Why don't you simply update your phone to android 4.3 you will get transparent statusbar on stock firmware and you will be able to root it again too.

You can update with Kies or Odin, Odin you can get from my signature, 4.3 firmware from Sammobile,com

If you want full notification background transparency on you phone you will need to do that yourself because the ones on XDA will be part of themed stock or custom roms, there are e few things that need to be changed in the SystemUI.apk to make transparent notification panels.

The way you want it to look is your personal choice but would suggest you don't set it to 100% transparent you should keep some shading..
