DanishbluntWill I lose everything I have installed when rooting? What about when I need to update to Android 12? I've read that system updates won't work when rooted. Also what's the downside to having my phone rooted? Dang.. This is really stupid.. My wife's redmi phone is cheaper than this and it's annoying that a feature as simple as hiding gesture hints were overlooked.
If ure rooted you can use a magisk module to hide the bars.
