    I apologize, I'm sure this has been asked before, but I searched and couldn't find it. I would like to change the colors of the Wif bars on the status bar at top of screen I extracted the .png files (blue bars), opened them in Paint, and manually changed the color to yellow. Zipped them back up in Metamorph format and pushed them to my Metamorph format and pushed them to my sdcard Applied theme using Metamorph, and it worked, except that the background is now white. I created a theme using the original 5 files. I created a theme using the original 5 png's with blue bars, applied the theme, and it worked and it doesn't have the white background. I think I understand what's happening, but not sure how to format the pictures correctly so just the bars show without the background. Any help appreciated, thanks

    You have to use a program which supports transparency, like photoshop, I'm not sure of a free one, but that's what happened.

    Ah Ha, that makes sense. Off to Costco, I think they have photo shop on sale.

    Yep, Gimp works great. No need to spend a bunch of money on photoshop for such simple editing.

    GIMP does pretty much everything photoshop does. I wasted tons of money on ps a few years ago, now I use GIMP.

    Cool stuff man, thanks.

    It worked, the wife wanted photoshop anyway. If anyone wants yellow radio bars let me know. I pulled the .png's from Simply Stunning 1.0.3, but I think they would work on any 2.1, maybe even 2.0.1

    Thanks, again.
