This is what I'm looking for!
But, my Note 2 should be rooted first, right?

Do you know the way to copy your SystemUI.apk from system and put it back after recompiling without rooting?

Now I've done decompiling..

1. You should decompile SystemUI.apk DONE

2. Open /SystemUI/res/layout/tw_super_status_bar.xml and change android:background to 100% transparent: DONE

3. Save /SystemUI/res/layout/tw_super_status_bar.xml DONE

4. Open /SystemUI/res/values/drawables.xml and edit this line to get transparency you need, for example, 100% transparent:

I can't find /SystemUI/res/values/drawables.xml there are no values folder.. there are only values-ar-land, values-gl, values-hu, values-in, values-sw360dp, values-sw600dp, values-sw600dp-land, values-uk, values-vi-port, and values-zh-rCN.. what should I do?

-------------------edit--------------------------

now I've found values folder, but I can't find drawables.xml
