Thread: Setting Status bar to always be Black Opaque

  1. #1
    Default Setting Status bar to always be Black Opaque
    Which info.plist's would i need to add the
    "<key>UIStatusBarStyle</key>"
    "<string>UIStatusBarStyleOpaqueBlack</string>"
    to so that when ever i open/change to mobile settings or safari or any app really the springboard-
    status bar would never change when opening said apps?

    OR... even how to set the Black Opaque status bar as the default bar instead of the grey one

    Please reply And thank you in advance

    I'm actually interested in this, too. Started looking into this.

    From what I've found so far, the easiest way would probably be to just skin the light grey bar, so that it looks just like the black one. I don't think you can actually set it to always use the black one. You would have to edit every single app, and who wants to do that :P

    They have been renamed to Silver_Base.png, Black_Base.png and Translucent_Base.png.

    I actually want to change my font color in the status bar. The only way I have found is to edit every single app with the UIStatusBarStyle key and I definitely do not want to do that!

    FYI, just toss this into your UIImages folder instead. Same result.
