I want an invisible WiFi icon!
OK, so I'm trying to achieve a minimalist look on my iPhone and would like to have the statusbar hold items only when I have to deal with them.
Since I'm on WiFi 90% of the time I don't want that icon cluttering the statusbar. On the other hand I wish to be notified when I'm not on WiFi (perhaps the router went down?). I've tried a few statusbar managers (Clean Status, Springtomize 2) but they only allow you to hide all connection type icons.
Is there a tweak that lets me do that?
On the other hand I've been looking for a manual way to change the icon to transparent. With iOS 5 it seems that all statusbar icons are bundled in a 10MB .ARTWORK file. Any ideas on how to extract and edit those?

Transparent one is pretty easy, BUT you'll still have a space where it usually would appear. To get it, just use this theme folder (attached) but first go in and change the images to transparent using Photoshop or something similar; just keep the file names the same. Once that's done just drop it into Winterboard and enable it.
(I'm surprised Springtomize doesn't offer this...I saw that it has signal bars listed, but is that just for the cell signal?)
