    Whoops.... it appears that I do have a transparent status bar... which I can only tell if the background is rather light, as it is too dark. Is there a tweak I haven't tried that will allow you to make the status bar more transparent? (I'm on iOS 6.1.2, and I've tried Clear Statusbar, Transparent Status bar, Clear Bars iOS5 and removing all winterboard themes).

    I have a theme that will make the status bar background completely transparent on the homescreen and lockscreen as well as certain apps. Its tested on IOS 3/4 but should work on any; simply place the file below into Library/Themes and enable with Winterboard.

    Great call, thanks! I actually had Clear The Air installed, but obviously did not configure it correctly. With it, I finally managed to get the status bar transparent on the home screen.

    Lewisweekly: Thanks for the upload, but it didn't work for me. Like the other winterboard themes I mentioned trying above, it wasn't lightening up the status bar enough to see that its transparent. Its always possible it was being blocked on my phone by a tweak or other, ie. Clear the Air.
