Soft Key Enabler for HTC One X Running Jelly Bean

Most development work as of late has revolved around getting Jelly Bean onto various devices. As the rush of new Jelly Bean releases slows down, there are more and more mods for Jelly Bean being released. Granted, most of these are patches or fixes to issues on ROMs, but there are a few out there that contain theme elements or other miscellaneous tweaks. Now, HTC One X users running Jelly Bean have one to enable soft keys and disable capacitive buttons.

Created by XDA Senior Member kibaa12 with some help by Recognized Themer mattmanwrx, the mod is currently only compatible with CyanogenMod 10. It comes in the form of a custom recovery-flashable update.zip. Those wishing to revert simply need to flash the second file, which undoes all changes. Not all is perfect, though. As kibaa12 states:

HEADS UP: This Will Disable the Extra feature added in settings>system (tho once u have on screen why would you want to modify the hardware keys)

Glitch: pressing the disabled Capacative keys while trying to use touch on screen becomes unresponsive reverted the second you un touch the cap keys

These aren’t very big problems though. The screen freeze issue only occurs while the capacitive buttons are physically pressed, and it stops as soon as you stop touching the button. Otherwise, users have reported the mod working quite well.

For more details, check out the original thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
