Prompt [Q] dumb question but...

okay this may be a dumb question but here it goes anyway, since we have the HTC One M8 and all of the Buttons are now on screen how difficult would it be to do a re boundary, change layout and add a convenient Menu key to the Mix?

Not dumb! To change my soft keys I use Cyanogenmod11 and an app called "SoftKeyz" (costs something like $1.99). CM11 allows you to add or remove the menu, search, etc buttons. The SoftKeyz app allows you to change how they look.

If you aren't interested in either of those I have heard of an app with a free version called "Ultimate Dynamic Navbar" that may allow you to do what you want. I have no experience with that app though, so don't take my word for it.

All of these require root of course!

a lot of roms have this option built in, or just use xposed to get it (gravity box has something on this efffect)
