There was a request to get the ICS SoftKeys working.
I also wanted to experiment with the softkeys and doing some mods and theming.
So I present the Enable ICS SoftKeys CM9-Beta0 Mod.
Flash the Zip and Clear Cache.
This is setup so the Capacitive Buttons will turn off approx 2 seconds after screen on(***MUST BE ON AUTO BRIGHTNESS***)
The lights will not come back on unless the Capacitive Buttons are touched. Hope this helps.

Also: Lets thank our great devs for the work they do!
The OG Epic is a great phone and they just keep making it better!
Great job CM Team!
the soft touch buttons are nice and the long press works..can the normal touch buttons be disabled like the nexus S? thanks for the mod, it is awesome
I'd like to know this as well. Practically speaking if just dimming the hardware buttons saves battery then disabling them completely and using software keys should be even better. Also it looks nicer imo.
