Is there an app that can automatically hide the soft keys, yet are accessible on swipe from bottom/side? I've tried GMD but they're constantly updating their app daily, which interrupts functionality as it needs super user access granted. With their last update, they inexplicably switched the locations of the tasks button and the back Burton. o.O

Best method is to deactivate soft keys from built.prop and use Pie

Add this line to your build.prop.

qemu.hw.mainkeys=1

It makes the phone think it has capacitive buttons and disables the nav bar.
then just use LMT Launcher to navigate though the phone.

Thanks! I just went with pie. It works great! I just wish it could be customized. I'd like to see the stock menu pop up instead. That'd be neat.
