Fix for Softkeys/Notification Shade Issues on Android L

If you’re having any kind of weird issues with your softkeys not working properly, inability to pull-down your notification shade, or your softkeys themselves are actually missing don’t worry - there’s an easy fix.

Open up ADB and run this command:

adb shell am start -n

If still need to get yourself a copy of ADB you can download the full Android SDK or, if you’re on a Mac, you can grab the ADB & Fastboot from here. Need a refresher on ADB? This should help.
