Default [MOD] SoftKeys for ICS/JB Roms

Hi !

I've made a little zip, based on SGS3 Softkeys enabler for my Nexus S, because my capacitive keys are broken. This zip enable Softkeys.
It works on Nexus S, and should work on Nexus S 4G. I've installed it with CWM 6.0.1.0 in CM10, and it works.

Tested on :
- CM10 : Works
- Knzo's AOSP Strawberry : Works (thanks to af.wirapraja for the report)
- MIUI 2.8 : Works (thanks to dollabillgates for the report)
- ParanoidAndroid : Doesn't work (NOT SURE, need more reports !! Thanks to danielfg87 for the report)

FAQ :
- How can I disable the backlight ? Use BLD (Backlight Dimmer). It's a features from kernels (like Air Kernel or Matr1x). Set time of BLD to 0 with NSTools.
- Can you change the size of the buttons ? Sorry, but no. Because change size of buttons is possible, but only with one mod per rom, and few modifications. Ask other members or do it yourself.
- Can you customize the navbar ? Change color or other things ? No ! It needs framework-res modifications, and like size of buttons, it's only one per rom. Codename Android can do that !

Screenshot :


If you can test it on some ROMs, it would be very great !

Thanks !

PS: Sorry for my very bad english ...

Just download a kernel with BLD (& set time to 0 with NSTools).
