This would be nice if we could make it pop up when the pen is out and/or reduce the size of the buttons.

Awesome, thanks for sharing. This really makes the spen more functional, having an easy to access home and back button, and the one click recent's button is the cherry on top. It would be nice to just have it pop up when you pull out the spen, but I still like the recent's and soft home button.

I'd like to eventually have a customizable nav bar, like in AOKP. On my S3, I turned my nav bar into my dock and had long press commands for each one as well, such as opening voicemail when long pressing home, composing message when long pressing messages, etc. You could also resize the bar so they didn't take up as much real estate.

Nonetheless, thank you for sharing this. I'm loving all of these mods.

If you press the button on the pen you can use gestures to do all the things the keys do

This and I'm pretty sure most people get the note for the bigger screen. Why waste precious space with nav bar? I do like the concept of just having it enabled when the s pen is pulled out. Probably a way to do it by modifying the page buddy to disable the hard keys and enable on screen soft keys.... Just a thought

So it works, but the home button + power does not do screenshots anymore.. Apparently it changed to the volume down + power??

Here it is though.. I plan on still keeping my hard keys active because I do like the menu function (personally)

EDIT: S-Pen will not take screenshot either????

I second this as well. I would love to see the on screen buttons automatically appear and disable the hard keys when the S-Pen is pulled out and do the opposite when the S-Pen is placed back into the holder. Or maybe add a S-Pen shortcut to enable on screen navigation keys. Now that would be crazy.
