Flash from recovery, both odexed and deodex roms supported.

Note: Latest Nova beta gives transparent statusbar without any mod.

1: Download the correct version: 9500 or 9505
2: Place the zip on internal/external sd
3: Reboot into recovery
4: Flash zip
5: Reboot

The zip will remove any systemui.odex file if its present in the system/app folder.

(Do it yourself):

1: Use apk-tools to decompile SystemUI.apk

2: If you get an error in decompiling the apk: remove the
"system_bar_settings_view.xml" and "system_bar_notification_panel_title.xml" from the layout folder
(SystemUI.apk\res\layout\). Do not forget to add the files back after compiled the modded the statusbar.

3: Go to the decompiled folder \Apk Manager\projects\SystemUI.apk\res\values

4: Open drawables.xml with Notepad++

5: Change
Code:
<item type="drawable" name="status_bar_background">#ff1e1e1e</item>
to

100 % transparent :
Code:
<item type="drawable" name="status_bar_background">#00000000</item>
80% transparent :
Code:
<item type="drawable" name="status_bar_background">#88000000</item>
6: Compile the apk, add the 2 files back if you removed them


7: Add the apk to the updater zip.



Update: more on setting the transpancy:

A good software to get the color codes:

http://download.cnet.com/ARGB-To-Hex...-10565877.html

Some numbers:

#00000000 - black with 100% transparency

#3F000000 - black with 75% transparency

#7F000000 - black with 50% transparency

#BF000000 - black with 25% transparency








Cred : Cybdani for the 9505 mod

You should be able to use one of the systemui files from 1st post. Delete the associated odex file first, in system/app folder.
