Default [Q] Enable Softkeys

I tried to enable softkeys on my HTC Desire X [Root (SU + Bbox), Xposed, Stock Rom] with softkey enabler, but after reboot nothing happens. After that, I added the line
at the end of my buil.prop myself, but nothing happens

What can I do?

Is it possible to flash a modified build.prop via recovery? If yes, how to do it?

Thanks for your answers,

In order for that to work, the required resources must exist in SystemUI.apk. This device doesn't exactly have the biggest internal memory, so HTC likely removed those to save space. GravityBox may be able to add them, but you'll likely have better luck with a CM10 Rom. Why do you want the navigation bar anyway?

Progress is helpful.
A finished product is more helpful.
Thank me for what I've done, not what I'm doing.
