hey guys, i was REALLY surprised when i found out it doesnt take photos via the R button, its is in the PERFECT place, in portrait fair enough (you might accidentally hit it with your palm), but in landscape, its a must have!!

does anyone know how to re-map the software button to a hardware button?

ps: LOVING the phone

That would be very nice indeed.
Could even use the l trigger for the focus reset or some other thing like the flash

we could use it for pre-focus, at the moment if you hold in the capture button it resets the focus :]

Totally agree with RB for taking photos, someone must beable to work abit of magic and create a keymapping app... id love to use LB as a back button when surfing too. when your holding the phone in your palm LB is in a nice place to be a back button.

ya man try it out it wont mess anything up on the phone or anything its just a test is all, and i say it again if the "R" button works for taking pics in there there MUST be some way to map that key to the camera(maybe with an unlocked bootloader in the not so distant future)
