Default Gradient Navigation bar with 3rd Party Launcher

Seems like a weird "problem" for me. I like Nova very much and configured Blinkfeed as a swipe gesture in it. Thats enough for my Sense needs.
But the inbuilt gradient just works with Prism Launcher / Blinkfeed, in Nova I have a half transparent black background most of the time, but sometimes it is a gradient.

Sometimes (and how I would like to have it) is the first atteched picture. Most of the time (and how I don't like it) is the second picture.


Does anyone have a 3rd Party Launcher like Nova running with gradient navigation bar? What could be my problem?

Thanks!

Today I deactivated / deinstalled everything that could interfere the gradient navigation bar (Xposed etc.), still no luck.

I hate this semi-transparent BG!

The solution is in the link in the Post above yours.

- Do a backup
- Check if there is an image called "navigation_background_transparent.9.png" in /res/drawable-xxhdpi/ inside SystemUI.apk, which is NOT gradient but fullcolored
- Replace it with the image attached
- Push modified SystemUI.apk back to System
- Wipe cache/dalvik and Reboot
