is there a generic.kl tutorial thread somewhere? to learn how to customize everything? I'd like to modify some long press and double press functionality. Play around a bit.

the only, only, only thing i miss from the evo-lte coming to this phone is the dedicated hardware camera/search button on the side. i feel this note is just one physical button short. oh well.

Why not just use "Swipe Pad" app & its just one finger action to camera button from any screen.

I'll look at swipe pad, but,i mainly used the button for search and long press for voice search. i rarely,rarely use the camera at all. the buttons at the bottom, physical buttons, could really have been 4 again on a phone this size. personal preference like the extra side button, that's all.

Double press - I don't think you can do this from generic.kl - you'd need to modify the framework where the buttons are received.

Possibly same for long presses, I'm not sure...

I would love to! On-screen touch buttons for Back at the left, home in the middle and multi-tasking windows list button at the right.

If you don't mind can you please share or point me to a link where I can get this?
