Default [Q] Transparent status bar for CM7.1

I was using this mod for CM7:

But it no longer works for CM7.1 (because core is 2.3.7), does anyone know how to manually make the bar transparent? Or have the time to get this mod working for 2.3.7?

This is the only thing missing for me on 7.1 now, other than that I love the latest version (thanks cyanogen)! Thanks XDA folks, I've been using the site for over 5 years now.

Try this edit definately not my work and I can't remember who made it to give proper credits, sorry. But it is working on the latest ILWT CM7 so it should work for you. Install then open theme chooser and apply.

Edit....just went to find out where I got this and seems now its paid, wasn't when I got it. Sorry. It called Green Hornet

Yo, I don't know your phone's details (I guess it's hdpi), but I'm pretty sure that you can tweak cm7 to make the statusbar transparent in just a few easy steps.

You can follow the guide I wrote on this (post#2) here on this thread:

Don't be afraid but the lenght of the post, it is much easier than it might seem - believe me, I do it in less than 5 minutes now...

I've also included a cm7 transparent-enabled GingerBlur theme that I've modded (from kevin2576's original) on the OP.

All this for free!! So go loose on the Thank button hits.
