i'm running the stock unrooted version... but i was wondering if there was any way i could get a black status bar (notification) whatever without being rooted? i want to root so bad.. but i've been waiting around to see if the real one ever releases.... any suggestions??

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to get the black status bar without rooting. Access to the files can only be achieved by rooting.
Fortunately, rooting is easy these days. There are a couple of free 1-click rooting apps that will do everything for you. They've been thoroughly tested so nothing to worry about with screwing anything up.
After rooting if all you want to do is change your notification bar check out this thread HERE. It contains a very easy way to achieve the black bar.
wow.. really? I've looked & I didn't see any 1-click ones.. that's wonderful! b/c everytime I seen the warnings about data loss & all that... I got a little scared & said I'd just wait.... can you link me to one of the 1 click rooting ones? & any tips would be appreciated.. thanks so much! as of right now I did figure out a way to hide the status bar for now.. with Launcher Pro..
