[Request] Taller status bar

Oi, mates.

So, as we all know, the OP6T has a notch. Issue with it compared to Google's native software implementation is that the status bar mostly behaves like the notch isn't there.

If we take a look at the developer options, we can simulate a display cutout with the "Double display cutout" which realigns the status bar and gives it more breathing space. Unfortunately, that also makes the notch bigger as the OS simulates the bigger notch.

I've attached screenshots of both of the layouts.

If someone could possibly modify the layout to use a layout made for notches, I'd really really appreciate it. I believe this can be achieved via a substratum theme or a Magisk module that utilises the OOS.

If I'm being unclear or you're wondering something regarding the simulated notch (maybe using OSS to patch out the black bar so it's invisible?) Then please let me know and I'll try to elaborate.

Thank you in advance and I'm really hoping someone will fullfil the request.

The status bar is already tall enough to accommodate the notch, what exactly are you asking for?

I'm asking for an option to use the stock AOSP layout.

It might be nice if it also aligned with the end of the corner radius, as at the moment there's still a bit of dispay curve below the status bar and it kind of looks sloppy.

The AOSP implementation is to make the status bar as tall as the notch, which is what they are currently doing. I don’t see what you think the benefit will be if extra space is added.

I didn't ask for your preference. I am requesting a mod to adjust it to my preference.

Why would you want the status bar Taller then the notch. Makes no sense

I did. Since your the only person that would want something weird like that I very much doubt someone is going to take the time to make a useless mod

I think you're being 100% unclear as to what benefit what your asking for even has. Out of the box implementation is just fine in mine and probably nearly everyone but yourself book. If you want someone to go out of their way to make something you might want to give an actual use case for what your asking for or it's unlikely anyone will even try. Just my 2 cents though.
