Default [Q] Menu button change to ICS recent apps button

Hi.-
My question is if posible remplace the menu button of the galaxy s2, for ICS recent apps button, in a ICS rom.-
I see this post for nexus:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=21501238

I follow the same step, editing the files edit
keylayout files..

/system/usr/keylayout/


cypress-touchkey.kland mxt224_ts_input.kl

But nothing happend.-

Is posible this?

Bye, sorry for my english

I love it too but theres a gripe when the app is not ICS optimized. A bar with 3 dots will appear stealing precious screen real estate. Thats what happens to HTC One X. But i admit that long pressing the home key and wait 2 seconds to show the recent apps is a drag thats y i never use it.

The idea is, put the recent app key in the menu button, and long press do for menu options.-
This is for instant acces to recen app , and no damage the home button, becouse is a mechanic button.-
And is without nav bar, and not reduce the screen device.-

Yes it's possible and very easy too because this feature has been implemented in all CM9/CM9 based and CM10/CM10 based Roms.

Swyped from my Samsung Galaxy SII
