Since we've been given a discussion/support thread, I thought I would re-post this here, in the hopes of finding an answer. I added some details/notes on what I've tried so far as well:

OK, I'll bite. I've been fiddling around with the Per-App settings on SystemUI and I can't for the life of me get my i747 to display TabletUI. I can get Chrome and Email (the Exchange client) into tablet mode just fine, but I really want the main screen in TabletUI.
I've force stopped SystemUI and even rebooted after every settings change, and while I can see the DPI/resolution changes take effect, the checkbox in the Tablet seems to have no effect whatsoever.
I updated to the 20130125 nightly, which added a setting for "UI Mode" under ROM Control\General UI, which is meant for Navbar control. If I put that in TabletUI, the status bar disappears from the top of the screen and notifications appear at the bottom of the screen (albeit of a very not-right resolution/DPI) but the rest of the status bar is nowhere to be found. I've tried various DPI settings from 140 - 300, and both of the higher-end screen sizes. I've also changed DPI/resolution/Tablet checkbox on my launchers, both Trebuchet and Apex (I normally use Apex but tested with Trebuchet in case that was necessary).
I've managed to get the Exchange/Email client into tablet mode and tweaked to perfection, as well as settings and a couple of other apps...but for some reason SystemUI (or whatever controls the home screen/main interface) frustrates my every attempt to get that damned status bar at the bottom of the screen. It's enough to make a man want to flash back to PA...if PA were 4.2.1 and as cool as RB.
Can someone please share with me the method, settings, etc. necessary to make this happen?
Thanks in advance, y'all...
