So I damaged my phone screen and got a non-original screen as a replacement. The new screen-space is not as tall and so the top part of the status bar is getting cropped off. Is there a way for me to fix this? Probably something that could decrease the screen space my ROM is using by a few pixels?

Wich phone model and software version are you running ?

You may try changin the dpi to make it fit in , some phones have it inside the developer settings

I am using an Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1. Android 12 EvolutionX ROM. I will try searching the Developer Options.

EDIT: I did mess up my device and get it into a boot loop by trying to change the display cutout. It's fixed now. But yeah I couldn't find a relevant option. Would be really great if you could give me a bit more precise solution.

The system component that draws the statusbar is SystemUI.apk and, inside it, you will find the images (all the "/res/drawable/sec_stat_sys_*.spr" files) and several XML files that coordinate the overall layout.

I sort of understand what you're saying but this would mean some experimentation and since I don't have a backup device. I don't think with my present schedule I'll be able to spend time experimenting with it. Can you provide some more precise help? Is there no option to tweak things?
