I fixed it! I changed a setting known as "basekin" or something like that to "rockbox failsafe" and the orange bar now perfectly covers only the statusbar at the top and I can use rockfont 8. Also I found out I can use the "Rockbox failsafe" theme and while charging it will show me what % it is at and other useful things instead of just the usb connected icon. I even found out that by setting the playerskin or something like that I can use the part of the CORADO theme I loved with the best parts of the rockfont failsafe theme.
100% satisfied with my setup now, just had to read the manual and fiddle around with it on my own. Thanks for the help and patience!
