    I have gotten the inside of my phone wet and now the menu and back buttons click on their own, it's really annoying so I just want to disable the buttons and use assistant cursor that is built in the phone.

    Not unless your phone is rooted. If it is Rooted then Get a file explorer that can use the root to edit system files. Go to system, usr, keylayout, and open generic.kl with a text editor, find keys 158 and 139 and put a "#" sign in front of both. Save the file and reboot phone. Then go to settings and disable the light. They are now fully disabled.

    Additionally, Download this to get on screen buttons (Root required)

    My phone is rooted, and I have done this, but nothing happened. Can you suggest a file manager?
    I tried using es file manager and root explorer.

    I am able to change it through es file manager, but when I change it do I pit the # first (#key 139) or last(BACK#)

    Also make sure to enable developer options
    Enable Developer options by going into settings > about phone and press on the Build Number 7 times.

    Should work for both.keys 158 and 139 are both the capacitive keys. Try again? It worked on my old S5. Also are you on lollipop or still on kitkat?

    I downgraded to kitkat 4.4.4 so I can root my s5. What file editor did you use?

    I had root even on my lollipop GS5 and I did this on Lollipop. I used ES File Explorer.

    Except the the Verizon model G900V on the latest OE1 firmware!

    Verizon OE1 update prevents rooting/downgrading
