Default Transparent Status Bar Ascend y300

Hello guys, as you can read from the title i would really like to have on my phone the transparent status bar, like the nexus 5. I tried some different apps like xposed + gravity box or xblast but the bar is transparent just on the home screen and in the app drawer, when i open an app it become black again. I've installed the carbonrom on my phone (it's kitkat based). I hope someone can help me with that little problem ^^ and sorry i didnt found the y300 section on the forum.

The translucent status bar is only translucent if the application supports it. Ad you can see above on my Nexus 5 it's black.

This is my music player, it supports translucent status bar.



If you wish to have this translucent feature in everything. Then use an closed module called "Tinted Status Bar".

I already tried this xposed module and it's cool but it need this millisecond to adapt the current app, and it's kind of annoying for me. I will thank you anyway now i understood the problem ^^ if i find a better method i can write here

@Zokom Yeah it does get a bit annoying for a few with that delay.
