Hey people! This is my first post here, but I've been watching this place for over 3 years now. Primarily a Mac developer, but switched from iOS to Android even before ICS came out. I own an HTC Aria and a Galaxy Tab 10.1 (also one of those iCuttingBoards that apple makes).

This is just a zip file with all the files modified for the HTC Aria. Works great with that last EGL-enabled build of the CM9 rom in WinSuk's thread (I need 10 posts to thank him!?!? wtf?).

Here are instructions for rooted users:

1) Download the zip.
2) Unpack and you'll see the system folder with its hierarchies.
3) Open up Terminal (i'm a Mac) or cmd.exe (Windows).
4) adb push <my_unzipped_folder_here>/system/framework/android.policy.jar /system/framework/android.policy.jar
5) adb push <my_unzipped_folder_here>/system/usr/keylayout/ /system/usr/keylayout/
6) Reboot!
7) ENJOY!

The HTC Aria with CM9 + EGL, and this mod makes it a seriously amazing phone (arguably far better than stock. it runs faster than my iCuttingBoard 1st gen too!)

Seriously crippled my Aria running MunJeni's CM9 4.0.4 ROM.
The hard buttons wouldn't work, and lots of other stuff broken.

Is this intended to be loaded into ICS or CM7?

Yeah. Just flashed munjeni's ROM... not fun. I'll release a new version as this one was meant for WinSuk's ROM.

Thanks for checking and for the work on this!
I'm probably asking a silly question, but what exactly is the multitasking button supposed to look like and what's it supposed to do?

I can press and hold the home screen for app switching, so I'm curious about what this button does and what advantage it offers.

Oh, this just takes the ICS Multitasking (the Recent apps) which the HOME PRESS + HOLD brings you, and puts that on the search button, which I've never used. Ever. Ever in the history of ever. So i'd love to have easier access to the multitasking.

P.S. does anyone know how to make this a flashable CWM zip?
