**how to convert % to hex value**
Opacity is measured on a scale from 0(invisible) to 255(fully opaque). In this specific case there you need 4 values, 3 for the RGB combination and then a fourth that's for the overal opacity of the combined colors. The follow an ARGB arrangement (Alpha, Red, Green, Blue). Each value is a 2 digit hex, so you'll have 8 total alphanumeric values. So to get 80%--> .8 x 255=204. There's plenty of hex converters available for you to make it easy. Plug in 204 as your decimal number and it will tell you that "cc" is the hex equivalent. So "cc000000" would be black that's 20% transparent or 80% opaque, however you wish to call it.

ok,
downloaded apktools (windows) and exctracted to a folder.
then open terminal, go to folder and digit apktoll ...
but this is what I see : "java is not a internal or esternal command ...." where I?m in wrong ?
Like decompile systemUI but I've this error ...
tks for help Pendo

It has a low glow that sticks. Kinda weird, but it goes away. I didnt have this issue on the ones i modified previously, it might be modifications the dev has made to the glow speed. The newest one does not effect the navigation bar at all, i edited the xml as well. Solid black.

I was able to get the navigation bar transparent on gummy 5.0, but I get the problem where the wallpapaer doesn't go all the way down, it only goes half way behing the softkeys.

When I was messing around, I had a bad systemUI that FC'd. When that happened, my wallpapaer did the same thing. I tried several differnt pictures, and all had the same result, so its not the res.

I think it may be a setting for max wallpapaer height that needs changed. Anyone have any ideas where that would be?

smali edits to enable. XML to set the color. ffffffff will be solid white.. you need to change the first two digits.

Hi all. Looking good on mod. I want to try and port the softkey mods on my froyo leaked sch i400. We don't have a systemui. Apks. So I'm sure they would be in framework/twframework. Any ideas on if i can get it to port.

ff is 100% opaque. 00 is 0% opaque. 31 is 20% opaque. CC is 80% opaque.
You hushed edited it from being completely transparent to completely solid black.

Can someone please shed some light on my issue. I can't seem to make the navigationbar transparent for the life of me. I have got the transparent statusbar up and running but I don't know how to change the nav bar to transparent. I have already made the edits for the navbar in navigationbar.XML for transparency but I still have the black bar no matter what launcher I use. Help would be great thanks
