[GUIDE] How to remove the IncS buttons and replace it with softkeys (navigation bar)
My First Post On xda
I searched for how do I remove the buttons on my hTC Incredible S and replace it with Soft Keys known as "navigation bar".
to reduce battery usage and give it a new look
THIS WILL WORK PROPERLY ON ANY AOSP ROM.. (using Vivokat by szezso in this GUIDE. link;http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2519414
requires Root access and Root explorer App "you can use cyanogemod file manger instead"
first go to setting>buttons>backlight and un-check illuminate buttons.
then open root explorer.. give it root access.. mount as R/O
go to system>build.prop
and add this code : qemu.hw.mainkeys=0
save, exit and reboot..
you should have a navigation bar and working buttons BOTH.
if you want too completely disable the original buttons:
go to root explorer then system>usr>keylayout>atmel-touchscreen.kl
and delete the buttons that you don't want.
the code : key 217 SEARCH WAKE DROPPED is for search button
the code : key 158 BACK WAKE DROPPED is for back button
the code : key 139 MENU WAKE DROPPED is for menu button
the code : key 102 HOME WAKE DROPPED is for home button
i deleted it all because i don't want it
NOTE; you will still have Sweep2Wake working. nothing should go wrong if you followed this post 100% no bootloops, freezes, etc.
if this worked, let me know, and don't forget to press thanks
