Default Dark Gray Status Bar and Transparent shade

First of all, you must have root for this to work and I am not responsible for your actions!! If you were tech savvy enough to root your droid x, then you will be able to do this mod.

Download the droid10a.zip from link below and unzip the contents to the root of your sdcard. Now very carefully copy or type the code seen below. Your droid will take a little longer to reboot. Do not interrupt it!

simply make a copy of your original framework-res.apk first

su
mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
cp /system/framework/framework-res.apk /sdcard
mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system

put the original in a safe place ( I have the original also ).

now repeat the original cp instructions from post1 above.

You know, This is by FAR the OTHER best contribution after ROOT! Jesus were you right of that white task bar! Coming from an Evo, nothing and I mean nothing bothered me more than that! LoL.. Thanks, I am gonna make a copy of mine, but, you should post the Original in the OP Like you said later on in the thread, you'll have some asking, How do i do go back again? Thanks Again.

This looks and feels so much better!
