    I have a Rooted Droid1, running very well. The power button is broken, it does not work. I've searched high and low in attempt to find a app to remap the camera button to function as the power button. Does anyone know if there is a way to do this?

    Thanks in advance for you assistance.

    I don't know of anything that will do that, but In SS 5.2 (not sure other ROMs do this too), there are a couple of options that can bypass this. There is a toggle for the notification strip that will sleep the phone, and you can also set the menu button to wake the phone. I can't remember off hand where that is, but it's in either Chevy's tools or the CM settings.

    LT,

    Thanks. I did find a way to do it. I had to edit the /system/usr/keylayout/sholes-keypad.kl to accompish this.

    The original lines:
    key 116 POWER WAKE
    key
    211 FOCUS
    key
    212 CAMERA

    Changed them to:
    key 116 GRAVE
    key
    211 POWER WAKE
    key
    212 POWER WAKE

    Chances are I will be doing this too - unless the Targa gets an early release...

    This fix is is very querky. I ended up sending the phone back to Motorola who fixed it at no charge. I was without the phone for about a week. This was the lessor of all evils for me.
