Default [MOD|1.26|1.28|1.29] Disable the annoying ICS 3-dot Menu | Aroma **May-05**

This modification will give you the full resolution for all non-ICS apps. I guess many of you have been waiting for this.

The Window-Switcher Key (right one) will be remapped to the Menu button. This key will be usable system-wide!

**update** The recent app's key is remapped to long-pressing home
**update #2** I've made a cleaner removal of the 3-dot menu;
-> the screen-overlay is now fully usable
-> the keyboard has the arrow-keys
-> no more changes to SystemUI.apk, the zip includes the stock version now
**update #3** by popular request of the i-want-to-long press-home-as-menu fanboys, i've made a zip, fullscreen-v2-lp_home_menu.zip
it contains stock qwerty.kl & stock SystemUI.apk
**update #4** support for 1.28.401.9
**update #5** Added Aroma installer
**update #6** support for 1.29.401.7

**update #7** fixed the arrow keys I've broken in update #5, all versions

Root is required, duh


Use on deodexed ROM's based on 1.26.x/1.28.x/1.29.x only(tested on 1.26.401.2 & 1.28.401.9 & 1.29.401.7)



Use the attached aroma installer (all versions included, 1.26/1.28/1.29/stock) with CWM recovery


There are some re-odexed zip's here (I do not/will not provide odexed versions): http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=373 & http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=279

Thanks; not useful to me personally until it's a secondary function of the task switcher button, but I'm sure plenty of others will be thrilled. :)

Works perfect on my device. And it disables the up down right left buttons in keyboard in old apps.

What about a double tap opening task switcher and long press full screen ?

Worked perfectly on my rooted stock ROM. Lost the function to switch apps though.

However, I still have a small black bar where the menu bar used to be in some apps. Is it normal? My ROM version is 1.26.707.2. Could that be the cause?
