Pre-requested :
2.Rooted phone
4.Any root file explorer


1 - Take framework-res.apk located in \system\framework\ and decompile it using apktool or apk manager

2 - Go into \res\values\bools.xml

3 - Search for:

<bool name="config_DisableHWKeyOptionMenu">false</bool>
and change it to

<bool name="config_DisableHWKeyOptionMenu">true</bool>
4 - Save file and recompile framework-res.apk

5 - Push the recompiled framework-res.apk to the device and reboot, now you should have 3 dot menu button in all s5 ported apps/stock touchwiz apps.
Now long pressing on home button won't bring up the recent apps, it will bring up google now. So now we need to remap the menu key to bring up the recent apps.

1 - Open /system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl with root explorer and change

key  139  MENU

key  139  APP_SWITCH
2 - Save file and reboot. Now menu key will bring up recent apps, just like S5.

@NimeniAltu im using auroro rom for s4 and there is 3dot menu...
But i want stock s4 menukey can u help me to do this .. i will give u roms ftamework file...?
