apk name is 'com.google.android.apps.updates.widget.apk' rename to buzz.apk in /system/app/

    Instructions for market apps (above):

    Using adb or root explorer make system r/w
    go to /data/app/ and look for the app you are going to be modifying (full apk names are listed above)
    rename that file from app.file.apk to app.file.bak (just change .apk to .bak) this is making a backup of the original
    then copy that file from /data/app/ to /system/app/ and rename to the file name listed listed next to that app above.

    so for example:

    adb remount
    adb shell
    cd /data/app
    mv com.dynotes.miniinfo.apk com.dynotes.miniinfo.bak
    cp com.dynotes.miniinfo.bak /system/app/miniinfo.apk

    To Come:



    As always please make a backup before modifying any important system files.

    To install:
    Download zip and move to /sdcard/AndroidThemes/
    Open Metamorph and select "pick theme" then choose TransparentBundle.zip
    If you are modifying any market place apps then make sure to check any special instructions listed above for each app
    Select individual parts to modify or select apply all

    downloaded, put zip file in androidthemes folder. in metamorph i picked theme, it unzipped but the subthemes list is blank. tried to pick existing theme after that, selected TransparentBundle.thm but the subthemes list is still blank :(

    i applied your power control transparent widget from your other thread last night. worked like a charm and i really like it. i'd totally be down for setcpu, mini info, youtube and notification bar :) also, would you be able to do the google search widget too?

    *** on NVM all that, i just redownloaded your update with mini info in it and the subthemes are showing now.

    you are awesome :)

    Stanrc, thanks so much for doing this! Could you do one for Pandora also? I can't find any themed Pandora widgets for the latest version (1.2.1). I'm loving transparent lately!
