As the threads titles says, I am going to tell you how to enable S5 status bar on stock TW apps. This style status bar is enabled in some user apps but the app developer need already merge this feature in his app. In this mod statusbar's color is same color app's header/action bar.

Open bools.xml in framework-res\res\values

and search for

Code:
<bool name="config_ExtendActionBar">false</bool>
change it to

Code:
<bool name="config_ExtendActionBar">true</bool>
That's it. Compile and enjoy.

On stock apps



On some non-tw apps

here it's a icon theme downloaded from playstore

Suggest use tinted status bar Xposed module which is much easier with more options.
