I'm doing a few tweaks on my phone, mainly not using the capacitive keys as menu and back, and using the home key as the app switcher, and using the nav bar for those three tasks. Here's what I've got so far.

I edited a few files under system/usr/keylayout

The Menu and Search key layouts were found under sec_touchkey.kl(Home was also found under this, but I had to also edit sec_keys.kl and sec_key.kl to get the home key as the app switcher)

Here's the default settings.

key 139 MENU VIRTUAL
key 158 BACK VIRTUAL
key 102 HOME
key 217 SEARCH

Here's what I set them to.

key 139 CALL VIRTUAL
key 158 CAMERA VIRTUAL
key 102 APP_SWITCH
key 217 SEARCH

Changing the roles of keys 139 and 102 worked, but Camera does not open the camera. I've tried assigning different roles to key 158 and they've worked except for the camera role. So I'm thinking CAMERA is not the correct event name to open the camera up....

http://developer.android.com/referen...KEYCODE_CAMERA

That's where I got the keyEvent listings from.

Rom is in my signature.
