HTC Sensation CM7 Transparent StatusBar


Code:
What this means :-
You get transparent statusbar with themes that have a transparent statusbar_background.png

What you need :-
CM7 Alpha 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10
Custom recovery menu


Launchers :-
Launcher Pro - Only works with Live Wallpaper, if normal wallpapers you'd have to Hide notification bar at Appearance Settings
Adw Launcher - Disable Wallpaper Hack
Go Launcher - don't work atm 
GB Launcher - No problems
Arc Launcher - No problems ( I use this. Looks better and feels better than all others. )
Patch
Themes
Code:
Cyanbread.apk
Androidian.apk
Minimal Magic.apk
RetroDroid.apk
ICS.apk
MixerTheme.apk

( They will appear as @string/theme_name so just try. I don't know how to fix this yet )


This is how to make this patch work with other themes.

1 : Pull theme APK from device ( titanium backup would work fine )
2 : Unpack the APK
3 : Make a semi transparent 480x38 png named statusbar_background2 and place it in /Res/Drawable-HDPI ( it does not have to replace the old statusbar background. ) It can have textures or just transparent. This part will replace your old statusbar background. (You can pull it off another transparent APK. Will not tell you which theme go search :P)
3 : Go into /Res/XML and find com_android_systemui.xml and open with a text editor.
4 : Find the lines
Quote:

@drawable/statusbar_background.9

and change it to

Quote:

@drawable/statusbar_background2

( Change the item name to the png you've made )
If it's not there just add the 2nd line with red words :P

Then repack your apk and install and apply. Should work! if it does not, contact me.

Once again this flashable zip file belongs to ZduneX25 and not me. Make sure to check out the original thread

Would be great if someone would test it out
Edit : will make a patch to help you patch your theme easier,but you will have to wait. And I know the screen shot says June, because it's from my n1 but its exactly the same

If you look at the taskbar or window frames in Vista/7 you can see it's blurred (if Aero is enabled). So what I'm asking is if it's possible to add this kind of blur to transparent parts of the Android GUI. I came to think of it when I noticed that the background gets blurred when you open "Phone options" by long-pressing the power button.

Ah,should be easy to do. Tell me where you want it applied. I won't be able to do it now though. I have exams

You need a themed apk. Which I have listed the steps here.
