Default [HELP] Adding a NavBar

Hello
I am on a LG optimus VU
It's an ics device but it has no navbar
Unlocking the bootloader is impossible

Is there anyway I can ads a transparent navbar on this?

I'm guessing that the navigation bar is disabled from the build prop. However there is a alternative. Pie control may help. Hope this hrlps

Is your phone rooted? If so, you can try to install Xposed Installer (here) and GravityBox (here). There's a tweak there to add a NavBar.

We have no way to flash stock on this phone.
Hence any problem in the process needs to be repaired by the country which I am not willing to do :P
