Nice idea! After hiding the navbar, I quickly realized how much I could use something like this! I'll have to try this out when I get a chance.

Only downside I see is that since we're changing the key layout file, even when the navbar is shown, the volume buttons would still act as home/back. Would be nice for the ROM chefs to have some sort of 'live toggle' so that it would switch to home/back when the navbar is hidden, and then back to default (actual volume) when the navbar is shown.

Cheers and thanks m8!

That's a nice idea but how do you change the volume? You will have to install some kind widget.

Also this increase wear on your buttons, that's how I killed my previous phone.

there's a toggle in AOKP to hide and bring back the toggles, although this would be more convenient it seems like it would be a hassle to change those buttons whenever you needed your volume back

Thanks for the idea just FYI on 4.0.2 GSM the layout file is:
ROOT - SYSTEM - USR - KEYLAYOUT - Generic.kl but it worked just the same. It was item 114 and 115.

Working great so far. Also I put a volume widget on my home screen so that takes care of that.

There's a flashable zip for this on rootz, been using it for several days. I just long press my ringer toggle for volume adjustment.
