More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative.

Supremacy Script Brings Many Tweaks to One Spot
Finding a good set of tweak can sometimes be difficult. While there are popular choices available, some users would prefer to have many such tweaks in a single package. This is exactly what Supremacy Script by XDA Senior Member emwno hopes to accomplish.
It was initially released for the Sony Xperia Arc. However, the script should be compatible with most devices. A few of the features include:
-Better ram allocation
-More free ram (clearing cache)
-UI processed by GPU
-Loopy smoothness tweak
-Apps zipaligned at every boot
-SQlite database optimizations
-Smoother LWP animation
-more i don’t remember
-All devices with init.d support
-All GB ROMs
-All ICS ROMs
-All JB ROMs

If you’re looking for a quick, recovery-flashable tweaking script, this one may be one for you.
