Give Your CM9 Status Bar Some Steriods

Not too long ago, we gave some much deserved praise to a status bar makeover for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus created by XDA Forum Member rob43 and ported to the Motorola Atrix 4G by XDA Forum Member rickriego. While lucky owners of those two devices were able to enjoy the fruits of the developers’ labor, owners of other devices were unfortunately not so lucky.

Thankfully rob43, the original developer, has now updated his modification to work on practically any device running CyanogenMod 9. The modification adds various useful features and toggles to your notification bar including:

Transparency
Status Bar Layout
Date Format
Brightness Control
Horizontal Recent Panel
Clock Location
Power Widget Enhancements
Tabbed Layout

Installation is as easy as flashing a recovery-flashable update.zip to your rooted and CM9-powered Android device and running the associated configuration application. However, since this involves flashing through recovery, be sure to make a Nandroid backup first, just in case.

Visit the modification thread to get started.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
