    hi their ,

    What do you mean exactly? you want transparent like Icons on the home screen? App menu?

    If so I would suggest a home replacement app such as aHome, pandahome, etc and find a theme which supports the transparent design.

    Any other suggestions? :)

    I don't have personal experience with this, but I believe that Anycut or Bettercut from the market allows you to change your icons.

    Anyone tried this?

    Bettercut is great for changing icons ... but it sounds to me that the OP wants to make the lable (or name) of the app dissapear. If thats the case, he could use Bettercut or Anycut to change the name of the icon to a single space. I havent tried it, but it might work

    Sorry if I wasn't clear enough.... Look at the (2) attached images. One is from my Windows XP desktop and the "names" or "labels" have transparent backgrounds. Now look at the Eris screenshot. Instead of the dark, rounded-rectangle icon labels, I'd like them to also be transparent.

    Looking at the website for BetterCut, I'm not sure it will. He shows some screenshots that appear to have transparent icon label backgrounds, but I think the background color of the "screen" is simply very similar, or the same, as the color of the icon label background.

    Agreed and seconded. Also, great job with the visual reference! You are indeed truly dedicated to your cause.

    Download "LauncherPro" from your market (this is a whole new launcher designed to replace your phone's system launcher), once done, while on your home screen, press options>preferences>appearance settings>then uncheck the "show icon labels background"

    This is the only way i know of and if you uninstall launcherpro, it'll revert back to your system launcher again and of course put the background behind label again

    Hope this helps
