On Ionic 1 you need to:

Install Plugin:

`ionic plugin add https://github.com/ekuwang/cordova-plugin-statusbar.git`

Go to file MainActivity.java and paste:

import android.os.Build; import android.util.Log; import android.view.Window; import android.graphics.Color; import android.view.View;

In the same file BETWEEN “super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);” AND “loadUrl(launchUrl);”, paste this:

if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.LOLLIPOP) {
getWindow().getDecorView().setSystemUiVisibility(
        View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_LAYOUT_FULLSCREEN |
                View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_LAYOUT_STABLE);
//Status bar color, set to whatever opacity/color you want

getWindow().setStatusBarColor(Color.TRANSPARENT); }

and finally, on App.js after first “if”, remove the following:

if(window.StatusBar)

and paste:

if (window.statusbarTransparent) { statusbarTransparent.enable(); }

that’s it ˆ-ˆ
