Do you want to remove the annoying status bar in Pokemon Go and enter full-screen mode instead?
There is a new jailbreak tweak called GoBigger by nullpixel that allows you to remove it simply. In case you don’t know this feature, a status bar is located on top of your iPhone’s screen. It provides access to information like the time, battery percentage, your carrier name (change it here), and whether you are connected to a cellular network or Wi-Fi.
Sometimes, having the status bar in Pokemon Go partially destroy the fun for you. If you’re like me a prefer playing the game in full screen; this small package can help.
Another thing I also want to mention is that I usually have trouble catching Pokemon. Not that I suck at it but because every time I tried to throw the Pokeball, my Control Center (CC) would pull up instead.
This is incredibly annoying as well.
Control Center is a feature that gives you direct access to important features & settings on your iPhone as well. Since this tweak is already removing the status bar, it will also make it harder for the Control Center to be pulled up as well. Therefore, avoid interruption when you throw a Pokeball.
According to the author:
When you throw a pokeball, sometimes the control centre opens, but by making this app fullscreen when you swipe up to get to the control centre a little arrow appears that to have to pull up to get to control centre.
Ready to enter full screen mode? How to install GoBigger
This tweak is not available on one of the default repositories so you will have to add one.
Step 1: Unlock your iPhone and go to Cydia
Step 2: Wait for all the sources to reload
Step 3: Switch to the Manage tab and add http://repo.nullpixel.co/ as one of your sources
Step 4: Install GoBigger from there and Respring
After that, you should be able to enjoy Pokemon Go without seeing any other items from the status bar. Also, if you are a faster thrower, this will minimize intervention from the Control Center.
