    So I tried performing the Transparent Statusbar Tweak made by Zdunex25 here: Zdune Android - Tweaks but for some reason it didn't work. The phone would boot but the statusbar would not display. I tried patching it using his native method and his based method, both causing the statusbar not to display. I was wondering if there is another method that would allow a transparent statusbar. I do wonder why Zdune's tweak did not work, because it was meant for CM7.

    I know that melissapuggs got it to work at some point, so I know it is possible.

    Hm, interesting. Yeah, I was hoping that the mod would work, but oddly it didn't. I'm hoping that someone knows a way to get it working, and I will continue to look myself.

    I can see if I still have the file she sent me on my computer (I wouldn't count on it though). I was having issues when I tried to do it myself. It would be semi-transparent except at certain times it would be totally black, and sometimes text would overlap. It was a mess, and she had a fix. Maybe you could try sending a PM to see what she did or see if she still has the file.

    if your dealing with Hex Color Codes #FF means solid and #00 means transparent

    example

    #FF000000 = Solid Black

    #00000000 = Transparent Black


    try adding this to the code

    android:textColor="#00000000"

    It's for CM7. I believe it is for theme chooser themes, but it might also be able to be used without that.

    Yes it is for CM7 I'm using a MIUI v4 theme and it supposed to have a transparent status bar, so I tried that mod. Alright, Ill do that and see if she has it. Thanks.

    As for the hex codes, I am not sure where I would change those, I don't think the mod did anything regarding hex, but it might be a good try. Thanks though.
