    Ok so I have been battling the elusive transparent status bar for a while now. I have been successful with it in AR3.2 Jellybean mod, but I am still struggling with it in CM7. I have gotten the themes to be transparent but as i have come to understand that the ROM itself has a black backround for the status bar. I am going to decompile the framework.res for the rom itself and see if I can find the statusbar backround and attempt to replace it with a transparent one (a decompiled transparent backround from a UOTtheme that has worked in the past). If anyone knows any steps that I may be missing please let me know as I am not expecting much from this attempt, but I would welcome any help on this matter. thanks.

    This is the working UOT flash of the transparent statusbar. It has transparency in the popups as well and also some icons I changed. I dont know exactly how I got this to work, as I did this 6 months or so ago. As far as I remember all I did was flash this UOT theme. I have not been working on the CM7 transparency lately. I was thinking of modifying this flash by removing everything except the status bar items and attempting to flash but I have not checked to see if all the file extensions for the status bar were the same or not.

     I did try to use ninja morph a few times to change the statusbar transparency in CM7 and kept seeing the black background that CM7 runs under the normal status bar. I was never able to find the black background statusbar png though. Anyway heres where I left off.
