Default [Shaded/transparent status bar] for 8/1 froyo leak

I've taken the liberty of creating a ~50% shaded status bar as well as a fully transparent one. This has been compiled with Jercik's Smooth Sense icons and Xeudoxus' shaded notifcation background, of which i obviously take no credit for either of those modifications and would also like to thank both of them for their creations. I believe everyone should give them a hearty thank you as well.

EDIT: BIG thanks to yojoe600 for the edited services.jar with no location AND transparent status background. all zips have been updated with it, meaning no more location icon in status bar.

As with anything, do a nandroid just in case something goes wrong.
Anyways, here's a few shots of the bars:

some light bugs:
after installing the zip and booting up for first time, widgets may be doubled over themselves. just remove them and put them back up again, issue is fixed.
when debugging is enabled, upon connecting to pc through usb, weather info on the stock weather widget will disappear. just flick to a different homescreen and back, it will fix.

If any other bugs are found, please post it so i can see if i can fix it.

Well done! Quick question. Is the notification text color white? Example: "charge only" "usb debugging" on going apps etc.

Yea text is still white. I think the text color is handled by a .jar file or xml, which i dont know how to edit yet. But im getting ready to learn java development so hopefully soon i will.

Good to hear you guys arent experiencing the bugs i did.

Is it possible to compile this with the smooth sense icons/ round battery indicator? I'd do it myself but I don't know how.
