Here's a workaround on getting a smaller statusbar area if you have root. Flash the attached zip in magisk manager. Go to developer settings and choose waterfall cutout. I don't have this phone so I cannot give you screenshots.
It appears not - I had to troubleshoot numerous boot loops until I identified this statusbar mod as the cause. @Tulsadiver - I know it's hard to keep updating these every month or so, but any chance you can get us a fresh batch for March 2021?
