Default How to swap Menu and Back capacitive buttons in KitKat?

In Jellybean, I was easily able to go to System/usr/keylayout and modify the gpio-keys, sec_e-pen, and sec_touchscreen .kd files in order to swap the functionality of the Menu and Back capacitive buttons. (In other words, make the Back button open the menus, and the Menu button go back).
I can't figure out how to do it in KitKat though. It seems that the files have changed or moved.

Anyone know how to do this?

And in case someone asks:
Having the Back button on the left side just feels more natural to me. My phone has it like that too, and it's actually confusing when switching between it and my tablet. I keep pressing the wrong buttons

EDIT: Oh, and in case it matters, I'm using the P600 version of xKat.

I figured it out.
Everything is in the Generic.kd file now.
