Default Back Key not working.

Hello XDA!

The capacitive back key stopped working in my Optimus G all of a sudden. Home and menu are working fine as is the touch screen. I tried reflash but that didn't work. Using pacrom . Any ideas from anyone would be apprectiated. Using pie menu for now!

My phone has no warranty. I will flash original kdz and then try. I cant see how its a hardware issue since home and menu buttons work flawlessly.

Its the digitizer. Using touchscreen app i couldnt draw in the area immediately above the back button. Vertical swipes dont get detected but horizontal do. Does someone know how i can map double tap of home or menu to back? I ve tried keylayout but dont understand how to map double tap functionality?
