Default [Q] Disable softkey lights in Google Edition ROM

Hi there!

I have a general question about the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition. More precisely I am using a common european Version of the i9505 with Jamals Google Edition ROM. Is there any possibility to disable the softkey lights completely like it is possible in the original Samsung software? I think they don't look really good in the SGS4 and it is annoying me. I couldn't find anything about that on Google so I'm posting it here.

I have been looking as well, but there is nothing that works, all the apps in play store are old. If I get time I'm gonna have a look myself see if I can find the code and turn em off.

Found out how to disable touch key backlights. Find the file in the screen shot and set the maximum brightness to 0.

Great job, thanks a lot!

*edit: I just recognized that the settings I made for the brightness like you told me just work fine until I restart the phone. Then the touch key lights glow again. Is there a possibility to set this permanently?

Anyone knows where this file is present in case of I9000 Galaxy S ? Because there is no folder called leds.
