Here is a Little Tutorial for making a 5 Button Navigation Bar mod. This tutorial should work in all sony devices that running Android version 4.1 and above. Tested in 4.4.4 too. Works well.
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.
- One PC
- Little Knowledge of Decompiling, Editing XML Files and Signing Apks
- Notepad ++
- Some Brains :silly:
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

(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
Save it and close it.
(3) Now go to res/values/strings.xml and add this line at the end
save the xml file and close it..
(4) Then go to res/layout and find navigation-bar.xml and open it with Notepad++. U can find this
