aww what a tease. miui still hasn't gotten themes fully working. Instead, now it just doesn't even ATTEMPT to theme the status bar at all. and there are no online themes for status bar either. themes work better than in the first v4 builds, but still not full. fock.
EDIT: I take it back. Themes do not work better. i only thought it applied to every icon at first but it does not still. and i am mad. bro. at those bastards over at rootzwiki for misleading me into thinking themes worked. xda all the way. miui will have its day once again. but not today fellers. not today.
