Hi Gurus!

I need help on making my status bar transparent. I'm using DDKQ8 Rom from Samfirmware and have rooted it.
I tried to decompile the systemui.apk using the APK multitool and edited the status_bar.xml by changing the background from android:background="#ff000000" to android:background="#00000000". After modifying it and compiling it again and push the systemui.apk to /system/app. I also changed permission and rebooted phone. The phone rebooted ok but the status bar becomes garbled and not able to see the status icons.

Any advise what went wrong? Is this rom DDKQ8 not able to support status_bar transparency? I have attached my systemui.apk. I hope somebody can help me out.
