    Default Transparent Status Bar: Request
    Wow, I may have said to much in the title there...
    Well, thats what I would like, a status bar that is transparent completely, with just the text visible on the homescreen, and for the status bar to be exactly the same for everything else.

    Any ideas/files?

    Here you go. Just rename the files in archive -
    FSO_BG.png
    FST_BG.png
    Default_BG.png

    and put them in
    System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/...

    Just downlaod from Cydia Transparent Status bar theme and you slect it winterboard and you ll have your transparent bar (put the theme on top). Why making it complicated when you can do easy and also like this you dont delete your original.

    the Transparent Status bar option is no longer available in Winterboard it seems. That is the whole reason why ppl are asking including myself.

    My 8gb iphone3g has it as an option in winterboard and it must have came with it cus I dont have it in Cydia in my packages. I tried to look up what repo it is in so I could get it on my 16gb iphone3g with 2.2.1 but again I think it was part of older Winterboards but not in newer ones.

    I dont know when it stopped being included but sucks that its not available from any repo in cydia to dl, so now we are forced to manually make and install something we used to have automatically with Winterboard.

    hopefully this will get realized and someone will put a transparent status bar on cydia.

    meantime i guess i can eitehr ssh into my phone that has it and try to get it off for use on my other iphone or use the one the person here made and manually install it.

    FSO is the home screen status bar and FST is the lock screen status bar right?

    what is the Default_BG?

    Default_BG is the status bar in the apps such as mail and phone and others.

    Wow this board and its members are so helpful! was wondering if someone could help me with this one please.

    im looking to remove the "Wallpaper Preview" text, its gradient background and the gradient background next to the "Cancel" and "Set" buttons within Settings/Wallpaper (how it is on the iPhone 4 at least), when selecting a wallpaper to use.. keeping only the Cancel and Set buttons visable and operational.

    If someone could point me into the right direction of which files need to be transparent, i would be very grateful

    Regards, Guj

    hi im a bit confused... i mean i dont understand what files i am renaming.. i already put those files in the right folder, the ones you made.. but it does not work.. so i am assuming i need to delete the ones that are making the status bar black?

    The file names changed in 4.3..... So the names given don't exist in the iOS for the status bar. That's all I know, I have yet to find the new names on the forum or google
