Anyone know if it is possible to make it so the search button takes a pic when in camera. I wish the dx2 had the dx camera button

Unfortunately, I've tried to find a working way to get that done but I can't find a way to get it. There are ways to change the layout of the buttons, but for some reason I couldn't get it working. Ill keep looking and let you know what I find, lol because I want it too!

I have mine like that right now. /system/usr/keylayout. Open the tegra-kbc.kl file in a text editor and find the line that says key 217 SEARCH WAKE_DROPPED and comment it out by putting a # in front of it. Then just add a line that says key 217 CAMERA . Reboot your phone and you should have it.

Ah, I see. I tried just adding CAMERA to that line. I was trying to get it to still work as a 'search' when your not using the camera - but who uses that anyways? Nice job.

So it worked with no side effects? Id probably like no search key outside of the camera it annoys me

I know what you mean. I never use that search button anyway. It's one of the first things I do after flashing a new rom. That's one thing to be aware of. Flash a new rom and you have to do it again.

In the same file, is it possible to make the volume buttons wake the phone? I see it shows wake for the home button. And I dont know what wake_dropped means for the menu and back buttons.

Yes, it's possible. WAKE means that if that button/key is pressed while the phone is asleep (screen is off), it will wake the phone up and return it to the app/lock screen.
WAKE_DROPPED means that if that button/key is pressed while the phone is asleep (screen is off), it will 'wake' the phone, but it will NOT return it to the application/lock screen.

Basically, WAKE = unlock phone, WAKE_DROPPED = Doesn't unlock phone.

Thanks. Will doing this disable the volume buttons though? I changed the search button to the camera button as was described and, obviously, the search function is gone. Will that happen with the volume buttons. If so, I dont want to mess with it.
