How to implement stock status bar to a system where status bar doesn't exist
I'm using a Samsung Homesync. I'm rooted. In this device, the TouchWiz is implemented such that there's no classical tablet UI, but rather a different one. Other Launchers like Nova also work perfectly fine, however, the notification/status bar is implemented differently. You can see the notifications on the top right corner where there's just a number which counts them.
If I launch Nova, since there's no status bar and no special corner as implemented in the stock launcher, there's no notification window.
How can I make this device display the classical tablet or phone status bar, with running application icons, time, notifications, etc. that I can pull up or down to see details?
I tried replacing framework.* files from a Galaxy Tab3 ROM but system never boots if I do so. I also tried just replacing the SystemUI. With modified framework, system doesn't boot. With SystemUI change, it just crashes.
PS. Both roms Android 4.2.2, but different processors. There's no other TW ROM that matches this hardware. Only the Nexus 10 is matching but it's not Touchwiz. I have root but I can't change kernel since it's bootloader locked.
