Ultimate Dynamic NavBar - app that alows you to get rid of that horrible space-eating black navbar and replace it with fancy showing-on-swipe customizable navbar-like panel.

I'd Be Glad Glad If you support me by bying this in Google Play ^_^
Also you can download lite version there

As always, UDN is free for XDA and 4PDA communities(but if you want to donate me - buy PRO, it's the same, as CE, but updates through Google Play)

- panel that shows up with fancy animation by swipe from bottom edge of the screen or by touching a trigger button (Customizable).
- XPOSED(safe) or build.prop mod(dangerous) to hide softkeys on your device. All devices with android 4.0+ are supported!
- you can add up to 9 buttons to the panel (and assign shortClick and LongClick acitons to every button)
- About 20 different action for buttons: from basic system navigation to "kill app" and "tie custom app"
- Everything is themable: buttons, panel, glow-effects and more!
- Swipe mode to navigate the panel like paranoid's pie.
- small ram consumption (~< 8 MB of RAM)
- Lots of other customizations and modes.

Waiting for your bugreports and feature requests on UDN's Issue tracker

Since this thread moved to devDB, I'm no more able to edit attachments(hope it's temporal bug, though). So here's latest download link:

Official mimi-FAQ (TOO OUTDATED):
Q: How to use "Ultimate Dynamic NavBar"?
A: Switch the switch to "on", then you can trigger UDN's panel by swiping up near the trigger(grey triangle) at bottom-left screen corner of your phone(or tablet).

Q: Only button that works is "Recents" Why?
A: Looks that you don't have Root permissions on your device. Google for more info...

Q: Activated "hide real navbar" option, but nothing happened! What I did wrong?
A: That means that app can't obtain root permissions, or your device don't have busybox installed.

Q: App can't restore original navbar.
A: Rare bug You can manually restore navbar by removing all "qemu.hw.mainkeys=1" lines from /system/build.prop . Mail me if you need help.

Q: UDN overlaps information on the screen!!!1 How Do I fix it?
A: That's correct behavior! It is impossible to act another way! And No, I cant overlay nothing in the zone of real navbar Don't ask!!

Q: Android 4.3, can't hide notification. Is it possible to fix?
A: No, since google fixed bug I used to hide notification. There's no way to hide notification anymore

Q: OK, I found bug! What should I do???
A: post it to issues list I'll be happy to fix it!

It wont let me select to "hide real nav bar''. So all it really does for me is add a second, auto hiding nav bar on top of my existing nav bar.

A shortcut to show and hide the navbar will be helpful ... to use it with gmd gesture control to combine the best parts of both apps ...

Ok, will add toggle shortcut in the next update. (actually, it is going to be "show" shortcut, because hidding is hardcoded for now. and i'm not going to change it's behavior in nearest future )
