Question [Q] Overriding Buttons without 3Minit

3Minit was pretty great. But development stopped and it was pulled from the app store. And I have neither the framework nor the corresponding settings app backed up anywhere to re-install. Honestly, cosmetics aren't a big deal to me, so I can perfectly well get by without most of those functions. But the one thing I care about is also the one thing I haven't found a fitting alternative for: changing button behavior.

To be clear, here is what I used to have my device doing:

Menu Long Press - Launch Colornote

Home Long Press - Screenshot
Home Double Tap - Recent Apps

Back Long Press - Kill app

Now, I know that there are xposed modules like wanamp that will let me restore my old settings to the back and home button. But I haven't found a solution that lets me alter what the menu button does too. I want to be able to launch Color Note from anywhere with a long press once again.

Solutions?

It is only for those with a stock rom, is it not? Because I am using Stock(ish) v06.

No you can also use it on custom Roms.

Lemme know how it goes. BTW it's an Xposed Module, so you need to have Xposed framework installed first.
