Android player on Dell Cloud Connect
« on: April 03, 2014, 02:16:51 PM »
Hi there,

I am using the Adroid based Cloud Connect from Dell (I Work there :)), but I can't get rid of the navigation bar in the bottom, and also the player does not prevent the device from going into sleepmode.
I could go down the root road, but that is really not what I want.

Any suggestions?

You can search for some of the posts in this forum mentioning about autohide. http://script.digitalsignage.com/forum/index.php/topic,2320.0.html

Don't see a vallid solution there!

Rooting a device is not something one should have to do...

@ANOOP Yes it does not Work, it needs the device to be rooted!

Unfortunately the way Android works, rooting is really your best option to hide the navigation or menu bars. Now depending on the ROM you have installed some have the option to hide these built into their Display Settings. Example 4.4.2 AOSP has an option to hide both bars. This however does require having a rooted device to install the ROM on, unless your boot loader isn't locked then you'll get away with it.
