OK folks, here you go, ICS Button Bar MODS for EncounterICS

This will add the bottom button bar to EncounterICS Beta2/3. Be sure to thank Bretth18 for getting this done, I was banging my head against the wall for hours due to computer issues and he stepped up and got it going finally.

This will also disable the hardkey lighting, giving it a cleaner look overall.

-DO NOT flash this in the same CWR session as the ROM, while it has worked for some, others have gotten into bootloops because of it. So flash the ROM and GApps in the same session, reboot and go through all the standard setup stuff, then boot into CWR again to flash the mods.

-The button bar mod (first one), is required regardless of which other mod you want to use (except for the launcher mod). The menu/search button mods, and themes are separate. These mods can be safely flashed in one CWR session, as long as you have rebooted since installing the ROM. Also, the menu/search mods an themes will overwrite each other, so only one will work at a time. The Undo for those will work for any of them.

It is recommended that you wipe cache before flashing.

Launcher Mod

This shrinks the dockbar on the Trebuchet launcher to regain some of the space lost due to the Button Bar.
As you can see in the image below, I pushed it down as tight as I could without reducing the icon size, which is not possible without reducing the icon size in the app drawer and on the homescreen as well.


(Don't worry, the ghosting of the original layout doesn't actually show on the phone

Search Button/Dual Menu Buttons:

Credit for this goes to Paul O'Brien at XDA, I just ported it to EncounterICS. This adds the Search button, puts menu buttons on both sides, and activates menu buttons at all times even when not visible, so you now have access to the homescreen menu from the soft keys.

I would just flash this to check it out, is it possible for you to add an undo zip for this mod by any chance ? If not I dont think I will try it out. But nice work

Software buttons are sick thanks for the mod. Had to disable the search bar because it made my home screen all pinched looking

Any way to make the menu buttons stay in the button bar? OK I saw something similar to this when the gnex came out but I think it was gnex specific

I'm on a Samsung Fascinate, do you think this would work for me? ICS 4.0.1...
