I'm not responsible for any of this. This someone else thread and development.

I'm simply posting a link for those who would like to play around with this.

Most of these are apks that will show up in under settings/display/front touch buttons/color. For your choosing.

I have tried pretty much all the softkeysin this thread (that are not girly) and have had no issues what so ever. Proceed on your own. I'm not responsible.

All credit goes to those that made these apps and mods in the thread I'm linking you to.

all these are just apk's that you download and use what ever file manager you prefer and click and install. you dont have to replace any apks or modify anything. so due to that its pretty safe if softkeys apk doesnt work then in settings select another softkey theme and use your file manager to delete the one that doesnt work

You can download and install them. Tried it by myself and i'm stock, not rooted and no custom recovery installed!
All you have to do, is download what you want, install as normal apk (don't forget in settings-security to active 'unknown sources').
After you installed them, in the settings-display-front touch buttons-color you find them.
If the 'original' appear on homescreen, just deactivate 'transparent background'.
Sorry about my English.

Thanks for that. Yeah I've been trying to explain this is safe. Not a mod just normal apk's. I probably should have mentioned in the OP that you don't need root. And hey I learn something new everyday I.e. disable transparent to get them to show the new soft keys on home screen. I didn't know that. Thanks.

No doubt, I had been trying to get them to stay using the g2 tweak box, and I couldn't do it. That is a simple solution.
