Hello

I know some of you already knows this. So if you already known this, you can leave it. This is for new comers like me


You all know that the default navbar for XperiaL only 3 buttons, back-home-recents app... So we'll make 2 additional button, thats are lock & menu..
This extra button are very usefull, i think..

Oke Let's Start

Needed :

+ Knowledge of compile-decompile APKs
+ Signing APKs
+ Root & Deodex
+ Notepad++

[1] You have to find 5 icon for our new 5 navbar..you can search on this forum, or you will made the icons by yourself,doesnt matter..the important is you gets HDPI icons for HDPI device, xHDPI for xHDPI device...

[2] Decompile your SystemUI.apk...go to res/drawable-hdpi (for hdpi device)...make sure your icons have same name with icons from this folder...copy your icon to this folder...

[3]Go to res/values folder and search ids.xml and open it with Notepad++..Then add this line at the end before </resources>
 

Quote:
<item type="id" name="lock">false</item>
<item type="id" name="newmenu">false</item>

Save it and close

[4]
Go to res/values/strings.xlm... Add this line
 

Quote:
<string name="accessibility_lock">Lock</string>

Save it and close

[5]
Now go to res/layout folder and find navigation-bar.xlm open with Notepad++...

Scrip 1

[6]

7

Note
You can chang the DIP on step 5 and 6 to customizing..
And you can change the order of the menus on step 5..just move the line like what you want..that line make order back-menu-home-lock-recent (form the left)..you can change to menu-back-home-recent-lock or what you want..just MOVE the line..
