    Talking For the OCD - Stop the home button from waking the screen (And Save Battery)

    I was becoming very agitated because my phone screen was continually turning on in my pocket, wasting battery, because the home button was getting pressed.
    Well no more!

    I'm not hosting this file anymore, It's so easy to do manually there's no point.

    GINGERBREAD
    ____________________________________
    Open /system/usr/keylayout/sholes-keypad.kl
    remove "Wake_Dropped" And/or "Wake" after any entries for:
    HOME
    MENU
    SEARCH
    BACK
    VOLUME UP
    VOLUME DOWN
    _________________________________________

    FROYO
    _________________________________________
    Open /system/usr/keylayout/cdma_shadow-keypad.kl
    remove "Wake_Dropped" And/or "Wake" after any entries for:
    HOME
    MENU
    SEARCH
    BACK
    VOLUME UP
    VOLUME DOWN
    __________________________________________

    Now the only button that wakes the screen is the power button.


    Dont remove anything other than what I've listed above, do not remove wake from you power button, or you may not be able to wake your phone at all (untested)

    You MUST remove wake/wake_dropped from ALL of the entries listed as only removing wake from home causes all the buttons except home to wake the screen.

    PROBLEMS?

    Make sure you change permissions as well (Credit to humungus)

    User: Read, Write
    Group: Read
    Others: Read

    Then reboot.

    Also, when I downloaded the file it added an extra .kl to the end of the filename (it was XXX.kl.kl). Make sure you delete 1 of the .kl's.


    Notes:
    This was mentioned in another thread somewhere, however that method made the search, menu, and back buttons wake the device.

    Using this method, only the power button will wake the screen.

    I attempted to make this into a flashable zip, but I suck and I am lazy.

    So far this hasn't affected anything negatively on my DX but if you mess this up, I am in no way responsible.

    I probably should've posted this under droid x hacks... but i can't be 100% certain it'll work for any rom but rubix 2.01

    Drod: I honestly think this should be included in rubix. I can't think of any reason why it shouldnt.

    Copy This File to
    "system/usr/keylayout/"

    And overwrite
    "cdma_shadow-keypad.kl"

    Now the only button that wakes the screen is the power button.

    I'll sticky this, this is a nice find. Honestly, I never had this issue when I had an X, so I never thought to implement anything like it. WHENEVER the next rubiX may be, this will be included (hopefully I don't forget it with my crappy memory)

    I've waited for this fix for so long, especially because it would keep the voice search from activating in my pocket. Problem: I copied the file, rebooted, but the front keys still wake the phone?

    Did you change the file's permissions? They need to be RW-R-R. Long press on the file in Root Explorer, go to 'Permissions' and make sure there are only checkmarks for:

    User: Read, Write
    Group: Read
    Others: Read

    Then reboot.

    Also, when I downloaded the file it added an extra .kl to the end of the filename (it was XXX.kl.kl). Make sure you delete 1 of the .kl's.

    I did not even think about permissions, I will add this this right now.

    I thought I'd like this but I didn't realize just how often I actually use the home button to wake up my DX. DRod, if you do remember to add this, please make it an option to enable or disable.

    But now I something else to play with within that file.
    DX on something different too often to keep updating my sig!
