    I'm was wondering if there is a flashiable zip file to make the status bar and the pulldown transparent on my ov. I'm running Harmonia 2. I've raped the search button on Google but I haven't found anything that helps me. Thank you!

    Try Ninja Morph. You'll need to download a transparent status bar image to your sdcard first, then Ninja Morph can swap it out. Do the same to replace the shade background png, that's the dropdown background.

    Just wanted to give Ninja Morph another shout out, you can change any status bar image with it. Here's an example where I changed the alarm clock icon using Ninja Morph, and it's all done right on the phone.

    For the transparent status bar, isn't it necessary to edit the some of the xml files as well? Just changing the statusbar_background.png in SystemUI.apk is not sufficient, AFAIR. However, changing shade_bg.png in SystemUI.apk was sufficient to make notification background transparent.

    It is sufficient. All you have to do is erase the pixels in that png and it will be transparent. That's how I've always done it... although I never decompiled the framework just 7zip-edited it.

    I'll have to defer to others on the xml. I have changed BACKside to support transparency in the status bar via java, and I believe BobZhome uses the same changes. Hope I didn't confuse anyone.

    Note- the comments in the java code suggest battery life is affected to some degree by transparency in the status bar, which is why it's not natively supported. I still get a full day on my battery regardless of status bar background, ymmv.

    Can you please post which png file exactly you are editing for status bar transparency? This is not the notification background which is /res/drawable-mdpi/shade_bg.png in SystemUI.apk. If you can put a screenshot, that would also be appreciated.

    Thanks Jerry, the changes in your repo also involve editing multiple xml files besides Java code modifications. I know that those are more than just a simple mod of status bar transparency but still ... Anyway, thanks for the input. I hope Anthony clarifies how he does.

    The xml changes are only for the settings, not for the actual status bar itself, with the exception of my changing the default background images to a transparent version, and I set the default background color to transparent as well. I'm still not sure it's all necessary if you edit the png file itself. The default images are statusbar_background.9.png for the black one, and status_bar_background.9.png for the white one. I added a third one that is transparent.

    Your clock seems a bit small Jerry.

    Originally AOSP had those resources in the framework-res.apk and they are moved to SystemUI.apk about two years ago probably by CM devs. In addition to the two files in SystemUI that you have pointed out, there are still six status bar related png files in framework-res.apk
    status_bar_background.png2
    status_bar_header_background.9.png
    status_bar_item_app_background_normal.9.png
    status_bar_item_background_focus.9.png
    status_bar_item_background_normal.9.png
    status_bar_item_background_pressed.9.png

    I suspect, there are still many pngs that are not used and needed in the CM repo. All that debris go into the ROMs we build and inflate the ROM size, reduce efficiency. Probably, the white background that you show in SystemUI.apk is not used as well. The files are distributed here and there in such a mess. I was trying to clean up the unnecessary files to save space and increase the ROM performance recently. But searching on the forums for such information is such a pain, that is why I am asking questions to clarify the comments here.

    @mrg I guess you are right, I edit the pngs in systemUI that you posted, but since the editing I do is mostly in backside, I never ran into the problem with transparency not being supported by the XML.

    I take back what I said earlier, unless you are on backside.
