[Info]:

Alright, as requested here is a remap of the silly faves button on the espresso launcher. This is from the CR_Mod 2.2 espresso build. However it should work fine with any rooted 2.2 non-odexed espresso.

This will allow you to re map it to open any app installed on your phone, or various system settings, or open a quick launch box with a selection of 8 or so apps. I did this method over on the G2 forums as it is easier than mapping to each individual app requested - not to mention even better since you can remap it any time on the fly.

You MUST have the launchkey app installed. It is available on the forums for free here, or better yet, help the developer out and buy the one on the market for a mere 0.65 cents. It's dirt cheap and it has more options!

[How To]:

Install the launchkey app from above
Grab the attached file below
Boot into recovery
adb shell mount /system
adb shell rm /system/app/Rosie.apk
adb push [your saved file location]\Rosie_espresso2.2_custom.apk /system/app/Rosie.apk
Reboot

Thanks dude!

Edit: Any way to change the icon to the one of the app, or at least back to the default faves one?

So how exactly do you change the icon afterwards? I mapped the button to the Browser, but it has the standard menu button on there.

It works, both CR_MOD 2.13.xxx and this version are deodexed meaning they are compatible without any issues!

I'm assuming find the image in the res folder of the apk and change it to match your app. You could download and rip them off of the 2.1 method. The contacts, messaging, etc.

Works like a charm! Thanks a bunch! I know beggars can't be choosers, but is there any way to set up launchkey so that you don't have to long-press the button?
Oh, and if anyone's wondering, I'm running CM 6.1

For those looking to change the icon, I changed it to a generic one, but you can change it to any icon you wish. No, it will not adjust its own icon, as there is no way for sense to do that. Here is what you need to do:
-Create the icon.
-Replace the one in the res/drawable-normal/icon_add_rest.png with the one you made.
-Push the rosie back to your phone, and you're good

No, this is the same way that I did it with the 2.1 CR OTA. Only this time I mapped it to an app that launches other apps I had started doing individual mappings with specific icons, however everyone wants a different app. Even something simple like mapping it to the browser ends up with 3 or 4 different possibilities because people use after market browsers.

I'm confused here

If you're not on ESPRESSO SENSE, how does it work like a charm? Did you think this thread was about the launchkey app specifically? Did you think I made launchkey.apk? Did you think this mod was for CM6.1?

This mod will only work on espresso 2.2. If you're on CM, this MOD will not work, only the APP will work. The APP (LaunchKey.apk), as is linked in the OP, is made by someone else, not me. Requests to the function of the app may be directed at him. I merely edited the code in Rosie.apk so that it launches the app instead of Faves.
