Exclamation Hiding Status Bar

Hi all, I am trying to find a way to hide the system bar.

on my SGT 10.1, HoneyBar used to work (you can hide the bar by clicking a space specified by the application, with offset and introduction modes)

However, the same application does not work on my SGT 7.7

Anyone got other solutions?

Thanks, quite some good tool there (especially the hidden back button). Although there's quite a bit of lag after I tried to do the unhide action. (but it happens on HoneyBar as well).
