I C THRU U 0.8 – Transparent Bars, M2D Slider

If you really want to personalize/tweak your home screen, this tool will come in very handy. XDA member Jumba presents us with this application that will automatically cut a piece of your favorite wallpaper in order to skin the top and bottom bars, thus making them look like they are transparent. The app has recently been updated to version 1.0b5, which now fixes the app’s GUI.

About ICTU

I C Thru U is a tool that automatically crops sections from your wallpaper and sets them as the backgrounds to your taskbar and softkey bars (plus the Manila2D slider and button if you want) so they appear transparent. It can also do some other tricks like removing the background from the softkey buttons. Of course this isn’t real transparency but it’s the next best thing.

Install to your device and run via the “I C Thru U” shortcut. Take a look at the screenshot above – it’s arranged so you simply click the button for the transparency you want to apply. The top two rows use the existing wallpaper, the next row lets you choose a new wallpaper (and make it transparent), and the bottom row has some system commands like backup and restore. The buttons show which parts of the wallpaper will be made transparent, e.g. the top left button only changes the taskbar. See next post for info on the “special fix” option.

For the resizing and conversion this script uses ImgResize.exe by Andrew Coates, and the interface uses cimg.exe by Cyclonezephyrxz7.

Have fun! To return to your previous settings either restore your backup or re-select your themes in Settings>Home as well as in M2DC.

Updates:

01.06 – 1.0b5 – After many attempts, the app with gui should new be working. 馃槢

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts聽comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
