Thanks for everyone who used it, maybe make a return in Jelly Bean
Modifies Search Key to Recent Apps instead of home long press.
Compiled by me using code kanged from evilisto http://bit.ly/JJ88Jl
I know there is another thread but Since evilisto took a break there have not been updates
Thus I will compile and keep flashables updated with AOKP builds and every so often with CM9 nightlies.
LATEST LINKS FOR CAPTIVATE/NEXUS. Older files in 2nd post.
*Tested for vibrant, Should work for all devices* (this thread includes fixed key mapping for Captivate and Nexus)
AOKP M6 REVERT
**CM9 has now integrated the mod in the latest nightlies and only a key edit is needed now**
With a root explorer, open /system/usr/keylayout/cypress-touchkey.kl and change SEARCH to APP_SWITCH the reboot.
You can also going into /system/usr/keylayout/cypress-touchkey.kl and edit APP_SWITCH to SEARCH to restore search button.
Disclaimer: These may or may not work with ROM's based on CM9 or AOKP. If you try, prepare the revert with android.policy.jar pulled from your ROM zip framework.
CM9 nightlies are subject to change, which may cause incompatibilities. I will try to update weekly, but please post if it doesn't work for a specific nightly and I will try to update ASAP. Also I only have a Vibrant so I cannot test for all devices.
Does not work with ICS Slim right now. Stock ICS work in progress.
