Today, I’m here with a trick to customize your Status bar & navigation bar with a single click. Get any Android phone’s looks like Xperia, Nexus, Samsung even Apple IOS. I think this might be the simplest way to do this for the people who don’t want to end up bricking your phone. I personally use this on my phone as its Simple, clean & easy to apply.

First of all you need to root your Smartphone which will void your warranty, so think before proceeding with this customization process. You can root your smartphone with any suitable method for your device mentioned on web. Also, checkout some steps given :

After downloading install this App in your phone through normal procedure of installing a App. After Installing Open Xposed App & Grant Root Access. Click on framework, click on Install/Update & Reboot your phone.

1. This is my phone’s (I had this in 2014 :P) screenshot before installing all this App i.e without any customization. It’s running on Android ICS 4.0.4. It’s Nova launcher as you can see i have not customized anything & running stock ROM. The Status bar is of Stock Android & i don’t have navigation bar (I have Hadware buttons).

2. After you have installed Xposed App, launch the app & Goto Module Option available on the main screen op App. You will see a screen some what similar to this without the Greenify & Tinted Statusbar. Just check the box in front of Xstana module as you can see in the image given. After this reboot your phone.

3. After enabling the App as in Step 2. Open Xstana App that you have installed before. You would see a screen some what similar to this without the Arrows. I have made things clear in the image that the first option is for Selecting Status bar & second is for navigation bar. The navigation bar option works only if you have Navigation bar on screen as in Nexus, sony, LG, Titanium S5+ etc. This is the free version of App but it has enough option for us. The second image is of the Status bar option as you can see the Options it has so many Status bar themes which you can apply on your phone in just single click.

    Hi, its me, rjt.
    Did you know of the app called SoftkeyZ Root ?. It needs a rooted device, and it can change the individual buttons themselves. You can add your own image as a button. It also has an online library, along with coloured keys. It can't do anything on the Status Bar, though.
    Another thing, if you don't have software navigation bar, you can easily enable it by adding qemu.hw.mainkeys=0 in the build.prop file. Helps a lot when you have damaged your hardware navigation buttons.
