Long story short, Q gestures is absolutely terrible. I use a third party app for navigation. however, EVERY single app I've ever tried seems to be unable to hide the nav bar due Google's screwery. in fact, even Fullscreen Qgestures magisk module does nothing on Ob1.

Does anyone know a definitive way to hide the stupid annoying navbar?

Google have removed the ability to over-scan the display in Android 11 (which is the trick all 3rd party apps used to hide the nav bar); so at the moment there's simply NO WAY to remove it,

I wouldn't mind the built-in gestures so much if there was the ability to turn off the "mini nav bar" which just shows a hide icon every time you use a keyboard. That's the biggest UI issue in my book, it just looks stupid!

I absolutely loathe that extra button.

But the slider at the bottom of the screen for gestures I've grown to love.

Knocking it left or right switches apps really quickly and I couldn't be without that now.

Hi,
You can either use fullscreen Gesture magisk module or you can follow this guide below-

In oxygenOS 11 you can hide the bottom space between the keyboard and gesture .... you have that option in your settings under the language and input section.... you can simply search keyboard height adjustment in setting and you'll find it

thank you

Is there a way to auto-hide the nav bar? Ex. On my old phone you could swipe up to show it or tap a dot on the left to stop it from disappearing.

Looks like the only way is to use a different launcher? I tried adding the fullscreen / immersive module but I believe that's just for the keyboard.

    Heres a magisk module that adds the old qemu build.prop line.

    Weird though is using props to add the same line didnt work but this module did.

    Is there a way to make the 3-button NavBar smaller? Or with a transparent background? Or both?
    You can adjust the size with the GravityBox app.(for android11)

    By making the size 0, the bar will be completely lost.
    You can adjust the color if you want.

    Google needs to reverse it back to the way it was...

    @dliadz: I see what you mean. The space (and not specific the bottom bar) is there. I didn't even notice it because it doesn't bother me.
