Default 4.4 KitKat launcher - statusbar and bottom are solid black instead of transparent

Hi everyone!
Yesterday i flashed the latest nightly of cm11 and omnirom to my friends S4 and in both i faced the same problem.

In the kitkat launcher the statusbar and the bottom of the screen are transparent but in both roms it was solid black.
Why is that? Is it a bug or did i do something wrong?

In my Galaxy Nexus statusbar and the bottom are transparent as it should.

How can i fix it?

they should be transparent and maybe the launcher may be incompatible on these roms
try it on another rom {a 4.2 one or 4.3 } and see if you have the same problem

Also, you could try a 3rd party launcher that supports the transparent status bar and see if it works or not. If it does, something is wrong with the launcher.

I do believe some early builds of custom roms did not have the transparent status bar ability yet, so you may want to try a newer build as well.
