    I did a search for this on the Forum, could not find anything. When I use various screen dimmers to read browsers/RSS feeds at night, I'd like to dim the 3 buttons (menu, home, back) as well. Any way to do that? Thanks.

    I wonder if there's a 3rd party app that can handle that.

    I've tried several 3rd party apps - none of them worked.

    A couple thoughts:

    You could try some of the apps that enable immersive mode.

    Firefox reader mode blacks out the buttons.

    I tried Firefox Reader mode after reading your note above and many webpages don't display the little book icon so I installed "automatic reader view." The reader mode doesn't seem to do anything at all - doesn't invert colors, doesn't hide the soft keys?

    You could enable immersive mode system-wide to hide the navigation bar.

    I have covered some incredibly intrusive led pilot lights with electrical or duct tape. You have to wonder when you can do the NY Time crossword in a darkened room with an led charger!!!

    You are a god. It took a long time to figure out (have a Mac so ended up having to download and install Android Studio a la How to install ADB and Fastboot on Mac OS X or Windows which took forever and a huge amount of space on my hard drive (not to mention, at least on my Mac I had to do "cd /Users/<user>/Library/Android/sdk/platform-tools")) but it WORKED!!!!!!!! So happy and relieved that I, as a clueless newbie, did not brick my phone. Thank you thank you thank you!
