Default Add recents button and remove menu button in NavBar

I find it strange that no one has requested this feature. I find very annoying the menu button even though I've been using phones with it (Samsung) since 2010. Finally samsung has changed it's layout and it's new devices will have the recents instead of the menu button.

Is there a way or mod to replace the menu button with recents, or at least add the recents button?

If you are rooted, install G2 Xposed.

I hear you, man. After using a Nexus 4 for some time, switching to my G2 proved to be quite painless, except for the menu button and the long-press recent apps home button configuration. I don't understand why the keep such setting, forcing us to root in order to change it.

Knowing that KitKat offers no adaptive menu button repositioning, I guess LG should at least give us the option to change the standard layout. If not, root should be the way to go, but I don't like to be forced to do that one bit.
