    Home button hidden in camera app

    Is there any way to make the home button quit disappearing when in the camera app? This is breaking my poor mother's brain whenever she accidentally unlocks to the camera.

    The 3 dots should still be there at the bottom...center one is Home.

    It does have the dots, but it's not intuitive for her... To her eyes, the button she needs went away.

    There are other options for the lock screen. PIN, Pattern, Password, Face Unlock, and None.

    I don't think there is a way make it stop disappearing. The only way I know is to find a softkey mod that will change it. Not sure if there is one.

    Perhaps practice clicking on the bottom left corner of the screen? It will either go back if clicked on the right spot, else will make the dots bigger and actual button icons will be visible.

    Seriana, let me know if you're rooted. If so, I can make you something that won't make those buttons disappear.

    It is not (yet) rooted. I'd do so in a minute if it was my phone, but I'm hesitant to void the warranty on her brand new device. Is there a hack that would let me do it without unlocking the bootloader? Are there any gotchas rooting the Verizon / LTE version?

    I understand. You would have to be rooted because you would be changing out the small dots for the other/normal icons. Not sure about any gothchas to rooting it, tbh. But my phone did come from Verizon with the bootloader unlocked.
