After the 4.3 update, the transparency for the navbar etc has been lost. I've checked a thread on this issue for the xperia z but I haven't found a solid answer to this problem.
What do I need to do? Stock 4.3 is disgustingly ugly in my opinion
Stock-based 4.3 is still better and more solid for me, I tried other custom Roms like CM and they are still buggy atm(hope they improve in time). They have low volume sound, random freezes, nav bar laggy, etc.
