1. You need to have root access on your device.

  2. Install Root Explorer or ES File Explorer or any file manager.

  3. Make sure your device is at least 70% charged to avoid complications during the process.


  • Open Es File Manager or Root Explorer and give root permissions to it (I’m using Es File……. but the process is same so don’t worry and if you don’t know how to give root permissions then see the images down below)

  • Open Build.prop with text editor (if you don’t know how then see the images below and I’m using Asus Zenfone 5 a501cg so my build.prop is build.a501cg.prop ,many devices only have build.prop so don’t get confused)

  • Tap on 3 dots on the right hand-side then tap on edit.

  • Now add the following line to this file at the end :- “qemu.hw.mainkeys=0

  • Now press back there’s pop like below

  • Reboot and Enjoy :-)

HOW TO disable Soft Keys:-If you don’t like soft keys and want to disable it 

  • so just add # before qemu.hw.mainkeys=0,
  • Ex: #qemu.hw.mainkeys=0 <- like this
  • Reboot and Enjoy :-)
