Default [Q] [REQ]Transparent statusbar and navbar for nova launcher running on stock.569

Is there any way to make transparent statusbar and navbar for nova launcher running on stock.569 ?

I've tried xposed with gravitybox, seems not working with 4.3.

This issue exists with Xperia roms ever since they decided that the native apps could change the colour of the Navbar (Navbar colour syncs with the Walkman background hue). Perhaps third party launchers need to include a code to relay an alpha tint to the Navbar to make it transparent or translucent.

At the moment Tinted Status Bar works for Navbar transparency. You need to change the default hue for Navbar in settings. But the effects are transient and you need to launch a stock application like dealer or messaging to observe the effects. Once you reboot, the Navbar defaults to black.

I'll just wait for gravitybox to overcome this bug, thanks for the reply though.

DONATE TO ME
Sony has blocked non Sony apps from using the transparent status and navigation bars in the 4.3 firmware. I just contacted Kevin Barry, the developer of Nova Launcher in this regard and asked him whether the launcher needs an update to get it on 4.3 or has Sony restricted it? He said it's Sony.

So guys, this feature was available in the 4.2 firmware and it's really lovely. I wasn't using a custom launcher for that transparent bars, till I got to know about that option in Nova launcher. But, in 4.3 the option can't do anything unless the firmware gets a change for letting other apps use the transparent bars.

So I wanna ask, is there any way in which we can contact Sony and request them to stop this nonsense?

Please respond with an appropriate answer. Thank you!

I've tried a bunch of xposed modules and sadly nothing works fully. At best I managed to hide statusbar but no effect on navbar.
