Xda 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. 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:
What's my model number?
There are several ways to locate your model number:
- Option 1
- On your device, go to Settings, then "About device" and scroll down to "Model number"
- Option 2
- Often times you can view the model number inside the device, by removing the battery
- Option 3
- Using Samsung's model/serial number location tool
