Default Transparent navigation and status bars in all apps.

Hi all I've had my g2 for about 2 days now and I'm really loving it. The only thing I don't like about it is that I cannot get the status and navigation bars to be transparent in all apps. On my s4 I was able to get the status bar to be transparent all the time. Does anyone know how to make both the status and navigation bar transparent on the g2?

You don't. The apps have to specifically allow for transparencies. And only Android 4.4 has an official call method.

So it won't happen on stock.

Unofficially, root, install G2 Xposed, and check it out! This is what you need.
