Hiding Status Bar

Postby KEgg » Wed Jun 27, 2012 3:58 pm

Ain't it a pain that the likes of Netflix has the Status Bar showing while you're watching, and that your video is not displaying at full screen? After a hunt around I finally came across this gem of an APK.

http://ppareit.github.com/HideBar/

Hide Bar is still work in progress when it comes to ICS, but it works none the less.

Make sure that you have updated BusyBox to the latest version, as the one shipped with MK802 wont let Hide Bar do its job.

Only issue I have found is that I'm unable to unhide the bar easily.. Best method was to stop the service.

Perhaps if we all donate to the development we could all suggest a widget would be the best thing for the app.

If there are other alternatives out there, please add them to this discussion.

Cheers all

BusyBox that comes loaded on the MK802 has no gui/shortcut for it as far as I can tell. Download the app from Google.play ....

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=stericson.busybox&hl=en ... download

open app.. it will show you what version the MK802 is currently using... think it was around 1.8.. It will also show the latest version to install.. tell it to do a smart upgrade, and it should be good to go.

Hi

I can't get the Hide Bar app to work.
Have installed busybox and have checked if my MK802 is rooted, it is. I have testet it in firmware v2 and is now running the uberoid. Still not working :cry:

The app tells me my device is not rooted... :evil:

I need to remove the status bar because I am planing on using the MK802 as a Digital Signage player.

With the help of some forum members, the latest version now works well with the MK802. Thanks Carlo and Marcus.

HideBar can be found at github (http://ppareit.github.com/HideBar/) or at the Android Market (https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... it.hidebar).

Looks good. THX!
