This for ICS Passion v12 and V13 RC1. It also works on CM9 b15

This is not my work. It was coded by evilisto in the Nexus S forums. I only modified the key layouts for the Vibrant and the update script.

Here's evilisto's original thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=21501238

I do not use my capacitive search button especially with the Google search bar persistant on my homescreen so this Mod will remap the search button to the ICS task switcher so you no longer have to long press the home button.

I have tested it with ICS Passion v12. Others have confirmed it works on Passion v13rc1 and CM9 b15.
As usual flash at your own risk.

It is a CWM flashable zip.

All credit for this goes to evilisto so please thank him for his work.

You know people are going to ask for a revert zip. You have one handy?

Thanks. To tell you the truth, I always forget the search button is there. I just never use it.

Since I use the search (just not as frequently) is there a way to add the search functionality when one long presses the search button?

I would like very much to use this mod but not completely lose the quick search if possible...

Unfortunately this replaces the search function. Leave things as is and use the home long press.

ICS on the nexus doesn't have a search key anymore. Just back home and resent tasks. This makes our phones the same. Sorry
