Default Transparent Notification Bar?

Hi all, I was looking to make my notification bar transparent so if anyone could help that would be great. Before you start saying how i should learn to search, I already have ( Changing the statusbar color ) and the one post that had the file and instructions i wanted is now missing the file which sucks. I already have a transparent notification window(drag down) but not bar so please help!

Home++ has the option to hide the notification bar.

Look for a thread called post your droid screen and you will see lots of pictures of this.

I was just wondering about this too...like a glass look.

DroidRootHelper has a skull theme you can install so there has to be an easy way to do it. Please let me know if you find out, I would really like that.

yes, you have to be rooted and have busybox installed, then get the app "metamorph" from the market, there are a lot of themes on alldroid that use metamorph so I would suggest getting it just to play around with really lol. but if you wanted to change the notification bar to transparent neway u have to be rooted

can you please answer this. I installed Meta Morph, I run it and it says there isn't enough room in /system or busybox is not installed....neither of these statements is correct. I tried to link cp in term and it just says file already exists.

You need to symlink cp!

type the following in your terminal:

su
ln -s /system/bin/busybox /system/bin/cp

That should do it (if it doesnt try the the paths swapped around)
