    Running SS 4.8 on my Droid and cannot use the search button on the front. I get the haptic feedback and then nothing happens. If I long press it I can use the voice search but without this I am honestly tempted to go back to stock. Does anyone know how to re-associate the button properly? Rooting has been fun and all but the headache is starting to far outweigh the reward at this point. ADW launcher doesn't freeze like the default does but I would like to be able to search to get to things instead of diving 5 menus deep all of the time.

    i would check and make sure you have the google search app installed on your phone. I know some ROMS aren't including it anymore since it's available in the market. The file is usually in the system/app folder. Try installing it from the market and see what happens. If this isn't the problem I don't have any other possible solutions. Hopefully someone else can help. sorry

    If all else fails, try installing a different custom ROM.
