Database Button Remapper Mod (For centre Button)

This is for A7 only

Root Required:

Step 1: Download http://www.mediafire.com/?948zkh88syo59do

Step 2: Open up, find the search key, click on the window,it will appear with two parameters:
ACTION: The function you want, default is SEARCH, where you select POWER
STATE: If you want keys work even when the screen is off (machine locked), then select WAKE_DROPPED, because I choose POWER, the POWER to work even when locked, so I choose WAKE_DROPPED, if you select the home key such, should be to NONE, if not the press will turn off the screen (in theory, have not tried the HOME key)

Step 3: Reboot

Glad I could help

It is the system launcher (default lacher error) i suppose
Try a different launcher
- Launcher Pro
- ADW Launcer EX
etc

these are better than stock
