I have a Galaxy Nexus (rooted, if that helps) and I want to disable the on-screen buttons (back, home, apps), also called the Navigation Bar. Now there are plenty of apps (e.g. Hide Bottom Bar) that remove the buttons, but since they are based on killing some Android process (I believe), they also remove the Status Bar (on top of the screen).
Now I would like to keep the status bar, but only remove the on-screen buttons (because I would like to use gestures instead). Any way to achieve this?
