This free jailbreak tweak addresses the full-screen Home Bar problem in a recent version of the YouTube app

If you’ve installed a recent version of the YouTube app from the App Store, then you may have noticed something being slightly off about the Home Bar behavior on Home Bar-equipped handsets.

A problem documented in the depiction page of the new YoutubeHomeBarFix jailbreak tweak by iOS developer rob311 notes that the Home Bar indicator may not hide when entering full-screen mode in the app.

This frustrating bug causes an obstruction of your full-screen video playback, and the new YoutubeHomeBarFix jailbreak tweak addresses the problem so that the app behaves naturally as it always did, ensuring the Home Bar is hidden in full-screen mode.

Some users have reported that a later update to the YouTube app has already fixed this problem, while others suggest that another update may be necessary. In any case, it may be a good idea to keep your YouTube app up to date unless you have add-ons that require a specific version.

If you can’t wait for that update, then you can get the free YoutubeHomeBarFix jailbreak tweak for free from rob311’s personal repository.
