To disable the capacitive menu and back keys:
Add "#" in front of "key 139 menu" and "key 158 back" in the Generic.kl file in system\usr\keylayout folder.

Delete "WAKE" behind "key 172" in the gpio-keys.kl file in system/usr/keylayout/ folder.
To add onscreen softkeys for back / home / recents:
Add "qemu.hw.mainkeys=0" to build.prop file in the system folder.

If anyone knew how to fix this, I'd n really appreciate the help! Thanks
