    I found out that launcher pro when not hiding the notification bar cuts the background under the notification bar, does anyone know a way to extend the background to under the notification bar?

    Unfortunately, it's not a graphic you have to edit... It's some core framework files, I believe. I ran into the same issue with DarkEdge on the Droid 1. LauncherPro actually moves the notification bar up the visible field, so the wallpaper extends automatically, and when the bar is reshown, if it is transparent, the wallpaper is then visible through it. The problem is that, by default, Android begins to draw the wallpaper beneath the bar. Trying to do otherwise for custom theming has produced problems all around. I wish you best of luck, because as far as I know, no one has yet figured this problem out. Numerous people would be grateful if you did...

    Yes, it will just replace the status bar. the icons should stay the same.

    go to Xeudous section on DroidForums and use his transparency edit for Froyo... the problem is your system might not be set up to accept transparent images yet on the rom/theme you are using

    I got it figured out, some launcher programs crop the wallpaper, the ota home launcher keeps the wallpaper under the status bar while launcher pro crops it to the bottom of the status bar. ADW also has a setting to include the status bar or not. I was using launcher pro and that was the reason why the bar was always black.

    Id get the metamorph from droidpirate.com then use multi-live wallpaper. It stretches the wallpaper past the status bar, thus you can see ur wallpaper threw the status bar. Also with multi-live you can set each one of ur homescreens to a different picture, change the transitions, etc.
