Thread: Statusbar disappearing after closing an app

  1. #1
    Default Statusbar disappearing after closing an app
    How do I fix this problem? Whenever I go on an app then press home button to go back to home screen, the statusbar just disappears but to get it back I have to press the sleep button then slide to unlock again, it's pretty annoying...

    O ya I'm on a 3G iPhone on 3.0 OS unlocked & jailbroken on Windows

    Try changing your theme. I found that the themes that had a statusbar.png file in the root of the theme folder did this. I deleted that file and everything worked.

    Some said that this didn't work for them, but it did for me.

    Its because these strings in the info.plist file of the theme that you activated.

    <key>StatusBarMode</key>
    <string>1</string>

    <key>StatusBarContentsMode</key>
    <string>1</string>

    If you like the theme and want to keep it, there are 2 options:

    1) Delete the whole info.plist in that theme folder. But you will also loose setting for the calendar style.. if theres any.

    2) Just open the info.plist file in that theme and delete the strings above. All will works fine after.

    Good Luck

    ^^ that did not seem to help at all.
    I still loose the status bar after closing every app.

    I can't get this method to work for me either. I think it's because this solution is intended for a 3G phone, not the 3GS which is the device I'm having the issue with.

    Anyone have a solution to the vanishing status bar on 3GS besides disabling 'solid status bar' in winterboard? I really like having the solid status bar, but the disappearing act is really getting on my nerves, lol.

    I have a 3Gs, it worked for me.

    Hey Simtech still having trouble getting this to work. The file I'm modifying is Root\Library\Themes\Solid Status Bar.theme\info.plist Is this the right file? the contents of my info.plist doesn't seem to have a couple of those statements. Here's what my file looks like when I open it:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0"><dict>

    <key>StatusBarMode</key>
    <string>0</string>

    </dict></plist>

    Any modification I've done has fixed the disappearing, but I also lose the solid bar effect, which I really like and would like to get stable on my device. Could you point me in the right direction (maybe I'm modding the wrong file), or perhaps post a copy of the info.plist you got to work on your 3GS for this theme?

    Sorry Bro, not sure how all that works, we need someone with more knowledge to answer that one.

    Oh well. I guess I can live with the glitch for now. I wish I knew more about modding these files lol...

    Replace Solid Status Bar with Solid Status Bar Fix (search Cydia for it). That takes care of the disappearing status bar when running the original solid status bar.

    Default Editing plists
    You can edit the file with a plist editor (there are many free ones). It is essentially just an XML file, but the plist editors keep the file structure in tact.

    Anyway, this is definitely an issue for me, and I am not entirely sure what file to edit. I have tried editing a few, and removing the status bar and reference from the theme I made, but I still have the glitch.

    Anyone know all references to the status bar, and their locations so I can drill this down?

    I don't remember what it was that installed it, but there is some cydia app that installs a dialog in settings. It has 2 options: Override animation, and something else. Turning both off worked for me.

    Perhaps someone can be more specific here, as my iPod is off to repair a power issue, so I cannot check...

    OK - I figured it out: It is LockInfo, and it is the "Display Controller". Turn off "Animations" and "Override Animations" does the trick for me at least...
