SoftKeyZ Root

SoftKeyZ Root


This application will let you change the Softkeys / Navigation Buttons fast and easily on your rooted Android device. This root app comes with more than 150+ different softkeys to choose from and the growing online database proivides even more user-submitted ones. If you got some navigation buttons you would like to see in this app just upload them to the gallery. Until I've added them, you can just use the import feature for these soft keys. This application needs root and "busybox" to be installed on non-nexus ROMs. This app will NOT overwrite your applied themes, or enable the navigation buttons on devices without them.

known problems:
- Sometimes your wallpaper can reset itself.
-The app is not compatible with most Samsung devices as well as LG devices, which are not running an AOSP based ROM.
-Especially not working on the LG G3 unless you are using a custom (AOSP) ROM.

-works great on Nexus 4, 5, 7 and 10 and HTC One M8 (S-Off) and most Motorola devices!

WARNING: This app modifies system files and should only be used with a flashable backup of your current ROM on your device. The developer is not responsible for any damages.

Recent changes:
↳ SoftKeyZ will *not* enable on-screen navigation buttons on devices that use hardware buttons!

Version 14.5.6:
-fast reboot for KitKat
-RAM optimizations, using Universal Image Loader (nostra13), also declared large heap size for low ram devices (moto G)
-Import Buttons: Now allows for more sources then just the gallery. (but be careful, this can crash the android gallery so turn "Crop image" off)

Wouldn't allow to go back to stock I started by saving my original configuration, then when switching back it oversized icons and makes it look ridiculous. Seems like only way to get back to stock is to reflash system. Way more hassle than promised, please fix and upload the HTC one m8 buttons.

Keys aren't proportioned correctly on my moto e, the back key is bigger than the others. Also, is there a way to reset to default? Selecting the old style keys still makes the back button bigger.
