Can someone give me a guide on what do I have to edit to change my Ace II's statusbar like the one on stock S4, BUT ONLY that partial-transparent style(with the small shadow on top), and being dark when entering some apps ?

Yes, but can you also tell me what to edit? I also want to learn
I know how to make it transparent, but don't know how to make it black in some apps, and transparent on lockscreen and desktop, and neither the partial shadow like in S4

It's normal but for me it isn't a big problem

I do this:
1. after decompile your systemUI, Go to SystemUI.apk\res\values and open drawables.xml and focus on this line and remove it:

<item type="drawable" name="status_bar_background">xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</item>

2. create file : \SystemUI.apk\res\drawable\status_bar_background.x ml and fill with this :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<gradient android:startColor="#00000000" android:endColor="#66000000" android:angle="@integer/status_bar_recents_bg_gradient_degrees" name="status_bar_background" />
</shape>

The thing is that in lockscreen the statusbar is not like this one from this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...-v2-0-t2859087. In lockscreen the statusbar's background is from desktop, not lockscreen wallpaper. Anyone knows how to fix this?
