Could someone post here step by step instructions how to use these adb commands for Button Mapper? I'm a windows user.

I did get it back to work by manually executing some adb commands. Just can't get rid of the 'unlock phone to use bixby' popup on lockscreen when using the button but the action is ok (to me, I've set bixby short press to screen on/off)

From any pc with adb tools installed run;
adb shell pm enable com.samsung.android.bixby.agent
adb shell pm grant com.jamworks.bxactions android.permission.READ_LOGS
adb shell pm grant com.jamworks.bxactions android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS
adb shell logcat -c
adb shell am force-stop com.jamworks.bxactions
adb shell am start -n com.jamworks.bxactions/com.jamworks.bxactions.SettingsHome

That did make it work. Disabling bixby entirely (adb shell pm disable-user com.samsung.android.bixby.agent) stops it from working though so I guess I can't get rid of the popup on lockscreen :)

Also disabled and re-enabled bxActions in Accessibility settings, both Bixby and Volume buttons. Not sure if that was needed.

Could you use the blocking function of the app "AutoNotification" to get rid of the popup?

Turns out I had to turn 'use bixby when phone is locked' on. To do that you have to disable bxactions from intercepting the bixby temporary.

You can't get to bixby setings without using the bixby button to get to bixby it seems, couldn't find those settings via another way.

Now I do sometimes get bixby screen still when I unlock my phone, not entirely sure why but that's managable.

I did try the other bixby button app mentioned in this thread, but that one doesn't do 'screen on/off' action when the phone is locked. If it had that, without needing adb commands on every boot, then it would be a perfect replacement.

wow 12 is borking everything. Android phones, plex on nvidia shield tv pro 2019.

I am glad I am using this on all my Android devices.
Code:
Disable auto update from dev options. Then type the following in cmd/terminal while usb debugging on:

adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.sec.android.soagent
adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.wssyncmldm
adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.samsung.sdm
adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.samsung.sdm.sdmviewer
adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.ws.dm

Ignore the error out if package doesn't exist.

bxActions is back.
Update version 6.30

The new "bxActions.exe" is now in "Documents/bxActions" folder on your Smartphone.


bxAction.exe for pc still error.

I then ran the following 2 ADB commands:

adb shell pm grant com.jamworks.bxactions android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS

adb shell pm grant com.jamworks.bxactions android.permission.READ_LOGS



And it works, even after a restart. (galaxy S10+)

I did the same, except that I uninstalled all bixby package
But the problem is that bxActions is only "easy remapped" but I prefer to have the fully remapped...

Edit:
I tried adb commands to set it fully, but the command gives by the app doesn't works.... :(

Good news for you.

Yes, but when I run it under windows, I have an error.....
Have you already completely uninstalled bxActions? Also uninstalled Button Mapper completely? Delete bxActions folder on your Smartphone? Delete all USB debugging authorizations in the developer settings. Then restart your Phone, wait a few minutes and connect your Phone to the PC and grant the permission on the Phone to always allow USB debugging. Now install bxActions from Playstore and start it. Carry out all necessary steps and finally execute the bxActions.exe on the PC. I wish you success.

OK, I'll try it again but not tonight... tomorrow :)

Thank you for your help, tomorrow I'll try again as you said and give you a feedback.

Hi, but where is version 6.30? in Google Play only version 6.26 appears. With version 6.26 I can't get it to work under Android 12 using any of the indicated methods. Do you have any link to apk 6.30?

Thank you.

YEEESSS!
First I also missed, that the new bxActions/bxActions.exe is in Documents folder.

I can confirm that the .exe works
Me too: Full remapping is working fine on my S10 with Android 12 / OneUI 4.0.

Thanks @Jawomo ... another coffee is on the way !
