    I will up a music one a bit later tonight if no one beats me to it, or knows where one is already hosted. I have it done, just don't have my USB cable on me right now.

    I have made SetCPU, Mini-Info, Pandora, and AudioManager transparent as well. They are required to be in the /system/app/ folder. If you want themes for them I can send them over a bit later as well. Some people have had problems with MM theming some things though, so you may have to theme them manually, but if you want them I can mash them together into a theme and you can do what you please with them.

    Sorry for the delay, got caught up in a movie and kinda forgot I said I was going to do this. haha

    I went ahead and threw together most, if not all of the transparencies I have done to widgets.

    I removed all other theming beyond the transparency though.
    Default apps
    - Genie News and Weather
    - Music
    - Power
    - YouTube

    I threw in the other market apps I have made clear as well. I will post a couple screen grabs of them too. My audio manager I also themed the audio bars, that isn't included in this theme, just the clear background.

    - AudioManager
    - FML
    - MiniInfo
    - Pandora
    - SetCPU

    To get those to possibly work with MM, you are going to have to move them from /data/app/ to /system/app/ and rename them to fit exactly as above.

    If that doesn't work you can always do it manually, which is pretty much a guaranteed success. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...s-ese53-noob-guide-adb-pull-push-theming.html <-- is a basic guide to doing it. Pull the file from /data/app/, theme it, push it back to /system/app/ . Double check their permissions (chmod 644 or rw- r-- r--). I can go in more detail if necessary.

    *Edit* I messed something up in the zip, if you grabbed it prior to reading this. Redownload it. Sorry if you grabbed it prior to me catching it.

    AudioManager.apk didn't work for the large widget. I made the bg files in drawable-hdpi transparent for the large widget. PM if you want them. Thanks for your work!
