Hi gyus,

I'm running my XU on FW 6.1.1.C.1.0 , rooted, LB, installed CWM for LB. I'd like to ask you if there is some possible way to make upper icon bar fully transparent instead of standard black color? I don't want to install any custom ROM. Is there some application or mod, which is able to make this icon bar transparent?

Thank you very much gyuz,

Rado

Yes, you can actually. Xblast stated that you can, but i haven't tried it. And in the thread, there are screenshot showing transparent notification bar. Here is the link to the module
