Customize Your Samsung Continuum With Themed Android Soft-Keys!

Despite the endless ocean of desirable Android phones available for the choosing, at some point you may have heard something about the Samsung Continuum. Though closely related to the Fascinate, and the rest of the Galaxy S family for that matter, it has one distinguishing feature: its soft-keys are not dedicated keys at all. Rather, the keys are simply overlain icons atop the sole 4″ screen, dividing the main screen portion and the bottom ticker area.

You may be thinking that this could lead to all sorts of fun, involving skinned soft keys. Thanks to the work of XDA forum member trailblazer101, you are now able to do precisely this. In the words of the developer:

So, in case you didn’t know already, the Continuum’s soft keys are actually part of the one full screen… Which means we can change them with a little effort.Hit me with ideas with what you want to see within this thread.

Here are the zips so far. You need CWM.
So far:

  • Original (duh :P)
  • Dark Green
  • Light Green
  • Light Blue
  • Purple
  • Dots!
  • Text!

Are you dying to customize the look of your Continuum’s soft-keys? If so, be sure to continue on to the original thread!
