    I need an app, or some way to remap the hardware buttons on my droid 3. Such as the volume rocker, or the capacitive touch buttons if possible. Id like to have a designated camera button, that's why.

    Thanks if anyone can help

    You can already slide out the keyboard and use the "OK" button while you wait for custom ROMs that will probably be needed to do what you really want.

    You can also remap buttons using a hex editor. As well as their alt and shift functions. IIRC, this applies to the virtual keyboard as well, and has been covered previously.

    I need to remap my volume rocker to act as a shutter button...Im pretty new to owning an android phone as this is my first and all, but if someone could teach me to or offer to do this for me via teamviewer or a detailed eplanation since I don't know how to use a hex editor or anything like that, I could pay up to 5 dollars via paypal. Please, and thank you.
