I'm trying to remap the capacitive buttons on my phone. My goal is to swap back and recents. I tried severals tutorials, but no result, modifing /system/usr/layout/generic.kl and rebooting does absolutely nothing. Neither does using Xposed Additions. Rooted 4.4. If anyone has any thoughts that would be awesome!

Well, first, questions go in the forums marked for questions. Try that and then maybe we can talk

The Moderator can move the thread... Thank you.

The keys are not movable or even rotatable. Hence their fixed appearance in both screen modes. They are hard mapped. They are not even in screen space! Rather a fixed display item of sorts.

Correct but their function can be replaced.
