Control the brightness of the capacitive buttons (the back, home, and recent tasks buttons) on several devices in the HTC One series. Root is required in order for this application to work, but it works with any ROM.

See the description in the pro version for details about differences between the free and pro versions.

    My GS4 with a 4.4.4 ROM doesn't support Xposed and had no option in menus to disable my lights on touch. This app works perfect with my phone. Not just for HTC for sure!

    See the purpose for this is that,, when u have installed a ROM n have onscreen buttons on them then u don't like both performing on a similar time... So u can lower the brightness.. N enjoy the home screen
