Changing Tracks using Volume Buttons
I really would like to change the function of the volume keys to skip to next or previous track by longpressing it. I got a hint how to do it, but I don't know how to adapt it to the S3:
you need to change the system command for these Volume keys
open up your Root file explorer & change the system to Read/Write--
navigate to System>usr>keylayout>mecha-keypad-vo.kl
open each in text editor by long pressing the file--
Look for the line "VOLUME_UP" and replace "WAKE" with "MEDIA_NEXT"
then, on "VOLUME_DOWN",replace command "WAKE" with "MEDIA_PREVIOUS"
*(note--this also removes your ability to change the VOLUME higher or lower using these keys--i'm just showing you all options)
1. I can't find these kl files on my S3. The quoted guide was for a Verizon HTC Thunderbolt so can anyone tell me which are the files which need to be changed on the S3 in the given folder?
2. As it says in this guide, by applying these changes to the keychar layout the function to increase and decrease volume with the buttons gets lost. This is not what i want, obviously it should change the volume on short press.
Thanks for your help.
