Hi, I would like to disable KitKat translucent statusbar, to leave it like Jelly Bean.

Thank you.

That's one of the more desirable features for most, but can't please em all. But without knowing what phone you have, what update it's on, if you have a custom rom or recovery, etc, there won't be a way to even point you in the right direction. There isn't a generic setting to just switch on or off to change this feature as it is themed in the SystemUi.apk and / or framework stuff, depending on what you have.

I have a Samsung Galaxy SII SGH-i777 with CM11 (unofficial) and CWM 6.0.4.7.

Well, then that should be fairly easy, as it has the Theme Chooser built in. There are hundreds of themes that will work on that, including ones for CM10, and many have solid status bars. Another option, if you don't want to theme anything else would be using something like this:

It needs the Xposed Framework:

Keep in mind, using ART instead of Dalvik runtime will cause Xposed not to work properly.

Thank you for the info, I will try it. I wrote this thread because there is a theme that didn't show properly because of the status bar.

I installed it, but I don't see any tweak related with that...

Yea, sorry, I guess mine is doing the same thing. I just tried the Xblast Tools though, and that one worked for me.[COLOR="Silver"]



Edit: sorry, wrote ^ that before I saw you figured it out. Glad all is well now.
