I think it should already support displaying transparent images. You can try replacing SystemUI.apk/res/drawable-hdpi/statusbar_background.png with a transparent image. It only works with certain launchers and you might have to use live wallpaper. And don't ask me why, I've never even tried this. :P

If you want to play with apktool you can edit SystemUI.apk/res/layout/status_bar.xml and try to change android:background="@drawable/statusbar_background" to android:background="@android:color/transparent".

How can you make transparent notification bar in UOT kitchen?

Moldovan MHMP already has transparent notification are. He clarified it twice that he means notification bar and you still don't understand... :P

I tested the android:background="@android:color/transparent" thing and it works with launcher pro, but you have to use live wallpaper. There are some other things that need some work too to make it look good though.

It's not in framework-res.apk, it's in /system/app/SystemUI.apk. You can use some zip tool to replace res/drawable-hdpi/statusbar_background.png with transparent image inside that SystemUI.apk.

It also needs some work elsewhere. When you touch the statusbar then the date background is still black. Also lockscreen is somehow 'dimmed' in other places than the status bar.

You have beg for some themer to make it into a nice theme. ;)

i'm making one with 100% transparency in the notification area and the notification bar. but im also adding some icons in the notification bar.

but you can download multipicture live wallpaper and you can set it to one wallpaper or more than one. that is just for the notification bar. but the notification area will be 100% transparent even without the live wallpaper.

i'll upload it later tonight and see if i can show an example rolleyes.gif

heres a beta: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=R01DEEZ3

but one little issue the notifications it self are fully transparent and hardly readable but i will fix that. and there also a different lock screen and flying effect.

when u go on to UOT kitchen go to status bar and click the box to "Use this mod" than click Enable transparency in status bar and check top tool bar. set the color code to any one you want and by

default

its "FFFFFF" and in the box next to it click it and select 50%. use a black status bar and set it to 50%.

then go to file upload and upload the theme. when finish submit work to kitchen then download it and flash it. hope this will help :D
