Default Manila/Sense 2.5 Tweaks by me

Okay, I only have a few of these to start off with but I've been getting really into making manila's layout as functionally transparent as possible. I know a couple guys already have a bunch of transparent clocks, sliders, contacts, etc. out there so I haven't done any of them (they all work the same) but there have been a couple areas really bugging me.

My first Tweaks have to do with the internet shortcuts in the Internet tab. Over the next couple days I will be updating this with Transparent other areas (such as the internet search bar, Twitter Title, and more. I hope you find these useful and can give me some feedback.

You know the drill: I have tested these on Energy.RHOD500.23519.Leo_04.Feb.2010 (Running Sense 2.5 build 2011) only, However they should work on any ROM running build 2011 of Manila 2.1 and should work on the earlier builds of manila 2.5. They are also completely uninstallable should you encounter any issues. Still though, I gotta say it: use at your own risk, yada yada. Don't blame me if aliens come and destroy your phone.

Invisible Unused Internet Shortcut Buttons

Semi Transparent Internet Shortcut Buttons

No Music Player Gradient

That Gradient in the seek area really started getting on my nerves.
Here

No Internet Search Bar Background

Here

No Twitter Tab Status Update Background

Here

No Slider Bottom

Here
I think it looks much better when using something like HDWalls.
*Note This will give you the see through slider that is in the image without the bottom bar. If you have another custom slider this will overwrite it. I am willing to do other sliders but you will have to first provide me with the manila files to do so.


To use:
Download Cab and install. Reset required.

I don't think I understand, There are screen shots in the post. Were you asking for before shots as well as the after shots that are posted?

(this will work nicely as a reserved spot too, only have enough for one more attachment on the first post)

I have a screen shot of each of the effects of them below their title. I can't however do a one screen shot of the effects of all of them because some are on different tabs but they are there. Hosted on photobucket, do you have photobucket blocked by some chance? I can PM you a different hosting location of them if you'd like, but they are there, odd...

I tried your No.Slider.Bottom.Manila.2011-Boushh.cab with Manila 20113626 from Miri_HD2_WM65X_23529_Sense25_V3.2 but it does not work. The slider is still there. Can you check it again?

Many thanks,

NTD
