Omega Status Bar for Greater Features and Customization
It’s not a crazy thought to think that most of us spend a fair amount of time looking at either the status bar or notification drawer. It goes without saying then that you probably want to tweak these areas to suit the way you use your device. While some custom ROMs contain features to do this, you may not wish to run a different ROM for a simple tweak or that tweak simply may not be available.
