Capacitive Buttons

Capacitive Buttons


Control the brightness of the capacitive buttons (the back, home, and recent tasks buttons) on several devices in the HTC One series. Root is required in order for this application to work, but it works with any ROM.

NOTE: The "Pro" version of this app is updated 2-4 weeks earlier than the free version, and thus has some bug fixes and new features not available in the free version. If you'd like to get the latest fixes and features earlier, the pro version is for you. Otherwise, you can live a full and happy life with the free version. See the description in the pro version for details about differences between the free and pro versions.

Officially Supported Devices:
- HTC One X (evita, North American variant, dual-core)
- HTC One X (endeavoru, International variant, quad-core)
- HTC One X+ (evitareul)
- HTC One
- HTC One S
- HTC Sensation

Unofficially Supported Devices:
- HTC One V
- HTC Desire HD
- HTC Evo 3D
- Droid MAXX
- LG Optimus G

The "unofficially supported" devices have had at least one report of working but no development effort has (yet) been focused on them.
