    Yay, after finding out about the wallpaper hack I got my transparent bar again! I'll post screenshots just as soon as I fix a bug with the android sdk. =(

    Xkape or Mbk, I have had time to search the fw and found one that may be what we are looking for.. I can't actually do any modding til later (kids) but if you get a chance, make this .9 xparent....

    title_bar_shadow.9.png and see if that removes the line just under where the statusbar would be if not xparent.....

    Let me know...

    LOL... yes I'm working on one right now... however wihtout the line there it'll also look sorta weird in other screens, like the lockscreen and some others, since those masks the transparency with a slightly tinted transparent layer of their own... so what I'm trying to do is to make that status bar transarency have a little tint to match.... hopefully...

    ecsnead nailed it in the beginning, I just pinpointed the actual title_bar_shadow.9.png, no class of 'shadow.9' pngs...;)

    I was thinking of trying a solid black gradient to xparent to give it some background. I figured that if you had a white bg in some apps the clock and other stuff might "disappear"....

    You had the right idea from when I posted that first screenshot, and it was indeed the Title_Bar_Shadow.9.PNG... so here's the MetaMorph for those that would like to try it out...
    I couldn't get it tinted to match the other screens, so I just matched it to blend in with the homescreen only (screenshots below), and thanks to ecsnead we now are 'line-less' :p ;)...

    Cool you guys found it. I was able to find my old MM and I brought back my transparent bar. Icons are from rEVOlution, but I tweaked them so it looks acceptable against black and white backgrounds. :)
