I've managed to finally edit all the files I need (status_bar.xml, super_status_bar.xml, tw_statusbar.xml, tw_super_status_bar.xml, and drawables.xml), changing all background values to #00000000. I successfully compiled the new apk, copied the res folder, classes.dex, and resources.arsc back to the original systemui.apk.. Copied the file to the system/app folder and changed the permission to rw-r--r-- and rebooted. When it reboots, the status bar is transparent. However, once I change my wallpaper, the status bar is no longer transparent.
Did I do everything right? Is there a step that I am missing? I'm about to say screw it and just live with things the way they are.

I cannot get the status bar to become transparent when I used tweakbox. It doesn't stick.
