You could always try Nova Launcher, pretty sure that has the gradient status bar. That would be easier than modifying the system ui.

Well, then, you need to learn to program it yourself.

Hope you saved a copy of the original file. Yeah, I've tried dabbling with system files in the past, but had similar results. You have to get pretty seriously into it, and there's a lot to learn. Gives you an appreciation for what the developers actually do.

Developers usually do what they are interested in, rather than what someone else is interested in. I doubt if anyone with the skill to do that is still using or interested in this phone.
