Force Full Screen

Force Full Screen


This utility will allow you to force any application to run in full screen even if it was not originally programmed to run in that manner. On phones it will hide the top pull down Action Bar. On tablets it will hide the bottom System Bar that has the back, home and app soft-buttons.

- Root required
- BusyBox required
- Tested on GB, ICS and JB

The application simply executes a kill command every second to kill a process called com.android.systemui --- The actual shell script is available on XDA-Developers.com (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2063068) so that folks that like using Script Manager can use this as well. Work even better when using the Widget add-in for Script Manager.

Inspiration came from a game that did not run in full screen and my son kept exiting the game by hitting the home soft-button on the tablet.
