RE: PPSSPP Fullscreen on Android
You can't remove the status bar on android 4.1+ (there used to be an option to minimize in 4.0.3, if the device had hardkeys, but google removed it in the later OS), there are app hacks like full!screen, GMD hidebar, ..etc but they are just hacks that kill the system UI process (causing the screen to stretch, or other glitches like the blue bar you see in ppsspp), no app can permanently hide the bar and recover the screen DIP reserved (usually 48dip for tablets).

However some android apps can add a black bar overlay with white dots (see the clock app for an example), if you really want the statusbar / soft keys removed you will need to hack it out of the android OS like I did, then rely on a softkey replacement like ButtonSavior ... but there are benefits like being able to use fullscreen resolution everywhere and most games that didn't scale properly will now scale.

Here is a guide I made awhile back for one of my tablets, it should be similar across other devices, do it at your own risk and there is a very real possibility of bricking your device so you should be familiar with restoring firmware.
