Hello to everyone reading this.
I just purchased a used HTC One X. I managed to work out everything that was wrong with it (including the wifi problem some HOX phones have) but I'm getting really frustrated with the non-functioning properly volume buttons.

The phone volume gets turned up spontaneously and I have to press volume down repeatedly to stop it from going up again.

I was just wondering if there is any app (or any other way) that disables the volume hard-buttons because it's really gotten an annoyance by now.

I have tried several apps that "save" your volume settings and revert it right after it's changed by the faulty volume buttons. But the volume changing doesn't stop unless I press Volume Down myself. It just keeps going up and the app reverting it back down again.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

Thank you both for your ideas. But unfortunately, I've never used Tasker so I wouldn't know how to remap the hardware keys.
It's gotten worse today, I can't stand it anymore. Taking it tomorrow for repairs...

Thank you so much! Definitely worth a try if it's not repairable and will let you know...
