Enable Android Statusbar / Disable Immersive Mode on KitKat


I’m on Ionic v1.0.0beta4 and I’m unable to see the statusbar. It’s in Android 4.4’s “immersive” mode, and I can’t seem to make the statusbar always show. I tried the code over here to no avail.

Any ideas how I can disable immersive mode / full screen in order to get the Android 4.4 statusbar back?



Add this to your config.xml

<preference name="fullscreen" value="false" />



I had that before and it didn’t work. I guess it plus the Javascript provided in the linked post must have done it.

Much appreciated.
