I made a tutorial on how to install apktool and java jdk, and how to use those to theme the status bar. The tutorial is for linux users, although you can probably tweak it for Windows or OSX. I hope this is helpful to someone. Enjoy!
Wow that looks so amazing. I can't get over how clean it looks lol.
It's based off this, which was designed for the Nexus 4 with Nova Launcher, but I had to do a lot of modifications in Photoshop to make it work for our lower resolution device and with Apex Launcher instead. I also wanted a third row of apps, and didn't want the navbar, so I think it worked out well
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
