    Is there any way to disable the search icon at the bottom of the phone ?

    I do not really need this button, and i keep pressing it all the time.

    Thanks

    for what it's worth, 'Button shortcut' in the market will let you re-map the long press of the search key. It worked on my phone (rooted, but it didn't seem to need SU).

    I would like to just disable it. I am always hitting it with my fingers.

    If you root, you can easily remove it via adb.

    Me too!

    I installed the android SDK, I'll take a look and see if I can make it happen with ADB.

    i thought about this, but i wondered if it would take away the google search feature.

    GoogleSearch.apk
    VoiceSearch.apk
    htcsearchwidgets.apk

    i pulled the above from when i was uninstallin the sprint crap. i wonder which one it is for the magnifying glass button.

    Any way to disable it without rooting? I hated that button on the Droid and I hate more on the EVO. I am sure people use it, but I sure have not met any. The most annoying feature as far as I am concerned.
