    For those who would like a somewhat gradient status bar without having to jailbreak their phone. I used screenshots of the Settings window to create this wallpaper. The gradient effect comes from Apple's use of a semi-transparent status bar. This allows the user to add a gradient in the wallpaper that sits behind the status bar but shows through thanks to a semi-transparent status bar. I've also added a nice indentation for the paginator dots. Feel free to use this as a wallpaper or as a template for your own wallpaper creations.

    I've uploaded the wallpaper to the forum wallpaper section and it can be found here:

    Anyone desiring to add a grdient status bar to their wallpaper should add a gradient starting from the top of an image spanning 40 pixels down. The wallpaper should be 640 x 960 for best results.

    UPDATE (May 5, 2012): I've uploaded some templates for the home screen and lock screen backgrounds. Templates are in .psd (Photoshop) and .xcf (GIMP) formats and can be found in this thread.

    Following with the idea in the OP, I've designed a circuit board wallpaper. This new wallpaper can be found here. As always, this wallpaper can be used as any user desires.
