Default [Q] Any mods for transparent status bar & removal of satus bar clock?

Sup everyone! Just got my N3 last Saturday but it ain't leaving my house until its fully set up and ready to go so I'll be still rocking my Hercules till then. At the moment my N3 is rooted, TWRPed, running DARTHSTALKER v5 (awesome ROM Jovy23!) and right now I'm in the middle of trying to set up a personal theme for it. The only issue I have is that I never been successful at decompiling any apks. I could never figure out what I'm doing wrong. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone has come across a mod for the N3 to make the top status bar transparent and to remove the status bar clock. The latter is something that has always bugged me since I had the Vibrant but I came across mods for that. I always have Beautiful Widgets on my homescreen so having a "second" clock on the status bar is pretty redundant for me (kinda annoys me to be exact). The only way to do those mods (besides xposed) I believe is to edit the status_bar_... XML files, in which you need to decompile the apk. Please let me know and if there is someone out there with the skills to do it and its willing to hook me up. I'm willing to pay accordingly. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

You can use the xposed frame work app along with the wanam module, there is a thread on this in the themes and app section.

We are working on that for our Vision X Note 3 rom, expected to be released this weekend, I will see if my theme guy can supply a trans bar mod.

Stay tuned.

Thx Quick. I kinda knew that already but I really want to stay away from xposed cuz it always interfered with whatever theme I had installed on my hercules (on ICS and JB). I believe xposed is good for a stock rooted non-themed ROM. It will be my last resort if I have to.

Yes! Yes!That"s exactly what I need deeznutz (onyachin). Do you have a link?

UPDATE: I found and flashed that 100% transparent status bar mod from foreverloco. I only get the dropdown to be transparent but not the actual status bar. Do I need to have his themed installed in order for the status bar to be transparent as well?

Figured it out. You have to be using the TW launcher for the mod to work completely. I was using ADW EX.
