Installation:

* On KitKat, while this application works, it is better to use the application 'Immersive Mode' by the same author.

* On HC and ICS, root is NOT required!

* On JB (devices bought in 2013), ROOT IS REQUIRED.

* More functionality is available on rooted devices (back/home/recent/menu)

Usage:

* First click on icon with two arrows to show notification, then on notification to hide the system bar.

* Tapping the bottom of the screen will reshow the system bar

Features:

* Hiding/restoring systembar at any time, enables fullscreen mode.

* Different options to reshow the systembar.

* Option to reshow systembar on screen off.

* Option to never reshow systembar (kiosk mode).

* Option to hide the systembar from the notification area.

* Option to not show the icon in the notification area, while still being able to hide the systembar from the notification area. (Only on JB and up)

* Invisible button to control navigation on device (back button).

* Popup Navigation Bar to control navigation while bottom bar is hidden.

* Availability to show the recent apps (only on JB for now)

* Option to hide systembar at boot time.

* Tasker/Locale scripting integration: this program registers itself as a locale plug-in.

Current bugs:

* Problems with phones like Nexus 4 when receiving calls or when alarm rings while systembar is hidden.

* If you do an OTA update, most devices will lose root, HideBar will stop working till you root the device again.

* Recent applications currently only works with Jelly Bean.

Devices:

* Devices that contain the systembar or navigation bar (bar at bottom of screen).

* Supports Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean.

* Newer Nexus devices (Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10)

* Most tablets and Google TV devices. Also some phones (must contain bar at bottom).

 What's New

Version 2.6 (2 February 2014)

* Will now hide systembar on more devices (notable Samsung devices, thanks Silvio)

* Added switch in settings screen to hide systembar strait away

* Improved notification icon (thanks Birgit)

This version contains a lot of 'under the hood' improvements, this will help me a lot to make more improvements in the future. If there is any regression on your device or for your use case, let me know on [email protected]
