Samsung confirms incoming fix for irritating NavStar bug with One UI 6.1

NavStar is a popular Good Lock module for Samsung phones that focuses on navigation bar customizations, even more so than One UI’s native navigation bar customizations.

It allows users to customize the icons, arrangements, and colors in the navigation bar. It has icon design presets and even allows us to select any emoji as a navigation bar button.

We can also add shortcuts for commonly useful features like taking screenshots or locking the phone directly to the navigation bar icons. It is a truly versatile module and, hence, has gained a fan following among Samsung users.

However, it seems that this module now has a very irritating bug, as reported by a user on the Samsung Community.

According to the affected user, it is alleged that when NavStar is activated, the navigation buttons in the navbar change their positions when typing on the on-screen keyboard. It seems that this bug crept in after the One UI 6.0 update.

This is a very irritating bug as on Samsung phones, the arrow navigation button is normally used to hide the on-screen keyboard after the user is typing. With this issue, the arrangement of the arrow button gets interchanged, leading to the user accidentally tapping on the circular button instead, closing the app, and sending the device to the home screen.

The affected user asked for a fix to this issue. Fortunately, a moderator from the Good Lock developer team clarified in a reply that they are aware of the bug and promised that it would be fixed on older phones with the upcoming One UI 6.1 update.

The One UI 6.1 update has already rolled out to the Galaxy S23 series, Galaxy Z Flip 5, and Z Fold 5, and is expected to reach the Galaxy S22 series, Z Flip 4, and Z Fold 4, alongside some other older devices in May 2024.

Hence, if you are a NavStar user facing this irritating bug, you just have to wait patiently for the One UI 6.1 update to roll out to your device and patch up this issue.
