    Does an app exist for the Galaxy S2 to make the notification bar at the top transparant? So that the wallpaper can be made full screen, and be visible behind the bar? Just wondered.. :)

    Thanks.

    okay. well, unfortunately i can't direct you to exactly where the png image is for the notification tray since i haven't rooted yet. the structure may be set up a little different than when i was on my Evo, but on my old device, system image files were located in either the framework-res.apk or the SystemUI.apk (res\drawable-hdpi). you don't have to actually take the apks apart, you just need something like 7zip to open the archive and replace the png with a transparent one.

    you might wanna try xda because not a lot of people here are gonna know what i'm even referring to right now lol
