Hello. Very pleased to have received my Gemini today.

Regarding the Android navigation bar (with the back, home and task switcher buttons), is it possible to re-order them? Currently they are in order, from top-to-bottom:
  • Back
  • Home
  • Task switcher
I am used to my Android phones, which when held in landscape instead show the icons in order, from top-to-bottom:
  • Task switcher
  • Home
  • Back
Is it possible to change the Gemini to also show the icons in that order?

Please note that I am currently on the stock firmware, 09052018. I have not yet updated to see if this is now a feature in the stock firmware, but when searching I haven't seen any mention of this. If this requires rooting, I'm happy to do so. Many thanks in advance.

The recent update did not alter the apps bar for the better.
Nothing changed.

What I did to change the order of apps in the horizontal apps bar (default position) was remove them all via the apps bar.
Then added them back on to it in the order I prefer.

Cheers.

Thanks for the reply, but I think we're talking about different things. I'm talking about the native Android navigation bar, on the right-hand edge of the screen when in landscape.

Here's how it appears on the Gemini:

Here's how it appears on other Android phones I've used, while in landscape:

I'd like the Gemini to look the same as the second picture, with the buttons in that order, as that is what I'm used to. I'm wondering if there's a way to do that. From a brief bit of research, I think I might be able to do this with Xposed, if rooted, but I've never used that before.
