Default [Tutorial] Enable SoftKeys and Disable Soft Touch Keys

Requirements:
-Root
-ArtMod v5.1 http://forum.xda-developers.com/opti...te-10-t2811342
-SoftKey Enabler https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...yenabler&hl=it
-A File Manager(for fixing taskmanager FC and modify keylayout)
-TaskManager Apk . (Link Below).

Steps:
- Go to settings and disable key illumination.
-With SoftKeyEnabler enable SoftKeys without rebooting..not necessary.
-To disable the hardware keys go to /system/usr/keylayout and modify keypad_8064.kl file by adding "#" on the last 3 lines.
Should look like this :
key 114 VOLUME_DOWN
key 115 VOLUME_UP
key 116 POWER WAKE
#key 139 MENU VIRTUAL
#key 158 BACK VIRTUAL
#key 172 HOME VIRTUAL
-To fix taskmanager FC you will have to download the app(link below) and copy it to system/app and fix permission.
-Enjoy.

ps: maybe there are better methods but this is the way i did it..
ps2: my first tutorial ..


BUG : softkeys settings don't work..need for some one to fix. Not a big deal.Keys work fine without it.

The headset is probably one of the vendor things in /keylayout... dig around and report back in what you find!
