Would anyone know how to disable the light of the capacitive buttons as well as disable the buttons all together?

I know you can disable the lights in Xposed Gravitybox. Not sure you can totally disable them.

For those wondering how to disable Tue capacitive buttons I have attached a photo to the directory and the file you want to edit is shown at the bottom. To disable them you must insert a # before the number for each key.

Now if I can find the directory to dim the lights...

I found the directory for the lighting but it keeps reverting back to its typical level after a few seconds. Would anyone know why this is? Also, I cannot backup the file either..kind of odd too!

I use an app capacitive buttons. But it seems the only way to get them back on is a reboot.

I have used the application before but I was looking for a more definitive way. On the ROM I was running the brightness of the capacitive buttons mirrored the brightness of the LCD brightness; however, on the stock ROM this is not the case. Why the difference? I don't know all.

Regardless, I caved and installed Gravity Box to handle the issue.
