Change the Connectivity Status Color in Jelly Bean ROMs
A few months have passed since the release of Android 4.4 KitKat. Hiding the network traffic indicator in the Quick Settings tiles was one of minor changes, at least compared to adding ART or making the status bar translucent. But not all of us use KitKat as a daily driver. After all, we recently reported that Jelly Bean is still on quite a few handsets.
If you are using Android 4.3, you can easily change the color of the connectivity status monitor thanks to Xposed Framework and XDA Forum Member d0gd3v, who created a module to change the color of triangles responsible for showing traffic. You can change the color to one of the following: black, blue, green, orange, red, white, yellow, or revert to the stock value.
The module should work on Jelly Bean- and ICS-based ROMs. And although this module was tested on CyanogenMod, it will likely work on other AOSP-derived ROMs as well. Obviously, your device must be rooted and have the newest version of Xposed Framework installed.
The module can be found in the original thread.

It's a slippery slope...
