[Mod-Deprecated] Map Recent Apps Soft Key to Menu
Alright, this is only halfway done, but until I hear back from the One X devs and remove the menu software button, this will at least give you the menu softkey. I'm not going to bother making a flashable zip until I'm finished with everything, so, for now, follow these instructions.
1. SuperUser permissions (root)
2. Root Explorer (or a similar app with root permissions and the ability to edit any file as text)
1. Navigate to /system/user/keylayout
2. Find the synaptics-rmi-touchscreen.kl AMD long-press on it. Select "Open in text editor."
3. Change the line for key 249 (APP_SWITCH) to MENU.
4. Use the on-screen menu key for the last time to select Save and Apply Changes.
Disclaimer: This means you will lose the ability to access the recent apps menu. I never really use it much, but I know some people do. So if you really need that, hold off until I update with a flashable zip (or the proper files to push if we don't have a recovery out already).
As soon as I figure out how to remove the on screen button, I'll give a real update and freshen up the OP. This will be my first public mod, so try to cut me a little slack, and keep in mind I'm not really a dev, I'm just trying to help out and expand my knowledge a little. Who knows, maybe I'll keep picking up on things and put out a theme, and maybe even a rom of my own eventually!
Thanks to the following who have helped me or whose tools I have used!
OMJ - For the base 1.13.651.1 deodexed rom. (I was using the kitchen wrong, because I am n00b)
sk806 - For pointing me to the right apktool and baksmali versions, as well as guiding me through the process when I effed up.
TeamWin for the awesome recovery (and, of course, toastcfh, who is a BOSS!)
The devs of Root Explorer, because that app does EVERYTHING! You can edit keyboard layouts on the fly and reboot to apply!
And whoever is going to help me write my first updater-script so this can be flashable when it's done!
