I am using a Google Nexus One and have just flashed CyanogenMod 7 onto it. I noticed that the lockscreen shows the status bar on it, as shown on the image with this post.

Is there a way to hide the status bar on the lockscreen? You can see what I am trying to achieve in this case, which is a lockscreen that only displays the wallpaper (CyanogenMod gesture to unlock). I have been able to hide the sliders as well through the CyanogenMod settings but could not find a way to hide the status bar when the lockscreen is active.

Switch to custom lockscreens. Many provide a way to hide status bar. I use WidgetLocker Lockscreen which supports this feature.

My main reason for sticking with CM7 is the gesture based lock screen. Does WidgetLocker Lockscreen allow for gestures/drawings to unlock? – Mendhak May 11 '12 at 14:34
