So ATM I use Wanam Kit for one and only one thing. Which is to move my status bar clock to the left. I also have gravitybox installed and I'm on cyanogenmod 11 M9 lol but they all only give the option to hide the clock or center it. Now yesterday I saw someone talking about a way to edit something so you could permanently center the status bar clock. I was hoping someone could tell me how to do the same but to place it on the left. This way I can uninstall an entire xposed module pact with functions I don't use! Thanks

Decompile SystemUI/framework and modify it, or change it before building from source.

OK perfect but what would I be changing I wouldn't even know where to begin to start to look. I know some basic java from a couple years of college but I've never modded or coded for android yet.

Yup. I've done this mod myself before. Google "center clock mod android" and variations of the like and you'll find some tuts. It's going to be an XML file, probably status_bar.xml which I believe is in res/layout. If you're not familiar with decompiling, editing and recompiling APK files it's going to take you a while but it's worth to know how to do it anyway.
