First of my themes is ready. Details here
There are 3 versions of the theme. One with image in statusbar, one with black statusbar and one with semi-transparent statusbar. For transparent bar to work, you need a compatible launcher, like adw, zeam etc. Will not work with twlauncher.
: If you need a fully transparent bar, just replace statusbar_background.9.png with a fully transparent one in the Transparent theme and flash again.
The png resides in SystemUI.apk under the /res/drawable-hdpi folder.
