One of the things I really miss from Cyanogenmod7 and my brief time with the Nexus is the AOSP notification area. I just really am not a fan of the Sense icons/fonts/etc in the notification bar. The notification pulldown itself I don't have too many issues with (other than it sometimes being sluggish to pull down - haven't nailed that down yet). I was just hoping there was possibly a way to mimic CM7's notifications or some way to theme it? My bootloader is unlocked and I'm permarooted, but I get the feeling the notifications are baked into the system UI and there may be no way to replace or theme it. But I figured I would ask anyway If this isn't possible with GB, is there any hope this will be possible in the Sense-based ICS once we get it?
