Default [Q] Install onscreen buttons, like Galaxy Nexus & Nexus 7

I know there was a way to disable the buttons on the Galaxy Note 8.0 which was good, but it got pretty annoying when i had to pull out the stylus to go back a page. Is there a way to install the onscreen buttons that are similar to the nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus? I don't mind losing screen space, but it annoys the hell out of me when i type in landscape and my finger or hand would brush across those buttons and mess up what i'm doing. i would like nothing more than to install a second row of buttons while getting rid of the ones the built on, well maybe retain the main button. But hopefully there is a way to install it on the galaxy note 8.0, such as a simple flash or install of an apk.

Since no one knew the answer to my question I decided to check out YouTube and one of their videos similar to disabling the capacitive buttons allowed me to install on screen buttons. Now my note 8.0 feels like my nexus 7.

I have the AT&T I467 so I can't install custom roms from what I heard. Heck I'm still at 4.1.2, but at least I'm rooted and unlocked. should have went with the international version.
