    I am sure someone will give you a better suggestion, but you can always Google images (clear/glass backgrounds). Then use what ever program your using to create the LockBackground image (320x480), that is my quick suggestion or look for some complete themes on Cydia or here that are Icy/or glass of some sort.

    oops uploading transparent pics is funny, they ARE in fact there if you right click where they ought to be.

    but try this instead

    I think he is asking how, so maybe PM him in how to make his slider image clear. That may be more helpful for now and in the long run of his theming.

    i'll just put it here for the rest to see as well.

    first of all does he have winterboard and SBSettings on the iPod?

    does he have winscp and wifi on the desktop?

    if not, get these and then get back to us...

    Obviously he has WinSCP and WinterBoard, because why else would he be asking how to make the slider clear on the LockBackground?? It seems that he is at the point where he is attempting his own theme, and he has to have those to finish it off to his iPod.

    The slider and its background are located in
    private/var/stash/Themes.XXXXX/your-theme/Bundles/com.apple.TelehonyUI
    (look here http://www.hackthatphone.com/20/graphics_locations.html)

    The slider consist of two parts

    1.
    the actual slider is called bottombarknobgray.png. Typical dimensions for a slider are (all dims are in px's)

    - full slider 71x47
    - half slider 175x47
    - tapper 275x47

    2.
    the background (where the slider slides in from left to right) is called
    bottombarbkgndlock.png, its dimensions are
    79x96

    Basically, if you want to make a transparent or invisble slider you need to

    1.
    create a blank or transparent png (in photoshop, gimp or some other app), make sure its dimensions are 71x47 and name it bottombarknobgray.png.

    2.
    Then, create a second png, make sure its dimensions are 79x96 and name it bottombarbkgndlock.png.

    3.
    Put these two png files in your winterboard theme folder at this location
    private/var/stash/Themes.XXXXX/name_of_your_theme/Bundles/com.apple.TelehonyUI

    and respring your device.
