Default [SOLVED] Disable KitKat translucent status bar

Hi, I would like to disable KitKat translucent statusbar, to leave it like Jelly Bean.

Thank you.

That's one of the more desirable features for most, but can't please em all. But without knowing what phone you have, what update it's on, if you have a custom rom or recovery, etc, there won't be a way to even point you in the right direction. There isn't a generic setting to just switch on or off to change this feature as it is themed in the SystemUi.apk and / or framework stuff, depending on what you have.
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s

Well, then that should be fairly easy, as it has the Theme Chooser built in. There are hundreds of themes that will work on that, including ones for CM10, and many have solid status bars. Another option, if you don't want to theme anything else would be using something like this:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/xpos...droid-t2316070

It needs the Xposed Framework:

Keep in mind, using ART instead of Dalvik runtime will cause Xposed not to work properly.

Thank you for the info, I will try it. I wrote this thread because there is a theme that didn't show properly because of the status bar.

I installed it, but I don't see any tweak related with that...

Ok, after you install Xposed, you have to install Gravity Box (KK). You can download from inside the Xposed Framework under Downloads. Once you have the framework and GB installed, you need to make sure under Modules that GB (KK) is switched on, then reboot. After you reboot, everything will be activated and you can go into the Gravity Box interface and under Status Bar Tweaks > Statusbar colors > You can click to enable and set your colors.

There are lots of other cool tweaks that GB has too. Not all of them are compatible with every set up, so make sure you remember what you are trying to enable, so you can disable if it doesn't work the way you are looking for.

If you want to disable GB, if it does not fit your needs, then you can just uninstall the app and reboot, or just uncheck the box in the Modules section of Xposed in case you want to try it again later.

If that doesn't work, there are some other modules that might, like the Xblast one (also in the Download repo for Xposed).

I did that, but just the icon color changes, but the statusbar is still translucent.

Thank you!!!
