S-ON/S-OFF root Help? & Key Function List HELP?? PLEASE??

    1st Question:
    Ok so I had my T-Mobile Mytouch 4g slide rooted by a friend with S-ON and now I can gain access to the root menu by using “superuser” and “root explorer.” I was able to remap a few buttons using “ButtonRemapper,” which is a great program but the only problem is that it doesn’t remamp all of the functions I want. If I try to edit the doubleshot-keypad.kl file through Root explorer I still cannot gain R/W access. I can only gain R/W access in the “/system” folder. Anything after that will still restrict the access to R/O (i.e. /system/usr/keylayout which is the file I want to edit). Is this because the phone was rooted with S-ON or am I doing something else wrong???

    2nd Question:
    I need help locating key functions for my T-mobile Mytouch 4g slide. I just need to know what are the code numbers for the long-press function of the 4 buttons on the front of the phone and not the keyboard. I want to change them and I’m not exactly sure how. Can anyone help?!?

    I know the original function for the quick-press is like this:
    # physical keys
    key 102 HOME
    key 139 MENU
    key 158 BACK
    key 188 FUNC_4

    I’m trying to change the long-press function of those buttons. Also does anybody know what the button for the key number 107 goes?? It says that key 107 = ENDCALL but there is no physical button for that function anywhere 0_o

    thank you for the reply YrrchSebor0000!! i used the keynrtracker and its a very useful tool but after pushing all of the buttons i came to the conclusion that the key function 107 = ENDCALL doesn't exist at all on the phone. it only works with the touch screen function which i find strange since its assigned to a hardware button as well 0_o

    Hmm, that's strange. Yeah, from using both apps on a few different phone, I've seen that not everything is possible, unfortunately.

    As for not having RW access in the keymap file in Root Explorer... that's odd. I don't think S-ON has anything to do with that, I would think root access is root access? Here on my G2 at the moment, I can gain R/W access anywhere in my system. Have you figured anything out yet?

    not really, ive asked a couple of questions on xda developers but i havent gotten much progress on there either. do u know of any other app that might be able to get me to edit the doubleshot-keypad.kl file manually??
