1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    There are only two things that I miss from my old iPhone, and one of them is the in-line headphone controls. Is there anything that has the same functionality as the iphone headset controls that works with android, and more specifically my bionic? I tried using the Headset Button Controller app but out of the three buttons on the headset I got, my bionic only recognizes one of them. (more accurately, my bionic recognizes all three buttons as the same button)
    This is the headset I have: Amazon.com: HTC 36H00880-04M 3.5mm Stereo Handsfree Headset with Remote for HTC Thunderbolt, HTC Inspire 4G, HTC EVO 4G, HTC EVO Shift 4G, HTC Droid Incredible and Many Other HTC Phones: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Are there any three-button wired headsets known to have all three buttons recognizable by the bionic?

    Unfortunately, Motorola removed support of in-line controls by making them activate some type of BLUR voice control application. If you remove/freeze it through Titanium Backup, the remote simply does nothing. Quite unfortunate, haven't found a solution yet.

    Does anyone know any solution? I installed this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.co.chobirich.tools.mediabutton&hl=en

    I seem to have pause and play functionality, but can't get any other functionality like next track.

    Edit: I actually got it working with that app. I had to change the setting to "slow" for tap speed. I also had to tap on the actual screen for it to get the buttons to start working on the "How to use".

    There's a new problem. You can't change controls while the screen is off. It seems to be a bug as it is on the Droid Razr with ICS as well. You have to turn the screen on to trigger headset buttons again. ARGH! Motorola!
