Hi,
i'm still on 4.2.2 because of one only thing : i don't wanna see the softkeys anymore! (or just when i swipe up)
I read everywhere that "Auto Hide Softkeys" (that i use now) is buggy on kitkat, and that UDN Pro too.

Is there a solution to do the same thing?
Or have i to wait for an update of one of theses apps?

Thanks for your replies

You know I was thinking about installing gravity box. I used it on my Nexus 4. But it seems to indicate that you can't use it on heavily modified roms. So, does GB work well with our G2?

I have this problem too but i resolve it you must install Kitkat + root than install xposed and download immersive me which you find in xposed download section than activate it and enjoy in fullscreen softkeys and statusbar is auto hide and when you need it just slide with your finger

Nah man. I don't like it either. Never used it on any Paranoid Android Rom. I have just never really liked it. But some people loooooove it. that's what you gotta love about Android....

I think that stopped development. It was supposed to go on to another version where it could be app specific. I don't like immersive mode on my home screen. I am using a module called soft keys fade mod... I like it pretty well...

so, i'm now on kitkat, rooted.
I've tried immersive me, and it's quiet strange.
There's a blank area at the bottom of the screen on the launcher.
Sometime the softkeys are blacks (not transparent anymore), doesn't disappear.
i don't know, i'm not very satisfied with that.

Soft keys fade mod doesn't do the thing i want...

So, what to do?
wait for an update of autohide hotkeys?
