In this ROM you can bind status bar toggling to my app custom gesture as shortcut.
Summary: if you just want to hide status bar on ICS then custom Rom or Mod will be better.
Thank you!! Using Simple Image Wallpaper Free (which I already had installed but had never used) worked perfectly by setting it through the Live Wallpaper selector!! Now I can hide the Status Bar as I wanted using this workaround. I have rooted but not unlocked yet, still wishful thinking that someone will figure out a way with out going through Asus. I may go ahead an unlock though soon, as I purchased extended warranty through Best Buy so if anything breaks I don't have to go through Asus for repair anyway. Again, thanks for all your time and support. Even though I can do everything that I want with the free version, I will be buying the paid version now just to show my support!!
