Lets Begin
U all know that the Default Navigation Bar comes with only 3 Buttons. Back , Home and Recent Apps. So this little tutorial will help u to add extra two buttons (Very useful at some times) to the Navigation bar. One is Power Button and Next is Menu Button.

Things Needed:-
  • One PC
  • Little Knowledge of Decompiling, Editing XML Files and Signing Apks
  • Notepad ++
  • Some Brains


Note :- U can get the Notepad++ and Apktool for De compiling from here. Also there is a nice tutorial too..
.

(1) Decompile ur SystemUI.apk and go to res/drawable-xxhdpi folder.Then download ,extract and move the " TWO " attached pngs to that folder. It will ask for replace. Click yes. Do the same in “drawable-xhdpi“ folder too. Not necessary. But just do.

For Device With XHDPI Add the Pngs to XHDPI Folder

For Device With HDPI Add the Pngs to HDPI Folder

(2) Then go to res/values folder and find ids.xml file. Open it with Notepad++ ( Right Click and then Edit With Notepad++ ) . Then add this line at the end

false


Save it and close it.

(3) Now go to res/values/strings.xml and add this line at the end

Quote:
