Is there a way to get a transparent nav bar besides the xposed module that requires a ton of tweaking?

Replace "SystemUI.apk\res\drawable-xxhdpi\navigation_background_transparent.9.png" with a transparent one.

Edit: Do you mean fully transparent or the GEL Gradient NavBar?

The one that the xposed module does is nice but it requires padding on almost every app and it ranges from 0-256. "ain't nobody got time for that.

My gripe is the status bar . They added so much transparency to it they should have just left the damn thing transparent . Im running ViperOne and it has a setting that allows you to change it . Personally Id prefer to manually do it myself but its been a while since I messed with HTC and their frameworks / systemui . So slowly learning how to manipulate it in terms of changing things . I usually prefer to make these changes myself .

and you may need to change the transparency for the Lockscreen after you made the above change to the Transparent Nav Bar because it will look weird like this

Good info thanks, you helped me track down a couple of files that I was looking for.
A question if I may, do you know what file(s) are putting that annoying line between the dock and the navbar ?

Open the files in an image editor and erase the image leaving a transparent image or create new transparent images of the same sizes and replace the existing with the new.

Thank you. But where is the xx.apk/res/xxhdpi located? And what image editor would you suggest?

Edited: never mind. I'm dumb.

SystemUI.apk, HtcLockscreen.apk and Prism.apk are located in system/priv-app/
and if you have com.htc.launcher-x.apk, it is located in data/app/

This is my favorite tool to work with 9patch images : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1272513
download link on page 2.

(I got this from other thread on xda but can't find it now)

Oh okay, I thought I could do it on the phone. Man this is so much for me. Haha. I wish I could find a flashable zip or modded apk. Time to stop being lazy
