Default Clear Status Bar - Like in Note 3


We users of Note1 is having status bar all the time at the Top and I want to change the following:

1] Change the color to black as it was originally back in Gingerbread... In JB they changed (Official stock) to dark grey!
2] Have Status Bar like in Note 3 ,i.e, all info. is still displayed but beneath the screen wallpaper, so that it blends.

I am not rooted, but all kinds of tricks and links will be appreciated.

1. Use a different launcher like Nova.
2. Modify the systemui.apk yourself by decompiling and editing.
3. Root, use xposed framework and modules to change the status bar to black, transparent, or whatever color you like.
