Modifying build.prop on HTC One?
I have scoured the internet and tried several solutions.
I'm on an AT&T HTC One currently running a 4.3 GPe ROM, and it's rooted, unlocked, and S-ON.
I'm trying to add on screen buttons like a nexus by adding qemu.hw.mainkeys=0 to the build prop.
I've tried ES File explorer, which flat out didn't do anything. I've mounted the system folder using the mount system rw/ro app, then edited it using Root Explorer and build.prop editor, which either immediately reverted to what was before, reverted after reboot, or caused the phone to reboot itself, also reverting the build.prop to what it was before. I've also tried this in MoDaCo Switch (currently my favorite) in both the Sense and GPe sides.
Am I missing something obvious?
Has anyone else tried anything like this or edited the HTC One build.prop in general?
