Question [Q] A Navbar Question...

I've been reading the M8 forums for a while since I got my HTC One (M8), and finally plucked up the courage to unlock the bootloader, root, get s-off, and perform the GPE conversion.

This went fine, and the phone works brilliantly, except I've noticed something regarding the navbar. If I set a live wallpaper, I get a nice shiny transparent navbar. If I set a static image as the wallpaper, however, then it's a black navbar for me.

It's more of an annoyance than anything, but given the screenshots I've seen here on XDA, I know it should be possible to have a transparent navbar with a static wallpaper.

Any ideas, guys?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
