Just in case any of you don't like the fixed status bar you can still hide it with the old shell commands, to bring it back for a few seconds just swipe down from the top.
I did on my S8+ and just tried on the Note 8 and it works fine. No Root needed

I remember this! I'm glad something still works! Thanks for the heads up. Here's my homescreen.

Is there a way to permanently disable navigation bar and use swipe gestures instead? (I don't mean hide the navbar, because it appears when you try to use swipe gestures). I love the immersive mode but constant need to bring the bar back is pretty annoying. I would greatly appreciate if anyone would suggest a way!

If you dont want to go through all this you can use Nova launcer and just choose the option to hide the status bar, it will only appear if you swipe down from the top

This is for immersive mode system wide, you will not see the status bar in all apps too.

I LOVE immersive mode but doing it this way is too buggy for me to enjoy
Causes lag dragging the notification bar down and also bugs out in lots of apps (facebook/whatsapp/MEGA) etc

I have a better idea:
download the "Tiles" app from the play store, it has immersive mode option to be turned on and off from the notification panel, added as a tile. run this adb command "adb shell pm grant com.rascarlo.quick.settings.tiles android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS" then you can set it to ask you to turn off everything or different component. You can still swipe up. Also, you can only turn off status bar. etc.
Also, I am personally using the PIE controls app form the play store instead of the gestures since I am unrooted. Works well.

Yes that is. If you swipe up it will appear otherwise it doesn't show.

Is there any way to permanently hide it? I don’t want it coming back when swiping up. Want to replace it with pie.
