    Saying bye to soft keys!

    I know nothing about code, but I've decided I want full use of my phone screen. So I have found a few tutorials, I'm adding all sorts of programs to my pc, and getting ready to jump in with both feet.

    So here is my home screen as it exists now (as some of you have already seen):uploadfromtaptalk1359411169310.jpg

    Hopefully in the next few days, I'll have everything ready and the time to attempt this. I already have a backup of my system, so hopefully if all goes wrong I'm a restore away from functioning again. If not, I'll be doing my second fastboot!

    This is intriguing.... So, what do you have in mind exactly, are you baking you own ROM ?

    Nice home screen, by the way.

    I would LOVE to build a ROM. I have a ton of learning to do before I get there (and not currently having a mentor + 3 children, will make it really slow going). So step one, will be editing the code in the framework-res.apk to get rid of the soft keys.

    Re: Saying bye to soft keys!

    So I can't get the framework-res.apk to recompile. Editing build.prop on a stock based ROM (I was on BDH) causes systemui.apk to force close. So I jumped back to CM10. I was able to edit the build.prop and not have systemui.apk FC. So here is the M with full screen use So far, I love it. I'm using LMT for navigation.

    *To get this look in CM10, add
    qemu.hw.mainkeys = 1
    to the end of build.prop (I used ROM Toolbox Pro to edit the build.prop).

    *Not responsible for damage done to your phone. Edit build.prop at your own risk. Always make a backup first.

    Thanks for this. I was wondering how I would get it like this on CM 10 because I noticed in your other thread there wasn't a framework for CM10, but I see because all we need is one line in prop
