Found this here and it works great.

Type the following commands in adb/fastboot environment (adb shell) on your PC after connecting the phone in file transfer mode and usb debugging is on:

· Hide Status Bar only type:

adb shell settings put global policy_control immersive.status=*

· Hide Navigation Bar only type:

adb shell settings put global policy_control immersive.navigation=*

· Hide Both Bars type:

adb shell settings put global policy_control immersive.full=*

· Back to normal/default type:

adb shell settings put global policy_control null*

When not in use, the navigation slides down and gives you the entire screen. Swipe up to bring it back. Say bye bye to any burn in issues.

What about when you have Samsung pay how does this affect the swipe up
It gets annoying cause you go to swipe up for the nav bar and it pulls up your s pay card. Also in messaging and some other apps that use the keyboard you swipe up for the nav bar and it brings up the keyboard and if you try to hide the keyboard and just bring up the nav bar the keyboard keeps coming up. I also noticed this breaks Samsung web browser open windows page and and add a new window. It just shows a blank page pretty much and if you try to open a new window or tap any of the options on this page nothing happens. Is it just my phone that does this or are other people having issues with this also? It's a awesome mod and thanks for sharing, if we could get those bugs fixed I would use it. I do a lot of adb testing stuff so this may have caused the issues I was having.

I would love to have the nav bar there all the time with the black semi transparent nav bar but not sure that can be done without modding the sysui framework. If anyone knows the command or if it's even possible to do through adb without root of course that would be great!

I have the same issue with the samsung browser and text message app. Will switch to chrome and see if there arent any issues there. if you find any way to fix the samsung browser glitch then please let us know.
