    I would like a tweak that eliminates the status bar and the only way to see it is to pull down the NC or open the app switcher.

    Does anybody know of a tweak like this?

    I've always wanted a tweak like this too. I would love a clean springboard that only showed my wallpaper and nothing else.

    Unfortunately I think the only way for me to get rid of the translucent bar across the top would be winterboard anyway, so I would have to download two tweaks =/

    But it still would be interesting to know if a tweak exists to get rid of the status bar on the springboard.

    I would like to remove it all together and only have it show when the NC is pulled down.

    Yup, that's exactly what I would like as well.

    DockHide has a feature that also allows you to hide the status bar. I use it along with Gridlock to keep my main screen clutter free. You can still see the status bar with the NC pull down or with a designated gesture to bring the dock/status bar back.

    It's called NoStatus. On Cydia. It's a free tweak. You set it up in Settings/NoStatus to make the status bar disappear with a gesture. I use double tapping on the status bar.

    Sometimes it will still show up. If that happens simply sleep/wake and it will be gone.

    You're welcome.

    There is no way to set it to start off with no status bar?

    Unfortunately, no.

    ----------

    I've tried this, and it doesn't seem to work with the springboard, only apps. Maybe it will work in conjunction with NoStatus.... I'm going to give it a whirl.

    ----------

    No Status and Maximization do work together. Cool.

    This is great. These are working together and now I only see my status bar when I want to.

    Thanks guys. Love this forum.

    I just ran these two tweaks for a day and my battery took a major hit. I only got 4hours of usage before I got the 20 % alert
