    Actually after looking into the code a bit... If you don't use the included stock launcher then the search bar doesn't appear at the top of the home screen.

    I installed ADW EX Launcher and search bar at the top was gone.

    The code for the search bar is in two parts.... Part of it to "activate it" is in the Launcher2.apk and the rest of the code is in the framework-res.apk.

    So if you don't want that search bar at the moment just flash a 3rd party launcher. Otherwise I will try and post a modded Launcher to flash a little later this evening. Shouldn't be a problem to remove.
    Yeah, I was just saying that if you make a themed version, make a version that includes the Google search bar at the top, because I like it and I'll want it if I like your modded launcher.

    I don't know if this is only my phone but the wallpaper crop seems to be off for all the wallpapers that i download from something like zedge, and even the stock gingerbread wallpapers too. Is there a way to fix this or some place i can get wallpapers that actually FIT. Thanks.

    Just by editing build.prop in system. You can change the Android version and the Build # to whatever you want.

    You have to use APK TOOL or APK Manager to decompile the apks and then Notepad ++ to view the XMLs...

    At this point I really wouldn't recommend messing with it as I'm having enough of a hurdle doing these little things because without official source being dropped the tools required to de compile (baksmali and APK TOOL) are not yet updated to support ICS and de compiling has been a real touch and go situation....

    On another subject about modding in the build.prop, you can change those lines in the About Phone to say whatever you like... They can say Batting1000's ROM if you like... That is why in the early stages months ago when the first leaked pics of ICS came out people said it was themes and then people just modified the build.prop to say ICS 4.0 or whatever they like... Oldest trick in the book...

    Its fairly easy though and I know I'm going to wipe it once the update comes up.

    Don't forget to remove the backup file that is created and save it somewhere else. Then set permission if it is not set already.
