Unfortunately, bxActions Pro does not work anymore after Android 12 upgrade on my S10.
I have tried to unistall bxActions completely, restarted the phone and installed bxActions again. No luck!
When starting bxActions.exe on my PC (USB Debugging is enabled), it always shows an error. Regardless which of the three options I select.
See the attached screenshot.

I had full remapping enabled before (while on Android 11) so I have no Bixby options available in my system settings. And deactivation of remapping does not work. So I can not enable Bixby to manage Bixby button.
I would be glad, if anyone has a hint or clue what to try.

BTW: Remapping volume buttons is working ... but only when screen is unlocked.

EDIT:
Re-Installing Bixby voice app from Galaxy store could bring back original/stock Bixby mapping of Bixby button.
Then I re-installed bxActions and tried to enable full remapping with bxActions.exe again. > Same error message!
But now, bxAction mapping seems to work ... with a little bit "interference" of Bixby voice.
Looks like both are active and trying to manage the button mapping?!

@Jawomo : Maybe we need an update of bxActions to get the remapping feature back?!

Hi, bxActions does not work anymore on my S10+ with Android 12 (OTA Stock). bxActions tells, full remapping is active.

When pressing the bixby button, nothing happens.
All bixby apps on phone are disabled.

What toll do? Reinstalling does not work, if I understand the previous posts correctly?

Thank you for this feedback.
maybe he can borrow one?

Edit:
Just tried another application and they had the same issue but solved it using adb commands.
I replace bxAction by Button Mapper app :)
Hi! Any dis/advantages of Button Mapper as compared to bxActions? Does it work with everything Bixby disabled?

UPDATE: Works with everything Bixby disabled. Does not have option for short press plus long press. But very ok otherwise.

I have Bixby disabled. The only thing the (free) app doesn't do compared to BxActions is haptic feedback. I liked it when my phone vibrated if I clicked the button to toggle DnD. That way I could keep my phone in my pockets. Though when I turn my flashlight on with a long press it does vibrate.

    The S10 has this as a built-in feature, no need for a remapper.
    The build in remapping is very limited. With bxActions you can remap everything as you like. :cool:
