Reloaded ICS is a modification for CM9 ROMs that lets you customize your CM9 ROM-running Android phone with tons of options and changeable settings. It lets you tweak your status bar to customize it to your tastes. Also, it’s a universal modification, so it should work on any device that has CM9 installed, adding more features to the already inbuilt Cyanogenmod settings mod.

Here’s a look at the features of the Reloaded ICS modification:

  • Transparency
  • Status Bar Layout
  • Date Format
  • Brightness Control
  • Horizontal Recent Panel
  • Clock Location
The mod has been tested on the following devices running CM9, but should work with other devices as well:
  • Motorola Atrix
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus
  • Samsung Galaxy S
  • Samsung Galaxy S2
  • Motorola Defy

Keep in mind that this mod is only for CM9 ROMs, so please do not attempt to try it on other ROMs, even if they are based on Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0.

      Do you see the reloaded app in Application drawer? Check that out, there will be settings to enable the statusbar. And which launcher are you using, even a launcher can do that, or you may have done it by error.
