Default Best way to make status bar bye bye?

Howdy

I'm constantly modding my android and had an idea the other day. I think I'd be best to make the status bar disappear or hide it. I have a custom Rom that allows that but I want the option of still being able to swipe down to check it.


What's the best to hide the status bar but still be able to swipe down to check it?

Thanks !

Try a custom launcher. Nemus launcher lets you hide the bar and reshow it by swiping down.

try GMP from market it allows you to set specific gesture for an action.
You can set a gesture of your choice to hide status bar, and it will work no matter where you are or running on your phone

Swyped from my Samsung Galaxy SII





I will no longer be as active as before on XDA. So please don't send me any PM. Thanks

Great I use apex but Where? I found the option to hide the status bar but that won't let my swipe down to access it. It gets rid of it completely.

Go to Apex settings - Behaviour settings - swipe up/down - toggle status bar

Any of you guys able to provide a link to a no0b friendly guide to modifying framework to hide status bar permanently i.e; within apps not just on home? I'm using kk and most guides seem to be ics and jb.
