So I am to impatient to wait for the 4.4 update where hopefully we will get the recent apps button to replace the menu key so I did what I could for now.

You have to be rooted and have a root file manager.
  1. open the file manger and go to system
  2. then to usr
  3. then to keylayout
  4. now open the Generic.kl
  5. scroll down to key 139
  6. open as a text file
  7. change from "MENU" to "APP_SWTICH"
  8. no "" needed
  9. save the file and reboot

Honestly i did it in the sec_e-pen.kl and sec_keyboard.kl and sec_touchscreen.kl just to be sure. I dont know if it is needed but i did anyway and have had no side affects.

Again if this has been posted before feel free to delete or move just i havent seen it so i thought others would want to know
