    Froyo was the same way until Xeudoxus modified something (can't remember if it was services.jar or framework-res.apk).

    The new location for the pulldown is shade_bg.png in SystemUI.apk.. there are a few gb ROMS that are pointing to a color code instead of that png tho.. and SystemUI errors out decompiling it so it's a tough fix.. for the ROMS that point to shade_bg, transparency is already there. All of my themes have transparent pulldowns... I made a fix for LGB but didn't have anyone to test it out so I dunno if that issue ever got fixed... hope this helps..

    Hey Bboy thanks for the reply. So you're saying if I make shade_bg transparent, the pulldown will be transparent? Without any patch?

    The one in SystemUI/res/drawable-hdpi is solid I think.. so as long as your rom is pointing to that png rather than #cc000000 or whatever the code is, then you're good to go... if you metamorph it in, it WILL fc before mm reboots. Just keep hitting fc untill mm says all themes applied.. then yank the batt and reboot... update.zip method is fine though, so far...lol...


    [​IMG] I have a black bg for my screenshots to bring out the colors but you can see the lame dockbar near the bottom... so it's transparent.. :).. But I only set the opacity to like 88%...

    Ah ok so it depends on the ROM itself too then? Anyway I'll give it a try, I'm using UD 3.0.1 so will check to see if it works. Thanks!

    Im trying to make my friends pulldown transparent on Nexus One. Its running stock 2.3.4 rom with BlackNBold widgets. Do you know if I need to do anything special on this rom. I'm charging phone now so I'll give shade_bg.png a test but I really am not sure if thats all I will need to do on this rom.

    Thanks for any info you may have.
