    So there seems to be a map of the keys located in:

    /system/usr/keylayout

    I7500_keypad.kl is the active keylayout, and the galaxo rom disables the camera button by removing it from this list.

    More information here:

    Note, 'HOLD' is the lock key. So actually it IS possible to re-assign it, as well as the camera button!

    Neat! Just to be clear though, since there's mention of both 'galaxy' and 'galaxo' -- this is only possible after rooting, or with a custom rom, or something, right?

    Are you saying that, with this document in hand, it's just a matter of adapting two text files in order to basically create an entirely different keyboard mapping (such as Dvorak)?

    I suppose the key caps are then rendered at runtime, so it will probably not be possible to add extra keys in certain rows?

    You need to be rooted to get to that file. Anything with 'galaxo' in it is specific to the galaxo rom - I'll try not to confuse the two names!

    You can edit this file on any android device actually, as long as you're rooted.

    The keymaps just map physical (or virtual versions of) keys to actual letters. The software will render the letters how it feels like depending on region etc. So this is only really usefull for something like swapping the lock and camera buttons around for example. OR changing the interrupt handling on some keys.
