    I'm considering asking this on XDA Developers too, but does anyone here have either any experience or knowledge on what to do to try and replace the stock 2.1 notification bar with the thin bar that was present on the Xperia X10 when it was still running 1.6? I quite like the thin one present on 1.6 (I quite like the way the app drawer opens on it too), but I'd rather have the functionality of 2.1 while if it's possible, keeping that notification bar.

    EDIT: I've got a screenshot which shows the notification bar here:

    The app also caught the tail of itself on the left, so you can ignore that little bit.

    Yeah, I was planning to go ask over there, actually; was worth a try here anyway.

    Changing the notification bar involves first having to have your device rooted, and then installing a custom recovery, like ClockworkMod, depends on your device.

    It's done by downloading the update.zip file that contains the theme, and performed in recovery, and then you will have the theme of your choice with all your apps, and same Android version. This IS HIGHLY dangerous so if you don't have a good experience about recovery, then don't do it.

    (My recommendation is to download ROM Manager from the Market to install ClockworkMod from that app. (IF IT'LL WORK) But I'm not responsible for damages, you should look it up if it works on the XPERIA before trying.)

    Chao~.
