Moving the trackball to take picture
So my friend got a new evo and guess what? It has a dedicated camera shutter button on the touchscreen. Brilliant. I absolutly hate using the trackball on my hero to take pictures. It just doesnt work. I know you can hold down the screen to take a picture, but that takes like 2 minutes to capture.
So im trying to either do 1. Find the evo camera apk, which probably wont work with the hero, or 2. remap the the hero hard keys to take a picture (say the volume keys).
So for moving the camera button to the volume keys I would say that I only 5% know what Im doing. I am rooted running Aloysius custom ROM (great!) but that doesnt mean that I am an android guru. I have read to change the key layout under system/usr/keylayout heroc-keypad.kl
but Im not sure how to get there
can anyone show me the way?
