    I've noticed some ROMs, including the Sholes.info ROM, has this feature. I believe this is a feature of 2.1 as well. Is there a simple way to install this on an existing 2.0.1 ROM? I would install the Sholes.info ROM, but after experiencing massive slowdowns in that ROM, I decided to do everything manually from stock root (ie install 2.1 music and gallery individually, install multitouch browser by itself).

    You just have to change the background file in the framework-res.apk and the use adb and push it back to your phone.

    You can also add the transparent background to a framework file in metamorph and install it that way if you dont want to use ADB.

    I have a thread in the Themes forum titled "Metamorph themes confirmed as working on the Droid" that has transparent files attached to it. Grab the attachment, take the transparent background out, copy it into the framework folder of a metamorph theme, and then use metamorph to install the framework. After a reboot you will be good to do.

    There are ways to remove the slowdowns while still keeping the ROM. (e.g. disabling compcache)
