You can do the trick using two programs (they are paid and totally worth the money) + ROOT (rooting is very important for them to work). Of course you can try other programs. Im not advertising. Im just giving an idea.

Download 'GMD hide bar' to have control over the notification and status bar at your will. And also download 'Virtual Button Bar' to replace the notification bars.

When I want to read my ebooks or play some games I use these 2 programs and they always work pretty well.

Also, Virtual Button Bar has a really nice function that is: The button controls stay hidden on the position you want of the screen and then, if you just pass your finger in front of the light sensor (dont even need to touch the screen), they appear.

Its really convenient and awesome!

to remove the nav bar-

decompile either framework-res, or system.ui depends on your rom.

once decompiled go into Res->Values->dimens.xml

for the rom im on its line 14, 15, and 16. replace the x.x dips to 0.0dips to remove the navi bar completely.
save the .xml and then recompile framework-res or system.ui and replace your current one with the new apk

if your going to do this make sure your using lmt, or some type of other way to use home, and back, etc

the lines your changing should say
<dimen name="navigation_bar_height">0.0dip</dimen>
<dimen name="navigation_bar_height_landscape">0.0dip</dimen>
<dimen name="navigation_bar_width">0.0dip</dimen>

Does the xml edit require a deodexed rom to work? Because I tried this on stock and the navbar is still there. Nothing changed.

Default I discovered another Program

But you need ROOT. Its called Full!screen (download in google play). It hides de notification bar and also provides small buttons in the corners of the screen. Its very nice!

Tried all of these (gmd/full!screen) only issue I have is that the notification shade is disabled when in use so I can't check why my phone is blinking until I disable it every time.
