[Q] Transparent homescreen statusbar for CM10 Jelly Bean 4.1.2 based rom?

Hi all!
I've recently installed a CM10 Jelly Bean 4.1.2 based rom on my HTC Desire GSM: and I've been trying to figure out how to make the homescreen statusbar transparent, I've searched the web and these forums and tried different methods, but none of them have worked out so far, some because they're meant for previous Android OS versions and others because they're for specific moded roms (eg. ).

So, my question is, does anyone know how to make the Statusbar (where the battery, signal, wifi indicators, etc are located) tranparent/semi-transparent on Jelly Bean..or more specifically CyanogenMod v10? What system files need to be modified (XML's, PNG's, APK's)?

If someone comes up with a working solution, it would be great to create a brief guide on how to achive it, I wouldn't mind doing it myself, as I'm sure there's other people trying to figure out the same....For me it's hard to believe that such a simple yet visually important tweak hasn't yet been figured out (aparantely) for one of the latest OS versions.

Thanks in advance!!
