android l nav bars stitched

Want the Android L soft navigation bar (on-screen buttons) for your device without Android L? You’re in luck… well, so long as you’re rooted and have a properly functioning installation of the Xposed Framework, anyway.

XDA user Prithvee has created a .APK file that will allow you to give your phone a bit of Android L flavor with a few simple clicks. Simply install the .APK file, enable the module inside Xposed Framework, and restart your phone for good measure. Voila — you have what you see above.

Many folks expressed distaste with the newly styled navigation buttons. I personally share that sentiment — I think it looks a bit toyish and takes away from that “grown-up” feel Android has developed. But we all have our own tastes, and if this is right up your alley then be sure to grab it ahead of getting the real deal itself.
