Great module.. I was hoping the transparency thing can overwrite those activated within GravityBox.. Really don't like it when in Walkman, the status bar is in black and the nav bar is transparent.. Looking forward to further customizations, if there are any..

Love the module so far but the status bar isn't transparent while gravity box is enabled im not sure if it works when gravity box is disabled and also is it possible for you to mod the app drawer folders to follow the rows and colums for when its changed from the stock 4x5 layout.
Edit: another request if possible could you make the reflection more visible if the stage is hidden in the home drawer if your not sure what i mean i can send you a screenshot

Try to configure GravityBox as shown in the screenshots below and let me know if it helps.
