    Default disable back & menu button in certain apps

    Hello,
    Is there anyway that I can disable and re-enable the back and menu buttons on demand? I would like to disable these buttons when using certain apps like the YouTube app. Please help.
    Thanks in advance

    Ok. I don't think you can, even with root access.

    Only reason I was asking about the device is, if you had onscreen buttons, they fade away when a video is playing. You almost get a free tap (it does nothing but bring the buttons back to the foreground) and have to tap a second time to actually click back.

    Well, the problem is that my palm is always hitting the buttons which make me accidentally exit the app. Its not only the YouTube app that I'm concerned about. This happens to me while playing games as well.

    I have seen many people post codes to disable the buttons but they disable them completly which is no use for me.
