[Q] Possible to remap recent apps key to long-press for menu -or- show 3-dots menu?

I've got a Nexus style rom on my Evo LTE. There's no 3-dots menu button showing up in apps and long pressing the recent apps button doesn't do it either. I've seen the mod to change the recent apps button to menu and long press home to get recent apps, but I still prefer to have the recent apps button like it was. Any ideas?

Hello. First, you should be more specific about which Rom you're running. Second, most custom AOSP roms have the ability to remap the hardware buttons on the settings menu. You can set it to open recents on short press and open menu with long press.

Thumbs up Xposed Framework > Xposed Additions
Ok, I already had the Xposed Framework installed and after I identified the Xposed Additions module, remapping the keys worked great.

For reference
