------------Update Notes----------------

Update 1.1 (dec. 10): Added volume buttons and the power button to the list of buttons that can be remapped!
(Check out the help for some tips and additional info)


------------Initial announcement----------

For full *rooted* Galaxy Tabs (and only for the Galaxy Tab)
Tested on XXJM6 and XXJMA firmware. I assume that it also works on other firmware versions.
(Confirmed working on T-mobile stock firmware, .... )

This app will allow you to remap the tab buttons to any of these functions:

Code:
            "Lock",
            "Home",
            "Menu",
            "Back",
            "Search",
            "Volume up",
            "Volume down",
            "Camera",
            "Focus",
            "Endcall",
            "Call",
            "Taskmanager",
            "Digitalframe",
            "Brightness Up",
            "Brightness Down",
            "Explorer",
            "Music",
            "Video",
            "Media Play Pause",
            "Media Stop",
            "Media Next",
            "Media Previous",
            "Media Rewind",
            "Media Fast Forward",
            "Dpad center",
            "Dpad up",
            "Dpad down",
            "Dpad left",
            "Dpad right",
            "Sip setting",
            "Sip on off",
            "Lang"

Some of these functions like Digitalframe, Music, Video, Taskmanager and some more will only work on the Galaxy Tab. So the app will not work on other devices.
(BTW Explorer means Stock Browser).

The app is derived from this app. Unfortunately that app doesn't work on the Tab, that's why I wrote this special version. (Screenshots from the general app also apply to this version)

Anticipated FAQ:

Q: Can I remap other apps and thingies?
A: No, not in this version. Maybe it will be added later. Meanwhile checkout LauchKey (in the android app section on xda-dev) to map the long press search key to any app you want.

Q: Why doesn't my device hot reboot after I apply a change or try to restore my original button binding?
A: Check if you have busybox installed? Busybox is needed for this to work (install it from the market)

Q: Does this app solve existential question
A: No, but I'm working on an update that is supposed to do exactly that. Meanwhile you can only remap some buttons with it.


If you like the app, you can buy me 3 cigarettes (dutch, government controlled price :p) by buying the donation version from the Market

It works and is simple to install.

I just installed this on a T-mobile stock firmware tab with Z4 one click root.

If others choose to use this hack using Z4 choose the permanent option. Install from sdcard like any other apk. It will do a hot reboot and choose the remap of you choose. Enjoy.

Again very nice work!

Thanks for your feedback. I have uploaded a new version that also will allow to remap the volume buttons and the powerbutton. Please restore your button definitions and uninstall your version before you install the new (1.1) version.

Love it! Thanks so much for this... In 2 years of using android I have never once used that silly search button and now I can map it to something more useful for me.

Sprint Tab is now rockin even better than before!!!! :)

thankyou for this wonderfull app.

One question : Could i know if it's possible to remap the Wired Headset button to Cyberion Voice Commander instead of the stock "Play Music" ?

Cyberion works only with the press of bluetooth headset and not for wired ...

thankyou

ha, i came in here to write the exact same thing, every time its in landscape i always mix up the volume keys

Although I love the idea, there's a little problem with it. A remapping of the buttons require a (hot) reboot. I don't think you guys want a reboot each time the tab switches from portrait to landscape mode and vice versa :)
