Thank you, it works perfectly on OP7Pro OOS11!
But one question, how can I retain default keyboard spacing with this theme installed? It's really hard to type when there is no keyboard spacing. Thx.
This isn't a perfect solution to your problem, but it's a workaround - if you use SwiftKey, you can enable Arrow Keys. They appear below the keyboard and bump the keyboard up slightly. It definitely helps a little bit with the spacing issue. Not sure how you'd fix this with other keywboards, unfortunately.

There is also this alternative for rooted phones with Magisk and module Magisk Hide Props Config:


Works great on Miui 12.6 on my Poco F3
Hope that helps

That's a good idea! Fortunately I use SwiftKey. I'll try this workaround. Thanks.

It does! I disabled NoNavBar from this thread's OP and enabled the Pixel Tweaks v5.3 one.

Only downside is there are three white dashes at the bottom of the screen that weren't there with the NoNavBar. It doesn't bother me, though!

Nonavbar theme isn't working on my rooted Oneplus 9 Pro
I Build & Install, reboot, and then Enable selected
I get a message to compile.

Also there is a message on the theme page(screenshot attached)

Am I missing any step?

Thanks

Edit: Installed substratum Lite and that solved the problem.

Try using Lite (by substratum) and let me know if that does or does not help.

How to remove navigation bar (three button) in Android 11. NOTE: Root is required to use this method!

Hi guys! Please either move or remove this thread if it's either in the wrong place or covered by another thread. This thread is intended to walk through removing the three-button navigation bar in Android 11 since the traditional way ('wm overscan') doesn't work anymore.

This is useful for if you want to use an alternative gesture system, such as Fluid Navigation Gestures (FNG). Before you get started with the below, be sure you have enabled the replacement system first. FNG's built in navbar disabler doesn't work on Android 11, so you don't need to have this switched on.

Assuming you have root already (there should be plenty of tutorials available to help you out on this), all you really need to do is download Substratum Lite and nonavbar.apk (available at: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AsqLR2yZd3fMiaV4fcCSAw7trgl8AQ?e=e9ncai). Choose to install nonavbar.apk, then it should show up as a theme in 'lite'. After pressing the NoNavBar theme, you should see 'Android System (android [11])' to the left of a checkbox. After checking this box, press the '1 SELECTED' button on the bottom right. Then, press 'Install selected', restart, and get back to this screen to finally 'Enable selected'.

See for screenshots: https://photos.app.goo.gl/HL48xhsZMPMkmcdV7

And at that, you should have your replacement gestures as your primary input now! Enjoy!

I'm by no means an expert, so my ability to help with questions is limited. Hope this helps!
Thanks for this. works on OP9R (OOS11).

    Yep, exactly the same issue here.

    Samsung S10e here. I'd previously managed to remove the nav bar using substratum, synergy and the one ui high contrast theme. No root required.

    However I've just performed a system update and the nav bar returned. I've attempted to follow the exact same steps I followed previously but when attempting to "build" with Synergy it fails when attempting to install "Synergy Core Theme".

    Any help appreciated. The nav bar sucks balls.
    I used hex and was able to hide the navigation bar in S21ultra running android 11

    Enable 3 button nav bar
    Install and apply hex with nav bar size of 0
    Reboot.

    Edit : rooting is not needed.

    What's this 'hex'? Is it something devices other than from Samsung can use?

    It is meant for Samsung devices.

    As the creator of the Fullscreen/Immersive gestures module, I'll just say, thanks for offering users the ability to use their favorite alternative navigation methods on Android 11

    It's really unfortunate that people have to be either forced to use Android's standard navigation gestures (which quite a few people dislike) or an impossible to be hidden 3 button navbar (due to the removal of Overscan)

    Keep up the good work :)

    I would appreciate if there is the way to completely
    hide status bar in android 11 with "no display cutout magisk module".
