    e.g, making the camera button bring up FX Camera instead of the default piece of crap? maybe I'm blind and/or dumb, but I haven't seen an option to map that button to anything different.

    I was thinking maybe if I deleted the stock camera.apk, it'd ask me what program I wanted to open when I hit that? or maybe just rename Fx to "camera" and replace it?

    thanks for any help or insults in advance.

    edit: I may have also just accidentally posted this in the wrong section; whoops.

    Well the camera button on screen is just an app like everything else what ya can do, what I did is, just throw the default camera button shortcut away and put the FX Camera button in its place.

    Heck, when I installed FX Camera, when I long pressed the camera button it came up with no change on my part. I just assumed it took over.

    well yeah, I've got FX in the bottom tray of Helix, but its a whole lot easier to hit the camera button. no big deal, just wondering if there was anything I can do.

    deleting the apk didn't work. now the camera button does absolutely nothing. same with renaming and replacing. welp, I'm stumped.
