how do i make the drop down status bar background transparent ? i have the changed the png with a transparent png of my choice, but even after every thing it still comes as a full black rather than a semi transparent black (which is the picture i replaced the original with).
also, how do i edit the xml file and what do i have to edit to attain transparency in the back ground. i would also love if i could do the same for the lockscreen. since all this is framework-res.apk. how do i correctly decompile and compile back the xmls and whats the best and the correct way to sign the apk back. caz i have been having issuses with reboots and FC's.
i know its alot of questions, but just tryin to learn how to skin/mod android correctly. thank you guys
(This is what i want, a transparent background)
