1. Decompile android.policy.jar and open android.policy\smali\com\android\internal\policy\impl\PhoneWindowManager.smali

Blue- and to find through search
Red - Remove
Green- Add
Code:
 .line 2552
    iget v0, p0, Lcom/android/internal/policy/impl/PhoneWindowManager;->mSystemTop:I

    iput v0, p1, Landroid/graphics/Rect;->[color="blue"]top:I[/color]

    .line 2553
    iget v0, p0, Lcom/android/internal/policy/impl/PhoneWindowManager;->mSystemRight:I

    iput v0, p1, Landroid/graphics/Rect;->[color="blue"]right:I[/color]

   .line 2554
    iget v0, p0, Lcom/android/internal/policy/impl/PhoneWindowManager;->mSystemBottom:I

    iput v0, p1, Landroid/graphics/Rect;->[color="blue"]bottom:I[/color]

    [color="red"] .line 2555
    iget-object v0, p0, Lcom/android/internal/policy/impl/PhoneWindowManager;->mStatusBar:Landroid/view/WindowManagerPolicy$WindowState;

    if-eqz v0, :cond_0

    iget-object v0, p0, Lcom/android/internal/policy/impl/PhoneWindowManager;->mStatusBar:Landroid/view/WindowManagerPolicy$WindowState;

    invoke-interface {v0}, Landroid/view/WindowManagerPolicy$WindowState;->getSurfaceLayer()I

    move-result v0

    .line 2557
    :goto_0
    return v0

    .line 2556
    :cond_0
    iget-object v0, p0, Lcom/android/internal/policy/impl/PhoneWindowManager;->mNavigationBar:Landroid/view/WindowManagerPolicy$WindowState;

    if-eqz v0, :cond_1

    iget-object v0, p0, Lcom/android/internal/policy/impl/PhoneWindowManager;->mNavigationBar:Landroid/view/WindowManagerPolicy$WindowState;

    invoke-interface {v0}, Landroid/view/WindowManagerPolicy$WindowState;->getSurfaceLayer()I

    move-result v0

    goto :goto_0

    .line 2557
    :cond_1
    const/4 v0, 0x0

    goto :goto_0[/color]
    [COLOR="SeaGreen"][B]const/4 v0, 0x0

    return v0[/B][/COLOR]
.end method
Compile android.policy.jar

2. Decompile SystemUI.apk and...
Open \SystemUI\res\values\drawables.xml
Code:
<item type="drawable" name="status_bar_background">#[B]5a[/B]000000</item>
5A - Transparency.

Open \SystemUI\res\layout\navigation_bar.xml and correct the same
Code:
<item type="drawable" name="status_bar_background">#[B]5a[/B]000000</item>

3. Open SystemUI\smali\com\android\systemui\statusbar\phone\PhoneStatusBar.smali and find "IIIII", near the code should be.
Green- Add, Red- Remove:
Code:
const/16 v3, 0x7e3

 const v4, 0x4800068

[B][COLOR="Green"] const/4 v5, -0x3[/COLOR][/B]

 move v2, v1

[COLOR="Red"] move v5, v1[/COLOR]

 invoke-direct/range {v0 .. v5}, Landroid/view/WindowManager$LayoutParams;-><init>([COLOR="Blue"]IIIII[/COLOR])V

Find "showNav" (second result in Notepad++) or "mPixelFormat:I", this code. Green- Add:
Code:
.line 417
 .end local v3 #[COLOR="Blue"]showNav[/COLOR]:Z
 :cond_1
 :goto_2
[COLOR="Green"] const/4 v5, -0x3[/COLOR] [B][I](or [COLOR="Green"]const/4 v9, -0x3[/COLOR] for Z)[/I][/B]

 iput v13, p0, Lcom/android/systemui/statusbar/phone/PhoneStatusBar;->[COLOR="Blue"]mPixelFormat:I[/COLOR]
Compile SystemUI.apk.

upd: 10.05.2013

For the transparency of the open status bar (where the switches and notification)
Step 1:
Open PhoneStatusBar.smali (from SystemUI.apk) and find "PhoneStatusBar$FastColorDrawable". Immediately after that string is different, with "setBackground". Remove it. This line can appear twice.


Step 2:
We will adjust the transparency in the folder SystemUI\res\layout.Open-head status bar- status_bar_expanded_header.xml
Code:
android:background="@drawable/notification_header_bg"
change to
Code:
android:background="#[B]5A[/B]000000"
It is found in the file twice. Do everywhere.

The file status_bar_expanded.xml do by analogy, replace the reference to the background image on the color code. In this file, the background transparency notifications.


Bugs:​
- Transparency navibar only on the desktop \ status bar everywhere
- Works on stock launcher \ Apex, but the others were not checked​
Do not say thanks, press thanks:angel:

    What value would you use to achieve around 10-20% transparency?

    Use this:
    attachment.php


    2,55 х (100-20%)=204
    Find 204 in image= CC
    This 20% transparency:angel:

    How make it completly transparent?
    5A=>00

    Can you just post modded android.policy.jar and systemui.apk? I'm having troubles with decompiling :(

    I'm not sure that these files from my smartphone you fit. (Sola)
    But ...
    Archive for CWM. Do not forget to backup! :)
