what about skinning it? ie take the top x pixels of my image and use "that" as the "skin" for the notification bar ? (like we do in winmo)
It doesn't matter what you put as the notification bar skin, it won't be transparent because Froyo doesn't support transparency for the notification bar - there's more involved than just rendering an image. If you use a completely transparent image, you'll end up with a black bar.
