same here, ive updated to 4.4 and it just annoyed me :|. maybe its just me being OCD but that small change was just horrible.
my current temp solution is just flashing a different rom. personally i liked the stock rom and the only one closest to stock was the arrow rom which was based on TW 4.3.
Note: theres different versions for different models
if theres a better rom based on TW, then please let me know.(i couldnt find the original 4.3 rom to downgrade)
