nq7e2uXda user DocRambone has created a MOD that will make your Galaxy S4 status bar transparent. This is simply for a nicer visual aspect of your device. It will basically look like this:

In order to install this you will need to have a custom recovery installed. Then you will need to identify your phone’s model number: I9500 (Exynos) or I9505 (Qualcomm). That’s because each model has its own installer. This will work on both Odexed and Deodexed Roms.

DID YOU KNOW: Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

Before applying the mod, I recommend you do a Nandroid backup, so that you will be able to restore to the previous state of the ROM if you don’t like it.

You can download the files from here:

After this just place the downloaded file on your phone’s sd card and turn it off. Reboot your device in Recovery Mode and flash the .zip file using the ‘Install from sd card’ option. In the end just reboot the device and that’s it.
