Enable On Screen Nav Soft Keys/Disable Capacitive/Home Buttons
This is a Mod I did for CM10
It will enable the on screen navigation soft keys. it will also disable the capacitive buttons AND the home button.
I used the Framework-res.apk from the CM 10 Preview 6 build.
This will NOT disable the capacitive lights, just the keys themselves. To disable the lights go to settings -> Advanced -> Screen and uncheck "Backlight"
Why did I do this mod?
Well, I really liked the on screen nav buttons on the GNEX. At the time I had the Galaxy S II and enabled them with AOKP but as much as I liked them I hated losing the screen real estate on the 4.3 inch screen. When I got the GS3 I felt the screen was big enough to give up a little screen RE for the nav buttons. I also did it because when I play games or hold my phone in landscape I would accidently hit the capacitive buttons so this mod also eliminated that for me
EDIT: Member Has posted a way to universally do this on CM 10 and other roms! Taking this mod a step further and making it easy on me so I wouldnt have to do the mod every time the CM 10 FW changed:
