On the outline that you are using for that page the header section has the class "g-home" on it which is what forces the background of the header section to be white. So remove that class from the section on the layout of your outline.
To you "disappearing" point - I did explain why. It will be because the module positions that the roksprockets (etc) are assigned to do not appear on the layout of the outline that you are using. If you still need the module positions then you need to ensure that they are present on the outline that you are using.
Honestly, it's not all new. There were always a "particles" and a "positions" outlines - all we did is stop the demo using the "positions" outline with the roksrpocket modules.
