I have a Nexus 5 that it's NOT rooted and I don't intend to root it anytime soon, but everytime you swipe up from the bottom of the screen that damn Ring pops up (like the pie controls), I recently found a pie control that doesn't require root and I wanted to use it but the damn Ring comes up instead (i dont want the pie to be on the sides)

how do I turn that ring off and is there a way to Auto-Hide the Navigation Bar?

If you want to modify stock behaviour, you'll need to root. Gravitybox let's you disable the nav ring

There are multiple simple apps that help you do this. Some are more elegant, some are less.

One example:

I know there are better apps but I cannot recall their name at the moment.
