Whats the difference between this and simply changing the statusbar_bg.png or stat_bar_bg.png in systemui.apk directly from either an app like ninjamorph or by simply using apk tool?

That was my bad coz thats in framework-res.apk , but instead of talking like that you couldve simply answered my question. I know a lot about theming and have made themes for myself and since ive been out ofall of this work so i forgot. Using the vrtheme template is making a mod is easy but you can change the bg by editing the tw_status_bar_expanded.xml in the layout folder. Its good that you are making such mods available to everyone. But anyways , i still didnt get the answer i was looking for.

Well, sorry coz i was bad in explaining. I just replied in hurry and if you know all theming and all for our s duos then this question for "simply changing the statusbar_bg.png or stat_bar_bg.png in systemui.apk or framework-res.apk" whatever has no mean at all from you.

Well my friend, i was meant that there is no such file in any of apk file having such image file for background of notification panel.
And mate only systemui can have such files for status bar and its panels. Neither in framework-res.apk or not any other.

Explanation in short
What i did is:
As you have seen my this thread
Enabling/modding Transparency

Then in this part 'Now for making StatusBar Expanded/Notification Background transparent.'

I just changed the value "#xxxxxxxx" to "@drawable/statusbar_bg".
In files 'tw_status_bar_tracking.xml' and 'tw_status_bar_tracking_dual.xml

but not 'tw_status_bar_expanded.xml'

Not id

I changed '#xxxxxxxx' (color value) to @drawable/statusbar_bg" (source of image)

where @drawable/statusbar_bg" means @drawable-hdpi/statusbar_bg.png
