I updated to the soak build 23.3.23 for the Maxx. I enabled On Screen Navbar on previous system, but that mod is not flashing via TWRP because the system doesn't match. Anyone have any idea how to enable On Screen Navbar on the new 23.3.23 build?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Update the bottom of the build.prop with

qemu.hw.mainkeys=0

using root explorer in text editor mode, saved changes and reboot. Once rebooted you should have onscreen nav keys, Hope that helps.

Thanks for your response. Unfortunately, adding that to the build.prop on the Maxx doesn't do the job. There needs to be modification in the framework-res.apk. I tried to modify it with apktool and install, but it bootlooped me. Like an idiot, I didn't make a backup and there is no fxz out there currently....oops. I was able to flash TopSnake's ROM, so at least my phone is working now. I'll be holding my breath until fxz is released.

you could also just use xposed + gravity box to enable onscreen Nav buttons. Only difference I believe is that GB does not disable the physical nav buttons

How much real estate do you gain if any by on screen nav keys?

You lose real estate, since they pop up on the bottom.

I used a combo of this mod + Gravity Box when I had cracked my screen and it messed up the sensor in the physical nav buttons.

Thanks that's what I thought you can't get rid of the stock nav keys to gain real estate like on the Moto X.
