Default [ROOT][APP]GMD AutoHide Soft Keys

It does NOT modify system files. If something unplanned happens, just reboot your device and it will restore your stock navigation bar.

It should work on other devices with Phone UI too. It also works on devices without soft keys. Let me know if your device works and I will enable it in Play Store.



Unique Features:
- Hide just navigation bar and keep notifications bar.
- Show Quick NavBar and click soft button with one simple swipe.
- Theme Quick NavBar.
- Adjust trigger size and position.
- Integrate with Gesture Control or Tasker using Shortcuts.
- Stock firmwares and Paranoid Android supported.
- No system modifications are done
- No reboot required to hide/show stock keys.

Differences to other status bar hiding apps:
* Does not remove notification bar
* Does not modify system
* No need to reboot
* Stock Notification panel and settings panels are fully working
* Stock recent apps list is fully working
* No problems with receiving phone calls

Known problems:
* Sometimes resets wallpaper to default.

Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d.hidesoftkeys

Even if you download from XDA you can still purchase PRO key and key will be managed by Play Store. This means that once unlocked, app will always be unlocked - no matter if it is installed from XDA or Play Store. You can switch between XDA/PlayStore version any time without loosing key.

Does your navigation bar disappear and reappear when you turn Auto Hide setting On or Off ?
Or nothing happen and just trigger appear on screen?

I think soft keys detection might be the problem. I attached new build to first post, please try it: HideSoftKeys_0.1.without_detection.apk

Great findings ... Remove the red layer add an option for permanent remove of the soft keys, release it to the market and take my money...
