5. In the developer options you now find "Show System UI tuner ". Enable the option

6. Return to the Settings Overview of Android 6.0 Marshmallow back. You can find here a new menu item called: "System Ui Tuner"

7. With this mode you can now modify the status bar in Android Marshmallow 6.0.

hey guys,,the post worked for me... for those who are still not getting the system ui tuner option after enabling the developer options - most of the options will come under developer options (below printing in advanced options) . For those who stumbled on to this thread looking to enable battery digital data on the status bar - by doin the above steps - simply go to advanced settings and manage battery option - to activate diffrnt styles of digital battery status to show on status bar. Hope this helps.

This doesn't work for T mobile s7 edge. I can activate developer mode as instructed, but system ui doesn't show up in developer menu.

Additionally I tried the method of opening the quick edit menu in the status bar and holding down the settings dice.

Does unlocking system UI void Verizon warranty?

This does not work for the new update 6.0.1 on the S6 G920I. Infact "Show System UI tuner" does not appear in Developer options.
Any other Suggestions ?
Looks like Samsung has permanently disabled this feature for an unknown reason. Probably clashes with some other UI feature and they found the most convenient way of preventing a back lash by disabling the feature itself. "NO SEE NO ASK"

Sadly doesn't work for Samsung S6Edge+ :( So I just have to turn off the Power Saving tool to remove the background color of the notification bar.
