Question [Q] [SGS2][Cyanogen 10.1.3] Remap home button

Hi there,

My phone is a SGS2 with CyanogenMod 10.1.3 stable installed.

I'm looking for a way to remap the physical Home button of my phone with the kill current app functionality.
I've already activated the developer mode and thus can kill an app with a long press on the return key. But it is not really convenient as I need to kill an app quicker (compared to the few seconds delay of the long press gesture).
I've also tried LMT Launcher but the kill-app gesture I've configured take too much time also. The insta-kill feature is what I'm looking for...

Can you help me?

Thanks in advance

You might be able to do that with xposed and a something like gravity box. Bear in mind gravity box isn't intended for CM though, so read the gravity box op thoroughly before you try. Else you may find a different module which can help you.

If you can't get it to work, a way that is guaranteed is to switch roms to one that has full hardware key rebinding... SlimKat for example.
