    that's the image to change that will affect your background in the pulldown.

    thank you and looking forward to the theme! i'm not looking for the background of the pull down, though. i'm looking for, what would be on your screenie, the image behind "Ongoing" and the image behind "Drocap2 drocap2 screen capture service 12:54pm".

    also, i would think it'd be in SystemUI.apk but i couldn't find it for the life of me last night. is it in there or in framework-res.apk?

    thank you!

    so what you want is like what I have - the warrior woman in the image - right?

    that's the shade_bg.png inside the systemui.apk
    I just changed it to the image I wanted and voila

    though i do enjoy the metal on breasts, i'd actually like to change the dark grey that "ongoing" lays directly on to another color, rather than dark grey.

    also, if you look at the pic i've attached, i'd like to change the white-grey image behind "usb debugging connected", "usb connected", and "write speech for allen" to another color.


    so i'm looking for the image that lays on top of shade_bg.png from systemui.apk.

    thank you!

    what you want is in the framework-res.apk

    - status_bar_header_background
    - status_bar_item_app_background_normal
    - status_bar_item_background_focus
    - status_bar_item_background_normal
    - status_bar_item_background_pressed

    that should do the trick for what you are wanting

    are those the right images for gingerbread? i'm trying to lift the black ones from LGB, which i previously flashed, but when i opened them they looked the same. then when i updated the framework-res.apk in my set up it remains the same color :(

    yep I'm running 5.0.2 right now
    hmm those were the ones I changed.
    I made them completely transparent.

    I pretty much left the ones inside the systemui.apk alone
    as they were .9.png and wanted to keep the guides in place.

    the one in the systemui.apk

    - status_bar_background.9.png

    in my setup, it's completely black

    maybe yours is a different color in there??

    i'd already changed status_bar_background.9.png in systemui.apk to black. i really don't understand gingerbread.

    perhaps i was mistaken about LGB or something, but i swear it was black which is what made me want to switch back to black notifications. i went back to one of my other custom themes and copied the images you'd listed out of there to my framework-res.apk and now all is well.

    thank you for your time and patience!

    NP :D

    glad you got things the way you wanted them.
    and yeah, gingerbread does create some new twists
    but it's all part of learning and keeping up with google, lol
