To enable softkeys, simply add the following line into your build.prop

qemu.hw.mainkeys=0
And reboot.
VOILA!

Oh, and BTW, is there away to get rid of the hardware key light in cm10? That would add to the soft key effect and save battery.

Go to /sys/devices/platform/msm_ssbi.0/pm8xxx-core/pm8xxx-led/leds/button-backlight/
Open brightness and max brightness, and set the number to 0.

Basic method from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1694375
It didn't stick the first time I tried it, but it seems to work now.

Edit: Never mind, reboot made it revert. Sorry.

if only there were a way to do this but still be able to use lg notification app. that would be awesome. i absolutely love having the on screen buttons, it just seems easier, maybe it's just me, but having them serve as notifications is extremely useful...

What lg notification app are you talking about? What ROM are you using?

    XDA's policy to is to put things like guides and tutorials in the General section. Development is for software only. Moved to General.
