Greetings!Thanks for all your updates! I hadn't used my Fire 8 Tab 2018 for some months, and when I rebooted it the home and recent nav icons did not work when pressed, and not sure what to do I re-enabled updates and the icons disappeared entirely, also breaking Nova Launcher Beta 7. Thanks to your new toolbox items, I was able to restore the nav icons, but now I am back to the home and recent not working --only Back does anything when pressed. Is there a Fire system item that I may have disabled somehow? I think it was on "complete debloat" months ago, but I tried simple debloat after the update to 188.8.131.52, and the tablet works fine other than the home and recent buttons, which are kind of essential. Is there anything I can do to avoid a complete restore to factory defaults? Thanks again
Yeah, I've noticed this can happen on rare occurrences. To resolve the issue we'll need to *delete a certain string from the settings database. Please open the Toolbox, launch an ADB Shell, and execute the following command:
settings delete secure sysui_nav_bar
After executing the command, I'd recommend to reboot the tablet. Once the tablet is rebooted, you should now be able to reapply your custom icons and your home/back buttons should now be working again as intended.
* - WARNING: This will remove your custom icons and navigation bar layout, so please proceed with caution.
