I'm using Microsoft Lumia 532 with w10mobile. The navigation bar hardware keys (back, home, search) of my phone are damaged. So I need the Soft Navigation Bar on my phone. But my device doesn't have it, so I Google for it. And I found that to enable Soft Navigation Bar on an unsupported Lumia device.
For that I have to Interop Unlock my device and make some registry edit, for that I have to deploy a root tool which helped me to Interop Unlock and also deploy customPFD registry editor and it also provides the option for enable soft navigation bar. And by enabling it I successfully got the navigation bar but as a side effect suddenly some apps started crashing, not even open at all, some are showing splash screen and some are not, but close immediately.
Only built for Windows 10 apps ran smoothly, and Windows Phone 8.1 like WhatsApp, UC browser and many other apps close immediately after opening.
These steps I followed for solving the issues but nothing happened:
- Reinstalled all the apps
- Restore the registry value to default
- Uninstall both root tool and customPFD
- Manually edit the registry
- Install INTEROP TOOL which edit the registry without the need of interop unlock, got the nav bar but still same problem
Hard reset solved the problem but I lost my nav bar! How to stop those app crashing problem without hard reset and without losing my soft navigation bar?
