The new lollipop update re enables the qemu.hw.mainkeys=0 build.prop line to work without crashing.

Open build.prop and add the line qemu.hw.mainkeys=0 at the very end then save it and reboot phone. Make sure to back up build.prop before you do this in case you screw something up. Also make sure system is r/w first. Touchwiz doesn't work well with navbars so you'll want to use a launcher that does. This is only for lollipop not kitkat

Thanks. This is pretty cool. The only problem is that the navbar doesn't hide with full screen apps like videos or games. Would there be any way to get that to happen?

It happens for me on most apps or games that have that feature. Maybe the app it's not working on doesn't support it

You are correct. I didn't think it was working at first, but it did auto hide with Leo's Fortune and with the Photos video player. My main problem is the dialer though. The navbar hides the call button and the delete button on the dialer keypad.

I changed my dpi from 480 down to 420 and that brought the call button up

Under build.prop look for a line that says dpi 480. It shouldn't be to far down the list. Simply delete the number and add any number you desire. The lower the number the smaller everything is. I found 420 works to bring the call and delete button back but whatever you do is alright. Just don't go to low
