Default [Q] Transparent statusbar on KitKat

Hi, I have Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100 with official KitKat firmware, I have a friend and he have Galaxy S4 and I looked at is status bar and it's look nice and transparent, I really hope there is a way to do this to my Note.. the device is rooted!, I saw this and I really don't know nothing about how to compile and decompile apks, so I hope someone can help me do this or try to give my another way.. Thanks!. by the way sorry for my english I hope it's not so bad :P

Use touchwiz as default launcher you will have the transparent status bar.

It's supposed to be like that. Transparent status bar doesn't appear unless the developer implemented it into their app.

The default video player may be coded different in the s4 firmware compared to the note. You can force it with a xposed module though...
