Softkeys Fade Mod
Fades the softkeys to black after not touching it for some time
(for Xposed Framework)

Note: This doesn't hide the navigation bar at all. This only hides the softkeys/buttons.

What is SoftkeysFadeMod?
SoftkeysFadeMod is a unique found only in Cataclysm ROM by atl4ntis
It was originally posted here as a teaser.
This is slightly different from the one in Cataclysm ROM since it's code is not open sourced.

Why use SoftkeysFadeMod?
As said by the original creator himself here, it is to prevent AMOLED screen burn in's and give your phone a nice minimalist look.

Video?

Requirements?
• Have Xposed Framework installed

This module is not possible without:
• rovo89 for Xposed Framework
• C3C076 for some inspiration
• atl4ntis for inventing this idea

Great mod, but it's not working perfectly on Nexus 5, Kitkat 4.4.2.
You can download video here. Take a look at the softkeys.

Still, great idea, thanks, for creating this mod!

Works great on stock LG G2. I did find a bug though. The soft keys stay on the screen if I pull down the notification panel. Interestingly, it's only the two middle soft key buttons.
