Default Anyway to get a soft button navbar?

Is there a mod or a work around to put a soft navbar on a rooted MJ7 device? I have xposed and Wanam frameworks installed. Would I be able to use one of those to help me achieve this? I did see a mod for this in a SGS3 xda forum but was unsure as to if it would work with the s4?

I don't want to use a third party launcher is the only situation. I am currently using the 4.4 KitKat launcher from the s4 GPE that was put up. Any other ideas out in the xdaverse?

3minit. Look for it on Google play..... but you'd have to flash the appropriate framework, and I don't know how to do that with safestrap or anything

3minit will not work with mj7 as there is no custom recovery. Unless you know something I don't.

The only way I've ever seen it done on a TW rom is using 3minit, which of course requires a custom recovery to flash the framework. You can't do it with Wanam & I haven't seen anyone put out an Xposed module for soft-buttons. I've tried editing the build.prop like it says to in the link, but it's never worked for me on any rom on this phone or the Note 2.

Have you considered just using Pie or Glove Box? I know it isn't the same as soft keys but it beats having to push and hold a button just to open recent apps.
