You may have loved them, or you may have hated them, but with the advent of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) also came the removal of hardware buttons. As a result, it produced a sleek overall phone design and gave buttons such as Back, Menu and Multitasking, a new home on the phone’s screen.
The Galaxy S may have seen a lot of development in the realm of ICS-themed custom ROMs but none of them had on-screen buttons that other phones running Ice Cream Sandwich did, like the Galaxy Nexus. Thanks to paintball23456, member of XDA Developers, now even Galaxy S users can have the whole Ice Cream Sandwich experience. The process is not newbie-friendly, however following the instructions carefully should produce satisfying results.
You’ll need a few things:
It is important to note that the Android SDK and the APK Tool need to be added to the system path or none of this will work.
Once you’ve got everything set up, you can now begin. To prevent confusion, we’ve broken down the whole process into separate sections.
Once your phone reboots, you can now enjoy Ice Cream Sandwich’s on-screen keys on your Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000.
