I've been looking for a way to do this for a while and I figured out a work around

What you will need
-xposed installer
-a module called tinted status bar


First install the module and reboot ... Now go into the module and go to settings UNCHECK respect kitkat api
... Then go to Google in the apps list and change all activities to number 0000000 in both nav and status bar.... The find the lock screen app and do the Same the result should be this



Ask me if you need any additional help.

This works for the Navigation Bar but not for the Notification Bar

This did the exact opposite of what I wanted it to do. Instead of removing the gradient, it removed the entire bar but kept the gradient (I'm using xblast to make my bars solid). I'll post a screenshot if I get a reply.

You haven't posted what you want to do in this thread, so I'm answering out of context.

This makes the bar transparent. That's what the first 00 means. You could replace that with ff to make it solid. If you're modifying with xblast too, you'll likely conflict.

This should remove the gradient under normal circumstances

Edit... I've tested and confirm the below works also with Nova launcher

1) installing the module allows the status bar colour to be determined by the app that is open. E.g. tapatalk with dark theme makes status bar Grey. Chrome makes it white. Nova makes it black

 







2) untick respect kitkat api is what stops kitkat enforcing the gradient.

3) select your launcher (for me, Nova) then set the status bar colour to what you like in "all activities". Most people just want rid of gradient but want to keep transparency so the 00000000 is selected. Otherwise it will default to whatever the launcher decides which for me was black

Let me elaborate: I used XBLAST to make my status and navigation bars solid (stat=orange, nav=white). However, the gradient that is usually there actually extends beyond the normal height of both bars, leaving a small amount of gradient visible on my wallpaper (whose top half is the same value orange and bottom is pure white). What I'm left with is (bottom up) white, grey, white, orange, dark orange, orange. What I want is to remove that left over gradient and make the bottom half of the entire screen white and the top half entirely orange.

Though, now that I think of it, I can get rid of XBLAST and just use this to remove the gradient, while extending my background to the very top and bottom of the screen. (as long as it actually removes the gradient)

But if you have a solution (besides that) I'd like to hear it as well.

Thanks for making me think.

It's only the "respect kitkat api" part you need. The problem is, this app colours the status bar according to the app that is in focus on your screen too. You can set default colours for when the app is not colouring the status bar so you could set that orange. You can also turn off 3rd party apps from changing the status bar colour.

The gradient itself shouldn't extend beyond the status bar so maybe you just need to use something other than xblast to colour your status bar?


PS... I never used this app before. I don't care about gradient but I love it now. It's like PA colours but I can back up the settings now.

1) I'm assuming the reason it was extending was because I used it along with xblast, and like you said they conflicted. I'm disabling it now to see what happens.

2a) I'm running PAC, (just installed this weekend) would it have PA colours in it? I haven't checked, but if I can do this without using xposed at all, that's even better.
2b) Since I'm running PAC and it's a nightly, I'm getting FCs every time I go into app settings (aka can't clear data that way), so it's getting kind of tricky to revert my settings for this app (again nightly, I have a bug where the text stays in the background while scrolling, making it difficult to read).

I'm about to leave work, I'll reply with how it went later.

I haven't used PA since JellyBean so I'm not sure if per app settings still exist. I assume they do.
