Default [HOW TO] Remap MUVE button to FOCUS and (CAMERA)SHUTTER

Just got a phone, I have it on a regular plan. So no MUVE.

MUVE button has two positions, like on cameras. Not sure, but Samsung Admire may have it working the right way.

1. Root the phone (described here). Make sure you installed a superuser from the market.

2. Install root explorer.

3. Open the root explorer and go to /system/usr/keylayout

4. Tap sec_key.kl and open with Text Editor

5. Go to "# handling for touch-key codes"

6. replace in

"key 766 MUVE_SCREEN WAKE_DROPPED"
MUVE_SCREEN -> CAMERA

so it will look like
"key 766 CAMERA WAKE_DROPPED"

and

"key 528 MUVE_PLAY WAKE_DROPPED"
MUVE_PLAY -> FOCUS
so it will look like
"key 528 FOCUS WAKE_DROPPED"

7. Hit BACK button, it will ask you if you want to save, confirm it.
It will create a backup file.

8. Reboot the phone.


On active phone push the button all way down and hold to call a camera app.
Inside of the camera app half press to focus, full press to shot.

Enjoy

targon, how did you figure this out? Totally awesome!

I'm using my Vitality as a MP3 player, so the muve button/play would be more useful as a pause button for me. Any ideas on how I might be able to map it to something else?

Thanks!

Tried using this app:

[App] ButtonRemapper - Beta v0.2.4 (New Galaxy S version added) - xda-developers

But it didn't work. It would disable all buttons.

Got button codes with KeynrTracker.

Try replacing FOCUS or CAMERA with MEDIA_PLAY_PAUSE.

If you want it to work when locked, change WAKE_DROPPED to WAKE

i did everything you said, and I couldn't get it to work.

EDIT: i rooted my phone and still won't work.


i meant the paid version of root explorer, not super user




EDIT 2: I didn't realize that I had to go into the root file "system", not the general OS "system".

Remember to make that file writable. You might be in as "read only". That was my glitch/gotcha. Once the file permission is changed to writable, yer good.
