The presence of Android Status Bar can be a problem for some applications that do not activate the full screen mode, such as Amazon Kindle ebook reader. We have added the ability to hide and show the Android Status Bar in our Arctools application. This solution requires Arctools version 0.66 or a more recent version and a rooted firmware.

Hide / Show Android Status Bar procedure demonstration video

Procedure

Step 1. Install Button Savior (or other soft keys application)

We recommend that you install before going further, you install an application that can substitute the regular Android Status bar. A good option is Button Savior (Root) that is available for free in Google Play/Android Market.
