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!
