Transparent status bar on ALL apps on Android Lollipop with Lolistat!

Transparent status bar is really an amazing step pushing forward the UI limits of Android. Firstly it was released when the Android Kitkat came out and it's been a hit for many UI Android designers as the transparent (or translucent, tinted, call it how you want) status bar looks really really nice and it lets the system blend fully with the app.

Unfortunately, not many developers have decided to implement this feature on their apps, thus it's not used as much as it should be.
However, there's a way to get this tinted status bar working on all apps. But how can this be done without modyfing the system files? Xposed Framework.

Lolistat is designed to work on Android Lollipop devices only, if you have older version of Android, please kindly check THIS video to get your tinted status bar working!

You need to have Xposed Framework installed on your device. If you don't have it or don't even what this is, please follow this thread:

  1. Download Lolistat from Xposed directory
  2. Install the app.
  3. Enable the Xposed module 
  4. Reboot
  5. woho!

Before and after. This. On all apps. Enjoy.
