Default soft buttons not working...sort of

hopefully someone knows about this
so I bought an HTC Desire C for my mother
1.5 y later the soft buttons don't work
because I had installed recovery before, just in case, now I can see that they work in the recovery but do not work in the ROM

any ideas how to fix this

so far hard and soft reset, updates, stock ruu flashes and virus checks are a no go
Xperia X8 - amazing
Xperia U - colourful
Xperia S - nice
Xperia SP - collecting impressions

Just factory reset the device and try flashing it again... if it doesn't work make sure you used the latest RUU and if that doesn't work I don't know what's wrong!

PS I see you have a Xperia SP too

Go for this application:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...impmyrom&hl=en

Download and navigate to tools...
Then select navigation bar>reboot... This would enable navigation bar, then no need of the softbuttons...
Hope this helps... Any queries, feel free to ask!!
BY THE WAY, it works great with MINICM!! Check my signature
