Default buttons

Yes there is == its easy enough - there's a thread on here somewhere saying how . search for it - capacitive buttons try..

EDIT - here:

Using ES Explorer (or some other file explorer that gives you root) find /system/usr/keylayout/ and edit Generic.kl (you may want to copy it elsewhere on your /mnt/sdcard before you start editing)

Find the following keycodes in the list:

key 139 MENU WAKE_DROPPED
key 158 BACK WAKE_DROPPED
key 172 HOME
key 217 SEARCH



basically just remove the words after the numbers and replace with FOCUS, make them look like this:

key 139 FOCUS
key 158 FOCUS
key 172 FOCUS
key 217 FOCUS

One more thing I mistakenly changed key 127 so can someone please post the proper key 127 strand. My power and volume buttons aren't working
