Translucent Status Bar

view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – Hey themers: I'm just getting acquainted with making small modifications to the system and am currently working from a stock 4.0.4 LPL based ROM. I would like to implement a 50% translucent effect on the TW status bar. I've decompiled SystemUI.apk many different ways - as a non-system app, an app w/ dependencies (both framework-res.apk and twframework-res.apk), I've recompiled without any issues at all and immediately de-compiled to make sure my changes "stick", and they do. I then throw them into a flashable zip, wipe cache/dalvik, flash the zip and fix permissions, no go. (HowTos)
