I've rooted my nook without any issue, and now only have one persistent annoyance - when I'm typing in portrait mode, I keep tapping the status bar with my fat thumbs which causes either a notification popup or B&N's native launcher to pop up over my keyboard and goof my typing.

Anyone know how to modify the bar, or best-cast move it to the top of the screen like it appears on an android phone (like my Droid X)?
