Default [REQ] G3 black status bar and no am/pm clock mod.

hey everyone, hopefully someone more capable than me can do this.

I am on Cloudy G3 ROM and would love to have a black status bar (as opposed to the gray gradient), as well as have the am/pm removed from the status bar clock.

if anyone can help me out, it would be awesome.....as far as Xposed modules go, i would rather stay away from them if I could...since I felt they always slowed down the phone a little, and my BT headset doesn't want to pair when its not on ART, so there's that as well.

hopefully someone can help...it would be greatly appreciated.
i can pull and upload any files necessary to get this done and I am comfortable manually placing files and changing permissions and such if you dont want to make a flashable .zip.
