[HOW TO] G2-Like Transparent Status Bar on LG Optimus G
So I was one of those who wanted this status bar to be completely transparent in stock rom but I was not able to find a proper way to make it transparent. Well, SystemUI editing did it but it caused the status bar to look really bad other than home screen.
I also have a G2 and I wanted my Optimus G to look like G2. So here is how(closest I get).
This method is tested on Epsilon V3. I assume it will work on other stock based roms as well.
You will need;
for transparent status bar
(Optional, for white clock)
Any launcher other than stock LGHome(Because It doesn't support the status bar to be transparent. It leaves the area behind the status bar black. So you won't get a transparent status bar but a black one instead. I recommend Nova or Apex.)
What to do:
-Install Xposed Framework(here
-Download Gravitybox Module from Xposed Installer(JB version, obviously.)
-Activate Gravitybox and open it
-Go to Transparency management and set the first two settings to 100%
Now you have a transparent status bar only in lockscreen and home screen. The status bar could remain black when it should be gray for a couple of minutes after boot, then it will fix itself.
You can also download Xblast Tools module from Xposed Installer and use it to change clock color to white. But remember, you also have to fix the notification panel colors as Xblast Tools breaks notification panel transparency(not status bar) when activated.
