    Not sure what happened here, but im running cm 7.1, and must have done something, but the softkeys on the bottom of the screen are gone! Any ideas on how to make them come back?

    Thanks for the help

    If you can get into settings, you can re-enable them under Cyanogenmod->Tablet tweaks.

    A assume your status bar is still showing, right?

    Alternately, you can use something like Button Savior or Virtual Botton Bar, both of which I can recommend..

    Actually the whole status bar is gone. Which leads me to think launcher pro settings, to unhide the status bar, but I cant get into launcher pro settings either!!

    Maybe I will have to uninstall and reinstall launcher pro?

    Update: that didnt work. still no status bar or softkeys...help please!! haha, thanks!@

    Mine have disappeared on occasion, but usually pop up again. There is a key setting to unhide in settings, but sounds like you can't get there just yet.

    Did you try a reboot? You shouldn't have to reinstall anything.

    Mine disappear every so often, a reboot usually does the trick.

    Depending on which launcher you're using, the home button should bring them back.
