[App] VJPoOf - Wired Headset Remapper et al (unfinished)
Guys, responding to this query:
I'm releasing a solution to allow you to remap the double tap and press and hold functions of the wired headset
on the Blackstone. This may well work for other recent HTC devices, but given that I dropped out about the time of the dinosaurs, I'm not up to date with their peculiarities. Try it, it can't do much harm...
Ok, I haven't publicly released anything for a long, long time, so herewith, an unfinished portion
of VJPoOf (which stands for VJPowerOff).
<the science bit>
VJPoOf is basically a selection of my VJBrisk
tools, updated to pass command lines, and searching for only specified target .exe and .lnk files.
</the science bit>
HTC have made it quite easy to override the redial and voice dial functions from the hard wired headphones
. Basically, change the following applications in the\windows folder
for the redial command
for the Cyberon voice dialer
An easier way to do this is to extract the zip enclosed (on your pc); then:
Drop the files Redial.exe and SDDialer.exe into your \windows\ folder.
They will overwrite the original HTC apps, but don't worry, just delete those two files to get the originals back. I also enclose the originals in the .zip.
Ok, so extract the two files into \windows\.
Next, somewhere on your PDA, find the app you want to launch instead of the double tap or long hold on the headset.
Make a shortcut
to that app (use gsfinder or similar on your PDA). Then, you must rename
the shortcut VJRedial.lnk
Copy these two shortcuts into your \windows\ folder, and hey presto, customisable headset commands.
I have one configured to toggle the device lock state, and the other to launch a music player.
As I said, this is a pre-release of a portion of VJPoOf, which will allow you to customise most of the other buttons on the Blackstone as well, short and long power button presses, red button etc. Might do some other stuff too, later
Let me know if your device poofs into smoke.
Just for fun, I've released another tiny app from this suite I made to shut the Blackstone down instantly
. It might work on other HTC phones, untested.
There will be no warnings, shutdown animations or anything, just instant power off (not
standby), so please ensure you've finished working on whatever is open on your phone.
