Hello everyone!

So here we go:

1. Decompile the SystemUI.apk
2. Navigate to res/values/colors.xml
3. Find the following lines:



Quote:
<color name="system_ui_opaque_background">#ff000000</color>
<color name="system_ui_transparent_background">#99000000</color>
<color name="system_ui_light_background">#ff4d4d4d</color>
 


4. Replace them with the following lines:


Quote:
<color name="system_ui_opaque_background">#000000</color>
<color name="system_ui_transparent_background">#000000</color>
<color name="system_ui_light_background">#000000</color>
 


5. Save it.
6. Recompile and sign the apk.
7. Done!
