Hey everyone,
I saw how people are suffering to change key behaviours for their S6 device, so I created an tool app that makes that easy.
Just launch the app, select a button, reassign any action and let the app restart the device for you.
Remember: You need root for that.
You can assign many new behaviours to your buttons, like:
Code:
[B]"NOTHING"
"APP_SWITCH"
"MENU"
"POWER"
"HOME"
"BACK"
"VOLUME_DOWN"
"VOLUME_UP"
"CAMERA"
"SEARCH"
"BRIGHTNESS_DOWN"
"BRIGHTNESS_UP"
"CALL"
"FOCUS"
"CALCULATOR"
"MEDIA_PREVIOUS"
"MEDIA_NEXT"
"PAGE_UP"
"PAGE_DOWN"
"CONTACTS"
"MESSAGE"
"ENDCALL"
"VOLUME_MUTE"
"SLEEP"
"WAKEUP"
"MUSIC"[/B]

If anything goes wrong, you can everytime restore the default, by clicking the big button on the app.
You can even assign the brightness to your volumebuttons, it you want so. Samsung supports it fully.
Here is a screenshot with the app running, and a volume button acting as a brightness changer:

Mod Edit: DL link removed at OP request.

If should work on any S6 variants, probably even S5 and earlier....
But the design is exclusively for our S6 :laugh:
Try it out and hit thanks, if it helped you :eek:

Excellent, been looking for something like this for a while since All in One Gestures never worked right for me and don't want to install the alliance framework just to remap the buttons.

I also second that adding long press as an option would be great and on top of that if possible I would love to see the possibility to re-assign the volume buttons to always change media volume by default, instead of ringer volume.

I've tried to add long press action, but I didn't succeed. I believe it's not possible...

Found this on another thread, hopefully will same somebody some time, this worked perfectly on my s6
if I go into Settings / Accessibility / Dexterity I can activate something called the Assistant Menu that adds a handy floating box to the screen. The box contains navigation buttons and shortcuts such as Menu, Back, Screenshot etc.
