Talking [ROOT] Transparent Status bar for Galaxy Ace ii I8160

*Requires Root*

FROM:


TO:


BEFORE YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT DOING THIS>>> Backup your SystemUI.apk file located under <root>\system\app\
I am not to be held responsible if the phone melts in your hand for some unknown reason or causes your wife to leave you.

Simply copy this SystemUI.apk to your phones SD card, then use file explorer on the phone (I use ES File Explorer) to copy the APK to <root>\system\app\ and OVERWRITE your existing SystemUI.apk (Make sure you back up your original SystemUI.apk!!!!)

Phone will semi-crash, SystemUI will stop working and you will need to reboot to apply the change. You may have to dismiss the force-close message 5 or 6 times as it's very persistent. Done!

Enjoy.

cs3-3.4pda.to/3122541.png We had to put in it! It would be as S4.
It behaves as S4? In launcher semi-transparent, and the black strip in the applications?

Yup, hence the word "transparent". You still got icons though right?
