Default [XMOD] Re-enable the missing back button options

[Edit: This modification is now in my FREE MoDaCo Toolkit - details]

This modification uses the 'Xposed' system, which must be installed as detailed in this post.

This modification will restore the missing 'back button options' in the 'Settings -> Display, Gestures and Buttons' menu on your HTC One. As it is an Xposed mod, it should be ROM version independent.

To install...
  • Download and install the modification APK - DOWNLOAD
  • Enabled the module in 'Xposed Installer'
  • Reboot
Easy eh? More Xposed modules for the One will follow.

Works like a charm. Thanks Paul, great to have this feature enabled... To be honest I wonder why they disabled it from the review units. Who knows eh.

It needs Xposed, which needs root to install.

Sure, but this method should be rom version independent and is arguably easier to install once you have the Xposed framework.

Both have their merits!

I've also packaged my various xposed mods (with more to come) in a paid app on the Play Store. You can of course download them individually for free still!
