Default Guide to restore status and navigation bar

I have run into few people with this problem so I'm making this guide to help anyone with this problem. You may have to reset kindle in order to access a different app since there is no navigation bar.

1: First you have to have a file explorer installed. Go to amazon app store and download es file explorer ( you should be able to get there without status and navigation bar ) or use this version http://db.tt/hMeT0kvg.

2: Now download this adw launcher http://db.tt/ezZp558n it is an old free version but works with or without root.

3: Now go to your file explorer and go to your download folder and find the adw launcher apk file you just downloaded and install it.

4: Once installed open the launcher and go to the app drawer from there you should see a settings icon. Press on it to access your system menu.

WARNING: This next step involves a factory restore and you will loose anything on your kindle. Everything will need to be Re downloaded and installed. You will also have to re root if you had root before.

5: Now in the system settings you need to go to device then factory restore. You will need to have your battery level at a minimum of 40% or you'll have to wait till it reaches that before you can factory restore.

Once restored you should be good to go.

Please give thanks to those who help. Everyone here helps and devotes there time to each other. Especially the developers. A thanks goes along way and is much appreciated.

Have you tried disabling notifications from Gmail? That was the sole cause of my disappearing status bar.

I dont have this problem im just writing a guide for people that have had this problem. This isnt a gmail issues that has been fixed with the latest version of gmail i do believe. This is for people that have completely lost their navigation bar and cannot access settings menu or back out of apps or use home button. Thanks anyway. I appreciate any help people have to offer.
