Hi All,

There is a way to enable gestures for non-fullscreen devices.

In build.prop file add this line: qemu.hw.mainkeys=0
(Or change the existing line to 0 from 1.)

This works for example in my Mi Note 2 global running Xiaomi.eu weekly 8.5.24
MIUI 9.6 android 8.0

But it has no effect in my Mi Max1 (helium) running Xiaomi.eu weekly 8.4.26
MIUI 9.6 android 7.0

Can this be fixed?

Gestures are supposed to be enabled in MIUI from version 9.5 I read somewhere.

Ok, no interest . . . Sigh . . . can feel the EOL creeping up on the good old trusty Max1.

Now, are gestures available in the latest MIUI 10 8.7.12 EU weekly?

Don't want to bother flashing it if not, everything else is working fine on 8.4.26.
