I started playing with the SystemUI.apk, first because with the last official ROM of my JiayuG4A the status bar became trasparent (and i hated that thing) then because now i want to try a couple of things to edit further my smartphone (JB 4.2.2)

Here's the question:
I would like to create two different BackGround for my StatusBar, on HomeScreen view, and on InApp view:
Like, when I'm working on the desktop, on the drawer (maybe) etc, there should be a particular background
while, when I'm with an App opened (the browser, the messages, whatever) there should be another background.

Looking on the internet and inside SystemUI/res/Layout i thought this:
Gemini_Super_Status_Bar.xml & Super_Status_Bar.xml are used to define the StatusBar for the HomeScreen view
Gemini_Status_Bar.xml & Status_Bar.xml are used to define the StatusBar for the InApp view

So i made this changes:
[B]SystemUI/res/drawable/ gradient_sb.xml
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape android:shape="rectangle"
  xmlns:android="there's a link here, i can't post it XD">
    <gradient
      android:startColor="#ff000000"
      android:endColor="#44000000"
      android:angle="270.0"
      android:centerColor="#bb000000" />
</shape>
SystemUI/res/layout/ gemini_super_status_bar.xml & super_status_bar.xml
Code:
android:background="@drawable/gradient_sb"
SystemUI/res/layout/ gemini_status_bar.xml & status_bar.xml
Code:
android:background="#ff000000"
I checked the apk a couple of times before putting it inside the system/app folder of my device. So i'm sure that these changes have been made.
But now the StatusBar appears to be always black and without gradient.
Is there something i missed, something i need to do to make this changes work?
Help please!!
