    Hello, I have downloaded a theme and am using it, and it has a transparent statusbar.png. The problem is that when I am in some apps, it is completely black like so:

    But in other apps it is another colour like white or grey:

    (IGNORE THE RED CIRCLES SORRY)

    What can I do to make the status bar black in all apps? Is there something I am missing? It should be noted that when launching the app, the statusbar is still black, then when the app has fully loaded it changes colour.

    Clearly they made it only for the music player app. And not the other ones.

    Yes don't you think I realised that. And no your actually wrong you would think it was only for the music player but the black status bar is present in some other applications, as I said. My question isn't why. My question is HOW?

    As in how do I change it so it's for all apps? The statusbar.png is black, so where is the png of this other status bar?

    False, app info.plists tell what kind of status bar they want. Some apps tell the device they want none, the gray, or the black. You need to pass in the transparent one as the black one (so replace the file in the theme)

    Similar problem, I downloaded and am currently using the, I forgot what its called and my girl is messing w/ my iPT right now so I cant check, but its the status bar thingy that changes it to barbed wire and gives you like 13 diff. colors for the barbed wires, but it only comes up as whatever colored barb wire for the home page and goes back to the regular, joe-shmoe, status bar in any apps (whatever apps that the status bar stays showing in) is there a fix besides just losing the customization itself?
