If interested, you can go read my 2nd post on this thread. It look awefully long and complicated, but believe me the whole process takes me less than 4-5 minutes now; so give it a shot; you might learn a thing or two in the process...

Cheers.

p.s: I got here looking for recent cm7 nightly builds thread for my gf's blade...still looking...anyone could share a link or two on this. Thx.
Thank you AL, your method works with my FTL launcher very well. Only I had to additionally change transparency of those four .png files (with paint.net I set to 128 instead of standard 255). Now I have status bar transparent!

Np!

I'm glad that it helped you and thanks for reporting that it works with FTL Launcher. I updated the post and mentioned it there [with a mention to you ].

...since you're a new user on xda: welcome here and don't forget to try the "Thanks" button sometimes hehehe [I feel guilty asking for thanks...]

Cheers!

Sorry Rapier07: I don't want to highjack your thread here but I truly believe that you should bring some changes to the OP and here's why:

I do not believe that those patches (or mods like you've called them) will work on each and every cm7 builds.

To my knowledge, those 'mods' were most likely created from a tool like this one from ZduneX25 --> and that in turns, requires the CM7 build's specific SystemUI.apk and Framework-res.apk. So any change to either of those two files would render the patches useless.

Different CM7 releases, nightly builds or Kangs are most likely to have some changes to the two files mentioned above. So unless you clearly state in the OP which exact rom those patches have been designed for or tested on, you really should point people to the tool, the UOT Kitchen or even the 'manual' method of editing the systemUI.apk that I've mentioned here a few posts back instead. Otherwise, this thread will soon become a mess of horror stories...
- just like this one -which I will go and refer to this exact post next...

Cheers.

I'm aware about whatever you said there. The zips i posted works for all kang variations before 19th feb. I will keep on updating this as the builds progress. Just couldn't get a hold of the latest build as my Laptop broke.

Also i can point people to the tools as you said but just have a look around the forum and see how many people are struggling to get it working.

OK, I'm not trying to argue here but I'd just like to ask you a honnest question so bare with me please...

You're saying that your mod should work on every cm7 rom made before Feb19th including builds from burgerz, sej, burstlam and any other kangs?

The fact that it no longer work since that date; isn't that the proof that the two files I mentioned changed and that they most likely were different in the past??

Anyway, fine if it works and that I'm mistaken but I think it was a fair warning. I'll be glad to be proven wrong.

Cheers.
