How to Enable Navigation Bar (Soft Keys) on any Android Phone


This guide will teach you how to create custom navigation button for your Andriod 4.0+


Before proceeding, you must know that following this procedure may render your phone inoperable (bricked state).

This happens very rarely. Dsmedia24 will not be held responsible for any damage caused to your device in any case.

Follow all instructions carefully...

How to Enable Soft Keys:

Section 1: Pre-requisites
  • You must have root access on your device.


  • Make sure your device is at least 70% charged to avoid complications during the process.
Section 2: Procedure

  • Open your preferred file manager and mount the system partition as read-write in stead of read only. Grant superuser access when it prompts.
  • Go to the system folder present in the root of file system. i.e the path- /system


  • Now open the file  “build.prop” in any Text Editor. For Root Explorer users, long click on “build.prop” file and tap on “Open with Text Editor”. (Before editing this file, for a safety, copy this file to the external memory card and save as a backup.)

  • Now add the following line to this file at the end:
qemu.hw.mainkeys=0
  • Save and Exit.
  • Now reboot your device.
