How do I disable Capacitive Buttons and Add on screen "buttons"?
I tried to edit system/usr/keylayout/generic.kl and put # in front of keys 158 and 139 but then I can't save the file.

How do I save the edited file?

Then how do I turn on the on screen buttons?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @macsrock,

From what I understand in order to enable the on screen "soft keys" for a TW ROM, the framework would have to be modified (to what extent I do not know). Whereas in an "AOSP" (stock android) based ROM, a simple build.prop edit would do the trick.

Yeah Samsung are dicks and removed the parts of the framework needed for this I'd much prefer this as well but not happening anytime soon.

I was finally able to disable the capacitive buttons which always get pressed accidentally. Im using GMD gestures. But has anyone yet found any mod to make the on screen navbar work?
