    It's not listed in the release notes, but I do believe that the transparent bar was added with this update. (Or, at least, I've seen it mentioned in the comments on some articles that it was added.)

    I use Nova Prime launcher and it has an option to make the status bar transparent.

    I just keep the badboy hidden. Even in apps, im usin Xposed Framework to keep it hidden. If i wana see it, i just pull it out from the top of the screen. It wastes too much space and is distracting imo. Apps seem so much better in true fullscreen :)

    Hello Dydric!
    Seeing as your status bar change seems to be related to the SW update for your device, I moved your thread here, to your device forum.
    Others may find this helpful too:)

    After trying various wallpapers (live and static), I found that nothing really makes my phone look as sleek as just a simple black background. I just created it in MS Paint and moved it to my gallery. It really makes the icons pop better than any other wallpaper.

    Anyway, I remember initially when I got my GS3, the status bar was black so it blended in well with the wallpaper. However, one of the updates changed it to a dark grey which I didn't like. After the 4.3 update, I thought the status bar was back to black. After reading your post, I tried different wallpapers and see that it is, in fact, transparent. I think it's cool that way. It makes it work well with whatever wallpaper you choose (but I'm going back to black). ;)
