I'm using the desire build 5.7 with cotulla's new zimage.
i've searched High and low to see if someone has posted it already and couldn't find a solution.
I have had a similar issue with trying to use android.
I have a euro hd2 with 2_12_50_02_2, using chucky gtx rom, installed following task 29.
The rom seems to work well in windows with the problem of non-functioning hard key buttons in the WINMO also. It seems impossible to assign functions to the hard keys via the windows settings - only the send key option is displayed. The send key (green) button works fine for bringing up the dial pad and the end key (red) works fine also. The start button appropriately brings up the windows menu in this rom, though i have noticed that it does not work on other roms. Currently my home key and back key do not appear to do anything in the WINMO under chucky gtx rom!!
This presents no problems in WINMO as htc sense is easily navigated use touchscreen only and to be honest i never even touch the hard keys. However, this presents a massive problem in ANDROID - the android becomes impossible to navigate as I cannot ever go back or use the home key to get to the main screen. This is the same in sense or launcher mode.
I am using a clean fat 32 4gb class 2 micro sd, desire build v 5.7 from gamesquare and tried all the latest zimage files from cotulla and others but always the same problem. the send key is working fine but then i cannot get out of the dial pad. pressing the end key puts the sense in lock and screen off and i can long press this to power down but if i unlock then i am just stuck at dialpad or where ever i was when i locked. the windows key seems to bring up context menu fine and long press brings up key board in android. The home button does seem to wake from sleep sometimes i think, back button does not seem to work at all.
I have tried changing the rootcfs as well but this did not do anything. I had the same problem on FROYO build so im guessing it might not be an android problem. I am using JMZ dual boot on new rom installs without any other programs on windows or anything else other than android on the microsd.
I have not tried any stock roms to see if they solve the button issue in WINMO but cant really understand why they dont work so well in ANDROID or are they linked as android is ontop of windows?
Ihave found a workaround by installing "soft home key" app from market place which is helpful. but still looking for a fix. All very frustrating!!!
Searched everywhere on xda for answers to no avail. even googling for days!!!
PLEASE HELP. I think im not alone if above post is anything to go by
